As you read this, Katrina Kaif will have landed in the Queen’s country for a short holiday. She plans to spend a week in London, celebrating Christmas and bringing in the New Year with her mother and sisters. “We’re all going to be home together,” beams the 27-year-old actor, who is taking her first break from work in a year. “I have a lot to chat about with all of them. I haven’t had enough time to spend with them. I can’t wait to begin the celebrations at our London home.”
Katrina, currently on a high after her item number Chikni Chameli… for Agneepath has become one of the most talked about songs this year, says she doesn’t intend to think of work while she is with her loved ones. “When I’m out working, I try not to bring family talk to the sets.
And now, while I’m on this little holiday, I wouldn’t like to bring up shop at the dinner table either,” she asserts.
“I think this year has ended on a lovely note with Chikni.... I didn’t know people would like it so much,” she opines, adding, “Karan Johar was extremely convinced about its reception by the audience. When I saw Ganesh Acharya’s choreography and the kind of rehearsals he took me through, I was sure we were headed in the right direction. It was an eventful year, and I hope the next has a lot of action on offer.”
The actor, brand ambassador of Panasonic’s range of air conditioners, which launched a new series for businesses and regular consumers last week, is expected to fly back to Mumbai sometime in the first week of January.
Her date diary, at the moment, seems packed with Ek Tha Tiger, Yash Chopra’s untitled romantic film and Dhoom 3.
Meanwhile, Dharma Productions has announced that the Dostana sequel, for which Katrina, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham gave the nod three years ago, will also roll this year.
With four big films lined up in a calendar year, isn’t she biting into more than she can chew? “I know the statuses of Dhoom 3, Yashji’s film and Ek Tha Tiger. We haven’t even discussed the Dostana sequel after we gave the nod a while ago,” Katrina informs.
“Once I’m back, all of us will sit together and check how each of us is placed in the year and discuss other details of the project. And once I know what’s happening, I’ll know which part of the year I’m going to be in London again, this time, to shoot for Dostana 2.”
