Surely, Katrina Kaif is Bollywood’s reigning diva but she is yet to master the Hindi language. That’s probably why Kat wants her younger sister Isabelle to learn the nuances of the language before she makes her Bollywood debut. The 26-year-old actor wants language expert Vidur Chaturvedi to train Isabelle in Hindi diction.

“Yes, Katrina has asked me to train Isabelle in Hindi diction. Since I am a little busy right now, I will definitely meet her next week. And then, we will decide how to go about things,” says Chaturvedi.

He hopes Isabelle will be “as hardworking as Katrina.” He laughs: “Katrina worked very hard during Raajneeti because she had to mouth lines in chaste Hindi. And the way she went about perfecting her diction was amazing.”

As for Isabelle, she has recently finished her course at an acting school in the US. And apparently, Kat plans to not only produce a film to launch her sister, but also star alongside her to ensure eyeballs. Not long back, she reportedly stated that she’s going “to ensure my sister understands cinematic and spoken language of Hindi films.”

Katrina, though, hasn’t given out any details about Isabelle’s launch vehicle. “Katrina is making sure that nothing goes wrong with Isabelle’s Bollywood debut. She is taking keen interest in giving her sister a dream debut. When she made her debut with Boom in Bollywood, no one was around to guide her. But she is a huge star now and doesn’t want Isabelle to go on the same route,” says a source.
