Katrina Kaif has been working hard to stay in shape — first for Ek Tha Tiger, which is nearing completion, and now for Dhoom 3. Now, she may just sign an endorsement deal with a leading UK-based fitness brand that wants to associate with her.
The actor has been training abroad on and off between shoots. She practises hard-core gymnastics with a special instructor and is even following a macrobiotic diet, which is high in natural, unprocessed foods, complex carbohydrates and vegetables. And it’s this dedication that’s putting her forward in the international brand market.
A source tells us, “Katrina has been approached by one of London’s leading fitness brands to associate with them. In fact, she’s the first ever Bollywood actor to be asked to become the face of the brand. They were highly impressed with the way she has been training for her films, especially Dhoom 3.”
Stating that Katrina doesn’t advocate being thin, the source continues, “She isn’t a size zero and neither is she on the heavier side. She believes in being fit and healthy, and that’s what caught the eye of the brand.”
No deal has been signed yet, but the source claims that Kat has been offered a whopping amount — a few crores — and if all goes well, she’ll soon sign on the dotted line.
The source adds, “The brand is hugely popular all over Europe. Apart from her fitness level, Katrina is from London and is a known face there, which is why they approached her. It could do wonders for them as there are plenty of Asians based in the UK.”
We tried contacting Katrina to confirm the news, but she remained unavailable for comment.
