Katrina Kaif inspires Pan Nalin for Angry Indian Goddesses
The film-maker says the journey of a character in his new award-winning movie is based on Kaif’s Bollywood career.Updated: Oct 13, 2015 21:33 IST
Bollywood actor Katrina Kaif seems to have inspired a character in director Pan Nalin’s latest film, which was the first runner-up at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Incidentally, in the film, Amrit Maghera plays the role of an actor who comes to India to try her luck in the industry, but can’t speak Hindi. Katrina, too, moved to Mumbai to make it big in Bollywood back in the early 2000s. Her inability to speak Hindi fluently made headlines on several occasions at the time.
Confirming the story, Pan says, “Katrina is a hugely successful star in India, and when we were writing the movie, one character seemed to be following her career graph. Even though we haven’t shown Katrina’s entire journey, we surely were inspired by it. We had Amrit play the role of a girl, who, despite facing many cultural and lingual hindrances, migrated to India from London, UK, to make a career out of acting.”
