Remember the late 2000’s? The early days of Katrina Kaif’s movie career? The time where she quickly became a household name and started her journey towards becoming the queen of Bollywood? Remember her first few films and the characters she brought to life? If you don’t, here is a quick recap.
Katrina Kaif’s first few movie characters were iconic, and we will (and should) never forget them. Before she was Laila from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobrara or Harleen from Bang Bang, she was these :
1. Soniya, Maine Pyaar Kyun kiya
Katrina Kaif as Soniya was downright adorable. She nailed the part of the clueless girlfriend, and made the movie so much more fun to watch.
2. jazz, namastey london
Jazz was a bad-ass who was a marshmallow on the inside. Her rebellious nature was actually justified. She was portrayed as a horrible deceitful human being for refusing to forcefully marry someone she had spent all of 5 seconds with (which didn’t make sense). But she slayed her part as Jazz with her sarcasm, wittiness, snarky nature and constant eyerolls.
3. priya, partner
Who would not wanna partner with Katrina Kaif? Kaif as Priya, the rich businesswoman who was poor in love was so adorable! Every time she said “Bhaskar”, our hearts melted a little bit.
4. sanjana, welcome
How can we ever forget Katrina Kaif as Sanjana, the sweet innocent sister of the two most legendary goons to ever exist? She was the perfect fit in the madness that was this movie, and no one could have done it better.
5. sofia, race
Katrina was SO sneaky as Sofia in Race! (not like any one else in Race was even remotely honest, but still). Her role as Sofia was legendary and you hated her like you loved her.
Katrina Kaif’s career kickstarted with these roles, and we are grateful! She was a breath of fresh air in the industry and added a brand new (and cutely foreign) flavour to Bollywood.
Happy Birthday Katrina, thank you for being you!
