Katrina Kaif Believes Her Character in Raajneeti is more glamorous

Katrina Kaif is now busy promoting her upcoming movie, Raajneeti. A political thriller, Raajneeti, has some of finest actors in Bollywood including Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpai, Naseeruddin Shah, Ajay Devgan,Nana Patekar and finally Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. This is Katrina Kaif’s second outing with Ranbir Kapoor.

From the very beginning it has been speculated that Raajneeti is actually based on Sonia Gandhi’s life. Even Prakash Jha, director of the movie, in some of his earlier interviews said that, Raajneeti was based on India’s “first family of politicians,” which he now refrains from saying.

Katrina Kaif blames herself for all the confusion. She said that since she is a foreigner, many thought that the movie is based on Sonia Gandhi but that was not the case.

In Raajneeti, Katrina Kaif plays the role of a female politician which is very serious and non-glamorous but Katrina disagrees. She says that it is a misconception. She believes that woman’s glamour comes from the strength of her character, the fire in her and the ability to do something rare not by wearing a mini skirt. She says that the role of a domesticated woman is non-glamorous than the one she played in Raajneeti.

In Raajneeti, Katrina Kaif played Indu Pratap. She is the spoilt daughter of a political financer. Indu is very strong and does what she likes. Katrina said, “Indu is very outgoing, fiery, brash and wants everything in life. She is quite shameless in love, meaning, without any caution she goes to the person she loves and pushes him to love her back. When it doesn't get reciprocated she feels jolted and realises she can't get everything she wants, that way my character is pretty glamorous. The so-called unglamorous part comes only in the later half of the film when I am pushed to live a politician's life out of business compulsions.”

The biggest challenge Katrina Kaif faced while playing the character is her poor knowledge of politics and Hindi accent.

Prakash Jha has very good knowledge about Bihar politics and Katrina Kaif watched lots of videos of famous female politicians to prepare for her character. She even met some politicians including Sheila Dikshit and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

She also had work hard on her Hindi accent.

Raajneeti is releasing in theatres next Friday. Let’s wait and see, how people accept Katrina Kaif in her new avatar.
