Top ten movies of Katrina Kaif

Many say that Katrina Kaif is the top Bollywood actress today. It is true that Katrina Kaif has the highest number of hit movies to her credit compared to any other actress in Bollywood at present and she also has lots of endorsements but does it make her the top actress of Bollywood? Only few years ago, we had Kajol, Preity Zinta, Rani Mukherjee ruling to the Bollywood industry. If you look at their movies and compare their acting with Katrina Kaif do you think she is really that talented? I don’t think so. In my view, Katrina Kaif is a glamorous lady and she fits in only glamorous roles where one does not need to have too much of acting talent. She is just another fake Barbie doll addition of Bollywood. Here is a list of top ten movies of Katrina Kaif. Read about them and tell me what you think?

Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye

Writer and Director: Raj Kanwar

Producer: Raj Kanwar, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar

Akshay Kumar… Aditya

Katrina Kaif……… Jia

Aditya (Akshay Kumar) works in a car company and Jia (Katrina Kaif) is the daughter of rich businessman. Both of them are about to get married to two different people but fate had different plan for them. They meet each other in Canada and eventually gets close. Due to a misunderstanding, the go separate ways but on the day of Jia’s wedding, they come together once again and Jia’s would be husband (played by Anil Kapoor) comes to know about her feelings for Aditya. The movie ends when the two unites. Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye did not do very well at the box office. First of all, Katrina Kaif’s portrayal of Jia was not very strong.
