Career :

Katrina began her modelling career in Hawaii at the age fourteen. She did her first job for a Jewelry campaign. Then she continued modeling in London under a contract with Models 1 Agency and did campaigns for houses such as La Senza and Arcadius, and even walked the ramp in the London Fashion Week. While in London, was spotted by Kaizad Gustad, who casted Katrina in his 2003 film, Boom, which sank without a trace. She moved to Mumbai and was offered a number of modeling assignments. Initially all filmmakers were hesitating because she could not speak Hindi. Movie offers initially trickled in owing largely to her unfamiliarity with Indian languages. In 2004, she played the part of Princess Malliswari in the Telugu movie Malliswari, followed by another Telugu film, Allari Pidugu.

Kaif made her acting debut in 2003 with Kaizad Gustad's Boom, which bombed at the box office. Later, Kaif made appearances in moderately successful films such as Sarkar (2005) and Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005), which helped boost her image in the industry. In 2006, Kaif was largely appreciated for her role as Jia A. Yashvardhan from the film Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, but the film didn't do very well. Then she gave some hit films like Apne, Partner and Welcome.

It was only in 2007, when Kaif appeared in Vipul Shah's Namastey London, that she started gaining critical acclaim. This was followed with such films as Partner (2007), Welcome (2007), Race (2008), Singh Is Kinng (2008). Because of her British heritage, she has been seen playing the role of a Non-Resident Indian rather well in several films.  The film was a big success at box office. Then later that year she starred in film Yuvvraaj which was a flop.
In year 2009 she starred film New York with John Abrahm which was again a hit. Then she played a small role as a biker chick in film Blue, which went average on box office. Later that year she came in film Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani and De Dana Dan which were a hit.

She has since appeared in critically and commercially successful films like Prakash Jha's political thriller Rajneeti (2010) and Zoya Akhtar's dramedy Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011). She took Hindi classes to hone her character in Rajneeti to perfection, which promoted her image as a professional and hard-working actor. In 2010, she was nominated for her first Filmfare Best Actress Award for her portrayal of Maya, a loving wife and friend in New York. In addition to lead roles, Kaif has also garnered recognition for her item numbers such as "Zara Zara Touch Me" from Race (2008), "Sheila Ki Jawaani" from Tees Maar Khan (2010) and "Chikni Chameli" from Agneepath (2012). Having done so, Kaif has thus established herself as a leading contemporary actress of Bollywood.
