Katrina where were you till now? 

I was never a fan of Katrina Kaif, I hated her actually. She has worked with some of the big names in Bollywood – all three Khans – that is something, but I was never pleased with her performance. Did not like her “Kamli” dance, neither her character in “Raajneeti”, not even “Ek Tha Tiger” or “Namastey London”, for me she was always an over-the-top actress. But I was blown away when I saw her in “Kala Chashma”. My expression was “Oh my god! She looks fab.” But soon I realised that ‘fab’ was an understatement. 

I eagerly waited for the trailer of her movie “Baar Baar Dekho”. And man, I was in awe of her performance. She looked like a dream. Sidharth Malhotra is one of my favourite actors in Bollywood, but honestly, I did not even care about him. All I wanted to see was Katrina. It was like she has cast some spell on me.

Whether it was dancing to the tunes of “Nachde Ne Saare” like any bride would want to do or expressing her love in “Sau Aasmaan” like anyone in love would want to do, it’s like Katrina has given her heart and soul to this movie. An actors job is to act, and that’s what she has been doing till now, but to give life to a character is not something many people can do. Well, from what I have seen in trailer and the songs, it looks like Katrina has brought alive her character Diya. 

Not to miss her sculpted body and those sexy dance moves with which she grooves in “Kaala Chashma”. 

Also her chemistry with Sid looks so perfect. There is a dialogue in the movie where the actor says “Jai+Diya = Love”, well I feel Sid+Kat = a perfect story and a blockbuster. And I would definitely want to see them together in other movies too. 

Not just in the movie, their chemistry during promotions too is also worth mentioning. They look so at ease with each other. 

But all said and done, I expect the movie to show me more of her and hopefully my perception about her being an over-the-top actress will change forever. 

I don’t know where Katrina was lost all this while, but she is here now, so ladies watch out. 

Directed by Nitya Mehra, “Baar Baar Dekho” will hit the screens on September 9.
