Katrina Kaif is an English actress who works in Hindi films.
Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics for her acting prowess, she has established herself in Bollywood and is one of India's highest-paid actresses.
Born in Hong Kong, Kaif and her family lived in several countries before she moved to London. She received her first modelling assignment as a teenager and later pursued a career as a fashion model.

In 2018, Kaif played a supporting role in the period action-adventure film Thugs of Hindostan, marking her second collaboration with Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and director Vijay Krishna Acharya. Kaif was also a female lead, alongside Anushka Sharma, in Anand L Rai's Zero, playing an alcoholic actress and marking her second collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan and Sharma (after 2012's Jab Tak Hai Jaan). read more
