Katrina Kaif is undoubtedly in the mood to reclaim her throne as Bollywood’s numero uno. The actress is currently focusing just on her career and on playing characters that would require a piece of her to be put in. From Babita Kumari in Zero to Bharat, the actress accepts that her approach towards her work has changed immensely after getting her heart bruised by her ex-flame. The actress is only focusing on the present and has nothing planned for the future, taking each day as it comes and getting through it with a calm head is what she has now achieved.
In an exclusive chat with Jitesh Pillaai, Editor, Filmfare, the actress threw some light on the phase that broke her and how she put one block at a time to rebuild herself slowly. When the actress was questioned about having a sense of ease around her now as compared to being on the edge earlier, she said, “Maybe, a lot of things have changed for me personally and professionally.
After my last relationship ended, I was forced to analyse many things about myself and my life and the way I was living it. Whatever was supposed to happen, happened. Everything happens for a reason. I remember I was getting on a plane to shoot Baar Baar Dekho in Thailand. It was January. There was a repetitive thought going on in my head. When you get stuck on something, it’s deeply disturbing. It doesn’t leave you alone. It was bad. It was sad. I wondered how could something trouble you to this level? That phase made me read a lot. I wanted to understand how we human beings function. On one particular night, my attitude and approach to the world opened up again.”
The actress was further asked if she’s made peace with it, to which she replied, “Some things can still upset you. But that’s fine. I face it. I stare at the ghost in the room until it just fades away. When something triggers an emotion, I let it happen. Like one day I came across something, which I kept pushing away. But it hurt me and bothered me. While I was doing yoga, my teacher asked, “Are you okay?” I said I was fine. She said, “But you’re crying.” I had actually begun crying. It had to come out. Now, I don’t try to push things away. I stare at them. What you resist, persists.” Well, on that note we say, kudos to you girl!
