After showing true glimpses of acting in last year’s hit New York, Katrina Kaif is now hoping to shock her fans with a power-packed performance in director Prakash Jha’s film Raajneeti.
Even though the political thriller has Katrina giving long speeches and monologues in chaste Hindi, the gorgeous actress reportedly prodded Jha to add more dramatic and challenging scenes for her.
Sources from the film’s sets in Bhopal are quoted as saying that given the film’s intense, serious and socio-political subject, it stands a good chance of getting some recognition at the National Awards. And Katrina, being the only leading female actor in the movie, has her hopes pinned on bagging one for herself.
Ever since she stepped into tinsel town, Kat has been labeled as an alabaster beauty who can’t emote well in front of cameras. But the actress, it seems, is hell-bent on proving her detractors wrong.
Katrina, however, denies having influenced Jha to make her role weightier.
Will she win the National Award? The self-effacing beauty is certainly not fancying much of a chance, but we’ll wait for the film to release and judge for ourselves.
