Bollywood is a dumping ground for international rejects! It pays millions for skin show and good looks. Look at Katrina Kaif!

Posted on by

International stars and models, who fail to make the grade in their country of origin, book one-way ticket to Mumbai. Here, you only need three qualities – good looks, good looks and more good looks. But Bollywood only feeds us what we like. We make advance bookings and throng to cinema theaters every time a Katrina Kaif starrer is released, making it a hit. Whether she can act or not, we don’t really care, right? She speaks dreadful Hindi but what the hell, we don’t go to movie theaters to listen to her, we go out there to check her out, to feed our sexual fantasies. We don’t even complain about her being surgically done. She is every one’s favourite plastic doll.

She bombed with ‘Boom’, a critical and commercial failure. A decade ago, she was this naïve-looking, distressed damsel, looking for some work. She was already into modeling, a profession tailor-made for those who lack every skill in the book, but can turn even the most ineffective men on. The Indian-origin actress of British nationality went on to act meaningless roles but stayed afloat. Her formula for success? Her preference for male-dominated films featuring top stars. It ensured success.

Riding on the back of male superstars, Katrina Kaif has come a long way. She cleverly used Salman Khan’s popularity as her key to popularity. The success of a Salman Khan movie is foregone conclusion. ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ was a clever choice and paid handsomely. It became the highest grosser! In ‘Rajneeti’, it was popular men like Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal who helped her ride the wave of success . In ‘Zindagi na Milegi Dobara’, Hrithik Roshan was the key. The list is long and tiresome.

I do not know what she is like in her private life, I don’t care, but professionally, she could become a case study for those who harbor aspirations of using their looks to gain entry into Bollywood. There are various other ways, of course, but this is legally the most suitable way. The fact that producers pay insane amount of money to actors who can’t act to save their lives, reflects the industry’s falling standards. How abnormal can Bollywood be? It has made Katrina Kaif the highest grosser!

Katrina Kaif is sitting pretty today and she must surely be congratularing herself for the coup! She was pretty swift in identifying the movers and shakers in the industry who could push her career in the right direction. She is also lucky to have a sex-starved audience, who upon the glam, sexy and beauty quotient that provides for the paisa vasool factor!

She latched on to Salman Khan first and after reaching a certain level, courtesy of Salman, she moved base and settled with the rising star and the next superstar, Ranbir Kapoor. Well played.

I want to quote someone here. For reputed film critic Saibal Chatterjee, Katrina Kaif’s success remains a mystery: “Here is a star who is the definitive outsider, can’t speak proper Hindi, can’t really act and yet has socked the box office, hearts of audiences and advertisers and remains the most googled B-town actress of recent times!” That says it all.

She was recently asked a question to which she shamelessly answered: “So what if people think I can’t act?”

Well, if you can’t act, you have no right to earn millions in the name of acting, then!


It is also said that it was Mahesh Bhatt who took Katrina’s first audition to cast her opposite John Abraham for the movie Saya. But he rejected her because she didn’t know a single word of Hindi and couldn’t act.
