Post her breakup with Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif has become more open to challenging herself as an actor than ever before. For her friends, director Ali Abbas Zafar and Salman Khan, Kat went our of her way to perform all the stunts in Tiger Zinda Hai, even when a body double was provided to her.
And now, to play cricketing legend Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev (nee Bhatia), Katrina has finally agreed to work on her Hindi language and diction.
A source says, “When Katrina expressed keenness to be cast opposite Ranveer Singh, who plays Kapil in Kabir Khan’s ’83, the filmmaker — who is also a close friend of Kat’s — expressed doubts about her inability to speak Hindi convincingly enough to look Punjabi. Katrina, who has never before bothered to improve her Hindi, has taken up the challenge to sound convincing as Mrs Kapil Dev.”
This yearning to improve on her dialogues is new to Katrina. Time is the greatest teacher!...
