Since Katrina hails from a foreign background, she neither know to speak Hindi nor to dance on Bollywood dance numbers. But a hard working Kats revived her dancing skills and turned out to be the industry's one of the best item girls with 'Sheila Ki Jawaani' and 'Chikni Chameli.'
But the legendary dancer Birju Maharaj doesn't seem too content about Katrina's dancing skills. A leading daily quoted him saying, "Just the other day, I was watching Katrina Kaif on TV. Us ko naachna nahi, hilna bolte hai!"
In fact, slamming the current modern Bollywood actresses, Birju Maharaj feels that they are nowhere close to Waheeda Rehman or Meena Kumari who were great dancers of their times.
