    Currently riding high on the success of her last film 'Tiger Zinda Hai' which turned out to be a box office blockbuster, Katrina Kaif has two another big important releases this year- Aamir Khan's Thugs Of Hindostan and Shahrukh Khan's Zero. Both the films have already created a tremendous buzz and everyone is eagerly waiting to see what Katrina has in store for us.

    In an interview with Hindustan Times, the gorgeous actress revealed that she is feeling "connected and excited" about her work all over again and her experience with working with the three Khans of Bollywood. Scroll down to read what she had to say-

    Katrina Considers Herself Fortunate For This Reason

    When asked about working with the three Khans of Bollywood, Katrina said, "I consider myself really fortunate and find it incredible that I am working with people who are on top of their game. They can only help me become better. You don't last for 25-30 years [in the industry] without being damn good at your job. Being that passionate is no joke. Plus, the actor who you are working with is very important, as you are creating something together. I am here to do exactly that; to try and better myself and also surround myself with those who are the best in their field."

    She Disagrees With The Tag Of A 'Glamorous Heroine'

    "I've never agreed with tags anyway, and I disagree hugely with that tag [of being a glamorous heroine]. We don't need to be carbon copies of each other. You don't need to be slotted into a category just because certain colleagues of yours have done a particular kind of films while you haven't."

    There Are Different Phases In Life

    Katrina further added, "We should be working in spaces where we are comfortable. Also, at different times, there are phases in life when people do distinct things. There will be a phase when I will do something different, and all of a sudden, people will comment on that, as they would feel it's a departure from the kind of roles I had done earlier."

    Creative Satisfaction Matters The Most

    "Right from the beginning, whether it was New York (2009), Raajneeti (2010), a comedy like Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009) or Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), I have always looked to be a part of cinema that's creatively satisfying."

    Katrina Is Happy With The Kind Of Work She Is Doing

    "At that early stage, I was choosing those roles opposed to more glamorous or showpiece roles. But then, a few big commercial and ‘glamorous' films happened, and that followed with me being labelled with certain tags. Honestly, I feel people do it more out of a lack of something to write, so such tags are more habitual and not really necessary. There is no need for me to dwell on it too much. I am happy as a person and with the kind of work I am doing. But I am never satisfied and want to do better work, so, I am always trying to push myself in the search for something better."

    On Working With Varun Dhawan For The First Time

    "I am really excited to work in that film, because it is important for me. With regard to Varun, I have known him for a very long time and he is delightful. He is a very genuine, hard-working and positive person. It's going to be really fun. Karan [Johar] was telling me the other day that Varun is going to be bouncing off the wall, so I have to calm him down. The film is in a great space and a fun opportunity for both of us."

    On Playing An Elder Protective Sibling To Isabelle Who Is All Set For Her Bollywood Debut

    "I am playing the normal part that any sister would play (laughs). Isabelle is really happy and excited, and is working very hard. I have been in the industry for so many years, so there are a lot of places where I can help and impart my suggestions. But the good thing is that she is independent and a strong-minded person."

    Isabelle Will Have To Face Her Own Struggles

    "Isabelle's take on things, besides the path that she wants to navigate is clear in her mind. Obviously, there will be certain struggles that she'd have to face on her own, but it's great that she comes with a huge amount of formal training, as she has spent four years at Lee Strasberg (Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, New York). I am very happy about it as she is coming in prepared," Katrina was quoted as saying.
