MUMBAI: Renowned bollywood actress Katrina Kaif has come up with solution to defeat or at least compete with world biggest film industry Holly as she feels that if more and more people come to theatres then in the next 10 years we will have a Rs.600 crore club too and we could be almost on par with the American film industry.
In an interview with Absolute India, when asked about the sky-high crore clubs, Katrina said, “According to my knowledge, only 4-5 per cent people are going to cinema. Now if only more people could be enticed to theatres, can you imagine the kind of scope our cinema would boast of? Maybe in the next 10 years, we would be talking about Rs 600 crore.”
“I think it is there for the taking; we have the logistics after all. It is exciting. We could well be almost on par with the American film industry, which should be great. It is a good cycle to be part of as good business means more and more exciting work, scope for new talent and good resources. That’s good news,” she added.
Asked if her movie choices depend on the financial aspect or the content, she said, “It is not like I am craving for a Rs 500 crore biggie here.
As you grow and become mature as an actor, you want to leave memorable films behind you. Yes, I have been fortunate enough to have done films which have generated huge numbers. Now I would love to do more number of good films. In the process if they achieve a major milestone commercially too, it would obviously lead to more happiness.”
Katrina has three releases in 2015 – “Phantom”, “Jagga Jasoos” and “Fitoor”. While she will romance Ranbir Kapoor in “Jagga Jasoos”, she will essay Aditya Roy Kapur’s muse in “Fitoor” and in “Phantom” she will be seen with Saif Ali Khan.
