Mumbai: Katrina Kaif has three romantic films lined up for release this year and the actress says that in real life she gives a lot of importance to love. Kaif will be seen in “Fitoor”, “Baar Baar Dekho” and “Jagga Jasoos” opposite Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra and Ranbir Kapoor respectively.
“It has been a while since I did a love story. This year I have three love stories that are different from each other. It is good that all these films are unique. I am lucky as all the three directors have a different and unique vision,” Katrina told PTI. “You can have beliefs and ideals about love. I know its very important to me. I give lot of importance to it in life. I have an idealistic view about it,” she said.
The 32-year-old actress however feels it is difficult to describe love. “The greatest poets like Ghalib and all could not define love. It is not precise how you want and how should be love.” The “Rajneeti” star says all her upcoming romantic films are different from each other. “‘Fitoor’ is a classic-romantic passionate love story, ‘Jagga Jasoos’ is quirky and unusual, and ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ is a very surprising love story..its a new take on love.” Abhishek Kapoor’s “Fitoor”, which is releasing next week, is based on Charles Dickens’ classic “Great Expectations”.
“This (film) is larger than life…grand epic love story …but the characters and problems are relatable to everyone. The celebration and picturisation is grand,” she added. In the romantic drama, the actress plays the role of Firdaus, a beautiful practical woman.
“I am nothing like Firdaus. I don’t relate to it at all as she has had a privileged life and upbringing and has been brought up by a very bitter mother. And because of her mother’s painful experiences in love… she wants to turn her daughter for purpose of revenge into a very emotionally unavailable woman,” she said.
“Hazrat Begum (played by Tabu) is suffering from a heart break and she has never recovered. She wants to inflict that pain in others, that is way some people react. Some people react in positivity and rise above and there are some who are bitter and angry,” she added.
