Katrina Kaif says its high time someone made a 'superheroine film', reveals she may be in talks for one
Two days back when the poster of Tiger Zinda Hai, featuring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, was released it took the Internet by storm. Loaded with weapons in a combative stance, it looked like Tiger Zinda Hai is going to be high-octane-action film.
Over the years, women in Bollywood have featured in roles with action sequences, which would give any major male co-star a run for their money. One such actresses happens to be Katrina Kaif. In a career spanning 14 years (she made her Bollywood debut with 2003's Boom), she has featured in many action films — Ek Tha Tiger, Phantom, Dhoom 3, Bang Bang, Race to name a few.
Speaking to DNA, Kaif furthered on the changing trends in Bollywood with respect to women's participation, especially in the action-film genre. "Women are doing primary action-oriented roles too. Everyone’s attempting it. It’s not that women aren’t getting action roles. Such films are written for heroines too but yes, it’s comparatively fewer in number. The men do get to do more action."
Having said that, she also pointed out that she would rather "do 50 per cent action in a cohesive, coherent, entertaining film than doing 100 per cent of the action scenes in a film that’s completely helter-skelter."
Being asked about the prospect of her being a part of a superheroine film in India, she, with a lot of excitement, said, "I really think someone should make a superheroine film. It’s high time. There are so many characters in our Indian comics as well as our mythology which can be translated and brought in a Hindi film."
"Actually, there are quite a few characters that I personally love. There are also some discussions on this, so I won’t say too much," she added.
