Portraying the role of Babita Kumari, an alcoholic Bollywood superstar, Katrina was praised for her impertinent behaviour and the way she mastered it to the core.

With ~Salman Khan, playing the role of a man named Bharat and whose journey coincides with that of a nation, Katrina plays a subtle sari-wearing, curly-haired ‘madam sir’ who becomes the superstar’s love interest on the big screen. Considering that Salman shared how Katrina will win a National award for her role, the actress opened up about her character in a Hindustan Times interview.

Playing Kumud, the Thugs Of Hindostan actress said, “It was very challenging. I think my role in Bharat is the best that I’ve done so far in my career, in terms of the depth of the character and playing a woman from 1975 to 2010, spanning 35 years. It was about holding on to a sense of continuity. The emotional journey, her strength and gravitas, the way it was written and the entire scope that I had for performance. My character Kumud is a strong woman, fun and lively. She is not afraid to speak her mind, she is not weak. It’s been a fantastic learning experience, probably the most fulfilling and inspiring time I had playing her.”

The actress further talked about Salman and how she saw a big change in him just a few years back. “Since the time I started doing films with him, he has always been extremely focused in his work. But his focus is greater now. I saw a big change around the time of Dabangg (2010), he had a renewed sense of edge to the way he approached his work. That happens few times for an actor, when you tap onto something new that expands your horizons, your potential and range as an actor,” she said.
