Heraclitus said, "The only thing that is constant is change." In Bollywood, the change
is was more of a replacement. In the film industry, a woman's career was considered to be over once she got married. This rule was certainly not applicable on their male counterparts. But now, the times are changing and actors like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vidya Balan, etc. are creating ripples by not letting their age or marital status define the course of their career.
Katrina Kaif has enjoyed a successful career in Bollywood for over 15 years. She got to work with the best production houses and directors, and gave several blockbuster hits. But, the entry of new actors has increased a lot of competition in the industry.
A leading daily quizzed Katrina about the same, she said, "More than anything, it makes me happy. But it's a wrong notion and a flawed concept that I must work harder just because new actors are coming in. You should work hard on your own regardless of whether 10 newcomers are entering the industry or you are the only person in it. I feel you work hard if it's in your DNA to work hard and if that's your work ethic."
Among the new actors Katrina is close to Alia Bhatt. They even have cute nicknames for each other. When asked about Alia she said, "I feel proud of the work that Alia is doing. Honestly, I don't know others very well. Are there movie roles and maybe a few endorsements that are going to Alia now, for which I would have been the first choice? 100 percent. And is that the way things work or the way things should work? Yes, they should. She is 22 and I am not. You must accept the fact that life is constantly moving. Every day, we are moving forward. I am not 21; does that take away from me? Do I feel threatened by it? Not at all! It's the process of life and we have to embrace a new place now. And I hope there are new and exciting things for me to do. I hope film-makers see this phase or the person that I am today. And I hope they get excited to make spaces for me — in my current capacity — in their films."
