I saw the real me in 'New York': Katrina Kaif


Thu, Jun 18, 2009 16:22 IST

Katrina Kaif Katrina Kaif says her character Maya in the Yashraj film 'New York' is very close to her real self.

Just a week remains for New York to hit theatres and Katrina Kaif, along with her co-stars John Abraham , Neil Nitin Mukesh , Irrfan Khan and director Kabir Khan is busy promoting the film. The cast and crew held a press conference in Mumbai in which they answered questions related to the film.

"I saw the real me in the film. When I first asked director Kabir Khan about my character, he told me that Maya is like every girl... 'she is you without make up and costumes'...I realised that he was telling me to be myself in the film," Katrina told a news agency about her role in the film.




In the film, Kat plays Maya, an Indian girl born and brought up in New York. Neil plays a middle-class Indian guy named Omar who comes to study in New York where he meets Samir (John) an athletic, good-looking man quite popular in New York State University. The three become friends but their world collapses after 9/11 attacks.

Speaking to the agency, John says the film doesn't do any jingoistic America bashing.

"It dwells on how the world and America looks at a certain community after the (9/11) attacks and vice versa. But it is not a jingoistic America bashing film. It shows both sides of the coin," John is quoted as saying.

Katrina who's so far been eye-candy in comedy films with Akshay Kumar or Salman Khan says it's important for an actor to experiment with the roles like the one she has in 'New York'.

"...if you stagnate, the growth is over. I have done many comedy films. Success of films like Partner , Singh Is Kinng gets you to a very wide audience reach. But for greater gains, you need to take greater gambles. If it works, you get respect and recognition," the 24-year-old beauty said.

'New York' is set to release on June 26.
