Today, BollyCurry gathers to celebrate the birthday of one of the most beautiful actresses in Bollywood, Katrina Kaif.

Born as Katrina Turquotte on the 16th of July, 1983, Kaif is of a mixed ancestry. Her mother is British, while her father was a Kashmiri. Her parents separated when she was very young, and as a result, Kaif and her siblings accompanied their mother on her extensive travels, given her occupation as a social worker.

Kaif began modelling at the age of 14, and was soon a regular in the London fashion circuit. It was here that she was spotted by Kaizad Gustad, who offered to cast her in his erotic-heist movie Boom (2003). Despite starring renowned actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, the movie tanked miserably at the box office. However, the film gave Kaif an entry into the Indian film industry, and she soon began to receive offers for other films.

After a successful Telugu debut with the hit film Malliswari (2004), Kaif went on to appear in Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005), opposite then alleged beau Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, and Sushmita Sen. With this film, which was a commercial success, Kaif finally found a strong footing in Bollywood and made a name for herself. There was no looking back for the gorgeous actress and she went on to star in a string of commercially successful films, including Namastey London (2007), Partner (2007), Singh is Kinng (2008), New York (2009), Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009), Rajneeti (2010), Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), Dhoom 3 (2013), and Bang Bang (2014).

At the beginning of her career, Kaif was rumored to be in a relationship with the superstar Salman Khan, who she claims, has had an unprecedented influence in her life and career. The two parted ways amicably after a few years of courtship, but Kaif is still very close to Khan and his family. Khan and Kaif even went on to costar in a blockbuster film, Ek Tha Tiger (2012), where their chemistry was well appreciated by one and all. Currently, Kaif is said to be dating the national heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor. The two met during the shoot of their film Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009), and have supposedly been together ever since. While neither of them have officially confirmed their relationship status, the duo have often been spotted at public gatherings together, and it is a known fact that they're currently co-residing. Recent tabloid reports had suggested that Kapoor was to marry Kaif in 2016, but the two went on record to debunk the statements.


To celebrate the gorgeous Kaif's birthday, we present a list of songs for you to groove to!

1. "Soni De Nakhre" - Partner

2. "Main Tera Dhadkan Teri" - Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani

3. "Paint It Red" - Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

4. "Malang" - Dhoom 3

5. "Tu Meri" - Bang Bang!

On this occasion, BollyCurry has come up with a short trivia quiz to test how well you know this beautiful actress:

1. Where was Kaif born?

2. Kaif was a calendar girl for a very popular brand. Name the brand, and what year did she feature in it?

3. What is the story behind her name change from Turquotte to Kaif?

4. Name the co-actor with whom Kaif has worked with in most of her films.

5. Kaif's younger sister, Isabel, has worked in an Indo-Canadian production as the protagonist. Name the film.

Kaif is next slated to be seen in Kabir Khan's Phantom, opposite Saif Ali Khan, Anurag Basu's Jagga Jasoos opposite beau Ranbir Kapoor, and Fitoor, Abhishek Kapur's adaptation of Great Expectations, alongside Aditya Roy Kapur and Tabu. With a great lineup of movies ahead of her, we are sure the coming year is going to be an extremely successful one for the stunning actress. Here's wishing Katrina Kaif a very Happy Birthday, and all the best for all her upcoming ventures!
