One of eight sisters and has a brother. Katrina was born to a Kashmiri father and English mother.
Was born in Hong Kong and then moved to Hawaii till she was about 14, then she moved to London. Presently, she lives in Mumbai.
Besides walking the ramp for several top designers and being on magazine covers, Katrina has also been the stunning face of Estelle jewelery, Lakme, Pantene, Veet, Kodak cameras, L'Oreal, Samsung, LG etc. Her move to India: "I am a model and have done a lot of shows in London. I came here to shoot for [Kaizad Gustad's] Boom. I was gonna go back... my mom's in London. But I just decided to stay on because I was getting a lot of offers and a lot of good work."
Katrina saw success with the 2005 film Sarkar where she played the brief role of Abhishek Bachchan's love interest. Her next release, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2006) was a big hit, she was paired opposite her real life boy friend Salman Khan, it earned her an award at the Stardust Award for breakthrough female performance

Favorite designers : Tarun Tahilani, Rocky S, Armane, Versace, Miu Miu, Rina Dhaka
Favorite Attire : Jeans and T-shirt (casuals) and ethnic Indian wear when it comes to formals
Favorite Co-Star : Akshay Kumar she once said that she follows Akshay blindly when it comes to signing a movie wid him no wonder they share the most amazing chemistry ever
Favorite movies : Umrao Jaan(of course the old one!) , Gone with the Wind and Casablanca
Favorite perfume : Gucci Rush
Fashion Gyaan : "It's not my style to either wear minimum clothes, to strip or to even be comfortable with a sex-symbol label. I just want to do good work instead of sporting such meaningless tags. Sex sells, but to a small extent, not always. And this is what filmmakers have to accept. The exposure has to be relevant to the film and its characters and not forced for the sake of titillation. On the contrary, some of the greatest Indian films have been devoid of all these sexual trappings. I know my comfort zone in today's Indian culture and society."She is very particular about her clothes which she wears. She says that is comfortable in not-so-revealing clothes in personal life and she hates make up.
Skin care : "I drink lots of liquids, and juices minus the sugar. I remind myself to drink water regularly and exercise for at least an hour daily."
Exercise Regime : "Exercise is a must. It doesn't have to involve going to the gym daily. It could be some form of exercise like running, a breathing exercise, jumping ropes, or anything else to keep the body active."
Hair care : "I use shampoo and conditioner in moderation and take care not to expose my hair to the sun too much."
Describing herself : "I am moody and a Cancerian to the boot. Even a small thing can change the entire mood, but I'm working on that. Besides, I'm also loyal and possessive".

"Katrina is one of the most beautiful actresses on screen. She is among the top 10 in the industry. She has a very expressive face. She's hardworking, friendly and acts well. In Yuvraj, my next, she looks like a fairy queen. She evolves as an actress with every film. Her HOT factors would be her divine quality and her gorgeous face." Subhash Ghai (Filmmaker/Director)
"Katrina is lucky for us and she is talented as well. She is a nice hard-working girl, very professional and thoroughly cooperative. She takes a keen interest in various aspects of filmmaking, her scenes, dialogue... She is a superb actress. In fact, she is perfect as an actress." Ramesh Taurani (Producer), RACE)
"Katrina was the most natural choice for Namastey London. She was extremely focused, dedicated and passionate about her work. She's made a mark for herself in the industry and will only get bigger. She looks great, presents herself well and has been improving as an actress with every film."
Vipul Shah (Director/Producer), NAMASTEY LONDON, SIINGH IS KING)
"Katrina is someone I really wanted to work with. When I was shooting with her, she helped me a lot. You have to be a good human being to be a good professional," Amit Purohit (Model/Actor)
"Katrina is very desi. She could be from videsh, but she is sabse desi, I admire Katrina a lot. We made our debut in the same year. To come from a different country with language problems and yet make it in Bollywood is commendable. I loved her work in New York." Priyanka Chopra (Actress)
"She so beautiful that she has a face that can launch almost a thousand cosmetics, she is been in a series of successful films and she is here to stay" Karan Johar (Director/Host)
" I think Katrina is going to surprise the audience with the way she held the film together and the way she's performed" Vipul Shah (Director) on Katrina's performance in Namastey London
I think Katrina is the cutest too. The most important thing in life is to be a nice human being which she is. She is the prettiest and sexiest woman today but at the same time she is so down-to-earth. She's a great friend. She is versatile, fleksible, fit and lovely to wok With" Neil Nitin Mukesh (Actor)
"I think Katrina is extremely gifted, she is very fast on pick ups and very quick at delivering it" Rajiv Surti (Choreographer)
"Having worked with Katrina in Partner she gives you this huge complex I think she is really hard working, I think she knows the fact that may be coming into this industry, I think she is really dedicated, she knows this is where she wants to be and she is going to go all out to get it, and I really admire that" Lara Dutta (Actress)
"Katrina is a wonderful person, She's absolutely stunning and a great co-star. It was fun working with her in New York, she's a person who's not only got a great on-screen presence but an off-screen one as well." John Abraham (Actor)
It's not my style to either wear minimum clothes, to strip or to even be comfortable with a sex-symbol label. I just want to do good work instead of sporting such meaningless tags. Sex sells, but to a small extent, not always. And this is what filmmakers have to accept. The exposure has to be relevant to the film and its characters and not forced for the sake of titillation. On the contrary, some of the greatest Indian films have been devoid of all these sexual trappings. I know my comfort zone in today's Indian culture and society.
Her thoughts on Bollywood accepting her, being an outsider British girl, into Indian cinema: "I have no complaints. I think I'm especially lucky. As you said, I've come from outside and I'm not even anywhere closely connected. But I have absolutely no problem here. People have been more than welcoming, even before I was ready. There was a time when I felt that I need to take time to understand more about the industry, the workings of it. I was doing my modeling, which I really wanted to do at the time. So that's why even my entry into films was later than people expected." (Stardust magazine, July 2006)
"I've been very blessed, I think, or what do you call it... mmm... lucky to get at this stage what I have. It's not like I've come from acting school and done work at an academy or something. I feel I've been given a very huge chance and opportunity." (Stardust magazine, July 2006)
My Hindi was bad about three years ago. I wanted to achieve a certain status in modeling. Through that I got confidence to get into movies. Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya? (2005) came at the right time. I had done kathak training which apart from teaching you about dancing also teaches you about emotions. After that experience, I feel this year will be a much better year for me.
I think I have been very lucky so far. I have done a lot of ads and also some films down south. People have liked me. I guess I have found a balance.
Wait and watch. Jee Karda should be on air later this month. We shot at 4am every day to capture the light and it was scorching. To keep cool we would stay in shades and sip fruit juice or mint tea.
Egypt is among the most beautiful countries I have visited - the pyramids, the temples and the landscape are absolutely exotic. I even enjoyed the barbecue dinner on a boat on the Nile. We shot in a number of places and I've come back with fond memories of my trip.
I unwind myself by taking off the costume and make-up as soon as the shoot is over! And get a spa treatment. It is extremely relaxing. Unfortunately, the kind of lifestyle and schedule we have, we hardly get time. Not only actors, but I have seen a lot of directors and journalists with skin problems and believe me, all that can be cured by a spa treatment.
Salman Khan did not help me get movie offers. What rubbish! Will any producer take a risk of millions of rupees at the instance of any person? Everyone knows that the film industry is highly competitive, and one gets a job on one's talent only and not on any recommendation.
Every one has her own love life. Every one has a dream to get a perfect life partner. But this is not so easy in real life. In fact, one doesn't love, it happens. As far as I am concerned, I love a boy who is linked with the film industry. However, I shall not name him. You never know what may happen in future.
