    Follow us on Social Media

    British-born actress Katrina Kaif, whose face will now adorn Barbie dolls, says contrary to what people believe her Barbie is not an Indian counterpart of the international brand. She also feels that in many ways its an endorsement of how kids connect with her.Id call it a fun honour. To have your face on dolls that youve played with from childhood is quite flattering. Weve been in negotiation for nearly six months. It finally came together for the 50-year celebration of Barbie, said Katrina. Contrary to what people believe my Barbie is not an Indian counterpart of the international brand. Its an honour because Im the first Indian to be the face of Barbie. Ill be dressed the way the Barbie is all over the world, quipped Katrina.And I think in many ways its an endorsement of how kids connect with me. You cant be the face of an international doll unless kids like you.
    I like that. The thought that kids like me enough to make me a part of their doll collection is very gratifying, added the 24-year-old.The actress walked the ramp as the showstopper at a special show dedicated to Barbie at the Lakme Fashion Week here. She sported a small pink dress that the Katrina Barbie will be wearing from September. With the Barbie image coming to the surface, Katrina is a little worried about the bubbly-girl image that shed like to change.So much for my attempts to move to more mature level as an actor, laughed the actress. I guess Prakash Jhas Rajneeti will take care of that. But Im very happy being the clean healthy Barbie-girl next door. The dolls look and dress were planned in collaboration with Katrina.It is quite something, if you think about it. But Id rather not. I dont want my head to get swollen.
    For me, its enough that I was chosen because I reflect a certain bubbly wholesome personality, quite contrary to the sexy tag that I get in net polls and which Im not very comfortable with, she said. Apart from Rajneeti, Katrinas other releases this year are debutant director Anthony DSouzas underwater thriller Blue and Yash Raj Films New York.
