MUMBAI: Model-turned-actress Katrina Kaif has inked a two-film deal with Studio 18 for Rs 60 million (Rs 6 crores). Kaif now joins the ranks of Bollywood actresses like Aishwarya Rai and Kareena Kapoor in terms of fees.
Kaif recently also signed a film with Yash Raj Films being directed by Kabir Khan, where she stars opposite John Abraham. She also has another film with Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision opposite Akshay Kumar and Sanjay Dutt titled Blue.
Incidentally, Kaif had a 100 per cent record last year with Namaste London, Partner, Apne and Welcome being hits. And with her forthcoming films like Race, Main Yuvraaj, Singh Is Kinng amongst others, due for release this year, Kaif has a lot to look forward to.
Says Kaif, “I have signed up with Studio 18 for two films, but am not in the position to reveal details, as I have signed a confidentiality contract. Besides there is a comfort level associating with them since I have worked with them in Namaste London, Welcome and Singh Is Kinng. And both, the script as well as the directors, are simply brilliant.”
Studio 18 CEO Sandeep Bhargava added, “We have signed Katrina for two films. Besides being hardworking, she has matured as an actress a great deal. But beyond that I can’t reveal any details of the deal.”
