There was nothing that Katrina would have liked better on her birthday on Friday than to be with her family in London.
In fact, she had planned and plotted for months and weeks to make her birthday wish come true.
But then, star proposes, producer disposes. Just when Katrina took a break from her shooting in Spain from Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara to spend the days leading to her birthday in London her plans were thwarted.
Now Katrina has to return to shoot in Pampolona for Zoya's film a day before her birthday.
Trying hard to conceal her disappointment about being deprived of her annual family get-together Katrina says, "Yes, I had planned well in advance to spend my birthday with my family in London. But some scenes for Zoya's film have been rescheduled and I've to go back on Thursday, a day ahead of my birthday, to Spain. Never mind. I'll be working on my birthday and that's the best way to bring in my birthday".
Looking at the brighter side Katrina says, "My two youngest sisters Isabella and Sonia are coming back to Spain with me, so I have a part of my family with me. And I couldn't hope to be with a better unit on my birthday. Zoya Akhtar is one of the coolest directors I've worked with".
Looking at the year Katrina says, "I got to work with two women directors Zoya and Farha Khan this year. And they were both such fun to work with. I also had a big hit Raajneeti. I couldn't have asked for more. In the coming year, I hope to find love. Every girl needs someone to share her life with".
Katrina returns to India next month to face one of her biggest challenges as an actress. On August 11 she has to perform an item song with Akshay Kumar for Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan.
Sighs Katrina, "It is like no other item song. It will have elements from both Indian and western dance forms. It will blend various styles and give me a chance to perform what could possibly be my most challenging on-screen dances. I can't wait to return and start rehearsing for the number".
