Ever since she shimmied and sashayed into Bollywood with her debut Boom in 2003, Katrina Kaif has managed to capture our hearts and imagination. The lovely lady turns 35 today and we wish her a glittering career and ever more success.

She has just finished the Dabangg Tour and is cruising on the success of Tiger Zinda Hai. She will next be seen in Anand L Rai’s Zero. We put together some interesting facts about the actor, and some interesting looks that have taken our breath away.
 
01

We have not seen anyone who looks so good in black and white. Katrina is serving major fitness goals in these pictures by photographer Tarun Vishwa.

Fact: Her real name is Katrina Turquotte. She changed it to ‘Kaif’ around the time of her debut movie.

There is no greater measure of confidence than having an Instagram following of 12.4 million followers and posting close-up shots without any makeup. But when you are Katrina Kaif, no-filter is a no-brainer!

Fact: She has seven siblings—six sisters and a brother.

03

She certainly seems to have a thing for kooky neck-pillows—which also makes us want to buy stuffed toy neck-pillows and pose like her.

Fact: Katrina is half-British and half-Indian.
 

04

She can rock an utterly traditional look just as well as an uber-glam red carpet look.

Fact: She was born in Hong Kong and has lived in various countries.
 

05

Fact: Her debut movie was delayed because she had to learn Hindi from scratch.

06

Fact: She is the only Indian actress who has a Barbie doll made in her likeness!
