It’s almost a year since she showed a keen interest in doing a Bollywood film, but actor Katrina Kaif’s sister Isabellahas not been able to finalise her debut film yet.Interestingly, Katrina too confirmed sometime back that she will not be producing the movie that launches her sister.
“We are looking for a suitable project to launch my sister. There’s nothing to announce as of now. I am not going to produce any film for sure. She is going to do the usual Bollywood rounds (meeting filmmakers with her portfolio like any newcomer),” Katrina said at an event recently.
Sources say quite a few filmmakers have sought meetings with Isabella to launch her in their films, but Katrina, who’s ambitious for her sister, apparently does not want to settle for anything less than a big project.
“Almost all the big banners (belonging to filmmakers Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar and actor Shah Rukh Khan) have launched a youth divison of their production house to specifically target the high school audience.
Katrina believes that such a project will be a good launch pad for her younger sister,” says a source.
The problem is that most of the production houses have just releasedtheir youth centric films, andit will take some time before they announce their next project. Sources say that if at all Isabella makes her debut then it would most likely be a SRK or Karan Johar production.
“Shah Rukh has already recommended Isabella to Karan. She’s going through screen tests and getting her portfolio clicked, and has decided to step out in public only when she finalises a project,” says a source adding that Isabelle has already started moving around in the social circles of Mumbai. She has been photographed alongside her high profile sister in a lot of parties, especially those thrown by actors Salman Khan and Shah Rukh.
So, what isdelaying her Bollywood debut? The same reason that dogged Katrina for years — her lack of command over Hindi. Sources say that Isabella has already got two Hindi diction teachers and speech coaches to learn the language.
