Bollywood actor Katrina Kaif gets scared easily, and that’s why she likes to stay away from horror films. She opened up about it during a conversation on IMDb original series The Insider’s Watchlist.
Asked if there is a genre she doesn’t watch, Katrina said: “Horror.
I’m too scared, it scares me. I don’t want to be scared.” But the actor has some ‘go-to’ movies.
“Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan, Hugh Grant movies can really get you out of a bad mood. Sleepless in Seattle, Pretty Woman, Four Weddings and a Funeral — there’s an innocent, pure, joyous quality about those films,” she said, adding that Gossip Girl is her guilty pleasure.
She said she is a big fan of “classic cinema, with spectacle and the songs and the drama”.
Is there a film that made her want to be an actor? “Yes, but it was an English film: Gone with the Wind and MGM musicals like Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Singin’ in the Rain — this kind of show-girl performance, you know, razzmatazz, that’s the kind of films I grew up on. Everything, White Christmas – you know, Bing Crosby, I just found everything very ideal and dreamy and perfect.”
That made you want to act? “Yeah, but that for me honestly was also kind of also the way I came into cinema. With that kind of aspect of larger-than-life films, songs, grand, grandiose, scale, glamour spectacle.”
Now, she is looking forward to a prequel to Game of Thrones. “I think it has Naomi Watts in it. Girls, I don’t know if they’re up for another season but I absolutely loved the show”.
