Happy Birthday Katrina Kaif!

Remember how astonished you were when you first saw Katrina Kaif in Boom (2003)? Well, that newbie has evolved into one of the top draws at the Indian box office.

Irrespective of her questionable acting talent, it’s inapt to consider her success as accidental. This fame and future is the result of many years of repeated and insistent endeavours to prove one’s mettle.

On Kaif’s birthday, let’s celebrate successful faces that grace our silver screen irrespective of their acting abilities.

Sonam Kapoor

Even if you consider her successful films, Sonam is mostly seen whimpering in a voice that knows how to croak. More in news for her style file than acting chops, Kapoor is the star made out of slide swapping fingertips.

Bipasha Basu

Chin up in the air, Bipasha’s turn as the sultry temptress was as hot, if not hotter, as Kathleen Turner in Jism. Her confident sexual aura on screen, and frank romances gave tabloids fodder to be alive in the past. But for how long? Now, she is mostly seen screaming at ghosts and creatures.

Jacqueline Fernandez

Miss Sri Lanka exists on our screen because we always need a photogenic face to act as the amorous passion of our mindless hero. After all, a wooden face hardly hampers our song and dance routine.

Nargis Fakhri

Fakhri is the ideal one to play mute characters because such loveliness can only be enjoyed in silence. We actually wouldn’t mind if she chooses Hollywood over Bollywood.

Priya Rajvansh

Priya Rajvansh belongs to the hall of fame. She singlehandedly ruined some lovely films because she couldn’t act, and director Chetan Anand couldn’t see beyond his real life love.

Jennifer Aniston

Friends made Jennifer famous, and poor thing, she hasn’t been able to keep Rachel at home ever since! Anything and everything she has played so far is a variation of Ms. Green. She doesn’t adapt, she bores.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Her Sex & The City gas filled the hungry lungs of numerous ladies who wanted the true meaning of their life. The forever high society lady, she is Hollywood’s version of Kishan Mulchandani.

Jennifer Lopez

Her vocal skills or her widely desired derriere, the Hispanic sensation’s film career is defined by films that come and go. The public memory is that short, you see.

Megan Fox

Thankfully, Katrina Kaif has an equal in Hollywood. Megan and Kat should meet and exchange notes on their method acting.
