In Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone which heroine came first in film industry

Discovery Mosti



Katrina Kaif is an English actress who predominantly appears in Bollywood films. She made her film debut in 2003 with the drama Boom, a box office bomb.[1] She then played the titular princess in the Telugu film Malliswari (2004).[2] Kaif had her first success in Bollywood when she appeared opposite Salman Khan in David Dhawan's romantic comedy Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? (2005). Her another film that year—Ram Gopal Varma's political thriller Sarkar—was also financially successful at the box office.[3] The musical romance Humko Deewana Kar Gaye (2006) saw Kaif pair opposite Akshay Kumar for the first of many films, though the film was a financial failure.[4][5]

Beginning with Namastey London, the year 2007 marked a turning point in her career when all four releases proved to be successful at the box-office.[6] Among these were two of the highest grossing productions of the year — the comedies Partner and Welcome.[7] In 2008, Kaif's first two releases of that year—the action thriller Race and the action comedy Singh Is Kinng—emerged as hugely successful and among the highest-grossing Bollywood films of the year. However, her final release of the year—the musical comedy Yuvvraaj—was a major box-office failure.[8] In 2009, Kaif received a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actress for her performance in Kabir Khan's terrorism drama New York.[9] Later that year, she starred opposite Ranbir Kapoor in the comedy Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani.[3] In 2010, Kaif portrayed the role of a politician in Prakash Jha's political thriller Raajneeti and an aspiring actress in Tees Maar Khan.[3][10] While the former was a box-office hit, the latter was a critical and commercial failure.[11][12]

From 2011 to 2014, Kaif starred in the top-grossing productions of their respective years. In 2011, she starred opposite Hrithik Roshan in Zoya Akhtar's ensemble comedy-drama Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and received praise for her portrayal of a runaway bride in Ali Abbas Zafar's romantic comedy Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, which earned Kaif her second Best Actress nomination at Filmfare. She followed this in 2012 by featuring as the female lead of the spy thriller Ek Tha Tiger and the romance Jab Tak Hai Jaan, both of which earned over ₹2 billion (US$28 million) worldwide. The following year, Kaif starred as a circus performer opposite Aamir Khan in Vijay Krishna Acharya's action thriller Dhoom 3 (2013), which grossed over ₹5.75 billion (US$81 million) in global ticket sales to become the highest-grossing Indian film of all time at that point. She also reunited with Roshan to play the leading lady in Siddharth Anand's action comedy Bang Bang! (2014), which also became one of the highest-grossing Indian films despite receiving mixed reviews. Kaif failed to replicate this wider success with her next four releases, including the war drama Phantom (2015), the romance Fitoor (2016), and the adventure comedy Jagga Jasoos (2017), resulting to a setback in her career. Her first success in these three years came with the spy thriller Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), a sequel to Ek Tha Tiger which became the second highest-earner of the year with worldwide revenues of over ₹5.54 billion (US$78 million). In 2018, Kaif featured in two most expensive Indian films of all time—the action adventure Thugs of Hindostan and the romantic comedy Zero, both of which were commercial failures. However, her performance in the latter was critically praised, earning Kaif a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her next release, the period drama Bharat (2019), also grossed over ₹3 billion (US$42 million) globally to emerge as one of her biggest commercial successes to date.

Before Katrina Kaif: How actresses who turned producers are changing Bollywood

Katrina Kaif recently announced that she is planning to start her own production house, joining the league of Bollywood actresses turned producers like Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Twinkle Khanna and more.

Bollywood has come a long way when it comes to women-centric films. The industry has seen a number of iconic films like Parched, Kahani, Raazi, NH10 and several others that had women as their focal point. With a steady rise in women-centric films, Bollywood is also witnessing an increase in the number of women producers in the industry.

Zoya Akhtar, Farah Khan, Rhea Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor - these are some of the established women producers in the industry and have given hit films like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, The Dirty Picture, Udta Punjab, etc.

Taking a cue from their success, Bollywood's leading ladies are also taking up production. From Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone to Priyanka Chopra and Twinkle Khanna, many Bollywood actresses have ventured into production. Recently, Katrina Kaif too revealed that she is planning to start her production company by the end of this year.

Though many would think that being new in production, these leading ladies would play by the rules and produce some out-and-out masala films which would ensure box office success. However, with their choice of unconventional films, these actresses-turned-producers are redefining Hindi cinema. We take a look at their work as producers.

ANUSHKA SHARMA

Anushka was 20 years old when she bagged her first film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Six years in the industry, and the actress was all set to take another big leap in her career. At the age of 26, after solidifying her place among Bollywood's A-listers, Anushka ventured into production with NH10, under her production house Clean Slate Films.

And Anushka didn't play it safe with her first film as a producer. NH10 wasn't your regular safe entertainer that would earn huge numbers at the box office. It was a thriller with a woman protagonist at its core, some blood and gore, a supporting male cast and a gripping story.

Luckily, the film was a hit and got the cash registers ringing. The actress then went on to produce two more unconventional films, Phillauri and Pari. While Pari was a supernatural horror film that showed Anushka playing the role of a witch, in Phillauri, the actress played the role of a ghost. Both the films did fairly well at the box office. But what all three of Anushka's productions stood out for was their content. All three films, despite their box office performance, were praised for their story and Anushka, for investing in her writers.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA

Priyanka is a global star now, but her effort to back regional films is evident from her production choices. The actress has produced nine films under her production house Purple Pebble Pictures and all are regional films. Her 2016 film Ventilator won three National Awards. Her Sikkimese film Pahuna made it to Cannes 2017, where its first look was unveiled. She has also produced a Bhojpuri film Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi and a Punjabi film Sarvann.

"When I joined films, I was already winner of a beauty pageant and still had it a little easy. I got my first few films but I know that I was thrown out of those films because somebody else was recommended, who was somebody's daughter. I know that opportunities came to me because of merit. I know that opportunities were also taken away from me because of these reasons. I wanted to have an open-house philosophy in my production house." Priyanka told a leading daily.

She is happy to give new talent the right exposure, and that's where her production banner comes into play.

"My production company was set up with that in mind. Almost all directors we have worked with - seven I think - are new directors. My route is very different and it's a personal journey. The films that I make are important to me and I have a point of view that our entertainment has commercial value and it has a story," added the actress-producer.

TWINKLE KHANNA

Apart from her quick wit, Twinkle Khanna made it to the headlines last year for starting her production house Mrs Funnybones Movies. Her first film as a producer was Pad Man, which had Twinkle delving into a socially relevant topic: menstrual hygiene. The film was based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, inventor of the first low-cost sanitary napkins in India. It starred her husband and Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar in the lead role.

It wasn't easy for Twinkle to finance Pad Man as she said in an earlier interview, "When I started making the film, a lot of people said, 'Are you crazy? Who is going to watch a film on menstruation? People don't talk about it.' That was the challenge - to find people who would be ready to finance a film like this," she said.

"As a team, we were determined and we realised the impact (of the film) as the government announced that they are installing sanitary pad vending machines at railway stations and there was an impact on the GST. We did play a small part in bringing that about," Twinkle said.

Twinkle's hard work and her decision to back an offbeat film paid off, as Pad Man grossed Rs 216.57 crore worldwide and became the ninth highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2018.

DEEPIKA PADUKONE

Deepika Padukone is a new name in the bandwagon of women film producers. The Padmaavat actress is producing Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak and is also acting in it. Chhapaak is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.

Producing a story revolving around an acid attack survivor is not easy, let alone acting in it. Deepika had to make herself emotionally ready before signing Chhapaak. She said, "When I was looking at scripts, I wasn't emotionally ready to do this sort of a film. I was really looking at doing a love story," she said in an interview.

Talking about turning producer for Chhapaak, Deepika told Mumbai Mirror, "When I heard this story, I was deeply moved as it's not just one of violence but of strength and courage, hope and victory. It made such an impact on me, that personally and creatively, I needed to go beyond and so the decision to turn producer."

KATRINA KAIF

Though the actress hasn't produced a film, she has her eyes set on opening her own production company by the end of 2019.

Talking to an entertainment website, the actress said, "Yes, it's true. I plan to start my production house sometime towards the end of this year." Katrina also wishes to join the league as she said, "I really hope to put my name as a producer to one of the projects I've been in discussions with. So let's see."

It is reported that Katrina has bought the rights to a French film, He Loves Me He Loves Me Not.

With films like NH 10, Chhapaak, Ventilator to their names, Bollywood's leading ladies are leading the game behind the cameras too. They are giving a stiff competition to male producers and are forcing them to think out of the box. Their unconventional choices in films are also pushing the envelope and is adding to the number of women-centric films made each year. A change that is welcome to the Bollywood-loving janata.

Deepika Padukone will  debut as a producer with Chhapaak, which is based on acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal’s life. The movie, starring the leggy actress herself, will be her production house KA Entertainment’s maiden venture. “I want to enable films that need either a platform, a push or a voice. The Laxmi Aggarwal film felt like the right one to start with,” she had told a magazine.
