Katrina stirred up quite a fuss with her Bollywood debut in Kaizad Gustad's Boom in 2003. All of 18, she made headlines for her uber-glamorous bikini-clad role but the film was a flop and critics were harsh about her performance.

After Boom bombed at the box office and her sketchy command of Hindi proved a major obstacle in bagging Bollywood roles, Katrina appeared in three Southern language films - the Telugu Malliswari and Allari Pidugu and Malayalam language Balram vs Taradas>.

2005 gave her a breakthrough in the form of an extended cameo as Abhishek Bachchan's NRI girlfriend in Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar.

In 2007, Namastey London with Akshay Kumar made Katrina a bonafide star. She cemented her position with films like Apne, Partner with Salman and Welcome with Akshay.

A year later, Katrina's first negative role, in Abbas-Mustan's twist-ridden Race, fetched crores at the box office.

But her near-perfect run at the box office, which led to her being described as every director's lucky charm, came to an abrupt end with Atul Agnihotri's Hello (2008), and Subhash Ghai's epic flop Yuvraaj (2008).

Raj Kumar Santoshi's second foray into the comedy genre with Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009) cast Katrina opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Not only was the film a hit, their screen romance spilled over into real life as well.

In 2010, Katrina appeared in Prakash Jha's Raajneeti, opposite Ranbir Kapoor, flooring both critics and audiences alike and even winning a couple of awards.

In 2011, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, in which she was cast opposite Hrithik Roshan, proved to be a scorcher at the box office and became one of the biggest hits of the year.
