While featuring in Vogue, the Bollywood star has let her guard down in the interview, as she discusses about her personal life, specially about her relationships and friendships. As being reported her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor ended two years ago.

Katrina Kaif said, “It’s probably one of the first times in my life where I really had only myself to focus on. And when you focus on yourself, often, the first thing you realize is that you don’t really know yourself. It’s like a period of not knowing, a period of being uncomfortable because you’re seeing yourself in your raw form without embellishments and then accepting that you don’t really know who you are.”

She further added, “I now see it as a blessing because I was able to recognize my patterns, thought processes and things that I had been so sure of my whole life. I could see them from a whole different perspective”.

She has no regrets for what happened in past as she says, “the single-most useless emotion on the planet. Whatever decision you make at that time in your life, it’s the best decision you could have made at that moment. That’s why you made it! Now, it’s hindsight. Of what use is hindsight?”.

She was also asked about her views on the ongoing #MeToo movement in Indian Film industry, terming herself fortunate to not to experience any unpleasant incidents, she voices her support for the movement.

She said, “It’s shaking up the film industry. There won’t be a single person who is not checking themselves and if they have ever behaved like this. They’re probably feeling fear as we sit and talk about it. And when fear comes into it, there will definitely be behavioural corrections. It will also make it more taboo to make subtle comments and gestures in jest. But it exists across industries, and we all know that the world over there is a huge discrepancy in the amount of power women hold in the workplace as compared to men. That makes me think about the women who aren’t in big cities and not in a position to speak out or defend themselves. I do hope it will trickle down to other spheres—it’ll take time, but this is a start”.

According to the magazine feature the Bollywood actress appears to be more mature in this interview. She has more or less 40 films to her credit. For her choosing the films is not the point to prove herself any more. “It’s not about proving a point—such a sufficient time has passed, and you know you’ve sustained your career for so long, which means something. But I definitely feel it, now more than ever, on the level of fulfillment”, said Katrina Kaif
