At the age of 14, Kaif started modeling for a jewelry campaign in London, and was subsequently discovered by filmmaker Kaizad Gustad, who gave her a part in his film Boom (2003).
She moved to Mumbai and was offered a number of modeling assignments. However, filmmakers were at first hesitant to sign her because of her language problem, such as her inability to speak Hindi without a heavy accent. Films that did feature her usually had her voice dubbed over by a native speaker of the film's language.

Katrina Kaif says Amitabh Bachchan has been the greatest influence on her brief career in Bollywood but the one star she longs to work with is Hrithik Roshan.
I get tired and Amitji is still full of energy and still standing on the sets. Its amazing to see that kind of dedication and professionalism. And he looks much less than his age, Katrina said on the sidelines of a function where she launched Kodaks latest digital offering, the EasyShar V570.
As for her mantra for a healthy life, she said: Exercise, eat well. Youve got to be careful about what you eat because Indian food tends to be way too oily. Try to eat more healthy food - more vegetables, more fish.
I like Japanese food because its very healthy, its delicious - I like that kind of taste - not too much spice and at the same time, theres no oil, theres no fat.
The other thing is getting up early, not oversleeping, going to the gym, going to work on time.
