'My give away list is ready' : Katrina Kaif
As the Barbie doll range of the first Asian actress readies to hit the market, Katrina Kaif prioritizes whom to give her first batch of barbies
Katrina Kaif look-alike Barbie Dolls will hit the Indian stores on March 20. And the actress has already drawn up a list of people whom she's going to give her first batch of Barbies to. Topping the list is her niece Maya and Farah Khan's triplets Anya, Czar and Diva.
Katrina says, "The first doll will go to my sister's two-and-a-half year old daughter Maya because she is obsessed with Barbie. I'm going to London for a couple of days for work. I'll give her the doll then."
Katrina also plans to give the dolls to her directors Zoya Khan and Farah Khan. While three Barbie dolls will go to Farah's kids, of whom Czar is a huge fan of the actress, Katrina wants Zoya also (Zindagi Na Mile Dobaara)
to line her shelves with her dolls.
There are other tots on the give-away list too. "Kabir Khan's daughter Sairah," says Katrina, "She's just three but sings to Sheila ki jawani with all the words and does the steps too. That's where my real compliment comes from."
Katrina elaborated, "I will give my doll personally to all my friends in the film industry. Ali Zafar (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan's director) asked me where would he put that doll? But I snapped office or home everyone should have one doll of mine!" she laughed.
The launch of the Katrina Kaif Barbie dolls at stores will be followed by a fashion show and launch of a video introducing the doll. While the initial doll will feature as Katrina the movie star, there are plans to launch her look-alike Barbies in various other avatars too.
Katrina says, "It's a very special moment for me. It's the first time that an Asian actress has been chosen to feature in the Barbie range. My sisters are more proud of this achievement than of any of my films, which they don't have much knowledge of. But who hasn't heard of a Barbie doll?"
