Isabel is also a model and actress like her big sister.

Kaif’s parents divorced when she was a child, and her father relocated to the United States after the split. Kaif and her siblings were raised without their father’s influence as they were raised by their mother. Kaif’s paternal ancestry has been questioned by some colleagues in the film industry.

Katrina Kaif Career

Kaif received her first modeling job as a teenager and later pursued a career as a fashion model. While working in a fashion show in London, Indian filmmaker Kaizad Gustad cast her in Boom in 2003. While filming in India, She got other modeling offers and decided to stay in the country. Kaif then changed her surname to her father’s because she thought it would be easier to pronounce. After the bad review that followed her first movie, it was difficult to get other acting roles in India and also due to her bad Hindi accent.

She later got a role in the Telugu film Malliswari in 2004 and gained commercial success in Bollywood with the romantic comedies Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? In and Namastey London in 2007. Kaif gained more success with a series of box-office hits, but she was criticized for her acting, repetitious roles, and tendency to male-dominated films.
