She has worked very hard to reach the position. But, success has both positives and negatives. Here, we look at some of the rumours surrounding her…

Shocking! Katrina Kaif pregnant?
The speculation was rampant that Katrina is expecting a baby with her long-time partner after she was spotted with a prominent stomach bulge. The rumours have been doing the rounds for a while now. And, apparently started during a romantic dinner date at a place near her residence. A source has revealed to online portal that, “She twice made toasts … by drinking water instead of wine,” adding that it is “highly unusual” to “toast with anything but a full glass of wine.” (In case you weren’t aware, pregnant ladies aren’t supposed to drink alcohol.)

Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif’s break up
Ranbir and Katrina are seen togegher in ‘Jagga Jasoos’. During the promotion of the film, there were cold vibes between them. Reportedly, Ranbir has officially moved out of the couple’s Carter Road penthouse and is living in his own flat in the suburbs. It is being suggested that problems started with Ranbir’s fondness for his ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone. The two were spending a lot of time together during the promotions of Tamasha. Though it worked for the promotion of the film, back home it irked his girlfriend Katrina. When asked how she felt about the exes working together, she was quoted saying, ‘I can’t enforce my will on the people in my life. Their choices are their own. I may not be happy with them but I hope that as they mature, their choices will change.’

Katrina Kaif’s ‘real age’ and plastic surgery rumours
Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif’s excessively swollen and stiff cheeks have been a major source of controversy among industry insiders who are familiar with the way botox and fillers work. Katrina’s new face has been garnering more shocked stares than even her sexy, enviable, and headline-making abs. All thanks to model and former Bigg Boss contestant, Diandra Soares’ eye-opening Facebook post on dealing with ageism naturally that saw her take a sly dig at Katrina Kaif.

Katrina had posted a video, trying to show the world that a routine akin to Korean skincare’s viral “Jamsu” routine, is the secret to her radiant, even vitalised skin. Calling it her own ice bucket challenge, Katrina is seen doing a Justin Bieber in the video, making a jump right over into cold, cold water.

Is Aditya Roy Kapur dating Katrina Kaif?
Aditya was linked up with Shraddha Kapoor, after featuring in ‘Aashiqui 2. But it was shocking to hear about his link-up with Katrina Kaif. The rumours started during ‘Fitoor’. It is also said that Katrina and Ranbir’s break up reason could be Aditya Roy Kapur.

While in conversation with a leading daily, Aditya said, “Sometimes, you go for dinner with a friend and things get blown out of proportion — that’s ridiculous. It’s like you can’t go to a friend’s house without being linked to her (Katrina). I don’t want to overthink and stop interacting with people because of this. After a while, you stop worrying about the repercussions and let people make their own assumptions. You get used to it; else, you won’t be able to have a conversation with anyone.”

Displeased with link-up rumours
Katrina was too pleased with reports linking her to Aditya. According to a report in, “Katrina has expressed her displeasure over these constant link-up rumours. The report further suggests that the Phantom actor is irked that she is linked to every man that she steps out with and call it ‘unfair’.”

Story behind rumours of Katrina’s driver manhandling a fan
Reportedly, an ardent fan of Katrina Kaif was assaulted by her driver while screaming for a selfie with the star. However, what very few know is that the fan forcefully tried to break into the building, flouting all security rules and jeopardising her safety. A source revealed to Deccan Chronicle, “Katrina Kaif has always been very respectful of her fans and even interacts with them whenever she can, both over social media and when they approach her in person. It was only recently that a fan followed her vehicle into the building premise and forcefully tried to break in. When the fan broke into the building and entered the gate, he was given a warning. When he continued, despite several requests, Katrina’s driver had to step in and keep him away for security reasons as she does not roam with personal bodyguards. Katrina or her entourage would never consciously hurt or offend anyone and this episode was a pure breach of security and entirely for her safety as a woman.”

Almost cast opposite Prabhas in Saaho
After the Baahubali success, Prabhas is gearing up for upcoming film, Saaho. There were many actresses’ names which cropped up for the female lead — Anushka Shetty, Disha Patani, Shraddha Kapoor and also Kat. But the latest report is Katrina is not a part of Saaho. A source close to the project, said, “Katrina Kaif is not in Saaho. She could’ve been part of it, as we had chased her for six months. This was before the release of Baahubali 2, when she didn’t think working with Prabhas was worth her while. So, after pursuing her for six months, we gave up on the idea of signing her for the movie. Now, when Baahubali 2 has turned out to be a much bigger success than expected, Kat’s team is spreading stories of her presence in Saaho. It’s just not true.”

No Katrina cameo in ‘Tubelight’
The actress is training rigorously for her upcoming film Tiger Zinda Hai. The film also stars ‘Salman Khan’. But before Salman Khan and Katrina could move to Austria to shoot the first schedule, there were rumours that Kat will be seen in a special cameo in Kabir Khan’s Tubelight. Reports were that Kabir has got his favourite heroine on board for an appearance. When Kat was asked if she’s doing a guest appearance, she replied back saying, “No.”
