Katrina Kaif’s varying style creates continuity issues on the sets of Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti

By Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 28, 2009)

On the sets of Rajneeti, Prakash Jha has had to deal with much more than temper tantrums. It took Jha a lot of time to explain the concept of continuity to the film’s lead actress Katrina Kaif.

It is said that Katrina’s role is fashioned after Sonia Gandhi. Thus, a lot of effort and styling has gone into deglamourising the usually sensual actress. She has to maintain a sari-clad look sans make up, which is far from the way she has been portrayed in her past films.

Our source said, “Katrina did not seem to understand the importance of continuity. Every other day, she would turn up on the sets looking completely different. Often, Jha would be surprised to see Katrina looking like a different person altogether. He had to summon her make-up man to get her look redone; to make it match the look in the last scene on the previous day.”

The funny bit is the fact that Katrina never seemed to realise this. She would simply say, “Main to waisi hi lag rahi hoon, different nahin.”

Naturally, a lot of time was wasted while the make-up man worked on Katrina’s look.

Jha denied the story saying, “What rubbish! Katrina’s character undergoes a metamorphosis in the film but I never had a continuity problem with her and didn’t lose any time either. She was perfect.”

Katrina, of course, echoed Prakash Jha’s statement.
