Isabelle Kaif is the younger sister of Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif. Isabelle recently revealed in an interview that she auditioned for a few movies before her first one — Time To Dance — came through.
In an exclusive interview with Hindustan Times she said:
“I had auditioned for a few films, and this one came through. I was a dancer as a kid, and dancing is, of course, a big part of Bollywood. It’s a passion for me. So, I thought it would be a challenge, and fun”
‘Time To Dance’ also stars Sooraj Pancholi & Waluscha De Sousa in the lead roles and was released on March 12, 2021.
While opening up on the kind of influence Bollywood has had on her during her growing up years, Isabelle who wrapped up shoot for her next film, ‘Suswagatam Khushaamadeed’, said that ‘dancing lead her to act’.
She also revealed that her interest in acting was in no way connected to the fact that her sister was an actor. In fact, Isabelle Kaif said that while growing up she used to watch Hindi films & she always had a hard time choosing her favorite one.
In an interview, She said:
“I watched Hindi films growing up, and I’ve had a hard time choosing a favorite. It depends on my mood. I love Jab We Met, Lagaan, I’ve watched it so many times as a teenager.”
Isabel also said that people have been comparing her with her sister for years, and now she’s used to it. She further added it was no longer very useful to her. Talking about her expectations she said that the situation was so different that the coronavirus actually removed some of that pressure from her first movie. She said that this allowed her to enjoy the moment of unfolding.
When she was asked about the inescapable comparisons with sister Katrina Kaif, Isabelle Kaif said:
“I know it. People have been doing it for years, and I’ve got used to it by now. It doesn’t really play on me too much anymore.”
