Born in Hong Kong, Kaif lived in several countries before she moved to London. She received her first modelling assignment as a teenager and later pursued a career as a fashion model. At a fashion show in London, Indian filmmaker Kaizad Gustad decided to cast her in Boom (2003), a critical and commercial failure. While in India, Kaif received modelling assignments and established a successful modelling career, however, filmmakers were hesitant to cast her due to her poor command of Hindi. After appearing in the Telugu film Malliswari (2004), Kaif earned commercial success in Bollywood with the romantic comedies Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? (2005) and Namastey London (2007). She followed with a series of box-office hits, but was criticised for her acting, repetitive roles, and inclination to male-dominated films.
Her performance in the thriller New York (2009) earned her a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actress, and after starring roles in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009), Raajneeti (2010), and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), she received her second nomination for her performance in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011). Kaif’s highest-grossing films came with the action thrillers Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Dhoom 3 (2013), and Bang Bang! (2014), all of which rank among the highest-grossing Indian films. She followed this with a series of films which did not perform well commercially, with the exception of the action sequel Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) and the drama Bharat (2019), but received a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of an alcoholic actress in the romantic drama Zero (2018).
Katrina Kaif was born in Hong Kong with her mother’s surname Turquotte (also spelt Turcotte), on 16 July 1983. According to the actress, her father, Mohammed Kaif, is a British businessman of Kashmiri descent and her mother (Suzanne, also spelt Susanna) is an English lawyer and charity worker. She has seven siblings: three elder sisters named Stephanie, Christine and Natasha; three younger sisters named Melissa, Sonia, and Isabel; and an elder brother named Michael. Isabelle Kaif is also a model and actress. Kaif’s parents divorced when she was a child, and her father moved to the United States. She said her father had no influence on Kaif or her siblings while they were growing up, and they were raised by their mother. On her father’s absence in her life, Kaif stated: “When I see friends who have wonderful fathers who are like pillars of support for their families, I say, if only I had that. But instead of complaining, I should be grateful for all the other things I have”. In a 2009 interview with The Indian Express, she said she was not in touch with her father.

Kaif says that her mother decided to “dedicate her life to social causes”, which led to the family’s relocation to a number of countries for varying lengths of time:
Our transitions in growing up were—from Hong Kong where I was born, to China, then to Japan, and from Japan by boat to France … After France, Switzerland—and I’m cutting out many East European countries where we were for only a few months each—then Poland in Kraków … After that we went to Belgium, then to Hawaii, which was a short time, and then came to London.
Due to their frequent relocation, Kaif and her siblings were home-schooled by a series of tutors. Although she is thought to have grown up in London, she lived there for only three years before moving to India. According to Kaif, she then changed her surname to her father’s because she thought it would be easier to pronounce.
Kaif’s paternal parentage has been questioned by some members of the film industry. In a 2011 interview with Mumbai Mirror, Boom producer Ayesha Shroff accused Kaif of fabricating her history: “We created an identity for her. She was this pretty young English girl, and we gave her the Kashmiri father and thought of calling her Katrina Kazi. We thought we’d give her some kind of Indian ancestry, to connect with the audience … But then we thought that Kazi sounded too … religious? … Mohammad Kaif was at the top, and so we said, Katrina Kaif sounds really great”. Kaif called Shroff’s comments “hurtful”. Kaif said it is evident she is not 100% Caucasian.
At the age of fourteen, Kaif won a beauty contest in Hawaii, and received her first modelling assignment in a jewellery campaign. She subsequently modelled professionally in London, working for freelance agencies and appearing regularly at London Fashion Week.
Kaif has a close relationship with her family, and the lack of a father figure in her life has given her a sense of responsibility towards them. While Kaif’s mother is Christian and her father is Muslim, Kaif was brought up to practise all faiths and says she is a “firm believer in God”. The Times of India reported in 2009 that she visits Siddhivinayak Temple, Mount Mary Church, and the Sufi shrine Ajmer Sharif Dargah before her films are released.
Kaif’s personal life has been the subject of extensive media attention several times. She is reluctant to discuss her romantic life: “I have always believed that there is life before marriage and after marriage. Before marriage … you are termed a single woman and I choose to conduct that part of my life with absolute dignity and discretion”. Although rumours of a relationship with Indian film actor Salman Khan first emerged in 2003, it was not until after their 2010 breakup that Kaif spoke of it, calling it her first serious relationship. They have remained friends, and the actress credits Khan for giving her confidence and guidance.
The reported reason for their breakup was Kaif’s increasing closeness to Indian film actor Ranbir Kapoor during the filming of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. Although this was denied by Kaif and Kapoor, the nature of their relationship was scrutinised by the media because they were thought to be involved with others at the time. In August 2013, photographs of Kapoor and Kaif on holiday in Ibiza were leaked by Stardust; the media interpreted this as confirmation of an affair. After the appearance of the photos, Kaif published an open letter to the media saying that she was “upset, distressed and invaded” by the breach of privacy. She later acknowledged Kapoor as “an extremely important part of life”. In February 2016, the media reported that they had broken up.
Kaif and actor Vicky Kaushal got married on 9 December 2021 at Six Senses Resort, Fort Barwara in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan after dating for almost two years.

Katrina Kaif (born 16 July 1983) is a British actress who predominantly appears in Hindi films who debuted into films with the epic disaster Boom (2003). She then acted as the titular princess in Telugu film Malliswari (2004). In 2005, she achieved her career first successes by appearing in the comedy Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? and the political thriller Sarkar. The musical romance Humko Deewana Kar Gaye (2006) paired her with Akshay Kumar for the first of many films, though it was a huge disappointment.
Beginning with Namastey London, the year 2007 marked the golden rising year for Kaif’s career when all of her films were highly popular and successful. Among these were the year’s highest grossing comedies Partner and Welcome. This major box office pull was continued with the release of Race and Singh Is King (both 2008). The next year her performance in the terrorism drama New York earned Kaif her first Filmfare Award for Best Actress nomination. That year, she also teamed up with Ranbir Kapoor and Kumar in the romantic comedies Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and De Dana Dan respectively; the former was the third biggest hit of 2009. In 2010, Kaif gained critical acclaim for playing a politician in the political thriller Raajneeti, the year’s second highest grossing film, but was criticised for her role of an aspiring actress in the moderately profitable Tees Maar Khan.
From 2011 to 2014, Kaif was seen in the top grossers of their respective years and her career’s biggest successes till date. Besides a brief character opposite Hrithik Roshan in Zoya Akhtar’s award-winning critically acclaimed drama Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, she gained a second Filmfare Best Actress nomination for her role of a runaway bride in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (both 2011). She followed this in 2012 by featuring as the female lead of the spy thriller Ek Tha Tiger and the romance Jab Tak Hai Jaan, both of which earned over ₹2 billion (US$27 million) worldwide. The following year, Kaif starred as a circus performer opposite Aamir Khan in Vijay Krishna Acharya’s action thriller Dhoom 3 (2013), which grossed over ₹5.75 billion (US$76 million) in global ticket sales to become the highest-grossing Indian film of all time at that point. She also reunited with Roshan to play the leading lady in Siddharth Anand’s action comedy Bang Bang! (2014), which also became one of the highest-grossing Indian films despite receiving mixed reviews. Kaif failed to replicate this wider success with her next four releases, including the war drama Phantom (2015), the romance Fitoor (2016), and the adventure comedy Jagga Jasoos (2017), resulting to a setback in her career. Her first success in these three years came with the spy thriller Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), a sequel to Ek Tha Tiger which became the second highest-earner of the year with worldwide revenues of over ₹5.54 billion (US$74 million). In 2018, Kaif featured in two most expensive Indian films of all time—the action adventure Thugs of Hindostan and the romantic comedy Zero, both of which were commercial failures. However, her performance in the latter was critically praised, earning Kaif the award for the Zee Cine Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role – Female and a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her next release, the period drama Bharat (2019), also grossed over ₹3 billion (US$40 million) globally to emerge as one of her biggest commercial successes to date.
