The last two years have been quite difficult for Katrina Kaif as her films such as Fitoor, Baar Baar Dekho and Jagga Jasoos tanked at the box office. Katrina, however, is unfazed and said that she is "extremely happy and satisfied with the kind of films" she is doing.
"I really enjoy my work," Katrina told news agency IANS when asked about her busy schedule.

"I am very driven and focused about what I want to do. I am extremely happy and satisfied with the kind of films I am doing, getting to work with people who I enjoy working with, learning from new people. It is the same with brands too. It's not just about showing up on sets, but being a part of the behind-the-scene interactions as well. So, I enjoy my job," Katrina said.

Katrina made her debut in 2003 with the erotic film Boom, which tanked at the box office. The subsequent films, in which she featured as the female lead such as Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Partner, Welcome, Race and Singh Is Kinng, ended up as blockbusters.

Although Baar Baar Dekho and Jagga Jasoos failed, Katrina is pretty positive and said: "With every film, you try and make sure that you are learning. And if there is ever a point when you are distracted, may be you question yourself -- 'Why? What is happening here? Where am I going wrong? How do I push myself?'”

The 34-year-old actress said that everybody goes through a phase where they are extremely inspired and there are times when they feel stagnant.

"(But the idea is to) keep pushing yourself. Try and reinvent and make sure you are doing something new,” she said.

Katrina has played characters that several girls can relate to in real life, but is there any dream role that she wants to portray onscreen?

"For me, every script is a new journey and when the script comes to you, you get excited by that vision. It's something that has to come on its own,” she said.

It's not just films, but the actress is also grabbing eyeballs for her friendship with contemporaries -- whether its sharing a comfortable moment with Anushka Sharma at filmmakar Karan Johar's chat show or posting photographs of a gym session with Alia Bhatt.

Asked if the concept of rivalry is passe in Bollywood, Katrina said: "Actors have always been like that. There are always some people with whom you get along really well, while there are some you don't know so well. It's more visible and open now because of social media. We are more accessible to media (now) but friendships have always been there."

Katrina Kaif’s upcoming projects include Tiger Zinda Hai and Thugs of Hindostan.
