From playing a role of a simple Christian girl with stuttering issues in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani to being a gunslinging ISI agent in Tiger Zinda Hain, Katrina Kaif has essayed a wide range of characters in her Bollywood career spanning over 16 years, giving little room for her haters to excoriate. With her contagious smile and kind nature, she has managed to become a household name in a country with 1.3 billion population within a short period of time.
With her already successful career in B-town, last year she launched her own brand, ‘Kay Beauty’ in association with Nykaa, kickstarting her new innings as an entrepreneur.
On the occasion of the brand’s one year anniversary, Kaif, co-founder of Kay Beauty, interacted with Entrepreneur India over email and shared why she launched the brand and how her entrepreneurial journey has been till date.
‘Dream To Build Something’
Kaif, who has always been bold on the big screen and confident off screen, always dreamt of building something that she can call her own. From the very beginning, she has been fond of make-up. Growing up in a family of six girls, she was surrounded with beauty products and was naturally attracted to them. As she grew, and started working in the entertainment world, she used to bombard her makeup artists with questions related to make-up and cosmetic products. With time, the curiosity turned into a genuine interest for her and she wanted to learn about these products as a professional.
To sum it up, makeup has been an innate part of my journey—from runway to the big screen—and finally I rendered my love for it to launch Kay Beauty, my first ever beauty brand,” she exclaimed.
Kaif said with Kay Beauty she wanted to create something that is a true representation of who she is and is authentic to all aspects of her personality.
