I was fine with painting my body blue but the director wanted me to 'act' so I rejected 'Avatar': Katrina

Mumbai. Bollywood star Govinda has just dropped the mother of all revelations: he has claimed that he was offered the lead actor’s role in James Cameron’s 2009 sci-fi epic Avatar. No, he wasn’t joking. Now Katrina has come forward and revealed that she also rejected playing the female part in Avatar as the director James Cameron demanded acting from her, which according to Katrina is too weird a demand.


Katrina spoke to Faking News and said that she can dance, apply makeup, paint her body blue, do stunts, but acting is too mundane a task for her. She doesn’t want to do such mediocre things. Katrina also said that she has rejected at least 50 Hollywood films as the directors demanded her to act in those movies. She was fine doing a cameo or item songs in those movies but the scripts did not have scope for all these.

Hollywood directors should up their game and write some non-acting related scripts if they want to sign big stars like Katrina and Govinda. They don’t know what they are missing by failing to cast these big stars in their movies. There are rumors that even Salman rejected few Hollywood roles as all those stories had a script and Salman is totally against scripts.
