Katrina Kaif’s sister, Isabel Kaif, who will make her Bollywood debut in Salman Khan production ‘Dr. Cabbie’, said that she has no plans to make her career in Bollywood.
While speculation about Isabel’s acting career in Bollywood have been taking place, a source close to the family told DNA, “While Katrina has no interest in a film career outside Bollywood her sister Isabel who was supposed to join Katrina in Bollywood has decided against it. It was felt by Katrina that the two sisters with similar personalities in the same entertainment industry can never work for the younger sister. Katrina doesn۪t want Isabel to end up being the poor man۪s Katrina.The two sisters will pursue their acting careers in mutually exclusive domains.”
It has been decided that Isabel will polish her career in international films and not in Bollywood. ‘Dr Cabbie’ was a perfect project for her. A source close to the film said, “Isabel took on ‘Dr Cabbie’ as a starter because it was not really an Indian film but a Canadian project. Although the title role is played by Vinay Virmani and Isabel is not cast opposite him she loved the script and wanted to be part of it. Also her co-star is Kunal Nayyar who is a major diaspora actor abroad. Most important of all, Salman Khan is presenting ‘Dr Cabbie’. Salman is very close to Isabel’s sister Katrina.”
Isabel has been already earning accolades for her acting from her co-stars. One among them is Vinay Virmani who said, “Isabel is very very good in the film. She has all the star-qualities of Katrina, plus the advantage of being in no hurry to become a star.”
‘Dr. Cabbie’ is about an Indian doctor moonlighting as a taxi driver in the United States. It is slated for release in September.
