Because of the fact that Katrina’s mother, Suzanne Turquotte used to teach English as a foreign subject in different countries, they had to move to different countries.
Katrina was raised in Hong Kong, China, Japan, France, Switzerland, Poland, Belgium, and other European countries.
Her family moved to Hawaii and then to her mother’s home country, England when she was 14, where she lived for 3 years before moving to India.
Katrina’s parents got separated when she was very young, her father has never contacted them after the separation.
When asked about whether her father has ever tried to contact her after she became famous, Katrina replied:
He is very decent and comes from a good family and they went their own ways because of issues which are personal.
He is an affluent person, so he is not going to come back because his daughter is now famous.
She never attended a regular school because of frequent relocations of her family.
Mother Suzanne made a singing troupe with her children to sing at orphanages all over Asia.
When she was 14 years old, she won a beauty contest in Hawaii, after which she started receiving modeling assignments.
She came to Mumbai, accompanied by her sister, Christine in 2003 to audition for the film Boom.
Katrina and her sister, Christine, came to Mumbai with Rs. 4 lakh.
Christine returned back to London but Katrina decided to stay in Mumbai to make her career in Bollywood and if she runs out of money, she would go back and re-join her college in London.
Katrina Kaif’s original name is Katrina Turquotte but her debut film, Boom’s director, Kaizad Gustad and producer, Ayesha Shroff (wife of Jackie Shroff) decided to give her a new name which could connect with the Indian audience, he decided to change her surname to “Kaif.”
She was supposed to make her Bollywood debut with the film Saaya, opposite John Abraham, but later she was dropped because she couldn’t speak Hindi at that time.
The same year, she made her Bollywood debut with erotic film Boom.
She struggled in Bollywood at the beginning but got breakthrough with the film Namastey London opposite Akshay Kumar in 2007.
The silver dress that she wore in the film Welcome (2007) was worth 2 lakh (INR) ($4,814), which was gifted to her by an Italian fashion designer Emilio Pucci.
She was the most Googled Indian celebrity in 2008, 2009 & 2010.
Her Ex-boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor gave her the nickname Sambo (Rambo’s sister Sambo) after she successfully did a scene in the film Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009) where she had to climb a ladder placed at a height of 200 feet.
In 2010, she teamed up with A.R. Rahman and released a music album called Rhymeskool, to raise funds to build a school in Madurai.
She is superstitious and often visits religious places like Siddhivinayak Temple and Mount Mary Church in Mumbai, and Dargah Sharif in Ajmer before her film’s release.

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 with 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 [her] life”.
In February 2016, the media reported that they had broken up.
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.
