Katrina is a Barbie girl

Katrina Kaif is all set to immortalized as a new Barbie and the actress is quite happy with the honor.
She says, “I’d call it a fun honour. To have your face on dolls that you’ve played with from childhood is quite flattering. We’ve been in negotiation fornearly six months. It finally came together for the 50-year celebration of Barbie.”
Contrary to what people believe my Barbie is not an Indian counterpart of the international brand. It’s an honour because I’m the first Indian to be the face of Barbie. I’ll be dressed the way the Barbie is all over the world. And I think in many ways it’s an endorsement of how kids connect with me. You can’t be the face of an international doll unless kids like you. I like that. The thought that kids like me enough to make me a part of their doll collection is very gratifying.”
Katrina was also a part of the team who decided the doll’s look and dress, she says, “It is quite something, if you think about it. But I’d rather not. I don’t want my head to get swollen. For me it’s enough that I was chosen because I reflect a certain bubbly wholesome personality, quite contrary to the ‘sexy’ tag that I get in net polls and which I’m not very comfortable with.”
So wants to lay their hands on the Katrina Barbie?
