Katrina Inspired by Priyanka Vadra in Raajneeti

After doing lot of hot chick roles, Katrina Kaif is now doing serious role in her forthcoming flick, Rajneeti, directed by Prakash Jha. She discloses that she has been inspired by Sonia Gandhi’s daughter Priyanka Vadra and watched election campaign videos of her to get the right body language.

The actress said that Prakashji himself selected sarees to be worn during the shooting. Relating herself with the character, she says that she has spent her early years in England and her mother is also British. Katrina says about her role in film,

“Priyanka is a young, strong, independent and modern leader with the right blend of values. My character is not based on her. I just watched her campaign videos to observe her and how she interacts with the crowds.”

Another parallel Katrina draws is between the characters of Rajneeti and those in the epic Mahabharata. She says

“Both the characters in the film and the epic share the same traits and complexities.
