Isabelle Kaif Exits Bollywood, Won’t be ‘Poor Man’s Katrina’
Katrina Kaif’s sister Isabelle who makes her acting debut in Jean-François Pouliot’s Dr Cabbie, a film about an Indian doctor moonlighting as a taxi driver in the US, is said to have given up plans of pursuing a Bollywood career.
“While Katrina has no interest in a film career outside Bollywood, her sister Isabelle who was supposed to join Katrina in Bollywood has decided against it,” said a source close to the family.
Hence, the family has collectively decided that Isabelle would pursue an international career instead of one in Bollywood.
“Isabelle 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 Isabelle 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.”
However, the source adds that Isabelle had to audition for her part in Dr Cabbie like any newcomer.
Isabelle’s co-star Vinay Virmani from Dr Cabbie is all praise for her. “Isabelle is 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,” he said.
