Katrina  Will Be The Face Of  The  Barbie  Doll   From This  September By Subhash K Jha

Katrna’s face will now adorn the Barbie dolls. And the actress is for once openly flattered.

“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 for nearly six months. It finally came together for the 50-year celebration of Barbie.”

At the Fashion Week on Friday Katrina walked the ramp in the small pink dress that the “Katrina Barbie’ will be wearing from September.

“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 Brabie. 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.”

With the Barbie image coming to the surface again Katrina is somewhat worried about the bubbly-girl image that she’d like to somewhat change . “So much for my attempts to move to maturer level as an actor,” laughs the actress. “I guess Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti will take care of that. But I’m very happy being the clean healthy Barbie-girl next door.”

Incidentally the doll’s look and dress were planned in collaboration with Katrina. “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.” -Sampurn Media
