Actress Katrina Kaif is known for her impeccable style and is always seen putting her best food forward in that space. She is now considering officially venturing into the retail space. An insider says, “Katrina has been toying with the idea for a long time. While not much is known at this stage, the project seems exciting. She has also been in discussions to tie up with big brands in different spheres, where she feels she will be able to create things that reflect her personality.”
This news comes weeks after rumour mills had gone to town about the actress’ plans to launch a new venture in India, after she was spotted attending several business meetings in London. Sources claim that if everything falls into place the actress will announce this ‘revolutionary’ project soon. And unlike many of her predecessors and contemporaries, her fashion line will include several other things as well.
It is believed that Katrina has “personally been spending a lot of time” on her pet project since “it is something that she is passionate about”. The insider says, “She is already in talks with some of the best names in the business to launch the venture that she calls groundbreaking.”

When contacted about her retail venture, Katrina confirmed the news, saying, “It’s true that I am planning a label. But it’s too early to give out any details right now. I will make an announcement soon.”
