Bollywood babe Katrina Kaif may appear to be a delicate darling but she surprised all with her high octane stunts and physically tough scenes in films like DHOOM 3 and EK THA TIGER. And BANG BANG too, looks no less, keeping in mind it is the official remake of the Hollywood film KNIGHT AND DAY.

Ask Katrina how she manages to cope up with the physical requirement and she explains, ''Physical preparation differs based on which film I am doing and what the narrative demands of me. If you talk of fitness, then there are many levels of fitness. Most people, unless they are athletes will go through highs and lows in their fitness graph. Some films don’t ask of you to be extraordinarily fit, so there I can look normal.''

While in EK THA TIGER, she was seen performing some stunts, her level of fitness in DHOOM 3 was at an altogether different level, as she played the role of a gymnast.

Asserts Katrina, ''When it comes to a film like DHOOM 3, it was about trying to show a gymnast. Aditya Chopra was very clear about what he wanted. A gymnast can only look one particular way. There cannot be a variety of ways or multiple opinions on how a gymnast will look. I was supposed to be strong and have muscle definition. That was my definite target for that film. In EK THA TIGER, there was no such requirement per say. I was playing an agent in the film. I might have done stunts like jumping on a moving bus but those are action calls. If one notices specifics, in EK THA TIGER my fitness was nowhere near to what it was in DHOOM 3. DHOOM 3 level of fitness was far more than EK THA TIGER and that is something very hard to maintain. Even now I am nowhere near my DHOOM 3 fitness level.''

However, Katrina is quite clear when it comes to preparing for a role which demands extreme levels of fitness, something which Priyanka Chopra had to develop for her biopic MARY KOM.

''If I bag a film that needs me to look very athletic then I will make sure that I took out that much time and did that whole process of training. Actually BANG BANG is not a film that requires it at all. My character in this film lives in Shimla, works in a bank. It did not require me to be in that frame at all. I am wearing usual clothes and it wasn’t physically taxing at all,'' concludes Katrina.

Directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Fox Star India, BANG BANG also stars Hrithik Roshan and is slated to release on October 2, 2014.
