“I am half Indian and so is Rahul Gandhi” says Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif. Defending the allegations on her passport, ethnicity and surname that she has been facing for a last few years, the tall-legged actress made these controversial statements.
“I am very proud of what I am and I just don’t understand the confusion – as if I’m trying to hide the fact that my mother’s British. Why would I?” ,she said, “Am I supposed to be ashamed that I am half Asian, half European? I mean, no! Rahul Gandhi is half Indian, half Italian. So?”
Katrina comes from mixed parentage. Her mother is a Britisher whereas her father is from India. The diva is facing remarks over her ethnicity ever since she joined the Indian film industry.
