Katrina Kaif is one of the first few names that come to mind when you think about the most popular Bollywood actresses. She is a British model but is mostly known for her role in the Indian movie industry. One great attribute amongst the Indian film industry is their ravishing beauty and Kaif is not lacking at all in this area. She is one of their most talented, busiest and highest paid females in the industry. Katrina is the first Indian celebrity to have a Barbie doll recreated in her own image and is also a high brand endorser.
Date of Birth: July 16, 1984
Zodiac Sign: Cancer
Very little is known about the other Turquotte-Kaif siblings or their parents, Katrina has made a name for herself and accumulated so much wealth and fame that the rest of her family seems to be in her shadows. Not today anyways as we would be divulging more about the other Kaifs. One of the first is that not all the Kaifs are into the movie making industry. Read on for juicy details.
Who are Katrina Kaif’s parents?
Mohammed Kaif (father)
Mohammed is a half Pakistani and Kashmiri Indian businessman based in Britain. He was divorced from Suzanne while Katrina was a child and moved to the US afterwards. He did not stay for so long in America as he finally acquired British citizenship and settled there. Mohammed is a Muslim but his religion had no effect on his kids because he hardly saw them anymore. After the divorce from Turquotte, Islam was out of the picture neither did he have a say on their upbringing.
Suzanne Turquotte (mother)
She is an English Christian who graduated as a Lawyer from the prestigious Harvard but is also a passionate charity worker. After separating from her one time husband Mohammed, she devoted most of her time to social causes. For this reason, she was always travelling the world together with her children for varying lengths of time. Due to their frequent family relocation, the Hong Kong born actress Katrina was home schooled by her mother and several other tutors.
Suzanne lived in London for three years with her family then moved finally to Chennai, the state capital of Tamil Nadu in India. It was while in London Katrina changed her surname to Kaif because she felt it would be easier to pronounce but also because at the time, the cricketer Mohammed Kaif was on top of his game. Katrina and her mum share a very close mother-daughter relationship. The Bollywood icon is also actively involved in her mother’s Relief Projects. Suzanne indeed managed to be both father and mother to her kids as all the Turquotte’s kids ended up excellent.
