Till yesterday, she was a Barbie girl, in her Barbie world. And yes, life in plastic is fantastic. But now, Katrina Kaif is all set for a rather interesting makeover. She will play a cameo as Radha in a film on the life of Lord Krishna.
 
Though Kat did dress up like a mythological figure in the song Main bararish kar doon paise ki in the film De Dana Dan, playing Radha will be an entirely new experience for the actress.
 
The film called Main Krishna Hoon will be on the life of Lord Krishna, starting from his childhood Leelas (pranks) up to adulthood. The film is being directed by Rajiv S Ruia of My Friend Ganesha fame.
 
Not revealing much about the plot, Katrina says, “Let it be a secret. But yes, I am doing this film on the life of Lord Krishna because my hairstylist Promila Hunter is producing the film. When she asked me if I would make an appearance I didn't even ask her what my role was. Only later did I get to know that it is a film on the life of Lord Krishna.”
 
Though she makes a guest appearance, Katrina who is currently in Patiala shooting for a Yash Raj film, is busy preparing for it. She is using all her free time to read up on the life of Lord Krishna.
 
Says the actress, “It always helps to know about areas of culture that you haven't visited. A role could just be an excuse to brush up your knowledge of life outside the entertainment industry.”
