Katrina Kaif’s love life is, of course, the perennial hot topic, what with constant rumours now on whether she’s on-off with Salman Khan or Ranbir Kapoor.

But when asked about her marriage, she tells GQ magazine, “Do I see myself married in two years? I don’t really know. I think by the time I’m around 33, I should be having kids.”Kaif adds, “But you can’t plan it. I do want to get married, but do I want to have a child grow up without a father? No. I think you need more security.”

Currently busy shooting for Yash Raj’s Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, she tells the men’s mag, “Lack of sleep is dangerous. When I feel tired, I want to put on hats and scarves and build a wall around myself.” According to Kaif, working in films is a wonderful business, but can be very tricky too.

“You’re being watched and judged by a lot of people. You live through the newspapers.” Overt displays of female sexuality, for example, are out. “I’m not comfortable beyond a certain line of sensuality. I think it can be offensive to certain sectors of your audience. It’s important that it comes across as you.”

Kaif’s reluctance to open up extends to her wildly nomadic childhood. Born in Hong Kong, the magazine informs, she left with her British mother Suzanne Turquotte, a veteran NGO activist, when she was two or three, spending time in France and Japan and then Hawaii by the age of 11, before arriving in London at 13. “I have a lot of feelings of being lost and shy and isolated. I felt alien,” she says. “It makes you feel unsettled in your mind. You crave somewhere to settle (down).”

To sound easier on the Indian ear, Katrina took the name of her Kashmiri-British father, Mohammed Kaif, with her Bollywood debut at age 18.
