The 32-year-old 'Bang Bang' star said she would enjoy the opportunity of getting meatier roles, when others are busy trying their luck in the west.

"I have realised it recently that as everyone is going to Hollywood my competition is becoming really less. So, now is the time for me to sit here and by default get the roles which will become more available. I think now is the time to capitalise on the good characters," Katrina told media.

The actress, who will be seen in a romantic role in her upcoming film 'Fitoor', said she would stay back and take up 'risky' projects like the Kashmir-based love saga.

Katrina's last outing 'Phantom' did not perform as well as the makers expected it to, but according to her, one can't constantly chase box-office collection and ignore good roles.

'Fitoor' is an adaptation of Charles Dickens' celebrated novel 'Great Expectations,' and Katrina, who is playing Firdaus (Estella) in the film said working with Tabu was  a 'bonus' for her.

Tabu, is playing the role of Katrina's mother in the film, which was supposed to be played by Rekha initially.

Directed by Abhishek Kapoor and produced by UTV Motion Pictures, 'Fitoor' will hit the screens on February 12.
