New Delhi: British born actress Katrina Kaif, whose personal life is always in media hype for linkups and sudden break ups, has learnt how to deal with press and be cool under pressure.

“I have learnt that media and celebrities go hand in hand and now I don't feel the need to clarify my stance and I am not bothered. Audiences have also become mature and they also understand what is right and what is wrong,” added the 26-year-old sexy siren.

This year, her first release will be in June with Zoya Akhtar's 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara', also starring Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar and Kalki Koechlin. After that she will be seen in 'Mere Brother Ki Dulhan'.

Katrina was introduced into the Hindi film industry with 'Boom' in 2003, but the first hit came only four years later with 'Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya', with Salman Khan. She gave lots of hits like 'Partner', 'Welcome' and 'Singh ss Kinng' with Akshay Kumar.

As her career skyrockets, expectations have also become higher and Katrina admits to some nervousness.

“If you lose that nervousness or anticipation that means you have reached a saturation point which is the worst thing for any actor. For me, it is important that I live up to the expectations of my fans and I don't let them down,” she mentioned.

So does Katrina fear failure?

“Fear is something that drives you to do good work and it is important for a person to maintain a positive attitude and keep on doing good work,”she said.

With films, endorsements, performances and media appearances crowding her to-do-list, the actress admits she sometimes finds it difficult to cope with the hectic work life but she knows how to rejuvenate herself in pressure.
