Fan Asked Mohammad Kaif If He’s Related To Katrina & His Cryptic Reply Left Everyone Wondering

When we come across the surname ‘Kaif’, there are only two prominent figures with the title, that pops up in our mind. While one of them is former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif, the other one is Katrina, whose sparkling beauty makes her one of the most desired women in the Bollywood industry.

And do you know what’s funny? The fact that there is probably no one, who hasn’t tried to figure out a link between the two.

So when the 2002 NatWest hero, Mohammad Kaif, hosted the #Askkaif session on Twitter, as he has done many a time previously, he was almost bound to face a similar question.

Quite expectedly, a fan came up with the question everyone wanted an answer to. Is Mohammad Kaif related to Katrina Kaif? But wait. The question didn’t end here but had a googly attached to it. He went on to ask if the cricketer has a ‘chance’ with the actress in future!

Much like his cricketing days, Kaif played the tricky question pretty well. In his answer, he mentioned that he is not ‘yet’ related to the actress and is happily married. He further added that he had heard a story on how Katrina got her surname ‘Kaif’ which points out a connection to the Uttar Pradesh cricketer!

Now that’s an interesting revelation, isn’t it?

However, the Tweeple went gaga over the tiny ‘yes’ in his answer and tried to chalk out the hidden mystery behind it.

Well, there are some probable answers which have been doing the rounds for a while now.

So it turns out that the Bollywood actress, who has an English mother and a Kashmiri father, goes by the real name of Katrina Turquotte. Throwing light to the matter of interest, Ayesha Shroff,ย the producer of Katrina’s first film ‘Boom’, said that her surname was too tough to pronounce. They decided to give her the title of ‘Kazi’ initially which was later changed to ‘Kaif’ because Mohammad Kaif was ruling the world with the willow at that time!

Wow, I bet you were not aware of that. We hope there are no queries left!
