Owning to such staggering success, she became one of the most bankable stars and one of the highest paid actors in the industry. As much as people enjoy watching Kaif on the celluloid for her aura, she has survived in the industry by surprising her critics with spurts of engaging performances. Not only Namastey London, which is still one of her best, we also saw the unseen side of Kaif in Aanand L. Rai's Zero, where she played a Bollywood star Babita Kumari. She was an emotionally broken soul and an alcoholic. The actress channelled the inner demons of her character as if they were her own. This was the first time a lot of people sat up to Kaif the actor and not the star.
