Katrina Kaif's sister Isabelle who makes her acting debut in Jean-Francois Pouliot's "Dr. Cabbie", a film about an Indian doctor moonlighting as a taxi driver in the US, is said to have given up plans of pursuing a Bollywood career.


"While Katrina has no interest in a film career outside Bollywood, her sister Isabelle who was supposed to join Katrina in Bollywood has decided against it," said a source close to the family.

"It was felt by Katrina that the two sisters with similar personalities in the same entertainment industry can never work for the younger sister. Katrina doesn't want Isabelle to end up being the poor man's Katrina. The two sisters will pursue their acting careers in mutually exclusive domains," the source added.

Hence, the family has collectively decided that Isabelle would pursue an international career vis-a-vis a career in Bollywood.

"Isabelle took on 'Dr. Cabbie' as a starter because it was not really an Indian film but a Canadian project. Although the title role is played by Vinay Virmani and Isabelle is not cast opposite him, she loved the script and wanted to be part of it.

"Also her co-star is Kunal Nayyar, who is a major diaspora actor abroad."

However, the source adds that Isabelle had to audition for her part in "Dr. Cabbie" like any newcomer.

Isabelle's co-star Vinay Virmani from "Dr. Cabbie" is all praise for her. "Isabelle is very good in the film. She has all the star qualities of Katrina, plus the advantage of being in no hurry to become a star," he said.
