Katrina_KaifBe it her flawless skin or well worked-out body, Katrina Kaif has always been known for her beauty and svelte figure. But the actress feels 'there is more to beauty than just the physical appearance'.

'I feel it is important not to get overly obsessed and overly carried away with just the physical aspect. There is more to beauty than just the physical appearance. You are also a complete person and a woman should have an identity beyond just the way she looks,' Katrina told IANS in a telephonic interview from Mumbai.

Media appearances and film shoots are regular in the actress' life, which require her to look perfect at all times. This can be tough, said Katrina. 'It is tough in a way. You are a human being at the end of the day and everyone has his or her good days and bad days,' she said.
