Artist Rouble Nagi Talks About Painting Katrina Kaif's Yuvvraaj Look

Artist and muralist Rouble Nagi talks about the second actress on her wishlist

"Katrina has transcended to a different level in Yuvvraaj. She is truly an artist's vision," beams well-known muralist-artist Rouble Nagi. The 28-year-old, whose clientele boasts of several Bollywood A-listers, social-ites, leading MNCs and hotels, has created a mural panel of Kat. The art work has found many admirers with the most ardent one being Salman Khan. In a quick chat with HiTLIST, Rouble speaks about her works, Salman and her muse, Kat.




The mural

Katrina seems to be an inspiration...

She is — especially her resplendent look in Yuvvraaj. Her character has such an aura to it. The mural takes a cue from the shot where Katrina is playing a cello with her eyes closed.

Did the panel need a lot of preparation?

I had to work doubly hard to do justice to her beauty. I just couldn't have gone wrong. The panel is a 3-D mixed media creation and is made of fibre, cold ceramic, fresco and stone.

Did you meet Kat before creating her image?
I have met her several times. She is an extremely warm person and is beautiful from the inside.

Did your friend Salman Khan coax you into creating the mural?
Salman is family. Our association goes beyond professional commitments. But making the murals was entirely my choice. In fact, the idea began on an informal note. Salman, Subhashji (Ghai) who is also a very dear friend, and I were discussing Yuvvraaj over a meal. I saw some photos from the film and it was then that we decided to go for the creations.

Salman, we hear, loves the murals.
(Smiles) Yes, he does. In fact, everyone has been complimenting the work. It is quite humbling.

Will the murals be up for auction?
Well, we are planning to do so. The proceeds will be donated to the Salman Khan Foundation. It is an honest cause and I don't see any better medium to make use of the auction money.

How do you rate Salman as an artist?
Salman's concepts are brilliant. His sense of detailing is amazing. He is very passionate and practises a lot. And his hard work shows.

Any advice for him?
I am senior to him when it comes to art but even with his experience, Salman is doing quality work. He should continue practising.

Does being Salman Khan's friend come easy?
If you're genuine, then being Salman's friend is the easiest job. The man will do anything for you only if you are true to him.

After Kat, who is your choice of muse?
I would love to make a portrait of Kareena (Kapoor). In fact, I can make both of Kareena and Katrina (laughs).
