Kaif added that it would be interesting to show the magazine covers to her grandchildren after 50 years.
"Every one knows I have grown up in London, and out there was a very famous kind of you know the '100 most attractive women list'. And it was a lot of fun for me; I would see the people I would really like. So when they launched this in India, I was like that's quite interesting.
"First time I got this title, I was very shocked. Second time I got, I was like it's a lot of fun. And now this year, I think it's been a wonderful shoot. It's always nice, because I would say that when you have grandchildren and you look back over those years, I mean 50 years from now, I could have those magazine covers on a wall and I can say one time I was considered sexy," said Katrina Kaif.
She also informed the media that she was never considered attractive. She feels indebted to her audience and fans for supporting her throughout her career.
