She will be at the match in her role as a brand ambassador for the club’s main sponsor Etihad.
Katrina began her career as a model at the age of 14. She has since gone on to become one of the biggest stars in Indian cinema, and has appeared in 24 films since her acting debut in 2006.
Now one of India’s most celebrated actresses, Katrina is the most Googled celebrity in India, the Angelina Jolie of Indian cinema. She became the brand ambassador for Etihad Airways last year.
The star is currently in the UK launching new Etihad initiative ‘Next Stop Bollywood’ which offers fans the chance to meet Katrina by uploading their dance videos online http://apps.facebook.com/nextstopbollywood! The campaign coincides with Etihad now flying to eight Indian destinations, Mumbai, Delhi and Cochin from Manchester via their hub in Abu Dhabi.
If you are heading down to the game on Sunday, please give Katrina a warm City welcome. A video of her visit will be on site early next week.
