  3. Switching from Nimzo-Indian to Catalan

Anybody know a line for white that doesn't draw "by force" (essentially any line that has <60% draw rate I suppose) after 4. Qc2 d5? I know Mamedyarov did this at Tata, but most of the lines I'm seeing in my own games seem to give black easy equality. I'm considering switching to the Catalan, and I started learning but the amount of theory is pretty crazy.
