Hype of 'Ek Tha Tiger' is tremendous.. how it feels?
Right now I can say I am happy, excited.. we have tried our best.. The hype started when the first promo came out and the reaction was something extraordinary.. way beyond our expectations. August 15 will be the date which will decide whether we celebrate or..
Salman Khan movies are hero oriented. What's your role?
'Ek Tha Tiger' is primarily a love story.. I am not playing any glam doll, someone roped in for the eye candy feel. Kabir is not that kind of film maker who will take actress just for the glam quotient. I have a good strong role in the film..
How did Salman, you and Kabir came together?
In this trilogy Salman is the centre point. When I was offered 'New York' I was a bit nervous as the genre was new to me I have never done such an intense dramatic character before... it was not my field at that time.. when I discussed 'New York' with Salman, he immediately asked me to do the film.. Salman said that he has met Kabir coincidently and seen his work.. he gave me the confidence and showed full faith in Kabir..
Kabir has said that 'Ek Tha Tiger' will be Katrina's best till date..?
You never know what turns out to be the best.. for example when we finished 'ZNMD' with Hrithik, Farhan and Abhay we all including Zoya where a bit nervous whether the film which is urban and shot in foreign locals would attract the interest of all.. the movie got so much of appreciation that we were just overwhelmed.. so you never know.. We try to give our best..
You have worked with Salman before and after he became the box office phenomenon.. what changes have you noticed?
Salman is the same.. there is no change in him. circumstances around him have changed, the people and the industries perception around him have changed but he is the same.
In one of the promo of the film you asked Salman to get married.. what's your opinion as a friend/co - star?
Well the line you should get married is not proper according to me.. I mean if a person feels it's the right time and he/she has found the suitable person then they would get married.. its not like that someone says now you are so and so.. so you should be getting married.
You and Kareena have worked with all the mighty 3 Khans. How they deal with the rivalry?
I have still to work with Aamir.. but till date I have not noticed any such feelings in them. They all are gentlemen and I don't think they nurture such rivalry between amongst themselves. Media creates all such rivalry.
Yash Raj has provided you your career dream space?
Yes Yash Raj has given me the most chill out phase.. New York was my most dramatic intense role, Ek Tha Tiger is the most awaited at box office, am doing a romantic film with SRK as my co - star and Yash Ji as the director who have helmed B-town most amazing romances.. am also doing b-town most successful series 'Dhoom 3' with Aamir..
Where you see yourself now?
I was an outsider. I had problems with Hindi but I have tried hard..today I have a confidence in me when I go out on sets.. Initially I had to cope with criticism and all.. I was aware of Akshay Kumar, Shahrukh Khan but not met or known them. ..now I see them, hear about them, have worked with them.. so there's some level of intimacy. Was quiet nervous initially while working with SRK and Yash Ji.. but later we started understanding each other.. now Yash Ji and me crack jokes and we understand each other's humour and space.
