Stories about the chemistry between Katrina and Shahrukh during the London schedule of the untitled Yash Raj movie have reached our ears. But Kat plays it down in a bid to avoid controversy
Everyone was quite surprised when Katrina Kaif decided to work with Shahrukh Khan in Yash Chopra’s directorial film, considering her closeness to a certain Salman Khan. Kat chose not to play it up, though. She made some very safe statements when asked about the film with SRK.
Now news from the sets of the film is that the two shared quite an interesting chemistry onscreen and got along even when the camera and lights went off. We hear that SRK went out of his way to make Katrina feel comfortable. All this info could well be a PR exercise, and Kat could have played along. But the actor has chosen not to go gaga over how well they got along, or how they share great chemistry.
It is not surprising that Kat is not going all over town talking about her friendship with the King Khan. Katrina is still quite close to Salman and does not want to say anything that would upset apna Sallubhai, we bet. The actor does not want to create unnecessary controversy either!
During the shoot in London, SRK reportedly gave his costar some expensive jackets so that she could keep herself warm, and a gym bag that she was looking for. He also attached a note saying, “Have a great workout”. When Katrina was pinned down at a recent event and asked if SRK was giving her expensive gifts to win over her loyalties, she would not comment. “No….nothing like that,” is all the Mere Brother Ki Dulhan actor had to say. There has also been news about Shahrukh recommending Katrina for Farah Khan’s Happy New Year and the lady had a quick and short answer to that: “No!”
Katrina did manage to duck questions on SRK this time around, but as the film’s release draws closer she will have to answer loads more questions about her costar. We know that the babe is quite professional and smart and will find some interesting strategies to deal with all the attention. Whatever she does, it will make news, we know, and you will find out too!
