Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif bond perfectly with each other in contrast with their personal life in the past. Kat has been in the industry for almost 15 years now and over time, she has established herself as one of the leading ladies in Bollywood.
On the work front, both of them have given many blockbuster films together as the lead couple and are now all again set to appear together in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. During an interview with Pinkvilla, Kat got candid about her equation with Salman that has evolved over the past few years.
“The best thing about me and Salman coming together to work is that there’s no sense of us taking it for granted. We don’t go to the sets thinking, ‘dekhte hai’. He knows that I’m going to come after putting 1000% of my time and effort behind finding the character, doing my prep. He has that confidence in me and I know when he comes, he’s going to come up with something unique. However, well, I know him or whatever our equation is, when we come on a set, we both come respecting that this is the producer and director’s place and not a playground.”
These both actors carry the same mindset, whenever it comes to their work.
“It’s not about fun and games but a professional territory. We come and we do our scenes and rehearsals. That’s how we work well together. There’s no sense of taking anything easy or for granted. Also, we both have the same mindset when it comes to work. There’s no discount from the audience. They aren’t ready to give you that leeway anymore. You have to bring your heart and soul to a film.”
She believes that there’s a certain responsibility on both of them. She said,
“Sometimes, the audiences are a lot more forgiving and gentle when you’re starting out. Now, there’s a certain responsibility on us to deliver something of a certain standard to our audience. We both feel that.”
On her professional experience with Ali Abbas Zafar, she added,
“He is one of those directors who bring out the best in me. When you ask me about the changes that people are noticing in me, the primary reason for that is the character that I’m playing. Ali writes interesting roles for me and I’m super fortunate to have characters like the ones in Zero and Bharat.”
