Valentine’s Day is here and we are hooked to checking what our favourite celebrity couples are planning special on this day. Where newly wedded Priyanka Chopra has flown to spend the day with her husband Nick Jonas, Deepika Padukone has revealed that she is planning to watch her husband, Ranveer Singh’s much-awaited movie, Gully Boy this Valentine’s, another on-off couple Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif have been trending on the social media because of their special V-Day plans.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif have been the talk of the town ever since the two started dating. For about 4 years, Katrina and Salman dated and as everyone is aware, after that they parted ways. Salman and Katrina never made their relationship official but it was quite apparent and became a much pulicised affair. After their breakup, Katrina Kaif went on to date the Bollywood heartthrob, Ranbir Kapoor which again ended up being a broken relationship, in spite of rumors of their relationship culminating into marriage. Post that, the closeness between the ex lovers Katrina and Salman seem to have grown as they both never lost respect and mutual admiration for each other.
Salman and Katrina have been a part of many movies together, in fact, apparently, Katrina was introduced by Salman in 2005 in Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, a remake of a Hollywood movie, Just Go With it. After that, they did movies like Yuvraaj, Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai among many others, most of which were loved by the fans, majorly because of their fiery on screen chemistry. Now, they will be seen opposite each other again this Eid in their upcoming action drama Bharat.
The movie is set up in 1947, the year India got independence and will show characters over a span of 70 years. Recently, it has been reported that the lead stars will be spending the V-Day together and will be shooting a day long sequence with the other cast of the movie, Jackie Shroff, Tabu and Sunil Grover. A source revealed,
“A day long shoot on February 14, Valentine’s Day, will see Salman and Katrina reuniting with Jackie (Shroff), Tabu and Sunil (Grover) for a dramatic sequence.”
The source further added that they recently also filmed a beautiful wedding song for the movie. He said,
“Salman and Katrina recently shot an elaborate wedding song which was preceded by another big song featuring Salman and Disha.”
This time, Salman’s all out movie is being planned to release in not just Hindi but in other regional languages as well including Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam for his South Indian fans. Regarding this, the source informed the tabloid,
“They are scouting for dubbing artistes in different languages to lend their voices to various characters.”
Along with Salman, the film also stars Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff, Tabu, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover but the teaser which released about 3 weeks ago did not reveal or show any of the other characters, apart from glimpses of Sunil Grover and Katrina Kaif in hindsight which was a bit of a disappointment, especially for Katrina fans. When asked about the same, an informant was quoted as saying,
“Katrina plays a pivotal role in the movie. And the film’s release is almost 6 months away. Hence the makers decided to keep her look and role guarded. It was a team decision to only establish Salman Khan’s character in the teaser. Katrina’s look and character details would be revealed only in the trailer, which will come out nearer to the film’s release date.”
Curious about Katrina’s role in the movie, when asked about it, the informant told the entertainment website,
“Katrina Kaif plays an absolute desi. She has an Indian look. In fact, she also did an extensive workshop with director Ali Abbas Zafar as a part of her prep. And introducing her role in the teaser might have given out the story slightly. Hence it was a deliberate move to keep her character away from the teaser.”
A few days ago, when Katrina and Ali Abbas Zafar appeared on a talk show to promote their film, a video call to Aamir Khan revealed the bet they had which signifies that not just all of us fans, but Aamir Khan is also trying his best to reunite the couple. Khan recalling the incident said,
“Katrina was very keen to beat me in a game of chess when I said fine, let’s play a game, she said ‘Please let me practise first.’ So, she practised for a few months and then said, ‘Ok, now I am ready’,” said Aamir Khan and then shared the details of the condition he had set for her: “She said if I win, I want you to do another film with me.
She said, ‘What do you want if you win?’ I said, ‘If I win then you will go and stand below Galaxy Apartments, below Salman’s house and you’ll sing Dil cheez kya hai, aap meri jaan lijiye…. That was actually the bet. And Katrina was so afraid to lose the bet to me that she finally never played the game!”
So, basically, she chickened out, for she was too afraid to lose the game. But we don’t know whether Aamir was trying to get Salman and Katrina back in his own little way or was it some kind of an inside joke which the three of them share. We like the first option better though and hope, Aamir just is trying to play the cupid between the two.
Anyway, their Valentine’s Day plans are sorted as they will be working TOGETHER which is big enough a reason for their fans to gush on.
The visuals of the movie look absolutely thrilling and the teaser has raised the bar of curiosity and expectations even more. Bharat is produced by Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Krishan Kumar, Bhushan Kumar, Nikhil Namit and Salman Khan. It is slated to open on Eid this year i.e. on the 5th of June.
