Ever wondered what kind of bond Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan share? How does this once-upon-a-time couple manage to continue working together, and heap praise on one another while they are at it?
Well, at a recent event in Singapore, Katrina Kaif revealed that.
When probed about her Bharat co-star, Salman Khan, Katrina said, “Salman has really had my back, and has been there for me as a friend and support over the years, unfailingly and intuitively… He always seems to be able to sense it… He’s that person who is completely reliable. I trust him implicitly, and I think we have that connection.”
Speaking about a particularly rough time in her life, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that she’s referring to her rather public and seemingly bitter break-up with Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina is reminded of how Salman and she would suddenly cross paths, and things would instantly start falling into place.
Apart from Salman, Katrina admitted that his two sisters, Arpita and Alvira, are like her own “eighth and ninth sisters” and that she shares an equally strong bond with them.
Salman and Katrina were last seen together in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, which also starred Disha Patani. Katrina’s role was initially offered to Priyanka Chopra, who later backed out of the project since it clashed with her wedding with Nick Jonas. Bhaijaan, however, has always maintained that Katrina was his first choice from the beginning. We guess it all turned out well, then.
Katrina and Ranbir reportedly got together during the filming of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani in 2009. They parted ways about seven years later, in 2016, during the last leg of the filming of Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos.
While Katrina and Ranbir make it a point to never cross paths at award functions, celebrity weddings, or parties, Salman and Katrina’s relationship seems to have blossomed into something that has mutual respect and admiration, if not more. And as for Katrina’s relationship with Ranbir Kapoor’s current girlfriend Alia Bhatt, well, they are BFFs.
