Themorningbellbd.com entertainment desk, Mar 12: The grapevine is abuzz that Katrina Kaif, fresh after her alleged break-up with Ranbir Kapoor, is keen to work with ex-beau Salman Khan once again.
Apparently, she’s been regularly calling up Salman to express her keenness. After the lukewarm fate of Fitoor, the actress needs a blockbuster to validate her credentials.
Except for a much-delayed Jagga Jasoos and Baar Baar Dekho, Kat doesn’t have much to look forward to. And what better platform than a film with Salman, who has the reputation of bringing in the crores and the crowds! Good luck to the lady.
Even on Karan Johar’s famous Koffee couch, Salman grabbed eyeballs for his witty comments on Katrina Kaif and her alleged beau Ranbir Kapoor.
During the famous rapidfire round, Karan Johar asked Salman, “What would you do if you woke up as Ranbir Kapoor.” And pat came the reply, that he would wonder, “Salman lucky hai ya main.” When Karan asked what if Salman woke up as Katrina Kaif, Salman said, he would wonder, “Where’s Ranbir?”
Salman Khan has in the past, took digs at Katrina on several occassions. However, the actress who knows bhai’s nature, takes it with a pinch of salt.
It is reported that when asked as to which female actor would Sonam like to date, she said it would be Katrina Kaif because she had great legs. Salman was tongue-tied after this and blushed crimson before admitting that she indeed had great legs.
While this confession was rather sweet, there were times when Salman was not as saccharine for Katrina. Here’s an account of the times when he took a dig at Katrina Kaif.
Katrina Kaif and Salman’s sister Alvira have always shared a great bond. From shopping to dining, these girls are often captured enjoying some quality time together.
At Arpita Khan’s wedding too Katrina Kaif was present and was seen enjoying herself. When ‘Chikini Chameli’ was played at Arpita’s wedding, Salman took to the mic and asked Katrina to come on the stage.
He said, “Katrina Kaif, Katrina Kaif tumhara gaana baj raha hai. Please come on stage.” When Katrina hid behind Karan Johar and refused to budge, Salman went a step ahead and said, “Ok fine, not Katrina Kaif. Katrina Kapoor, please come on stage!
It seemed Salman Khan wanted to tease his ex-flame a bit more as he did not stop at just addressing her as ‘Katrina Kapoor’. As an embarrassed Katrina decided to walk amidst the crowd towards the stage, Salman further continued his joke.
He said, “Mai kya karoon… I gave you a chance to become Katrina Khan, but you chose to be Katrina Kapoor!” Everyone present at the event burst out laughing. Looks like, Salman has still not been able to forget about his good old days with Katrina Kaif.
The ‘Dabangg’ Khan lost no opportunity to pull his ex-girlfriend’s leg who was a guest at his sister’s wedding.
Referring to her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, Salman called her ‘Katrina Kapoor’. Everyone present at the event burst out laughing. Looks like, Salman has still not been able to forget about his good old days with Katrina Kaif.
Salman Khan had allegedly recently broken up with Katrina when the Bigg Boss team decided to invite her on Bigg Boss.
Katrina made a sparkling entry in a red-coloured gown and danced to her number, ‘Sheila ki jawani.’
After speaking to her about her movie Tees Maar Khan, Salman said, “Aapne abhi Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, hum sab ke saath kaam kar liya. Ab aapne pakda hai Ranbir Kapoor… isse bhi neeche jayengi aap? Isse bhi young chahiye.”
This left Katrina flustered and she quickly wrapped up the shoot and left.
The fact that Katrina Kaif is not well versed in Hindi is not hidden from anyone. During the last season of Bigg Boss, contestant Elli Avram and her weak command over the national language, reminded him of Katrina Kaif. During an episode, Salman asked her to deliver dialogue from her movie.
Elli said with a touch of her accent, “Main tumhare liye kuch bhi karne ko tayyar hoon.” Salman being the witty man that he is, immediately said, “Tumhara ye dialogue sunn kar mujhe 5 saal pehle ki Katrina yaad aagayi.”
