Mumbai, Apr 3: Actor Shahrukh Khan, who will be sharing screen with Katrina Kaif in their maiden romantic film by Yash Chopra says that his co-star is a stupendous actor and that he tried to adapt himself to her work approach.
After a gap of eight years, Yash Chopra has returned to direction with with this untitled film, which also stars Anushka Sharma. The shoot started in February in London.
“I got to shoot with Katrina Kaif for the first time, which was wonderful. I do a couple of films a year and I haven’t worked with her. I think she is a stupendous actor. Everyone says about her being hardworking and very talented. Its more important how we work together..how we work as a team,” Shahrukh told reporters here, at an event last evening.
The model-turned-actress has been in Bollywood since nine years and all those who have worked with her have always praised her.
“When I work with a lot of young actors, I learn a lot as they have a different way of doing scenes. I have worked now for 21 years, they have been working for 10 years. When Katrina is doing a scene, she has a different way of approaching it. And when she approaches it differently, as a co-actor I also try to think if she is doing it differently, there must be a reason so let me also try it and adapt myself to do it differently. So that give and take has been absolutely fantastic,” Shahrukh said.
Apparently, it was on Katrina’s birthday few years back that both Shahrukh and Salman had a fall out. And now Katrina is working with both Khans—Salman and SRK—under the Yash Raj Films banner.
SRK’s association with Yash Raj Films has been long and they have given many movies like ‘Darr’, (1993), ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ (1995), ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ (1997), ‘Mohabbatein’ (2000), ‘Veer Zaara’ (2004), ‘Chak De’ (2007) and ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ (2008).
“I read that shooting with Yash Chopra is a picnic but shooting is never a picnic. It was hardly like a picnic and it was very cold. Its hard work.. its a difficult film. It is nice to shoot with Yashji after 6-7 years. Its nostalgic, very tricky. Shooting is nice with him because we are one big family. We have worked with each other for 21 years. There are lots of moments and we have had great time making films,” Shahrukh said.
The film is slated for Diwali release.
“We have finished part of the film and hopefully in the next schedule after IPL we will complete the film,” Shahrukh said.
