Katrina Kaif: 'Shah Rukh Khan is slightly intimidating'Movie Talkies – Thu 11 Oct, 2012 12:00 AM IST
At a recently held event, Kaif said, "Shah Rukh is very wonderful and friendly but slightly intimidating, I think. In the beginning, when Shah Rukh used to be standing in front of me, I used to forget that I'm supposed to be acting. You are like, Shah Rukh is there standing… he is acting and Yash ji used to tell me Katrina now is the time that you act. So it took some time for me to realize that I don't need to be so scared and nervous. It was an amazing experience and Yash ji is an amazing person, so understanding… just a very very special man."
Katrina is all praise for her co-star SRK and said that he is a thorough gentleman. "The first thing that impressed me about Shah Rukh was that he cares about his co-star's shots as much as he cares for his. I think it comes from his love of making films. He is also very attentive, he cares for his team. His behaviour makes you feel very cared for and it's nice to see gentlemen like him, in today's day and age," she stated
Directed by Yash Chopra, JTHJ stars Shah Rukh, Katrina and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles and is slated to hit the theaters this Diwali.
