In one of the episodes of the reality show, when actor Sunny Deol came to promote his movie, its host and Hindi film superstar Salman praised Elli saying, "Paanch saal pehle ki Katrina Kaif lagti hai (Looks like how Katrina used to look five years ago)".

Talking about the comparison, Elli told IANS: "Well, it's like a huge compliment because I really look up to Katrina. I felt it was very nice and sweet thing, but I cannot even compare myself with Katrina."

"She is such a huge star and I am just a newcomer," she added. Meanwhile, Katrina has no clue about who Elli is.

Last seen in 2012 movie "Jab Tak Hai Jaan", Katrina will soon be seen opposite Aamir Khan in the forthcoming action thriller "Dhoom 3". It hits theatres Dec 20.

This is not the first time that Aamir Khan has changed his body or looks for his role in a film. The actor who had beefed up look in Ghajini will again be seen in a different avatar in Dhoom 3.
