Katrina Kaif: 'Must be a step above Ek Tha Tiger'


By Hindustan Times

MUMBAI, Oct. 2 -- Alot was expected of the Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif pairing in Ek Tha Tiger, and the rumoured ex-couple did deliver. The film raked in big money and a super-hit status, but now, it's also made the lead pair cautious of signing films together.

"If we're a successful pair, why won't people want to cast us?" asks Katrina, admitting she's always getting plenty of offers to star opposite Salman. "But we won't work together unless something is a step above Ek Tha Tiger." In this interview, Katrina discusses her upcoming projects, fabled house hunt and a fashion magazine cover.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is nearing release. What can you tell us about the film? We're almost done with the film. There's only one song left to shoot. I can't talk much about my role, but the film is an intensely romantic love story. It's been hard work, but a lot of fun too. I don't get it when people ask me if it's a 'typical' Yash Chopra film. I've always thought he makes a range of films - love stories, social dramas, and lots more, so it's not just one genre.

Every day, we hear you looked for a new house or bought one somewhere. Have you? Not at all. I don't deny that I want to soon, but I haven't even started looking. I've been living at my current residence for a very long time now. The rumours are complete rubbish. The worst was one about me buying a place in Lokhandwala.
