Katrina Kaif, who will next be seen sharing the screen space with Salman Khan in her upcoming film Tiger Zinda Hai opens up about how the Sultan actor supports her during the initial stage of her acting career. During a recent interview, Katrina talked about how he has been a constant mentor in her life.
‘‘We all know that Salman has the kind of heart that loves to help people. But for me, the greatest strength that he was to me was that he didn’t try to make things different for me, he encouraged me every moment to stand up, find my own feet and work hard” said, Katrina.
Sharing one of her incidents, Katrina also revealed that how Salman acts as her pillar of strength and consoled her during the beginning of her career.
“He always had a lot of belief in me. I was to be a part of the movie ‘ Saaya’. Anurag Basu was the director, John Abraham was the hero and I was cast in the film. I was called one night for a shot. It was a silent shot, that too I was playing a ghost. It was a passing shot. After shooting for two days, I was told I am chucked out. When I left the room, I started crying, I was bawling my eyes out,” said Katrina.
Adding, “Sometime in the day, I met Salman and I’m weeping, and he’s just laughing. I started to think he’s so mean. I’m thinking my career is over and I’ve been chucked out from my first film and it’s the end of my life and he’s laughing? He finally gave in and calmed me down saying, you don’t understand, this doesn’t mean anything. I know where you’re going to go from here, these things happen, I don’t have an answer but these things happen, you’ll see. Just keep your focus and work hard.’’
Earlier, Katrina was rumoured to be dating Salman Khan. As of now, Katrina is gearing up for the release of her next Jagga Jasoos opposite Ranbir Kapoor. The film is slated to release on July 14.
