SRK comes to Katrina Kaif’s rescue when questioned about her Hindi

It was not a comfortable moment for Katrina Kaif, when a journalist doubted her command over Hindi language at a promotional event here on Sunday. But co-star Shah Rukh Khan came to her rescue. They were here to promote their forthcoming film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ that is releasing on Diwali. When one of the photo journalists asked Katrina about her character in the movie, she started answering in English, but was stopped midway by the journo who forced her to speak in Hindi saying: “You are from Bollywood, not Hollywood”. Shah Rukh immediately intervened and said: “She speaks Hindi also. There is no questioning on the language that she speaks. I request you not to do that…don’t get confused with what language the actor speaks in. Whatever they are comfortable in, they have right to do so.” When someone asked who does dubbing for Katrina, SRK chose to reply, saying, “She dubs herself.” As soon as SRK finished, Katrina informed about her role in the film. Speaking in English, she said: “My character is that of a typical Yash Chopra heroine. She is very idealistic about life. In the film, I am a businesswoman running my own company.” “Today is not my day. I just want to say that please see the movie and hope you like the film,” she added. Punctuality is not Shah Rukh’s forte and he was once again late for the event and perhaps the long waiting hours didn’t go down well with the waiting journos. ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ is Kaif’s first romantic film with Shah Rukh and the actress admits that she is concerned about the response of the audience to her pairing with the superstar. “This is my first movie with Shah Rukh and I am extremely happy. Since I am doing my first romantic film with him, I have kept my fingers crossed. Every romantic film of Shah Rukh was successful, so I had that pressure, but he helped me a lot,” the 28-year-old told reporters here Sunday. She also said it’s not just the pairing with Shah Rukh, but also Yash Chopra’s reputation of giving best romantic films to Bollywood that is adding to the pressure. “Not only with SRK, but also Yashji directing the film. I think both had a legacy behind them. It is really important for me that people should like both of us together,” she added. Shah Rukh-Yash Chopra combination gave hits like ‘Darr’, ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’ and ‘Veer-Zaara’. After his not-so-good experience with sci-fi superhero film ‘Ra.One’, Shah Rukh says that he is scared of the genre but has not given up on it yet. “Sci-fi film scares me. Sci-fi films are very expensive and need a lot of time. There was a market research recently and that reads that in India, the sci-film audience are very less than any other genres,” the 47-year-old told reporters. Directed by Anubhav Sinha, ‘Ra.One’ was co-produced by SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment and Winford Productions on a budget of over Rs 100 crore. The film released last year on Diwali, but failed to set off fireworks at the box office. Despite being scared of the genre, SRK says that he won’t stop making such films. “But I will certainly try to carry forward the work of making such films because till the time we don’t make such movies, then how will the audience like it. So I will definitely make it,” he said.
