Katrina Kaif will be seen in a romantic movie after a while now. And what's special is that she is romancing Aditya Roy Kapur (who has become every girl's dream) in FITOOR, which releases around Valentines Day! During media interactions, Katrina spoke about work, a movie with Salman Khan, Kabir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, working with Rekha and much more…
Here are some excerpts from the movie:
You're coming back in a romantic movie after doing action since a long time.
I think that'd be a nice change for people who come to see the film. JAB TAK HAI JAAN has been my last love story. In fact, this year I'm going to have 3 very different love stories. I'm happy about that.
So how would you differentiate between the 3?
I think the USP of FITOOR is that it's an extremely classic, romantic, passionate love story. JAGGA JASOOS is keeping Anurag Basu's inherent style - quirky and unusual. BAAR BAAR DEKHO is a very surprising love story and a new take. I cannot predict what people will feel, but I'm certain they'd say that it was a good attempt. When I read it, it felt that it's something we've not seen before.
What preparations did you have to do for FITOOR?
The normal workshops and readings. Abhishek was quite clear on how he wanted the character to be played.

Has your sensibility of choosing projects changed every year since you've evolved with each film?
You choose films according to the time, place and mood you're in at that point. I distinctively remember when I was deciding on taking up DHOOM: 3, I was driving in my car and just the excitement and thrill of visualizing being on the set with the circus people and team that was going to be there, visuals, songs, level of dance, that was the most exciting thing for me at the moment. When I got MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN, I was shooting for ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA and I remember discussing with probably Zoya and called up Ali. People might call it a childish film but for me at that moment it was exactly what I wanted to do. It was the most memorable experience. The whole character Ali wrote, was a side of me that only my close friends know. When Aditya Chopra saw the film, he said what are you guys doing? In the end, he was really happy with it.
Were you happy with the film choices you've made?
I'm very happy with all of them because they were the choices I wanted to do at that time. With most things in life, you can only react and do things you feel at that time. You can't predict the future and necessarily have the greatest foresight. The story of PHANTOM seemed so new to me and my friend.
Were you upset that PHANTOM didn't do well?
The opening weekend of PHANTOM started out so well. We were all so happy. I really think it's a good film - well made and interesting story. But then like sometimes it happens - we had a huge comedy film which was slightly more commercial and overtook everything. These things aren't in your control. You can't predict what'll happen.
