In an interview with me a short while back, Salman Khan expressed sadness that 'Ek Tha Tiger' is not releasing in Pakistan. He said that many of his Pakistani fans in Dubai, London and elsewhere have seen the film and loved it. He says that the Pakistani censor board must be having reasons and he respects that.
Katrina is excited with the response that her character has received. In a Salman Khan film, heroines are generally meant to indulge in song and dance routine and a few stray dialogues here and there but ETT has Katrina playing a pivotal role with serious action too. Kaif is happy with the appreciation for her action. Salman has been taking Action to another level with each passing film. The aeroplane scene and the stunt on the train in Dublin have been choreographed brilliantly in ETT. Salman and Katrina praised the action consultant Conrad and his team and also the manner in which director Kabir Khan conceptualised the action.
Salman spoke about the sense of humour in ETT and why he doesn't want his films to be preachy. He spoke about the working experience with Girish Karnad and Roshan Seth. Katrina said that the dog Rocket was the most pampered on the sets as he had a huge staff tagging along.
Salman is happy with the huge Box Office numbers but he says its the public acceptance that has been most satisfying. What does he have to say about the numbers around Sunday and Monday on Eid? Are there chances of Salman and Katrina working together in future?
I didn't ask any personal question as I found no sense in probing into someone's private life especially when certain sections have already gone crazy inventing and concocting stories.
