Salman Khan on Bigg Boss 9: I ‘m in awe of Katrina Kaif
Celebrity Salman Khan welcomed Katrina Kaif on stage during the ending of his show Bigg Boss 9 and heaped praise on the performer by calling her “one of the most powerful girls” he has ever understood. 32, Katrina, was accompanied by celebrity Aditya Roy Kapur on the reality TV show to advertise their approaching romance Fitoor.
This was the second time the performer appeared on Salman’s show after her 2010 visit for the promotion of her comedy Tees Maar Khan. Though they were sharing the stage after a long time, the ex-couple’s comfort level was clear. Be it Katrina’s leg pulling by Salman or her demure retorts, there was no awkwardness between them and they looked at ease with each other.
You are one of the strongest women I’ve ever known. You were only 16-year old when you came in the business and reached so far. It’s your hard work, sheer hard work. If God asks me to select between ability and hard work, I’ll pick the latter.”
Katrina quipped, “I also have ability, perhaps a little,” to which the 50-year-old star responded, “When one keeps working hard, the gift keeps rising. The whole state is in awe of you, including me! So, obviously you’re gifted.”
The performer blushing was left by Salman’s compliment. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan star also commended Katrina’s dancing skills, referring to the slow, fervent tune Pashmina from Fitoor, where she’s seen performing with Aditya. Both actors gave a sneak peek of their dancing on the stage of Bigg Boss.
Fitoor sticking to its motif and is touted as an intense love story, Salman requested Katrina and Adtiya to enact an intimate scene from the film. So impressed was Salman with the scene that he expressed his desire to do the same sequence with Katrina, which received a thunderous response from the audience.
