Actor Katrina Kaif is distraught at having become fodder for gossip mills time and again. “Can’t I expect a little respect?” asks the 27-year-old actor, as she clears the air about rumours that she recently got into a catfight with actor Anushka Sharma.
According to reports, Katrina Kaif and Anushka had a fallout because her makeup artist had committed to work with Anushka for a 15-day shoot in London, but Katrina needed him for a few scenes in the movie Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, and did not let the artist leave. Eventually the movie’s producer Aditya Chopra had to intervene and sort things out.
Katrina Kaif denies any such incident taking place completely and says, “That was something really disheartening. I am not the kind of person who ever stands up and says, ‘Look what I have done, look at me’, or asked for any kind of respect or recognition or walked around with any kind of ego.”
“When I see these kind of stories, that’s the only time I feel that I am not asking for recognition, but a little bit of respect after all these years I have worked in the industry. Please don’t pull me down to this level,” she says.
Katrina Kaif has recently signed a movie opposite Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma for Yash Raj Productions. Says Katrina about her fellow actor Anushka, “Anushka is a lovely girl, starting off her career now”.
