Ex-beaus Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif have started shooting for their upcoming film Ek Tha Tiger under Yash Raj Films in Dublin.

Salman resumed for shooting after recuperating from a neurological disorder surgery last month. Katrina Kaif is taking special care of him on the sets of the film.
She is very much concerned about his health. Salman too is no different. He too is affectionate towards Katrina.
When Katrina fell from a bicycle during a shooting sequence in the film, it was Salman who instantly rushed to help her.
In the film, Salman essays the role of a secret service agent while Katrina essays the role of a college going girl. Ek Tha Tiger will hit theatres coming June.

As per sources, the babelicious babe was required to ride a bicycle for a particular sequence in the film, and unfortunately, Kaif lost her balance and tripped off the cycle, thereby exposing her panty.
Nevertheless, her former beau and now ‘good friend’ Salman Khan, as usual, came to her rescue at the time of this unfortunate incident.
There’s been no disturbance during the shooting, says Katrina
While earlier tabloids had reported that the unit of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ has been troubled by a local union, recently Katrina, the heroine of the film, claimed the reports to be false by stating that there hasn’t been any kind of disturbance during the film’s shooting.
"This is the first time I am hearing of this. What trouble? Which workers’ strike? We’ve been shooting here uninterrupted since we arrived. There’s been absolutely no disturbance of any kind.
“In fact, the local people here are very supportive. They go out of their way to make us feel at home," the actress told reporters.
About ‘Ek Tha Tiger’
The Salman-Katrina starrer ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is being directed by Kabir Khan.
The movie produced by Yash Raj Films is slated to release by June 1, next year

Katrina started her journey with the prominent production house with ‘New York’. The film showed her in a very serious role that critics thought the glam doll would not be able to carry off.
But, she proved them wrong. Kat’s role in the movie, her acting skills were appreciated and applauded.
The Deccan Chronicle quoted an industry analyst, “When YRF offered Kat a serious film like ‘New York’, everyone thought she was going to fall flat on her face. But the movie cleverly played up Kat’s plus points. Now with the brownie points she’s earned for ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, YRF’s faith in her seems to be well- founded.”
Kat does not consider herself to be the chosen one
Now Kat has multiple YRF films coming her way. But Kat refuses to call herself the ‘blue eyed- girl’ of the YRF camp.
Katrina said, “See, we’re all trying to do our best. It’s good to shoot for a film when you have a great script.”

Katrina wins her ‘no-bikini’ clause!
Mumbai: Now, one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood, Katrina Kaif had kick-started her career in the industry as a “bikini-girl” in `Boom`.

The film proved to be a huge dud and so was Katrina’s bikini act. But since then Katrina has walked miles so much so that she has now started calling the shots!

Apparently, Kat has been signed for ‘Dhoom 3’ as the leading lady opposite Aamir Khan.

The earlier franchises of the film had the leading ladies sizzling in bikinis and Kat was required to do the same. But Aditya, the Yash Raj scion seems to have given in to Kat’s convictions just like he did for Ash in `Dhoom 2`.

A source informed a tabloid that Aditya had categorically told Katrina that she would be required to wear a bikini in the film. In the past too, YRF had got Esha Deol and Bipasha Basu to don the two-piece swimwear for `Dhoom` and `Dhoom 2` respectively.

“Whether they did it willingly or reluctantly, nobody knows. But Katrina was extremely reluctant,” said the source.

As reported by the tabloid, the source said, “Aditya is very fond of Katrina and they are very good friends. He had other options, including a few foreign actresses, but Katrina towered above all those options. Katrina managed to convince Aditya that it was not necessary for her to wear a bikini in the film.”

Talking about the entire bikini issue, another source said, “Aditya is not even disappointed. In fact, he is very happy that Katrina is on board. Bikini ka problem shayyad ek hi reason tha that he took so long to finalise the female lead in the film.”

Justifying Katrina’s no-bikini clause, a friend of the actress said, “Today, Katrina is a big star. She adds tremendous value to a project. She is justified in her reservations, if any, when she signs a film.”

Well done girl. That’s like a commanding woman!
Katrina Kaif

Katrina Kaif has lent her smooth silky voice to a children’s nursery rhyme album. Although she will only be heard reciting a line in the Rhyme school children’s nursery rhyme music album, Katrina’s voice makes this album super special.

A.R.Rahman has composed the music. In another bid to shed her sexy ’Sheila Ki Jawani’ image, Katrina will enthrall the kids with her one line rendition. According to the makers of the music album, Kat’s voiceover will be followed by children themselves reciting the various nursery rhymes.

Interestingly, Kat’s new- found fascination for her kiddie fans will also see her lending her voice to the upcoming 3D animation film Main Hoon Krishna. Though she just makes cameo appearances, it does take both the projects to another level when someone as popular as Katrina is associated with it.


Katrina Kaif, so far, has only worn a bikini in her debut film Boom.

The suspense is over. Katrina Kaif has finally agreed to star in Yash Raj Films’ Dhoom 3 opposite Aamir Khan.
The big question that this confirmation throws up is, will cool Kat go ahead with wearing a bikini in the film.
For those who came in late, Katrina was always the first choice for the role. However, a precondition for doing the role was that Katrina would have to wear a two-piece in a couple of scenes in the film.
The superstar actress, despite being eager to work in the film, was reluctant to sport a bikini. While confirming Katrina’s acceptance of the role, the makers of Dhoom 3 did not, however, mention whether she will wear a two- piece in the film.
Earlier, when Katrina was hesitating to do the role, the makers tried scouting for a fresh face.
"We were unable to find the perfect debutante to play the lead role after almost a year of searching. Briefly, we also tried roping in an international actress but were still unable to find someone who would stand out," Vijay Krishna Acharya, director of the film, said . "Both (YRF head honcho) Aditya Chopra and I really wanted to be sure that the actress we chose is perfect for the role. Katrina was an obvious choice for all of us. She is someone who we all know will bring tremendous enthusiasm and commitment to the film. This is also the first time Aamir and Katrina will unite on the screen. That certainly adds value to the project," Vijay said. Barring her debut film Boom , Katrina has refrained from wearing a bikini in her career so far.
In fact in her eight-year career, she has largely avoided excessive skin show. The actress, regarded as the most saleable female star by many, has been following the norm of avoiding bold scenes ever since she started dating Salman Khan.
Katrina was recently seen kissing Hrithik Roshan in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara , but that scene was filmed during the phase when she and Salman had briefly broken up.
The buzz on Dhoom 3 suggests Katrina would not only have to sport a bikini, she may also have to share a passionate smooch with Aamir. The Dhoom films have always had scenes that require the heroines to expose in beachwear and also do intimate scenes.
In the first film, Esha Deol got a hot makeover and was seen flaunting a toned body in a bikini. In Dhoom 2, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan sported two-piece beachwear and also shared a kissing scene with Hrithik Roshan.
Thursday’s decision to go with Katrina for Dhoom 3 was taken after a lot of discussion and several meetings between Aditya Chopra and Vijay Krishna Acharya.
Meanwhile it seems Katrina has become YRF’s new muse.
Her latest YRF production, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan , is already a big hit. The film has grossed Rs 50 crore in less than two weeks. She has two other YRF productions lined up - Ek Tha Tiger opposite Salman and Yash Chopra’s comeback directorial feature opposite Shah Rukh Khan.


Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.

Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif have been shooting in Dublin for Yashraj’s Ek Tha Tiger for nearly two weeks now and the latest gossip from the set is that the two ex-lovers are bonding again.
Salman resumed the shoot of Kabir Khan’s movie immediately post his surgery.
He was suffering from a nerve disorder and was operated in a New Jersey hospital last month.
After recuperating from his illness he began shooting with Katrina Kaif in Dublin.
It is said Katrina is taking good care of Salman on the sets. She often openly shows her concern for his health. On the other hand Salman too is not behind in showing his affection towards Katrina.
From Salman’s recent statement about Katrina, it was clear that he still has a soft corner for her. Once Katrina, who plays a college student in the movie, and Salman, who essays a secret service agent were shooting for a sequence where she had to ride a bicycle.
Katrina fell from the cycle. Seeing this Salman immediately rushed to her rescue before anyone else could.

while shooting one such scene that Katrina slipped and fell down,
taking the bike along with her. It’s hard to say if it was an accident or the fall was a part of the
shoot. But there was indeed a moment of panic among the onlookers as
Katrina slipped and fell down.

The shoot was held on the college campus and had Katrina walking along with a bicycle. Salman joins her and the two take a stroll down the campus.
In the movie, Salman Khan plays a special agent of Indian intelligence services. He is codenamed Tiger. He is sent on an important mission to track down a scientist who is suspected of selling a dangerous missile technology to the terrorists. Katrina Kaif plays a dance student who is also the caretaker of the aforementioned scientist. To get close to the scientist, the agent befriends Katrina and the two fall for each other.

Actors bonding on the sets are not a new phenomenon, but very few manage to maintain their friendship beyond their shooting schedule.
But despite all odds, actor Katrina Kaif and her co-star Ali Zafar have managed to forge and maintain their friendship well beyond their shoots. Apparently the two hit it off pretty well on the sets of their latest film together, and are now good friends even off the sets.
Katrina who is generally an easy going person on the sets, had earlier spoke about the difficulties in maintaining friendship in Bollywood.
The actor had said, “It becomes very difficult to have the same set of people around, as you are constantly on the move. Doing a film takes up so much of your time. When you do a film you get involved in it. For the next three months that unit becomes your family and then once the film wraps up, that world ends. Yes you do make friends, but sometimes that changes as well.”
While she still relies on actor Salman Khan and turns to him for advice, it seems like Kat has found a new BFF in Ali and the duo has managed to keep in touch even post their film.
A source close to Ali says, “Ali treats Kat like a younger sister. He looks after her and makes sure that she is well taken care of. His wife too is very fond of Katrina and looks forward to meeting her.”
Recently, Ali threw a party after the film’s success and invited the entire cast and crew. Katrina was obviously on the list but she had to leave for Dublin on the same day and wasn’t sure if she would be able to attend the party.
“Katrina was to fly to Dublin that same night. But, since Ali had made a special request, she came to the party for a while. Ali, who was very happy to have her around sang a song dedicating it to Kat, before she left. She in turn had a big smile on her face all through the party. They both have now become very close and are almost like family to each other,” the source further adds.

Imran Khan and Katrina Kaif walked the ramp for designers Karan Johar and Varun Bhal.

Topless models displaying shorts and swimwear, A-list celebrities, elaborate sets, an impressive front row and some foot tapping music - the duo of Karan Johar and Varun Bahl pulled out all stops and left no stone unturned at the grand finale of the Van Huesen India Men’s Week (VHIMW).
It doesn’t take much to figure out that any showcasing by Karan Johar, be it TV, film or fashion, necessitates a certain degree of Bollywood presence and support.
It comes as no surprise then that actors and showstoppers Katrina Kaif and Imran Khan stole the spotlight as they walked the runway, dressed stylishly in tailored black suits.
Though Katrina remained the centre of attention, looking glamorous in a sequined blazer, kudos to Imran Khan as well who not only managed to match her stage presence, but also held his own, looking dapper and youthful.
The duo will be seen together soon enough on the big screen in their next release Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, scheduled for release later this month.
With plenty of ’ male cleavage’ on display, bright colours and white linens, the whiff of the Mediterranean breeze was all but obvious in the pro-ducer-designer duo’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
This being their second fashion outing, Karan Johar and Varun Bahl took inspiration from the French Riviera, Côte d’Azur, and also Italian fashion as the dominating influence that underlined their prêt collection which was titled the ’ Mediterranean Dream.’ Cowl neck tees, light weight jackets, linen suits in summer yellow and orange were on display in this semiformal collection with a twist of resort chic.
Neutral shades of beige, ivory and grey teamed with denims, mulmul trousers, structured jackets and flowing cardigans created the perfect combination of the preppy and wearable clothing line.
No menswear collection can be hailed complete without a dose of black and charcoal and so, the duo showcased a good amount of the typically masculine shades in their collection.
Summer layering was highlighted with an interplay of the soft and rigid, the translucent and the solid. Printed silk boxers, luxe silk jerseys, net pullovers and even the oddball sequined silver blazer for men added a dash of glamour to the well received line-up.


(File photo) Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif
I knew no one in Bollywood when I started my career. I was an established model but was finding my foot in the film industry.
I was a fresher when I met Salman but he saw a potential and encouraged me in many ways. Salman Khan has supported me right from the beginning of my career and is one of my closest friends till date.
He has taught me the nuances of acting and he was the one who gave me an insight into this industry – how it works and the nitty gritties of it.
However, he has never interfered with my decisions, he has never instructed me about not doing a movie or to sign for a particular project.
It is totally false that he asked me not to work with certain actors. I have a chosen a career that requires me to be in the spotlight all the time.
People keep writing about my personal life and so-called on-and- off relationship with Salman, but it doesn’t bother me anymore as it’s a part and parcel of the entertainment industry. About my relationship status, I am single and Salman is a great friend.
Katrina Kaif, it seems, will finally be seen in the much hyped item number that Karan Johar had planned with the actress in mind for his upcoming biggie Agneepath. The item dance in question is being hyped as a highlight number in the Hrithik Roshan- starrer. In the song, Katrina will be seen shaking a leg with Sanjay Dutt who plays the arch villain Kancha Cheena in the film.

The news about Karan approaching Katrina for the item number started doing the rounds a few weeks ago. However, no sooner did the buzz gain ground, insiders in Katrina’s camp quashed all such reports.

Industry insiders suggest that Katrina’ s reluctance to do the item dance in Agneepath had to do with her close friend Salman Khan. Salman was reportedly not very pleased with Sanjay Dutt getting close to his arch rival Shah Rukh Khan lately. In fact, Sanjay’s recent proximity to SRK has surprised all.

In turn, Katrina, who owes a lot to Salman professionally, reportedly chose to stay away from Agneepath. "Salman, who has always been very close to Sanjay, was miffed when the latter agreed to do a villain’s role in Agneepath, produced by SRK’s closest buddy Karan, but refused to do a guest appearance role as his father in Bodyguard. In fact, a frustrated Salman actually asked the makers of Bodyguard to totally do away with the father’s role in the film when Sanjay turned it down because he couldn’t think of any other actor for the act," a source said.

Things further worsened when SRK gifted Sanjay an expensive bike for doing a cameo in his ambitious biggie, Ra. One. However, now that Sanjay has come out and publicly declared that his ties with Salman were too deep to be damaged over such trivial reasons that Salman is his family all that seems to be a thing of the past.

An emotional Salman is reportedly back to being friends with Sanjay, with whom he will incidentally play the co- host in this season’s Bigg Boss. This, in turn, clears the way for Katrina to do an item number in a film produced by Karan’s banner, perceived all along to be pro- SRK. While Katrina is yet to sign on the dotted line, sources said it is only a matter of time now.

"Sheila ki jawani in last year’s Tees Maar Khan and her item dance in Bodyguard have made Katrina a sought- after star for item numbers. Agneepath is a huge production and Karan feels only she could do justice to the number," a source said.

The song in question is composed by rising music director duo Ajay- Atul who composed the songs of the Ajay Devgn- blockbuster Singham. The Karan Johar- produced Agneepath is a remake of the 1990 film of the same name that his dad, the late Yash Johar, had produced with Amitabh Bachchan in the central role.

Hrithik reprises Big B’s National Award- winning role of Vijay Deenanath Chauhan while Priyanka Chopra is cast as the heroine. Sanjay Dutt will essay the villain Kancha Cheena, which was played by Danny in the original. Karan has insisted that his film is not a blind rehash of the original Agneepath but reinterprets the story with a new- age twist.

Katrina’s item dance, if it materialises, would be a sexy new- age twist indeed.

Katrina Kaif’s first public brush with the law was when she was visited by taxmen earlier this year, but that seems to be a closed chapter now. When she alighted from her vehicle at the Mumbai Police headquarters just a few days back, it took onlookers by surprise.

Word spread like wildfire and before long every policeman in the premises was trying to figure out what sort of complaint had brought the pretty actress there. Well, your diarist has the low down.

Apparently Katrina, who is a British national, has been making a trip to the Special Branch every six months in connection with police verification for her work visa. When she first arrived in India, Deven Bharti was in charge of the SB-1 branch and would facilitate the process.

After he was promoted and took charge as the Addl Commissioner, he was replaced by Rajvardhan. Over the years, Katrina developed a rapport with both the officers.

So even after Rajvardhan subsequently moved to Economic Offences Wing as Addl Commissioner and there is a new officer in charge of SB-1 branch, Katrina makes it a point to meet both Bharti and Vardhan for a cuppa whenever she visits police headquarters. We hear many officers are busy figuring how to crash this particular tea party.

Katrina Kaif, after going back and forth several times, had finally decided to decline Ayaan Mukerji’s offer to star in his next film opposite Ranbir Kapoor (Mumbai Mirror, 30 July 2011).

While ’date problems’ and ’pending projects’ were the major reasons cited for her refusal of the offer, the industry is abuzz with rumours of Salman Khan being the one person behind his ex-girlfriend’s decision.

Katrina, who is busy with Salman starrer Ek Tha Tiger and Yash Chopra’s next directorial venture opposite Shah Rukh Khan was apparently asked by Salman to opt out of Ayaan’s next project with Dharma.

According to industry insiders, Salman did not quite like the idea of Katrina working with Ranbir. Katrina and Ranbir, who were dating for a while after the actor’s breakup with Deepika Padukone, parted ways in March 2011.

A source informed Mumbai Mirror, "Katrina was taking her time to decide on Ayaan Mukerji’s because Salman had asked her to stay away from Ranbir. While she couldn’t turn down her good friend Ayaan, Katrina also had to pay heed to Salman. In fact, earlier Katrina had accepted Ayaan’s offer. But then she soon opted out of it."

The fact that Salman is not too fond of Ranbir is common knowledge in the industry. Years back, Salman had a nasty fight with the younger actor in a nightclub. Then to mend bridges, Salman sent Ranbir a painting of his grandfather Raj Kapoor. They became friends and they partied together. But Katrina’s closeness to Ranbir put an end to all of that.

Katrina on the other hand has always been close to Salman even after their romantic relationship came to an end. "Salman has always looked out for Katrina in the industry. He has been like a guide to her. She obviously could not just ignore his wishes when it came to Ayaan’s film," added the source.

A friend of Katrina maintained, "Katrina is not doing Ayaan’s film. But that’s certainly not due to Salman Khan."
