MUMBAI: Singer-turned-actor Ali Zafar is reportedly helping Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif in achieving her goal to master the art of strumming.
People are raving about Katrina Kaif's rockstar image in her upcoming film "Mere Brother Ki Dulhan" (MBKD), but not just in films, the Bollywood actress is learning to play guitar even in real life.
Zafar is Katrina's co-star in MBKD, which is a love triangle and also stars Imran Khan and during the shoot of the film, he gave Katrina some guitar lessons.
"It was great working with Ali. The nice thing is that Ali is also a musician and since I'm learning how to play the guitar and I'm very interested in it, I'm trying to learn from whoever I can", said Katrina.
"Farhan Akhtar taught me some stuff during 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' and Ali has also taught me some stuff during this film. He is a good teacher and we are trying to get into a form where we can play a live song together in one of the promotional events for this film very soon," Katrina told reporters here at the music launch of the film.

He's teaching her guitar? Not trying to discredit him or anything but I've never heard any advanced guitar work from him to be honest. He just plays rhythm guitar, which is rather basic as far as guitar playing goes (I also play guitar).
@John: if u you've ever followed him on twitter or his facebook fan page....his posts prove you wrong..and wats so bad about teaching a co-star something you're good at...
Ali , you are our pride. May jealous critics not to bother you in future. Be profeesional as you have shown us to mitigate the extremism in Pakistan. Thanx KK showed her professional approach so far. Steady n Winner , I wish you people best of luck. :-)
@maru: I am surprised and dejected about your comment. Your comment is an insult to decent people and their families. I have great respect for anyone's parents. Why should Ali Zafar's parents or he speak English at all. It is not mandatory for Zafar to speak English. He is welcome to Bollywood if he can communicate in Hindi/Urdu.Or he can learn if he does not.
@Syed Kiyanoosh: check out his parents profile! the way they speak urdu and punjabi in their home, i doubt if he knows english that well..
Lagey rahoo munna bhai...best title for Ali...sada bacha sonna wa...now katrins is thinking why pkaistani visas are closed to indian...i should visit pakistan...
Instead of Urdu Katrina should learn Hindustani- mixture of Urdu and Hindi- the lingua franca of urban UP. Well, Urdu sikhnemey bhi koi noksan nehi hai, na shikwa na geela ! I doubt whether Ali Zafar knows good Urdu
for crying out loud he's already married! and i saw him on a show recently and he was perfectly normal about the things like nothing really happened. way to go ali! you are one decent man with lots of pride!!
Saadaaa bachaa phassa dittai ae Kuryai Please don't bring her in Pakistan, we can't handle Sania Mirza
Just looks can take you to heights - Perfect example is Katrina Kaif. At least, Ali Zafar could've taught her some good urdu... so she can learn acting also!
Katrina is blooming like a flower. She landed in 2003 and from an unknown face she attained the top most heroine's position. She worked real hard and still works very hard. A thorough professional Katrina is learning Guiter. This girl or lady continues to surprise her with multi-talents ! Farhan and Ali Zafar are talented singers cum musicians. Carry on, Katrina dear ! Our blessings and 'DOA' for you . Keep on surprising and entertaining us , the 'aam' audiences !
This is extremely old news... what are you up to ET Editor?
Lucky Ali !
@John, We turn, they already. Cheers.
At least somebody who is making us proud!
lol @ bulbul , Its guitar teaching phase-II :)
Ali Zafar will turn into a monkey for Katrina Kaif. Like a typical Pakistani, its time he will lose all his savings for a woman.
is it not an old news?
