Having starred in some hit films over the years, Katrina Kaif is awaiting the release of some more big ticket movies. The actor believes life has been good so far, but says she is looking forward to the best phase in her career.
“I hope the best phase of my career is yet to come. A person faces different phases in life, which include phases of unsettlement where you’re not sure about anything. Right now my life is only about going to the film sets and coming back home,” states Katrina.
“Everything in my life has happened unexpectedly. Whatever happens, it happens for the good. God has taken care of everything so far, and everything will happen in its own time,” added the 28-year-old.
The successful British-born actor once gave six back-to-back hits: Namastey London, Apne, Partner, Welcome, Race and Singh Is Kinng. She then went on to do films like New York and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and proved critics wrong with her powerful performance in Raajneeti.
Accolades continued to pour in after her performances in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Now, she is set to be seen on screen with her former real life beau Salman Khan in Ek Tha Tiger, releasing on August 15. The movie is directed by Kabir Khan and is a romantic-action thriller.
However, Katrina feels Salman can’t handle the romantic hero avatar beyond a point. “I think right now audience likes him in action and romantic genres, and I think it works also for Salman, but beyond a point Salman can’t handle romantic scenes,” she said.
This is not the first time Katrina has shared screen space with Salman. They two have been paired together in films like Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya?, Partner and Yuvraaj as well.
