I enjoy my dancing: Katrina Kaif

The 26-year-old speaks on working with Akshay Kumar and a female director.

MUMBAI: Katrina Kaif says working with a female director - Farah Khan in Tees Maar Khan - has been a nice experience.

“I’ve had wonderful experiences of working with male directors as well, but it’s definitely nice working with a female director. The vibe is different and there is a different way that you would bond or gel with a director who is a woman,” Kaif said.

The actor is all praises for choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, who helmed Main Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om.

“She is so clear about what she wants to do and is not a hard taskmaster on the sets at all. She never wastes a minute of your time and will never call you earlier (than needed). She is a phenomenal director and I think she is fantastic,” she gushed.

Tees Maar Khan, which releases on December 24, is an action-comedy and stars Akshay Kumar opposite Kaif. Akshaye Khanna also has a pivotal role in the film.

The 26-year-old said, “I play a wannabe actor in the film who is a very innocent girl.”

“She doesn’t see that a person might be doing something wrong. So Akshay is constantly running after her to save her from situations that she gets herself into because she is too trusting.

“She is very ambitious too, but in a simple way, not in a very intelligent way. It was fun to play this character. I just kind of went with the flow,” added Kaif, whose item song “Sheila Ki Jawaani” is already something of a hit.

“I didn’t have to lose weight (for the song). I just wanted to set a different kind of target for myself in terms of fitness. Also, the clothes I’m wearing in the song demanded a more toned up look. So that’s why I worked towards that,” she explained.

Doesn’t the title of the song sound suggestive?

“Lyrics are lyrics. No one should take them literally and seriously, or analyse them in songs like these. If you believe that you are doing something clean and keeping yourself in the boundaries of dignity, then the lyrics and mood of the song don’t matter and you feel comfortable while performing it,” she said.

“I enjoy my dancing. I don’t know how technically good I am, but I like doing it and I enjoyed it,” she added.

Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar have worked in a number of films together, including Welcome, Namastey London and Singh is Kinng.

“I think it’s a new approach that we take in each film. You have never seen us in this kind of space and this zone. That is something we always look for because when you do so many films together, it’s important that we don’t do the same things,” she said.
