But now, Katrina Kaif has managed to do the unthinkable — grill Salman about his marriage, if only on the silver screen. An insider from Yash Raj Films, who has seen the first trailer of Ek Tha Tiger (the film sees Salman and Katrina acting together) informs that there is a "very tongue-in-cheek" sequence about his marriage.
"It’s a sweet and heart-warming sequence. And the way it (the trailer) has been cut, audiences will love Katrina’s direct question to Salman. What you will see in the trailer is Kat’s character (Zoya) asking Bhai (Tiger) if he is married. Later, she goes on to suggest that "it’s time you get married". We are sure it will generate a lot of interest among audiences," says the insider.
Salman and Katrina, who have shared screen space in films like Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005), Partner (2007) and Yuvvraj (2008), were last seen together in the special title song of Salman’s 2011 blockbuster, Bodyguard. "If you go into details, it’s Bhai and Katrina’s only romantic film featuring them as a lead pair," says the insider.
And Salman has always maintained that Katrina and he share a good working equation. "Yes, she is very comfortable with me and my entire family. In fact, she is a part of the family. We have known her for the longest time now," Salman told us earlier when Bodyguard released. As for Ek Tha Tiger, all we know so far is that Salman plays a RAW agent, while Katrina is a Trinity Music College student and choreographer. The trailer is likely to hit theatres on June 29. The film, directed by Kabir Khan (he has made New York in 2009 and Kabul Express in 2006) is scheduled to release on August 15. While Katrina is busy shooting in London, Salman wasn’t available for comment.
