Actor Katrina Kaif lost her cool when some photographers kept following her everywhere when she went house hunting in Bandra, Mumbai, with her manager Reshma Shetty. “Tum log mere ko stalk kyun kar rahe ho? Iske baad agar aisa kiya, toh main aapki police mein complaint karoongi,” an entertainment portal quoted her as saying.
On the other hand, even though the actor prefers to stay away from the media glare, she is unperturbed by the fact that her personal life gets written about more than her professional pursuits. Her personal life has been in the public eye ever since her alleged break-up with actor Ranbir Kapoor. “There will be times when your work will be spoken about more, and there may be times when your personal life may be spoken about slightly more. You just understand and accept that it happens to a lot of people; you’re not the only one. It happens to almost every well-known actor,” says Katrina, adding, “Do I wish it wasn’t the case? Of course. It would be lovely if we were just spoken about for our work, and we didn’t have to face any speculation about our personal lives.”
Having said that, point out to her that as celebs, they do sign up for this once they choose to become public figures, and she says, “I do believe that one can guard or successfully maintain a great deal of privacy. Speculation isn’t an invasion of privacy. I don’t see it as that. It’s may be something we wish could be avoided or wish it doesn’t happen. There are lines; sometimes they’re pushed, but they’re rarely crossed.”
Katrina’s fellow Bollywood star Alia Bhatt, however, has a different stance on paparazzi. “I don’t have any issues with them following me around. If I create a fuss about it, and if they stop taking my pictures tomorrow, I will be the first person to cry and say, ‘Meri please photos le lo (Please click my pictures).’ I don’t want to reach that stage. They are just doing their job. So, I am okay with the paparazzi, as long as they don’t enter my bathroom,” she said.
