Steering clear of commenting directly on the popularity of the pairing of her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor and his ex-flame Deepika Padukone, actor Katrina Kaif says everybody is free to work with each other. Gossip mills were abuzz that the 32-year-old Phantom star was getting insecure of Ranbir-Deepika’s chemistry in their upcoming film, Tamasha.

The pair, who dated for a year, were first seen together on screen in Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008), followed by the 2014 blockbuster Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, which marked their first release post split.

An online survey has claimed that Ranbir-Deepika would be the industry’s next Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol, who are considered as an iconic on-screen couple. When asked what does she feel about it, Katrina said, “I am not a director, so I don’t look at actors like that. Everybody is free to work with each other.”

“No nothing like that,” said the Ek Tha Tiger actor when asked about such reports. She is currently shooting for romantic-drama Baar Baar Dekho with actor Sidharth Malhotra. The movie is the directorial debut of Nitya Mehra, who earlier assisted actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar on Lakshya and Don.

“I am coming back after months of shooting in Scotland with Sidharth, so it feels great to be back in Mumbai.” She will be next seen in Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor.
