Bollywood might have a reputation for catfights, but Katrina Kaif believes otherwise. As a matter of fact, she insists that "people rarely interact with each other" in Bollywood and that "we (actors) hardly even see each other".
"I probably interact with them once in a year. But when you do, you have a good time," says Katrina, who adds that she has a "great time" whenever she meets Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
But the person who Katrina feels she has a "genuine connection" with is Anushka Sharma. They shared screen space in Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012).
"I get along with her very well. But that’s also because I have done a film with her. So we have hung out. We have a lot of fun together. I am not in touch with her over the phone and we don’t chat all the time, but whenever we have spent time together, I have genuinely connected with her," says Katrina.
Ask her if it gets difficult to maintain relationships with her contemporaries in the competitive place that Bollywood is, and she says, "See, even if you are competitive by nature, you tend to mature as a person over the years. Other things in life start becoming important. As an artiste, you will always remain passionate about your work, but other aspects of your life also become very important to you." She adds, "Plus, I am too critical of myself to be nervous about what’s going on around me."
