Ranbir Kapoor says that Katrina Kaif was not serious when she recently said, at a press event for their upcoming film Jagga Jasoos, that she wouldn’t want to work with him again. He explained that her words were taken out of context.

In an interview to NDTV, Ranbir said that it was all a part of a joke. “The honest truth behind it is that we were in a Facebook chat. I cracked a joke on her and she cracked it back on me. And she’s saying ‘It’s really fair that the media has taken just my joke and made this out to be like something that I just said. I wouldn’t say that.’ So yeah, it’s not true,” he said.

At a recent press event, Katrina had said she found working with Ranbir to be difficult. “It’s very difficult. People now have proof that he is a very trying and testing person. Ranbir has also gestured (to me) to not work on a film together. It will never happen again,” she had said.

When Ranbir was asked to comment on the same, he refused to say anything and cited time constraints.

Now, in the same interview with NDTV, Ranbir praised Katrina for bringing out the best in him. “Katrina and I have an amazing creative partnership. I love working with her. She’s really allowed me to shine whenever I work with her and she’s very gracefully done that for me. She’s increased my stardom when she was a much bigger star,” he said.

The couple ended their relationship of five years in January 2016. Following this, there were reports of the two not getting along on the sets of the film and this was also speculated to be the reason behind the film’s delay.

After the shoot for Jagga Jasoos was complete, reports also did the rounds that both Katrina and Ranbir won’t be promoting the film together.

As for their future projects, Katrina is shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai alongside Salman Khan, while Ranbir is busy with actor Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, that is being helmed by Rajkumar Hirani.
