Actors Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are coming together again in the big Eid release of the year, Bharat. The two actors attended the launch of the song Zinda where they spoke about their experiences of working on the film besides pulling each other’s leg.

When a mediaperson addressed Salman as Bhaijaan, the actor pointed towards Katrina and said, “Par inke liye Bhaijaan nahi hain (But I am not a brother to Katrina),” leaving the audience in splits. Salman also added, pointing to Katrina, “Aap log inhe Bhaijaan bula sakte hain (You can call her Bhaijaan though).” Katrina also took a swipe at Salman and said, “You need to up your Instagram game,” to which Salman replied, “I have been in trouble due to my Instagram game.”


Salman also gave a witty reply when asked about his reaction to an editor who commented on TV actor Hina Khan’s Cannes look, saying that Cannes is turning into Chandivali Studios. Salman said, “This is very responsible of the editor to make a comment like that, so thoughtful. I don’t understand what did he want to say? Cannes is Chandivali or Chandivali is going to Cannes.”

Talking about her character in Bharat, Katrina said, “As an actor, its definitely an incredible experience working with Ali,” to which Salman said, “Thank you Priyanka”. Priyanka was supposed to do Bharat till she left the film to get married; Katrina had stepped in then. Salman also said that Katrina is very good in the movie, and he is sure that she’ll get a National Award for her role in the film.

To this, Salman replied, “Bahut zyada (a lot).” The song Zinda gives an insightful peep into the world of Bharat, which is set to hit theatres on June 5. It also stars Disha Patani, Sunil Grover, Sonali Kulkarni and Jackie Shroff.
