Actress Katrina Kaif, who’d learnt deep-sea diving and bike riding for her film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara had revealed that though learning to ride a bike was exciting, she wasn’t too thrilled about the deep-sea diving. “I can’t say that deep-sea diving is something I’ll look forward to again,” the actor had said, even though she pulled it off convincingly in the film. “As actors you just do what you got to do with all your heart,” the actor had added. And sticking to her own mantra, Katrina’s now gearing up to explore the action genre and is going all out for it.
While the actor will soon be seen in the action thriller Ek Tha Tiger with actor Salman Khan, sources say that it’s Salman who’s actually doing all the action. However, according to insiders, in her next action outing Dhoom 3, Katrina herself will be doing a major chunk of action. “She has been rigorously training for her role in Dhoom 3 and since it involves a lot of action, she has been training with harness and the likes to get her action right,” says an insider. “The training involves flips and jumps as well, and Katrina’s been trying to avoid using a stunt double as much as it’s possible,” adds the insider. “Of course it’s getting very hectic for her as she’s also rehearsing for a song in the Yash Chopra film and dubbing for Ek Tha Tiger, but she’s doing it all.”
Meanwhile, the actor who recently celebrated her birthday made sure that it was a rather low-key affair this time around. Though Katrina managed to keep controversies at bay, what she couldn’t avoid are the constant rumours that keep plaguing her friendship with good friend Salman. The actor triggered off a fresh round of speculation when she drove in to the actor’s place in her new car. Many speculated that it was new car gifted to her by Salman.
However, the actor herself is amused by this latest set of rumours. Says a source, “Katrina was really amused to hear that people are speculating that the car has been gifted to her, as the fact is that she had bought it herself a month-and-a-half ago. But since she had been busy shooting in London, she didn’t get a chance to drive it around yet. And now that she is back, she is using her car.” Adds an insider, “Whenever there’s anything to do with Salman and Katrina, it just triggers off a host of speculations. By now both know that no matter what the truth, there will always be rumours and it’s futile to clarify such baseless talk.”
