Katrina is a stupendous actor: Shah Rukh Khan

Yash Chopra’s next movie is one of the most eagerly anticipated movies, not just because Yash Chopra makes a comeback behind the camera but also because the movie brings together Katrina Kaif and Shah Rukh Khan for the first time.

Shah Rukh Khan, who is working with Katrina for the first time in the movie, said that Katrina Kaif is a stupendous actor.

“I got to shoot with Katrina Kaif for the first time, which was wonderful. I do a couple of films a year and I haven't worked with her. I think she is a stupendous actor. Everyone says about her being hardworking and very talented. It’s more important how we work together… how we work as a team,” he said to a daily.

The acto said that everytime he works with someone young he learns some things from them and while shooting for this movie he has learnt a few things from Katrina Kaif.

“When I work with a lot of young actors, I learn a lot as they have a different way of doing scenes. I have worked now for 21 years, they have been working for 10 years. When Katrina is doing a scene, she has a different way of approaching it. And when she approaches it differently, as a co-actor I also try to think if she is doing it differently, there must be a reason so let me also try it and adapt myself to do it differently. So that give and take has been absolutely fantastic,” he said.

Shah Rukh Khan has worked in many Yash Chopra Production movies over the years. Yash Chopra’s last movie as the director ‘Veer-Zara’ also starred Shah Rukh Khan.

“It is nice to shoot with Yashji after 6-7 years. It’s nostalgic, very tricky. Shooting is nice with him because we are one big family. We have worked with each other for 21 years. There are lots of moments and we have had great time making films,” he said.

Shah Rukh Khan, who completed the first schedule in London along with Katrina Kaif, said that the shooting wasn’t as easy as it’s been said in the media.

“I read that shooting with Yash Chopra is a picnic but shooting is never a picnic. It was hardly like a picnic and it was very cold. Its hard work... it’s a difficult film,” he said.

Shah Rukh said that the next schedule would happen after the IPL.

“We have finished part of the film and hopefully in the next schedule after IPL we will complete the film,” he concluded.

Along with Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif, the movie also stars Anushka Sharma.

The movie is scheduled to release during Diwali this year, November 16, 2012.
