Sep 23, 2014: It’s not often that Katrina Kaif explains herself when it comes to her relationships, but the 31-year old actor slams reports that she goes to her alleged former flame, actor Salman Khan, for help every other day.
=> Of late, there have been many reports of Salman ‘helping’ you.
A=> These reports of me calling him for help etc., aren’t true. I don’t call him every other day, or every time there is a problem. But if I was ever in trouble or if I ever needed help from someone, I believe he is the kind of person who would help a friend or anyone who has been close to him. And I believe that he would help me.
=> Are you in touch with his family?
A=> I am in touch with Alvira (Salman’s sister). She has been like a sister to me. We had a very deep connection, and that (equation) still remains. That’s why I am in touch with her. She will always be dear to me.
=> You missed out on the Ganpati celebrations at Salman’s place this year.
A=> I was shooting that day, so I couldn’t go. Alvira had sent me a message, but since I was working, I couldn’t be part of it (the celebrations).
=> You must be excited about (younger sister) Isabelle’s movie debut.
A=> She herself is very excited about it. The premiere went really well in the US. She is amazingly talented and has had four years of acting training. Plus, she is a trained dancer. The only thing is that she is yet to decide whether to put effort into learning the language (Hindi) for this industry, if that’s what she wants to do.
=> Salman apparently said that Isabelle is more talented than you!
A=> I am sure that’s probably true (smiles). I have seen some of her tapes (auditions). She is a very good actor, who has been properly trained. And this is the kind of training I didn’t have. So, I think Salman has said something right (laughs).
=>Reports were rife that you plan to launch Isabelle in Bollywood
A=> She would benefit far more from an established producer/director as compared to me. Otherwise it will look like I am helping her.
