Siddharth Malhotra says he always had a ‘huge crush’ on Katrina Kaif
During a media interaction for the promotion of their upcoming film, actor Siddharth Malhotra confessed that he had a crush on his ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ co-actor Katrina Kaif.
The actors and the film’s director Nitya Mehra were a part of the interaction, during which Kat revealed that she loves working with female directors. She said, “I believe, women write the best characters. I’ve always had a great time with female directors — from Zoya Akhtar to Nitya. Women write characters that are more real and consequently, they are easier to portray.”
When Sid was asked about his experience of working with the ‘Bang Bang’ actress, he said, “Working with Katrina was as easy as it is sitting with her here today. She’s a great example to live by. What I’ve learnt from her is that no matter how big you become, you have to work just as hard as you did when you started off. She never takes her stardom for granted.”
Nitya also spoke about the chemistry between her leading pair, “It’s been a brilliant experience working with them. I absolutely love the both of them. I fell in love with them as soon as they said yes to my film! It became easy for me to direct the film because I started looking at them as my characters. Initially it was like witnessing a relationship. There were ups and downs, getting along and occasional fights.”
Sid also elaborated on the ‘chemistry’ while speaking about the first day of the shoot. The ‘Ek Villain’ actor revealed how it was easy for him, but not so much his his co-star. “It was a simple exercise — Katrina and I had to look at each other into the eyes for as long as we could. I didn’t blink even office. Wonder why Katrina’s eyes kept drooping! I have always had a huge crush on Katrina. Imagine romancing your crush! I’m very lucky. She’s worthy of a Baar Baar Dekho!”
