For many days the media was speculating as to whether or not actress Katrina Kaif will shoot for an item song in ‘Bodyguard’. Ever since the news came out that Salman Khan had requested Katrina to feature in an item number in his latest film, the gossip mongers had been speculating that the film’s leading lady; Kareena Kapoor had taken strong objection to Katrina being approached.
However, all rumours have been put to rest now as Katrina has recently shot for the song ‘Aaya re aaya Bodyguard’ with Salman. Kat and Salman maintain a ‘healthy’ friendship despite their break up and it would have been surprising had Katrina had turned down Salman’s request. However, those hoping for a reunion can put their overactive brains to rest as she is in no mood for another relationship and is intent upon concentrating her energies on films.
As an answer to those speculating about her wish to get back with Salman, Katrina has said that she would have done the item song anyway as it was a very small appearance. She further added that the main reason for her to do the item number was Salman’s sister Alvira who is producing ‘Bodyguard’ along with her husband Atul Agnihotri.
On Tuesday, Katrina Kaif shot for the item song ‘Aaya Re Aaya Bodyguard’ with Salman. She could spare just a day and when Salman, in all his wisdom, decided to rope in his bodyguard Shera into the number, Katrina smilingly bore with that intrusion also.
Exhausted at the end of the day, she said, “It’s just small appearance. There was no question of not doing it. And not just because it’s Salman’s song.”
Katrina’s relationship with Salman Khan’s family is unconditional. She remains as close to Salman’s sister Alvira today as she was when she was in a relationship with Salman.
Says a source close to Katrina, “Katrina is not only doing the song because of Salman. She would in any case do anything for him. But more than Salman, she agreed to do the item song for Salman’s sister Alvira who produces Bodyguard along with her husband Atul Agnihotri.”
Says Katrina, “Yes, Baby (Alvira) is a very dear friend. And there was no question of saying no to her.”
So is this a move towards getting back close to the Khans? Everyone is talking about the public hug that Salman Khan gave the lovely actress at an event last week.
But Katrina protests, “It was just a brief friendly hug, not a slow-motion lingering embrace that everyone seems to have imagined. Just like my kiss with Hrithik in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. You’ve to admit it was highly exaggerated in the way it was written. It’s just a normal fleeting kiss and not a torrid smooch. And can we not grow up about kissing in films? It’s like fussing about clapping or laughing on screen. Kissing is just as normal.”
