Katrina bored with ‘hardworking’ tag, wants poetic adjectives
Mumbai–Actress Katrina Kaif says that she has heard numerous compliments terming her “hardworking”, but she would rather prefer more poetic adjectives. “I have said this already, I want to hear more adjectives… I want to hear dream-like, talented, wistful, beautiful – I want to hear poetic ones,” said Katrina on Wednesday at the Reliance Digital store for the promotions of her film “Fitoor”.
Her response was to the query regarding her “Ek Tha Tiger” co-star Salman Khan calling her “most hardworking in the industry” and almost like a “mazdoor” (worker). Her mother in “Fitoor”, Tabu had also claimed that Katrina was the most hardworking actress.
“If my co-stars find and feel that I’m a good worker and a hard worker, that’s good because in all seriousness there is so much riding on a film, everyone puts in so much of their life, hardwork and money. So the most you can do is to give your best, work with your full heart, work as much as you can, then leave it up to god,” she added. Katrina and her co-star Aditya Roy Kapur promoted “Fitoor” in various cities like Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad recently. But she is not tired and wants more.
“Fitoor”, directed by Abhishek Kapoor, is releasing on February 12.
