Kat, Ranbir are a hit!
After Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor could be Katrina Kaif’s next hit
The actress, who is already starring in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani and Rajniti opposite Ranbir, is on the verge of signing yet another film opposite him. This film will be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and will be a serious one unlike his Ajab Prem ...
While the actress plays a smooth operator and an articulate orator in Prakash Jha’s Rajniti, she plays a hysterical character in Ajab Prem ...
Playing dumb didn’t come easily to Katrina. Talking about her role in Ajab Prem ... , Katrina said, “Throughout the film, I’m this clueless Catholic girl from Bandra. Very self-important, dramatic and hysterical. Her problems are very serious to her but very funny to onlookers.”
Being a woman in-charge and always in control of her emotions, Katrina had a tough time letting go. “Raj Santoshi had to show me how to do the broad comedy from Andaz Apna Apna, which Salman and Aamir had done earlier. He would actually show me how to gesticulate and roll my eyes. Once I got the hang of it, I was fine,” added Katrina.
However, it was a cakewalk for co-star Ranbir, who plays a satirical synthesis of Raj Kapoor’s Awara and Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights in the same film.
Commenting on her co-star, Katrina said, “Since he’s a natural inheritor of the Chaplin and Raj Kapoor school of acting, Ranbir was spot-on. He plays a bumbling do-gooder very much like Chaplin and Raj Kapoor. It was fun watching him do the goofy, clumsy scenes so smoothly.”
Whether their serious roles will be as much of a cakewalk however, will only be seen when their third film together rolls.
