Bollywood actor Katrina Kaif says romancing “wonderful” superstars like Salman Khan and Aamir Khan is a delight.

Katrina has worked with Salman in films like Ek Tha Tiger and the upcoming Tiger Zinda Hai, she has collaborated with Aamir on the blockbuster Dhoom 3 and now on “Thugs of Hindostan”, which is currently in the making.
“I love romance as everyone does. Romancing people as wonderful as Aamir and Salman is wonderful,” Katrina told reporters when asked about featuring opposite the two actors. Katrina also spoke about how her equation with Salman has evolved over the years.

The actor said the duo have immense respect for each other and reuniting with her Ek Tha Tiger co-star was a fun experience.
“Salman and I know each other for now quite some years. Let’s put it like that. It has been a few years now and I think we share a really great equation and there’s a lot of respect between each other. So, I think that’s great,” she said.

“It’s an incredible story I think Ali (Abbas Zafar, the film’s director) has taken the story forward in an amazing way. It has been really fun everyday on the set with Ali and Salman. It has been really wonderful,” Katrina added.
Meanwhile, even Kabir Khan, who helmed the 2012 blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger, says he is excited to see Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif on celluloid with the films upcoming sequel Tiger Zinda Hai.

The director said it is a great franchise and he is confident the second installment will do well commercially. “It (Tiger Zinda Hai) is superb, it is looking absolutely fantastic. It is a great franchise, it will do really well. The excitement is already there.

“It is great to see Salman and Katrina back together, that chemistry that was so evident five years ago, it is as palpable even today. And Ali has only taken it to a bigger level. It is looking lovely,” Kabir told PTI.
Kabir, however, maintained that comparisons between the two films should be avoided.

“Every director brings his own vision. There should be no comparisons between the two films. This is a separate film. They have their own dynamics.”
It was Kabir who created the characters of the Indian spy Tiger (Salman) and Pakistani spy, Zoya, played by Katrina Kaif. The filmmaker said he is not keen on taking the franchise ahead as he does not believe in the idea of sequels.

“I am not sure about (doing) Tiger franchise, it has already moved forward. I dont do sequels. I might do somebody elses sequels. Out of all the characters that I have created Tiger is one such (part) which should be taken forward and I am glad it is being taken ahead.”
