Katrina Kaif, who is known to be a very private person, has been surprisingly candid about her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor. In an interview with Mid-Day, she revealed that the reason she opened up about her past was because she could not avoid the subject forever.
"If I had my way, I would have never spoken about my relationship. I chose to talk about it because the media was interested in it. I couldn't have dodged the bullet every time. I would have sounded rude if I did that. So, the best thing was to share the bare minimum I wanted to, and be frank enough to accept the reality. We [she and Ranbir] still have respect for each other, and that will not change," the actress said.
While the in Katrina's life, it has made her more mature as a person. "When I was going through separation, one of my sisters was also in the same phase. That's when I realised that since my life was out in the open, the ego was more bruised, but at the end of the day, we both felt the same pain. I found solace in reading. My friends were also a strong source of support. I don't have any regrets [about that chapter]. I have come out of the experience a lot more mature," she said.
On the work front, Katrina is currently basking in the success of Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat, in which she was seen romancing Salman Khan. The film, which is an official remake of the Korean drama Ode To My Father, was received well by the critics as well as the audience.
Bharat was hailed as Katrina's best performance till date. India Today critic Ananya Bhattacharya wrote in her review, "That crown of perm in place, Katrina's hard work is visible in Bharat. As the strongheaded and strong-willed Kumud/Madam-Sir, Katrina sinks her teeth into her role."
Currently, Katrina is shooting for Rohit Shetty's cop drama Sooryavanshi, in which she is cast opposite Akshay Kumar. The film is slated to release on March 27, 2020.
