MUMBAI: After Ranbir Kapoor recently opened up about his much talked-about breakup with longtime girlfriend Katrina Kaif, quizzing the latter on the same is nothing unexpected.
In an interview with Rajeev Masand, when the 33-year-old actress was asked how hard was it to be a professional when her personal life was in turmoil, she said, “Being an actor is quite a luxurious job, we have staff and we are treated specially. But if I worked in say, an office or if I had a normal job, you are still going to go to work. You are still going to be required to do your job, but you are still feeling it in your heart, right?”
Ranbir, Katrina’s split came during the shoot of ‘Baar Baar Dekho, but she did not allow herself to get affected by this emotional crisis.
“You know, in some way all the attention is a good thing. It forces you to step up. It forces you not to indulge in self pity and feeling sorry for yourself. It forces you to get yourself together and stand up quicker because you want to show your best face to the world,” continued the actress.
“You can have your moments where you cannot be any lower and things cannot be tougher, but I take it as a challenge, and that’s what you have to do,” she added.
Sometimes back, Ranbir, in an interview with the same journalist, opening up about the break-up, said, “Whatever I say on any platform is grossly misconstrued. Over the years, I have realised that my personal life is very dear to me especially what my relationship with Katrina is, or was or what it’s going to be. I think after my parents, she’s been the most influential and motivational entity in my life. I don’t want to speak about it. There is no negativity, no sense of bitterness, so there’s nothing to talk about.”
“You don’t need to know if I’m affected or not. My relationship was really punctured by a lot of things; baseless rumours, reports, perceptions. I don’t want to clarify. There’s no awkwardness, as a matter of fact it’s amazing. We’re actors. We aren’t here to bring our personal life and emotions. We come on sets, we bring our characters; emotions. She brings her game on the set and in return I bring my A-game,” he added.
On a related note, the ‘Fitoor’ actress and the ‘Barfi’ actor will be seen together in Anurag Basu’s upcoming movie ‘Jagga Jasoos.’
Presently, Katrina is busy promoting her upcoming movie ‘Baar Baar’ Dekho’ with Sidharth Malhotra, slated to hit the theatres on September 9.
