Saif Ali Khan, who will again be seen onscreen with Katrina Kaif in Phantom, said he is very fond of his co-star and that any person would be lucky to have her as a girlfriend, fiancee or more.
“I think Katrina is one of the most lovely girls I’ve worked with. And anybody would be lucky to have her as girlfriend, fiancee or in the future something more,” he told reporters at the trailer launch of their upcoming action film Phantom. Saif, who also featured with Katrina in the 2008 film Race, termed her as, “One of the most beautiful and biggest stars in Bollywood.”
“I’ve known Katrina for a while. I’ve watched her from being a relatively new actor in Race to becoming one of the biggest stars in the country, working very hard and becoming an amazing personality on screen. It’s always nice to spend time with her. She is extremely relaxed and is someone who I’ve enjoyed talking to and working with. I think we had an easy equation, ” he said.
Saif is returning to the silver screen two years after Bullet Raja and according to him, it is a dream situation to feature in a film like Phantom. “I love this kind of movies. To get a chance to work with Kabir and having Sajid as a producer has given me a dream situation,” added the 44-year-old actor.
Directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Phantom is based on the theme of terrorism. The film has incorporated 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s original speech in the trailer of Phantom. Apart from Saif and Katrina, the film also stars stars popular Bengali actor Sabyasachi Chakrabarty and Zeeshan Ayyub. The film is slated to release on August 28.
