Actress Katrina Kaif reminisced about their time studying Kathak with the same guruji, along with fellow actor Priyanka Chopra (dance teacher). Katrina recalled how Priyanka Chopra ‘was fire’ and danced flawlessly with precise movements in a recent interview. Despite being shy, Katrina claimed she would perform a few steps. Guruji would tell Katrina, “It’s okay,” as he watched Priyanka perform. Priyanka is fantastic, Katrina remarked, adding that their paths usually met during their “difficult moments.”
For the first time ever, Katrina and Priyanka will appear together on screen in Farhan Akhtar’s Jee Le Zaraa. Along with Ishaan Khatter, Alia Bhatt appears in the movie as well. Farhan, Zoya Akhtar, and Reema Kagti are the authors. The movie, according to Katrina, “is pencilled in for later part of next year.”
In an interview with Film Companion, Katrina declared, “I truly consider both Alia and Priyanka to be very good friends of mine. PC and I have a history dating back to our time studying Kathak at guruji’s. I’ll explain what took place. Therefore, PC was just a little older than I was. As a result, you arrive at class, tie your ghungroos (metal bells linked together on the ankle), and stand in the corner as guruji summons each student up to dance in the centre one by one.In a dimly lit area in the corner, everyone is gathered around. Just a fan and a plain salwar kameez—no AC. When Priyanka used to get up and dance while behaving like fire, Guruji would utter the words “wah, wah, wah” (wow). Katrina, too.
Katrina’s next film appearance will be in Gurmmeet Singh’s horror-comedy Phone Bhoot. The movie, which also features Ishaan Khatter and Siddhant Chaturvedi, will debut on November 4. Along with this, Katrina will appear in the upcoming action-thriller Tiger 3 with Salman Khan and the upcoming Merry Christmas from filmmaker Sriram Raghavan opposite Vijay Sethupathi.
Priyanka will appear in It’s All Coming Back To Me for viewers. She will also appear in the Russo Brothers’ television show Citadel. Amazon Prime Video will host the release. Patrick Morgan is helming the next science fiction drama series, which also features Richard Madden and Priyanka.
