Earlier this week, a television channel went ballistic with an image showing Katrina Kaif reaching out and hugging Ranbir Kapoor on the road. The suggestive clipping had the channel wondering aloud what Salman Khan would have to say about Katrina's public display of intimacy.
The actress is furious. ''Nothing .Why should he have anything to say about a scene from a film? It's a scene we shot for Rajneeti on a street of Bhopal. Obviously some camera outside our unit shot and decided to up the channel's TRPs with one more scandal story. But it's disgusting.''
Katrina sees this as a clear case of 'match'-mixing. ''First of all it's illegal to shoot people without their knowledge. And then how can they pass off a shot from a film as a paparazzi scoop?
''People can easily see I'm dressed for the character in Rajneeti. And am I so dumb as to indulge in a public display of affection with my co-star? Grant me more common sense,'' the actress said.
Katrina, who's in Bhopal shooting with Ranbir for Rajneeti, took off for Delhi last week to shoot for Vogue. She had to skip the music release of Salman Khan's Main Aurr Mrs Khanna in Mumbai.
''Another controversy? We’re all busy with our commitments. And I’m also busy fighting off strange allegations.''
Meanwhile, the strangest of this week's news was Ayesha Shroff's claim that the surname given on Katrina’s passport was, Turquotte. "That's my mother surname,'' Katrina revealed!
