Looks like Salman Khan leaves no stone unturned to express his fondness for Katrina Kaif.
At the IIFA 2017 press con here yesterday, while Katrina was speaking about her performance for the award night, the 'Dabangg' Khan interrupted, saying, "But you don't have to worry anything about her. I think she is one of the best dancers we have in the industry."
Then looking at Alia, who also joined them for the conference, he added, "There's a tie going on between them (Katrina-Alia)."
To which the 24-year-old actress said, "Please, I am terrible. I am just cute."
"You can't be worse than me and I am not even cute," replied Salman.
On that note, Alia, who has been nominated in the 'Best Actress' category for Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi, is super excited about her debut performance and "can't wait" to go and hit the floors .
"I have already started preparing. I am even going to be dancing in my sleep. I can't wait to go there and perform for the people. That's the best feeling ever," she said.
On the other hand, the Baar Baar Dekho actress, who is a veteran on the IIFA stage, without spilling the beans about her performance said, "I am hoping it will be something memorable."
However, the Sultan star's reply to the same question was the best, "No idea. Only after I am done with the performance, I might have an idea of what I have done on stage."
Set to be held at the iconic MetLife Stadium in New York July 14-15, the two-day IIFA festival will see a congregation of film celebrities.
The event will be aired on July 16, on Katrina's birthday.
