You're Katrina Kaif, top of your game, gorgeous, successful and you're a self-confessed romantic. So why aren't the bells ringing?
I don't know, I guess that's part of the amazing scenario life can present you with. This is a situation where you feel I have reached here so I have got everything I want and everything is according to plan, and I really do feel blessed. I am praying that there will be a time when I have that perfect blend of work, career and the special someone in my life.
Do you get lonely at times?
Ya, I do think it's a very very lonely place to be in sometimes because you find yourself on the set 12-13 hours in a day surrounded by people. But at the end of the day everyone's still going home to their respective families. And you go home and are alone. I think the difference between so many people on set and then no one is
How important is marriage as an institution to you?
My view on that is very basic. Actually, there is no for or against it. I just believe that in an ideal situation, one gets married and has children eventually and it's a more secure environment for a child to grow up in because for us, growing up without a father, I always felt it was little bit of an off balance. But other than that, each to his own I
What was the link-up with Ranbir all about?
We did two very wonderful films together and when you are working with somebody in that space and you are spending time together, it's natural. But there was a lot of speculation and everybody getting on board to comment. I don't think that was fair. He's been a great co-star and I think we've both been there in each other's life during the period we've been working together.
You guys never dated?
We've always been friends and the speculation got blown out of proportion and that made it awkward for everyone. But it's just something you have to ignore.
There was buzz that Kareena Kapoor wasn't too happy about your song in Bodyguard. Is that true?
I think a person like Kareena whatever little I know of her and I admit I don't know much about her , wouldn't have been insecure. A person in her position, how much she's achieved, the work she's doing, she's not going to be insecure. So I can take the liberty of speaking for her and saying I am pretty sure that's a false report.
You have signed a film with Shah Rukh Khan proves that you not in any camp. How was it getting to work with him?
I'm very excited about doing a film with Yash Chopra and with Shah Rukh Khan and it being a love story, which I have not fully done. I don't understand this camps thing and I really don't think it exists. There are some people who are better friends than other people but we are all here to work. And Shah Rukh's been a lovely gentleman to me whenever he's met me at a party or function. I'm really looking forward to working with him.
How does it feel, you're a benchmark now and new actresses like Nargis Fakhri, Jacqueline Fernandez and Zarine Khan are being compared to you?
Whether they like it or not, the media is choosing to make a comparison. I don't think that's right. I know all the people you are talking about and I think they are all very different individuals and they each have something they bring to the table, which is very different from me. I think they are all beautiful girls who have their own identity and I see them as very strong different individuals.
