‘Salman Thinks Of Large Story, But Akshay Is…’: Katrina Kaif Compares Both Bollywood Superstars, Shares Working Experience

Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar differ in that, according to Katrina Kaif, “Salman is always thinking of the larger story of a film rather than the scene at hand alone.” With Akshay, there’s a lot more improvisation.”

Katrina Kaif is the perfect co-star because of her laid-back demeanour, strong work ethic, popularity, and talent. It makes sense that she has collaborated with several actors on several occasions. It’s interesting to note that she has appeared in up to seven different films with Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.

These 7 films with Salman are Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005), Partner (2007), Yuvvraaj (2008), Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), Bharat (2019), and Tiger 3 (2023). With Akshay, she featured in Humko Deewana Kar Gaye (2006), Namastey London (2007), Welcome (2007), Singh Is Kinng (2008), De Dana Dan (2009), Tees Maar Khan (2010), and Sooryavanshi (2021). She also appeared in cameos in a film with these actors: Hello (2008) with Salman Khan and Blue (2009) with Akshay Kumar. This makes it 8 films in total with these top stars.

“Two Totally Different Individuals”

During an extensive interview with Mayank Shekhar of Mid-Day, Katrina Kaif divulged details on this facet and the distinction between the two. Katrina said that Salman Khan is not an early riser, in contrast to Akshay.

Katrina revealed, “It’s just the morning and night thing—who you see more daylight with. With Akshay [a morning person], I just have to request him for a later call time on the set. With Salman, it’s the opposite.”

She added, “I have to ask Salman, ‘Please come early, no?’ That apart, they’re two different individuals. While it doesn’t look like it, Salman is always thinking of the larger story of a film rather than the scene at hand alone. With Akshay, there’s a lot more improvisation.” (Read More: Pooja Bedi Shares Throwback Image Of Old Friend Salman Khan And Their Fun Times Together)

Nevertheless, Katrina Kaif makes it clear that she does not focus on what her co-actor is doing. She came prepared to set. “That’s what I do on my own. And then I incorporate that with the director and co-actor.”

Katrina Kaif also opened up about a lesser-known aspect of her career, revealing that she was initially slated to star in the 2008 film Bachna Ae Haseeno alongside Ranbir Kapoor. In the interview, Katrina disclosed that she was supposed to portray the role of Ranbir’s fourth girlfriend in the film, but unfortunately, her character didn’t make it to the final cut.
