Katrina lost in my eyes, Sidharth Malhotra


Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra spark immense chemistry in‘Baar Baar Dekho. Before the film started to roll, the couple attended a workshop which really helped the on-screen couple to perform their role well. Katrina and Sidharth’s chemistry is very much talked about.  

So when the charming couple was asked what is the reason behind their incredible chemistry, Sid said, “We didn’t know each other, we had only met socially. Workshops helped us know each other. She (Katrina) has a good story about how she got lost in my eyes during the workshop. And that was it. She got very distracted after that”.

Sidharth Malhotra plays Jai in Nitya Mehra’s directional venture, throwing light in his character, Sid said, “I play a professor, who is very pragmatic, antisocial and obsessive about his work. He has a childhood girlfriend, Diya. They grew up together and love each other, but when it’s time for marriage, he develops commitment phobia. He is worried his marriage will hamper his career”.

Katrina tells us about ‘Baar Baar Dekho’, “It’s my second film with Excel (Entertainment) after Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011). When they approached me for Baar Baar Dekho, I was excited, as I really like the kind of films they make. Karan (Johar) called me up (he is the co-producer) and the narration happened at his house. Sidharth had already been cast, and I went with the preconceived notion that it’s a period film, as I had heard a lot about it. Throughout the narration, I kept thinking we’ll go back in time, and before I knew it, the narration ended. I was really moved by the message the film conveys -- as a woman, it evoked many emotions in me”.

Sid reveals as how it was working with Nitya, “She is fabulous and extremely talented. For a first-time director, she has picked a script which is very difficult in narrative and emotions. We are creating something which is make-believe; you don’t know what the future is like, but yet we go forward in this story. We go forward, even as there is a character who is unaware of what has happened in the meanwhile. So, Nitya has done a fabulous job, she’s a go-getter. She knows how to lead a set and has a great future in Hindi films”.

Not Kala Chashma but ‘Dariya’ is Katrina’s favorite song from the film, “There is this song in the film called Dariya. I think that will stay with me the longest. Right now of course Kala Chashma is the most fun song. I also like Sau Aasmaan as a romantic track”.
