Katrina Kaif opens up on her breakup with Ranbir Kapoor


After calling her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor a blessing, Katrina Kaif again opened her heart out about her split with the ‘Barfi’ actor. Katrina and Ranbir dated for five years and was in a live-in relationship for a year but finally they called it a quit.

She has once again spoken at length about that phase of her life in an interview with Mumbai Mirror.

"I had to break before I could proceed to rebuild myself. I had to unravel and feel everything that had happened I had to take full responsibility for my part in the equation, what I could and should have done better. And accept that the parts that I was not responsible for were not my problem," the actress said. One thought that helped me when I was at my lowest was something my mom told me, 'So many girls and women go through the same thing, you feel you are alone, but you are not.' That thought was very comforting."

The actress also said that one should never lose oneself in a relationship and "must protect and maintain your individuality.

"Your sense of self-worth comes from within and not from another person. You come into this world alone, and you leave alone. That’s something you should not lose sight of," the actress added.

Katrina added that she’s always been the emotional person. She further told the leading daily, “I’m a Cancerian and a sensitive soul. I’m not going to lose that or change that for anyone. But what I have learnt is that as a woman, you must protect and maintain your identity. Your sense of self-worth comes from within and not from another person. You come into this world alone, and you leave alone. That’s something you should not lose sight of. I’m not saying be guarded in love. No, love with all your heart. Being in a relationship is beautiful and I have a lot to give to a person. But I know now that nobody else gives you your identity.”

Last year, during a conversation with Vogue, Katrina had said, “It’s probably one of the first times in my life where I really had only myself to focus on. And when you focus on yourself, often, the first thing you realise is that you don’t really know yourself. It’s like a period of not knowing, a period of being uncomfortable because you’re seeing yourself in your raw form without embellishments and then accepting that you don’t really know who you are. I now see it as a blessing because I was able to recognise my patterns, thought processes and things that I had been so sure of my whole life. I could see them from a whole different perspective.”

On the work front, Katrina Kaif will be next seen in Ali Abbas Zafar's 'Bharat' opposite Salman Khan.
