Katrina wants money to receive award on Salman’s behalf

All knows that if there is some big-shot to help a newcomer in the Hindi film industry, he/she can go a long way. Following this line of thought, one can say that the same happened to our very own Katrina Kaif. She made her debut in the industry with “Boom” in the year 2003, and her role was far from that of a ‘heroine’ making her debut.

However, her luck changed from that of a struggler to a heroine with the help of one Salman Khan. She has come a long way since her debut and today she is one of the leading actresses of Bollywood. She has been the female lead of films like “Ek Tha Tiger”, “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”, “Welcome”, “Ajab Prem ki Gazab Kahaani” and “Raajneeti” for which she had been greatly appreciated. The list seems to be endless. Apart from films she has also some item songs to her credit making her one of the few sought-after actresses for performance at award functions.

Even today Salman is known for being possessive of her. “Ek Tha Tiger” will soon be released on television for which its leading stars were asked to shoot a television promo. Katrina was wearing shorts and that made Salman very protective of her. A source said “Salman was quite wary about the camera angles capturing Katrina. So, he puts his legs in front of Katrina's to guard her. He did this subtly without tampering the concept of the shoot."

However, now after creating her own identity, she does not like being reminded of her start in the industry and refuses to give credit to Salman for being where she is today.

At an award function where Salman Khan was absent, he won an award. Therefore Katrina who was present at the event was asked to accept it on his behalf. To that Katrina politely turned down the request and refused to step up to the stage to accept the award. However, knowing fully well the gravity of the situation, she used her wit to lighten the situation. She said that she was ready to accept it only if she had been paid a percentage of the fee that Salman charges for every film of his.

Ayushmann Khurana of Vicky Donor fame, who was hosting the show and the audiences, did not see this attitude coming from Katrina and were stunned. What made her speak like this is not known, but we only hope that it is not the effect of working with Salman’s rival Shah Rukh Khan.
