Please leave Salman for me, says ex-flame Katrina Kaif

After a gap of five years, Bollywood’s lovable couple Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are returning to silver screen with their next project ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. The ex-lovebirds showed great camaraderie during a press conference for the upcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA). Alia Bhatt too joined them on stage.

When Alia was asked when she will work with Salman, the actress quipped, "I don''t know but I really hope soon. And I think you should ask him (Salman)."

Considering their age difference, Salman funnily said, "We are trying to remake ''Papa The Great''."

Katrina, who dated the 51-year-old actor, joked, "Please leave Alia for Varun and Salman for me."

Both Salman and Katrina will be performing at IIFA this year.

When asked if it is difficult to work with Salman, Katrina said, "No. With Salman, it is always entertainment and that is the most wonderful thing. It's entertainment around and for you. So, it's like a continuous TV show. He has a lot of love to give so you feel happy and good."

Salman added to his answer, "The humour is always above the belt and not below the belt.. It''s clean."

The IIFA awards will kick-start in New York from July 13 to 15 at MetLife Stadium.
