Salman has been an important part of my life, Katrina Kaif

At India Today Conclave, Katrina Kaif opens her heart about the most talked about issue of her life, Salman Khan, her current boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, his family about her mother, who dedicated her life to social work.

Speaking at the India Today Conclave 2015, the Bollywood actor flooded with ample personal questions by veteran TV host Karan Thapar. "I don't like people talking bad about me, I get hurt so precisely I don't end up saying that for others," the actor said.

Speaking about her mom Suzanne, Katrina said that she is an incredible woman, who has devoted her life to NGO work. She is a selfless angel. The diva also spoke about her only brother, “He looked tough initially but I have seen him transform into a gentle man. He will make a good partner”, quips Kat.

When she was asked why she chose Katrina Kaif as her name, she replied, “When I came to India I saw the openness of the people in Mumbai. I felt at home, I didn't come to be an actor but (to be a) model. As a model, I was very fortunate and achieved quite quickly. I didn't know Hindi at 17 when I was doing Boom. I had no experience at all. Jackie Shroff gave me a piece of advice: You must learn to read the Devnagari script. I took his advice and now all my scripts come in Devnagari”.

Speaking about Salman, Katrina said that Salman and his family was a great support for her personally and professionally, “There are many definitions with the relationship we share. I don't like to really share publicly or give labels to the relationship I share with him. Salman has been an important part of my life, not only in films but his family, his sisters. Till today, we are good friends. He is just an amazing person. He is unique, you don't meet many people like Salman. He will always remain an important part of my life. If you ever come across him, don't  be afraid of striking a conversation, he interacts really well -  be it a fan or who approaches him, he engages well with them”, she quipped.

Speaking about the most important woman of her partner’s life Neetu Kapoor, Katrina Kaif said, “The reason and person responsible would be me. Because since the last 8 years, I have chosen not to comment on my personal life, be it about the man in my life. I am a sensitive person, she is a beautiful stunning lady, somebody whom I have great admiration for. As a woman, she is a fantastic person. Ranbir's family is lovely, even his father is a darling”.
