Katrina Kaif's last movie, Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), earned more than Rs224 crore in its domestic business. The actress will next be seen in Aanand L Rai's Zero, also starring Shah Rukh Khan and set to be released later this year. Reportedly, Katrina will aslo be teamming up with Varun Dhawan for the first time in ABCD 3.

During an interview with Hindustan Times, a daily, Katrina touched upon various topics including, working with Dhawan, her thoughts on the three Khans of Hindi cinema with whom she has worked on various films, her sister Isabelle's debut, and more.

When asked what she thinks about working with Dhawan, she said, “I am really excited to work in that film, because it is important for me. With regard to Varun, I have known him for a very long time and he is delightful. He is a very genuine, hard-working and positive person. It’s going to be really fun. Karan [Johar] was telling me the other day that Varun is going to be bouncing off the wall, so I have to calm him down. The film is in a great space and a fun opportunity for both of us.”  

The actress has largely found success working with the three Khans of Hindi cinema — Salman, Aamir and Shah Rukh. The lady feels that working with them has only helped her get better.

“I consider myself really fortunate and find it incredible that I am working with people who are on top of their game. They can only help me become better. You don’t last for 25-30 years [in the industry] without being damn good at your job. Being that passionate is no joke. Plus, the actor who you are working with is very important, as you are creating something together. I am here to do exactly that; to try and better myself and also surround myself with those who are the best in their field,” she said.

Further, Katrina believes that her sister, Isabelle, is better prepared to make her debut. The film, Time To Dance, also starring Sooraj Pancholi, will be helmed by first-time director Stanley D'Costa and produced by T-Series.

“It’s great that she comes with a huge amount of formal training, as she has spent four years at Lee Strasberg [Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, New York City]. I am very happy about it as she is coming in prepared,” added Katrina.
