Katrina Kaif opened up in a frank discussion about her former lover, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, and her current lover and live-in partner Ranbir Kapoor. The actress was speaking at the India Today Conclave 2015 in New Delhi with host Karan Thapar. She also revealed that she has “no animosity” whatsoever with Ranbir’s ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone, without naming her. This question was even more important, as recently Ranbir’s mother, actress Neetu Singh Kapoor had shared a picture of Ranbir and Deepika from their movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

There were also rumours that after their live-in arrangement, Ranbir and Katrina are now married. It was denied by both parties.
At the Conclave, reports India Today, Katrina talked about her mentor and boyfriend of her early Bollywood years, Salman Khan. She said, “There are many definitions with (to) 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.”

Katrina apparently did not speak much about her current lover Ranbir Kapoor but more about his mother. She simply said, “He (Ranbir) is a supremely talented actor, naturally gifted. Both Salman and Ranbir are different as they have very different techniques and approaches are different.”
About Neetu Kapoor, possibly her to-be mother-in-law, she said, “The reason and person responsible would be me. Because since the last eight 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.”
We once spoke about how Deepika Padukone has forgiven Katrina Kaif for stealing Ranbir Kapoor from her and wished her on her birthday. It seems Katrina wants to also make peace with her now. She said about Deepika, “I am not going to speak on my personal life but with regard to Deepika, there is no animosity between me and anyone.”
We’re glad Bollywood’s most favourite firang babe has finally shared some lesser known things from her life! Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh is also part of the guests at the India Today Conclave 2015. Watch this space for more on that.
