Katrina Kaif on Working with Akshay Kumar: He is Still So Focused and Dedicated to His Craft
After a 10-year hiatus, Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar are reuniting for Sooryavanshi. The Rohit Shetty directorial is going to bring the two together in leading roles
Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar first collaborated on the big screen with the 2006 film Humko Deewana Kar Gaye. Their collaboration continued over the course of next three years, in which they gave us films like Namastey London, Welcome, Singh Is Kinng and De Dana Dana. And now, after a long 10 years, they are reuniting and coming back to our screens in Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi. Ever since its inception, the film has created a buzz in the industry and has become one of the most anticipated films of 2019. The film will see Akshay Kumar in the role of a police officer.
Katrina is also happy to be reuniting with Akshay and being on screen with Akshay Kumar. After a long break of not having worked together, it’s only natural that people change in their professional capacities. In a recent interview, the Bharat actress was questioned on whether her equation with Akshay has changed over the years, to which she said, "Not at all. With him, it always feels like going back home. He is a wonderful co-star. Still so focused and dedicated to his craft. He loves his craft and you can see that."
Katrina is currently reaping the success from her latest big screen performance, Bharat and said that with each passing film, the pressure to deliver a better performance increases each time. She also knows that expectations are very high from Rohit Shetty's film."I think we all have the pressure to deliver with every film. Every actor wants and craves for that box office success and acceptance from the audience. But at the same time, we are prepared for hits and misses," the actress said.
This film marks Katrina’s debut in a Rohit Shetty film, while she has worked on several projects with Akshay. Talking about Rohit as a filmmaker, Katrina said, "He is very clear and precise about what he wants. He has an amazing team to support him." Sooryavanshi is all set to hit the screens on March 27, 2020. You can watch the trailer here:
