Amitabh, who has been honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award by QG Man, is amazed by the speed at which Katrina is climbing the ladders. He describes his rapport and encounter with Katrina on his blog.
“Katrina stabs a 'hey its me" finger punch on my shoulder and we recollect old times. The time of her very first film Boom and how as a shy reticent girl she had been bullied by the director not to ever look into the monitor. She was new and uncertain like most of us, but was keen to see what she looked like on screen. I thought it was a most natural and common desire and one that should have been allowed by the director, but when he did not express its possibility to the rest of the cast, I had dragged her to the monitor and given her the first look of what she looked like, to her. To her credit she still remembers that moment," he wrote.
Amitabh also shares the time he has with Katrina during the shooting of Sarkar. “Later as the film shoot in Dubai came to an end, I had invited all cast and crew to tour the city at night and to perhaps have a bite somewhere. I recollect the embarrassment she and all of us faced when she was stopped from going inside a club, because the man in charge of the door thought her to be underage. And now from a small insignificant part in Sarkar to the most Googled and popular star in the firmament, Ms Kaif has come such a long way in such a short time," he wrote.
Interestingly, Salman Khan's ex flame Aishwarya Bachchan is married to Amitabh's son Abhishek. And Katrina is currently seeing Salman. So, it's so wise of Amitabh to praise the girlfriend of his bahu's ex boyfriend.
