Sidharth Malhotra is all praise for his object of on-screen love interest Katrina Kaif with whom he will be romancing in ‘Baar Baar Dekho’.
Working with a more experienced co-star gave him a chance to observe and learn, he said.
“Katrina is hardworking. One positive quality that I learnt from her is that she doesn’t take her position for granted. Or experience for that matter. Even if she has done 50 hit dance numbers, for every new number she will rehearse as if it’s her first song. She gives her 100 percent.”
While this is the first time Sidharth has paired up with Katrina, the actor says there was no discomfort in breaking the ice with her.
In fact, to make them more familiar with each other, director Nitya Mehra organised workshops.
“When acting in love stories, it’s important to know your co-actor because you are pretending to fall in love and in this story we are pretending to be in love since we were eight. You needed to have that familiarity. So we did workshops before the shoot.”
And a novel assignment awaited the actors at the workshop. “I had to sit in front of Katrina and stare into her eyes for 15 minutes,” revealed Sidharth.
“She did blink first,” said Sidharth. – CINEWS
