Disheartened with Yashji’s retirement: Katrina Kaif

Actress Katrina Kaif, who is directed by Yash Chopra for the first time her the film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’, is disheartened that the filmmaker has announced his retirement.

I think he shouldn’t have retired. It is sad that he has announced his retirement.He is a legend and I don’t think anyone can match him. I feel I am honoured to be part of his last film. He is an amazing person. He has a great sense of emotion and passion for cinema. It was great working with him.

she said.

The actress is working with the king of Romance Shahrukh Khan and Yash Chopra, explaining her experience, she says,

Everyone from Shah Rukh to Aditya Chopra tried to explain to me about how to get it right. But it was Yashji who understood that I was nervous and hence couldn’t get it right. So he started cracking jokes, since he understood what I was going through. That was an amazing moment. He is a very sharp person.

Katrina says that she has always been a Yash Chopra fan and wanted to work with him badly,

I was aspiring to do a film with him and it eventually happened. I am happy and honoured. I was initially intimidated by him. I had to find a way to connect with him as an actor. Once that awkwardness was gone, I felt he is very caring. He gave me certain tips for a romantic film, like I should look into the eyes whenever we were together for a scene.
