Katrina is a stupendous actor: Shah Rukh

Shah Rukh Khan has high hopes from the young players in his IPL team this season

Even though Shah Rukh Khan is busy with his Yash Chopra film co-starring Katrina Kaif, he will take time off to boost the spirits of his IPL team. Says the actor,

I am shooting currently, but when I get eight to 10 days free, I will fly down to Kolkata to watch the matches.

Hopefully, I will complete the film by July and take a couple of months off. Only then will I decide what to do next.

adds Shah Rukh, squashing reports saying that he will start Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express this year.

I have been reading these reports, but I have not decided when I will start shooting.

On another note, the actor is all praise for Katrina.

I do a few films every year, and when I work with young actors, I learn a lot as they have a different way of doing scenes. Katrina is a stupendous actor. She approaches every scene differently, and as a co-star I have to adapt differently. That give and take has been absolutely fantastic.

says SRK, adding that Anushka Sharma will soon join them in the film’s next schedule.

Coming back to the IPL, Khan is confident about the performance of his team this season. Does he have any strategies up his sleeve?

I don’t strategise…I am just an owner and support the team. We have some wonderful minds this time and they have been working very hard. I am glad that the younger boys have been doing very well. I have always been a big believer that if we have young guys doing well consistently, our team will stand to gain a lot. So hopefully it will happen this year, because most of our star players are doing well.

he says.
