Katrina has just returned from the shooting of Singh Is Kinng in Egypt. And she cannot stop talking about the place. Kat enthuses, "Egypt is a beautiful and we shot in many places Luxor, which has many old temples, the pyramids etc. The people are more reserved than the people here. We would have to shoot at 4 am every day to capture the light, and it was scorching hot. To keep cool we would stay in shades. We would sip chilled glasses of fruit juices or mint tea or iced hibiscus tea (or karkady) which kept us energised and refreshed."
The highlight of Kat's cruise was dinner on a boat on the Nile. The actress says, "I didn't have time to visit an Egyptian flea market but I went for dinner on a stationary cruise boat. Egyptians are very much into barbecues, kebabs and kofta basically non-vegetarian food like lamb and chicken. It's very similar to Arabic food. Bread accompanies every meal and there are many types of breads in different regions, the most common being aysh an unleavened circle of coarse dough and various kinds of sweet cakes and pastries."
While her closeness to Akshay Kumar was caught in pictures at the IPL match, the actress says dismissively, "Akshay and I are very good friends but we are both grown up and mature enough to know we are in a public place , so we know how to conduct ourselves and not do anything foolish." Ask her about her beau Sallu's show 10 Ka Dum. She says, "I don't have anything to comment on that."
