Katrina Kaif is going through a rough phase both personally and professionally in her life. But the one person who was, is and would always be there for her is none other than her ex-boyfriend Salman Khan. Recently, a source told Open Magazine that Salman Khan wants to revive Katrina's career and hence signed her for Tiger Zindaa Hai.
On a personal level also, he is taking care of the actress and this way he is giving an indirect message to Ranbir Kapoor that Kat is not alone. "Right now she's going through a rough patch both personally and professionally. A film opposite Salman Khan puts her back in the reckoning as far as her career is concerned. It's also a fairly clear message to Ranbir Kapoor that Bhai has her back. Don't think she's got no one in her corner," the source said.
We all know that Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif were dating once but unlike other Bollywood couples they chose to remain good friends even after their break-up.
After dating Salman Khan for years, Katrina Kaif was in a relationship with Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor, whom she met on the sets of their movie, Ajab Prem Ki Gazhab Kahani.
It is said that Katrina Kaif met Salman Khan a day before her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir-Katrina are not on talking terms after their split.
A True Friend
Just like a true friend Salman Khan supported Katrina Kaif in every possible way. He also told his family members to take care of Katrina during her difficult phase.
Salman Never Liked Ranbir
It is said that Salman Khan never liked Ranbir Kapoor and had warned Katrina Kaif about his flirty nature. Reportedly, the actor was not at all happy that Katrina left him for Ranbir.
Tiger Zinda Hai
On the work front Katrina Kaif would be seen in Salman Khan's next film Tiger Zinda Hai, which is the sequel of Ek Tha Tiger.
Salman's Helping Nature
If rumours are to be believed, it was Salman Khan who told the makers to sign his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif for the movie Tiger Zinda Hai.
Katrina Kaif desperately needed a big film with a superstar to revive her career after giving three flop films, Phantom, Fitoor and Baar Baar Dekho.
Another report in the Filmfare magazine stated that Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan are bonding big time these days, ''Post her break up with Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif is once again spending quality time with ex beau Salman Khan. This comes in straight after the announcement of their next venture together, Tiger Zinda Hai (YRF's sequel to Ek Tha Tiger being helmed by Ali Abbas Zaffar)''
Salman Khan was also very concerned about Katrina Kaif during her breakup with Ranbir and kept asking after her from her managers and looking her up.
Well, salman Khan is indeed a true friend and Katrina Kaif is blessed to have him!
