Mumbai: Throughout the six years of her turbulent relationship with Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif might have kept mum on the nature of their romance, but after her beau made their break-up public, the actress had to face a series of brunt questions at a press conference that left her in tears. Organised to promote a new brand that Katrina will now endorse, the press meet turned into an attack on Katrina’s personal life as reporters constantly darted her with all sorts of personal questions.
Even though the actress initially held her head high and managed to answer a few rude questions with a smile, she broke down after the media started to take jibes at her. And going by Salman’s strong and loyal fan base, it was no surprise that Katrina was held responsible for breaking the actor’s heart.
However, as the attack got too personal, Katrina walked out of the conference stating, “If Salman says we’ve split, it must be true.”
Speaking to a news daily, a close friend of the actress said, “Katrina is a strong girl and not prone to public display of emotion. But on Tuesday night, she broke down and wept after the event, wondering why she was being subjected to questions on something that Salman had said.”
Elaborating on why Katrina is so angry, her friend added, “Firstly, it was unfair of Salman to speak about their so-called split; they had decided between themselves that they would never talk in public about what transpired between them. Katrina has been hurting ever since Salman made the remark that he is now single. Katrina, on the other hand, shares a very personal relationship with Salman’s family and she would never put it up for public scrutiny.”
When asked about the events at the press conference on Tuesday evening, Katrina admitted that it shook her up, as she said, “What happened was very, very disturbing. I had the entire congregation of media persons questioning me about a statement made by Salman.
If for all these years I haven’t spoken about the relationship, why should I do so now? I won’t be bullied into talking about my personal life. I am going to take contractual action to ensure limits are not crossed at these events.”
As of now, the actress has decided to add a few amendments to her contract that will ensure that she is asked questions only related to the brand she has been roped in to endorse.
