Mumbai: If you think that Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor are the only suitors of dainty lass Katrina Kaif, think again for the whole of Patiala is vying for Katrina.
Buzz has it that ever since Katrina arrived in Patiala to shoot for Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Meet Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, a lot of local Punjabi boys are lining up at hotel Iqbal Inn, where Katrina is staying, hoping to catch a glimpse of the actress and ask for her hand in marriage.
Apparently, love smitten boys show up at the hotel and call her ‘Jasmeet’, Katrina’s reel name from ‘Namastey London’. At first, Katrina was confused but when she came to know the reality, she found it really funny. Talking to a daily on this amusing incident, Katrina said, “In ‘Namastey London’ I played a girl who comes to Punjab with her parents, looking for a bridegroom. I think these gentlemen take my screen role too seriously. It`s fun as long as the shooting doesn`t get disrupted or I am not intruded upon. These are harmless fans... at least most of them are.”
However, things got a little out of hand when Katrina’s fans began showing up with shaadi ka jodaa and shagun ko tohfa.
And that`s when the security was tightened around the hotel. “We`ve the local administration in Patiala providing us the security. And then we`ve our own security from Mumbai. So I guess it`s safe. Fortunately, the shooting is a little out of Patiala. Shooting in town would`ve been impossible,” said Katrina.
Well, Katrina is not alone as she is being looked after by producer Aditya Chopra and her two co-stars Imran Khan and Ali Zafar. However, Katrina finds the boys, “Very sweet. Knowing that shooting in a place where things can get uncomfortable they keep an eye on me and especially on the people who show up at the shoot and the hotel. Prospective grooms would have to be screened by my two vigilant co-stars.”
With Katrina flooded by marriage proposals, Ranbir might be spending sleepless nights by now!
