There was no stopping Salman Khan on Tuesday (February 9) when he visited an engineering college in Pune. Visibly happy, Salman was in full flow cheerfully answering questions ranging from Katrina Kaif to his own marriage some fine day.
Quizzing him was senior journalist Rajat Sharma while Suhel Seth played the judge in a make-shift Aap Ki Adalat set-up. While quite a few interesting questions about Salman’s personal life were asked, the most eye-catching ones were questions relating to his ex-girlfriend Katrina.

Rajat kickstarted his proceedings by asking Salman about Katrina’s well-known acknowledgement about Salman being the person responsible for her rise in life and career. A modest Salman disassociated himself from Katrina’s rise to fame and stressed that Katrina is the most hardworking girl he has ever come across in his life. ‘Katrina Kaif is like a mazdoor (labourer). She works that hard in life,’ remarked Salman. (Read: Katrina Kaif avoids questions on her alleged break up with Ranbir Kapoor)
To this comment, Rajat replied,’ She however thanks you. On the beach she is in pictures with someone else(Ibiza beach pictures with Ranbir) but she reserves her thanks for you, Salman.’
A witty Salman answered, ‘I think that thing has become old now. I think that page has been turned. I feel so…as per the rumours that I have been hearing.’ (PHOTOS: Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt at Auto Expo Noida, see pics)
The crowd burst out laughing at Salman’s frank comment. Rajat, however, was not done yet. The veteran journalist sportingly poked Salman with yet another question. ‘However she is spotted with you a lot these days?’
“Yes. It’s called Fitoor…deewangi…pagalpan. She is doing a film and I was doing Bigg Boss. She had come to my show to promote her film and I was happy to meet her. Then she went to Krishna’s comedy show and I was shooting in the vicinity for Sultan. When I learnt that she is around, I thought I should go and meet her. When I arrived, she was busy giving her shot and I just walked up to her on to the stage. I thought the channel would edit it out. But they didn’t,’ replied Salman.

Well, Katrina has a lot to thank Salman for praising her and promoting her film at a non-filmy event.
