Katrina Kaif has learned her lessons
From her break-up with Salman Khan to her link-up with Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif's personal life is constantly under the scanner. The British-born actress says the unrelenting attention does affect her sometimes but she has learnt to deal with pressure.
"We are human beings and sometimes it does affect us, especially when so much is being said and written that doesn't make sense. But one learns and I have also learnt to cope with it," Kaif said.
"I have learnt that media and celebrities go hand in hand and now I don't feel the need to clarify my stance and I am not bothered. Audiences have also become mature and they also understand what is right and what is wrong," added the 26-year-old actress.
This year, Kaif's first release will be in June with Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, also starring Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol and Farhan Akhtar, followed by Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.
Asked whether she is a director's actor, Kaif said: "Every actor is a director's actor. It's the director who helps the actor in bringing the character alive on screen and then there is the script to support. It is part and parcel of the profession."
So does Kaif fear failure?
"Fear is something that drives you to do good work and it is important for a person to maintain a positive attitude and keep on doing good work," she said.
With films, endorsements, performances and media appearances crowding her to-do-list, the actress admits she sometimes finds it difficult to cope with the hectic work life.
"Sometimes it becomes difficult to stay calm, cool; and with a busy schedule I do get tired, but it's part of our job. I keep doing things that help me to relax. I do things that rejuvenate me, things that give me extra help," she said.
