Katrina Kaif says Amitabh Bachchan has been the greatest influence on her
brief career in Bollywood but the one star she longs to work with is Hrithik
I get tired and Amitji is still full of energy and still standing on the
sets. Its amazing to see that kind of dedication and professionalism. And he
looks much less than his age, Katrina said on the sidelines of a function
where she launched Kodaks latest digital offering, the EasyShar V570.
As for her mantra for a healthy life, she said: Exercise, eat well.
Youve got to be careful about what you eat because Indian food tends to be
way too oily. Try to eat more healthy food - more vegetables, more fish.
I like Japanese food because its very healthy, its delicious - I like that
kind of taste - not too much spice and at the same time, theres no oil,
theres no fat.
The other thing is getting up early, not oversleeping, going to the gym,
going to work on time.
Katrina gushed about her experience of working with Akshay.
He is great with newcomers. He makes you feel comfortable and thats
important because it creates a great environment for working, where the
actors feel free and thats what I really felt in this film, she maintained.
