Katrina finally reacts to rumours of her character in ‘Zero’ being inspired from her break-up with Ranbir
Aanand L Rai‘s ‘Zero’ brought the ‘Jab Tak Jaan Hai’ trio- Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma back together. The film that released last week received a mixed response from the critics as well as the audience. However, everyone unanimously praised Katrina Kaif’s terrific performance in the film. This is the first time that the actress’ acting chops were being discussed instead of praising her beauty or her out of the world dancing skills.
In the film, Katrina is playing a leading superstar Babita Kumari who struggles with handling fame and heartbreak. Before the release of the film, rumours were doing the rounds that Babita Kumari’s journey in the is somewhat inspired from Katrina Kaif’s break-up with Ranbir Kapoor (though they never officially said that they were dating).
In a recent interview with Film Companion, the actress finally reacting to all these speculations said, “I knew that people are going to try and connect the dots but I also knew that when they see the film they can’t do that because the pitch of that character is so different. The pitch of that character is not me. That’s not my behaviour.”
Talking about her character, Katrina went on to add that personally the way Babita behaves or talks in the film is very outlandish.

In ‘Zero’ handsome hunk Abhay Deol is playing the role of Babita Kumari’s estranged lover. Interestingly Abhay’s characters’ name in the film is Aditya Kapoor, which again made people think that it was done purposely to draw a parallel between Katrina’s reel as well as real life.
However, with the actress finally responding to these rumours now, all the speculations can be put to rest.
