When it comes to mentoring newcomers, Salman Khan‘s name is the first that crosses our mind. He is more popular for taking up humanitarian causes but not many know that the actor is responsible for giving breaks to in-numerous Bollywood celebs- Sonakshi Sinha, Arjun Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Zareen Khan, Daisy Shah; to name a few. He is known to go all out to promote new talents and reviving careers of many actors. Following his path, ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif has now taken up the responsibility of grooming and mentoring newbies. Her first tutee is supermodel-actress Elena Fernandes, who made her Bollywood debut with Kapoor & Sons. If you’re finding it difficult to recall who are we referring to, we are talking about the beautiful girl who played the agent of Fawad Khan in the film. Still can’t remember ? Here’s a picture –
According to latest reports, Katrina guides Fernandes these days. When asked about her first meeting with Katrina, Elena revealed,“I met Katrina through my personal fitness trainer who is like my best friend. Katrina and I share the common trainer and that is how we became friends. She has been really sweet to me and always helps me with some tips and advice. She is like my mentor.”
When asked to share the tips that Katrina has so far given her, she elaborated, “She asks me to stay focused and not to react to the rumors. She also tells me to be proactive and be hands on with my career. Katrina I feel is hands on with her career too, as she doesn’t just leave it to managers, she personally takes interest and make efforts with directors. Just like me, she too hails from the Great Britain and that’s an added bonus.”
Hmm..cool, isn’t it? Salman seems to be a real good influence on Katrina. Also, she is herself known to be a hands on fitness freak. We remember Parineeti Chopra talking about it in length on Koffee With Karan 5 that how Katrina is their go-to person to take health tips. It’s endearing to see these senior actors mentoring their juniors. What do you have to say on this, Bollywoodlifers ?
