“Ek meri photo bahar leke aa gaye and they only gave their opinion ki oh the girl who’s starring in Veer looks like Katrina, which they even did previously with another actress which was launched by Salman only. So people without putting their brains or whatever, so accha accha wo uski tarah thi abhi yeh.”
