Kolkata, India, September 02, 2016 (Washington Bangla Radio): Bollywood’s newest onscreen pair Siddharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif is leaving no stone unturned to promote their film Baar Baar Dekho. The two actors along with director Nitya Mehra recently landed in Kolkata for the film’s promotion.

Siddharth Malhotra announced at the very beginning of the press meet that Kolkata is the first city where debutant director Nitya Mehra has appeared for the film’s promotion.

When asked about the controversy about the Bra scene which was reported by a national daily a few days back, director Nita Mehra said, “The bra scene which was mentioned by the national daily never existed in our movie. So there is no question of the censor board insisting for a cut. The film is a very clean film and we are very happy to get an U/A rating from the censor board. We absolutely have no conflict with the board.”

When Katrina was asked how she presented on screen such a fit body, quickly came the reply, “The body I sport in the film is the result of long hard hours spent in workouts and training sessions. I was also very careful about my diet regiment.”

About her expectations from the film Katrina said, “My expectations are very positive from the film. The story is very unique. The audience already likes the onscreen chemistry between me and Siddharth. Moreover I have been able to give my cent percent to this film which did not happen to a couple of my films released before this one. I am sure the audience will like the film.”

About the different age and looks they sport in different phase of the film, Siddharth said, “We took the help of prosthetics, gained weight and went for different make up to sport different age and look. Getting into the look is no big deal but to act different age is really a challenge.”

About the experience of working with Katrina for the first time Siddharth said, “ I have a huge crush on Katrina since I was a teenager. So I went through many awkward moments  during the shoot and I kept staring at her for no reason at all. It was a wonderful experience to work someone as beautiful as Katrina.”


After wooing the audience of Jaipur with a flash mob dance at one of the city’s metro stations, Katrina and Siddharth decided to pose at one of Kolkata’s heritage trams. They were spotted dancing and posing on the tram churning out a treat for the shutterbugs and fans present
