Forgetting their favorite soap shows, they were watching this young girl playing and supporting her .. I could almost hear the unspoken words .. “Dont think we are laid back .. Given the chance, we can excel and make you proud ..”

  Well.. I am not talking about Katrina Kaif if you were thinking so .. I am talking about Katrina the Hurricane .. So if you are Salman Khan thinking about calling me and bashing me, you should get a life …
