It’s a bit of an intuitive relationship, as I said. Salman is definitely a friend for life. He’s that person who is completely reliable. I trust him implicitly, and I think we have that connection,” the actress stated.
When Katrina opened up on Salman working with Zarine because she looks like her
When Katrina Kaif was asked if Zarine Khan was signed for the Salman Khan film Veer because she looked like Katrina, the actor told Hindustan Times in 2008, "Isn’t that flattering? I think that’s so sweet. I even helped her with her make-up during her screen test. She’s a lovely girl and I hope she does very well… though I don’t think she looks like me. But if Salman misses me and wants to work with girls who look like me, that’s so sweet."
When Katrina confessed that working with Salman in Tiger is fantastic
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Katrina spoke about her upcoming movies with Salman Khan (Tiger 3) and Vijay Sethupathi (Merry Christmas) and said, “I love the kind of thriller stories he (Sriram Raghavan) tells. Working with a phenomenal actor like Vijay Sethupathi, and then Tiger 3. Working again in that franchise that I have so much regards for because Adi (Aditya Chopra, producer) gives Zoya’s role (her character in the movie) that kind of prominence and importance in the action, and I love doing action. Of course, working with Salman again is fantastic.”
When Katrina opened up about Salman mellowing down because of her
Katrina was once asked if she was 'responsible' for Salman Khan getting 'mellowed down'. Responding to the question, she had said that she didn't think that she was responsible for the same. "I don’t think so. If he has mellowed down, that’s wonderful. On occasion, the media can be aggressive and write something hurtful. But at the end of the day, there’s no need to be upset. I’m glad that he’s more comfortable with the media because I think no one is against him," Katrina Kaif had told Hindustan Times.

I said sometime back now that I am single and he's also single but we are friends, we are comfortable with each other and we work together. It's great fun on the sets; everybody's having a good time. I think the funniest thing is people are so wary."
