Recently, Shah Rukh Khan hosted a press conference to unveil the video of ‘Saans’, the new song from his upcoming Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The song features him and Katrina Kaif, but since Kat is currently in Chicago shooting for Dhoom 3, she connected to the conference via Skype. They spoke about the song, fielded questions from the media (Katrina named the three things she learned from SRK), and generally just goofed off quite a lot. Check out some exclusive pictures and videos, just for you!

After unveiling the song, Shah Rukh dialed Katrina and the two kicked things off. SRK volunteered to tell the story about how brave Katrina was to tolerate the cold weather, and then told her that she must respond by praising him in return. To this, Kat told a funny story about how she kept falling on SRK while shooting a simple scene in the song, and he was very patient about it – though SRK maintains that she can continue falling on him as long as she wants; he’ll have no problem at all.

Katrina also spoke extensively about what it was like to work with Yash Chopra, and how she had always wanted to do so after she had watched Veer Zaara. She went on to say that she wished he wouldn’t retire, because he always made her feel comfortable on sets, even realizing when she needed her space – something even people close to her may not have been able to realize.

Kat also spoke about the three things she learned from Shah Rukh. Firstly, she said, he taught her to keep her chin down and look up, resulting in quite the effect (I’m sure a few boys in the crowd ate their heart out at that point). Secondly, she claims he kept yelling at her to stand up straight; and thirdly, to maintain eye contact, because she had a tendency to look everywhere but at him.

The cutest thing was when Katrina randomly started doodling while the press conference was going on. SRK was answering a question, and Katrina had her head down the entire time, which made SRK ask her if she had fallen asleep (considering she had been up all night shooting). Kat said she hadn’t, and was just making a little drawing of SRK singing Challa.

After seeing it, Shah Rukh told her he’d take one more question and in that time she had to figure out a way to draw herself into it. She did, and this was the end result…

…which, of course, prompted SRK to comment on what a figure she’s given herself. ;)

All in all, it was a fun event – Shah Rukh is, as always, at his wittiest best, and I think Katrina was too tired to be able to be all diplomatic, so she was a ton of fun as well! I liked the song as well; it has a very old-school romance vibe to it. Do you agree?
