For her birthday this week Katrina Kaif got a surprise she would never forget. While Katrina was shooting with Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol at the Running Of The Bulls festival in the crowded streets of Pamplona in Spain, director Zoya Akhtar shouted in the dictaphone for the shooting to be halted.
Suddenly the noisy festive bustle went quiet and Zoya announced it was Katrina’s birthday. Everyone was ordered to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Katrina.
Recalling the emotional moment with great pleasure Katrina says, “Suddenly there were 500 people Spanish, Indian and every nationality you can imagine, on this main street of Pamplona singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to me. It was an awesome moment and the best birthday gift I’ve ever had. It was very considerate of Zoya to arrange this surprise for me.”
The whose cast was shooting together in Spain for Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara by participating in one of Spain’s biggest festive events, the ‘Encierro’, or ‘Running Of The Bulls’ festival.
Expains a source, “Since Zoya’s film is set in Spain the first thing that came to the team’s mind was a bullfight. But they all thought that was too predictable. So they hit upon the ‘Running Of The Bulls’ festival.
