Bollywood star Katrina Kaif has opened up about her relationship with Salman Khan and his family.

Kaif was previously romantically linked to the Bigg Boss host. Although that relationship ended rather dramatically, the actress remains close to the 48-year-old veteran.

During an interview with Hindustan Times, the glamorous Hong Kong-born actress who is a British national, revealed that Khan is a very supportive person.

"These reports of me calling him for help etc., aren't true. I don't call him every second day or every time there is a problem. But if I was ever in trouble or if I ever needed help from someone, I believe he is the kind of person, who would help a friend or anyone who has been close to him. And I believe that he would help me," she said.

The Bang Bang actress revealed that though their relationship is over, she is close to Khan's sister.

"I am in touch with Alvira (Salman's sister). She has been like a sister to me. We had a very deep connection, and that [equation] still remains. That's why, I am in touch with her on a regular basis. She is someone who will always be dear to me," Kaif said.

Kaif is currently dating Ranbir Kapoor and had previously admitted that he is a special person in her life.
