Bollywood star Katrina Kaif has opened up about her alleged relationship with Ranbir Kapoor.

During an interview with Hindustan Times, the glamorous Hong Kong-born actress who is a British national, revealed that Kapoor is a special person in her life.

"If you ask me generally about Ranbir, I would — rather than commenting on our day-to-day activities — say that he is an extremely important person in my life. I have a lot of regard for him. He is an amazing person, and an amazing actor. That's the best way I can put it. And I feel everyone — to a large extent — is aware of his presence in my life," she said.

When asked when will the pair tie the knot, she said: "Marriage is a serious decision, and there can be a lot of changes in your life that have to be factored in to make your marriage successful. So, it's something you should approach with a lot of maturity, thought and love. When, and if, that happens, it won't be hidden. "

Kaif and Kapoor who have starred together in the films Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009; The Unique Story of a Strange Love) and Rajneeti (2010; a political thriller) have tried to keep their romantic relationship under wraps but photographs of the Bang Bang star holidaying with the 31-year-old on the island of Ibiza leaked online, sparking rumours that the two stars were dating.

Kaif was previously linked to Salman Khan. Although that relationship ended rather dramatically, the actress remains close to the 48-year-old veteran.

Meanwhile, Kapoor dated his Bachna Ae Haseeno and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani co-star Deepika Padukone from 2007 to 2009.
