Tamil was a challenge: Katrina Kaif

During the press conference, Katrina said that working for Sriram Raghavan was on her bucket list and when she heard the story of Merry Christmas, she was in awe. However, shooting the scenes in Tamil was "challenging" for her as it was a completely different language for her.

“That for us was a big challenge. The kind of scenes, the nature of the scenes, and performing those scenes in Tamil is a challenge because obviously, that’s a completely different language for me. But both the films have come out beautifully. I am very proud to be a part of both films. Can’t wait to share it with the audience,” said Katrina Kaif.
