The actor further went on to say, "Both of us are sure about our relationship and if we don't open about it now, it would be showing disrespect to the relationship. I am 33 now and it is time I have my family. Even Katrina wants that. I have grown up in a family where film is everything. So, I know the importance of gossip and my funda is simple. When there is gossip, try not to react and it is advisable not to think too much about yourself."
The couple came close while filming 2009 hit film 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani', their first movie together. They later starred together in Prakash Jha's 'Raajneeti' (2010). The duo will be next seen in "Jagga Jasoos", slated to release next year.
