What Mario Said:
The celebrity photographer said, “I loved working with Katrina. This was my first shoot with a Bollywood star.”
“I think men and women feel a sense of freedom because there is no predominated manner in which a towel should be put on. You can wear it however you want,” Mario contends. He first met Kat at a party in Mumbai this January and the duo instantly hit it off.
Mario says it was a treat to click Kat. “For the first time, I regretted the fact that series didn’t allow much scope for movement; I would have loved to capture her amazing dancing skills. I wish to shoot a towel video with her soon. Spending time with Katrina was great and the pictures look fantastic.”
