Katrina Kaif, Aditya Roy Kapur and Tabu's film "Fitoor" was released on Friday, Feb. 12. Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, the romantic drama has received mixed reviews from critics, but has impressed Bollywood celebrities.
The movie revolves around a poor boy and rich girl, which features Kapur and Kaif opposite each other on celluloid for the very first time. Kapur plays the role of Kashmiri lad Noor who falls in love with Kaif's character Firdaus.
