Kaif is said to have reached South Africa after completing the Abu Dhabi schedule of her film "Bang Bang" with Hrithik Roshan.

Kaif and Kapoor have previously been spotted together in Spain where the couple were holidaying. Even during the shooting of Kapoor's "Bombay Velvet" in Sri Lanka, Kaif was spotted paying visit to her boyfriend.

But now since both of them star in "JJ," the couple will get a lot of time together.

An earlier report had carried that the "Barfi!" actor had also invited his mother, Neetu Kapoor to join him during his stay in the African country.

But the "Amar Akbar Anthony" actress declined the invitation, preferring to spend time with her husband Rishi Kapoor in Shimla instead, where the veteran actor is presently shooting "All is Well."

"Yes, I will be joining Chintu (Rishi) in Shimla where he's shooting for 'All The Best'. Ranbir had asked me to join him but... I want to spend some time here now than travel abroad," the actress had told DNA.

The report had further hinted that Neetu had taken this move in order to allot some space to her son and his girlfriend Kaif. The daily further quoted a source voicing the same.

"South Africa is a beautiful country and the young couple (Ranbir-Katrina) will have some much-needed time to themselves. Neetu is very fond of Katrina and approves of her son's choice. Katrina seems to be the ideal bahu for the Kapoor household," an insider revealed the daily.

There have been several reports carrying that Neetu has a definite say over son Ranbir's love life. But it appears that the star mother approves of her son's latest choice, Kaif. On a previous occasion too Neetu was clicked having dinner with the couple.

Meanwhile, apart from "JJ," the 31-year-old actor will also be shooting for his another film "Roy" in Johannesburg, which might extend his stay in the country. The film also features Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead.
