Actress Katrina Kaif, who has her roots in England, visited the set of TV show 'Indian Idol Junior' along with her 'Phantom' co-star Saif Ali Khan and reportedly sought stoppage of the shooting in between when she was asked to participate in a Hindi contest. According to a source from the set, Asha Negi, who co-hosts the singing reality show along with Hussain Kuwajerwala, began the episode talking in Hindi and said 'Aaj hum Hindi classes karenge' (Today we will do Hindi classes) and then she looked at Katrina and asked if she was ready for the Hindi class. "We had started rolling the moment Katrina entered the set. Asha and Hussain were introducing one contestant and they usually have a very funny and quirky way of introducing them. Asha was playing a Hindi teacher's role and she happened to ask Katrina if she was ready for the contest. To which Katrina just had to say" the source said. "Instead she requested for a cut and asked for a proper brief as to what she had to say. This isn't all... she requested to be briefed going forward on whatever she had to do. A simple introduction was blown out of proportion and the shoot was stalled for 5-10 minutes" the source added. Katrina and Saif visited the set of the Sony Entertainment Television show on August 16 on the occasion of Saif's 45th birthday. Katrina even sang the birthday song for him.
