New Delhi, Dec 10 (IANS) Having worked with established directors like Vipul Shah, David Dhawan, Anees Bazmee and Subhash Ghai, Bollywood's reigning queen Katrina Kaif says although it is risky to work with new directors, she is open to the idea.

'The first thing that I see before choosing a film is definitely the director. If a new person comes to me with a script and says 'let's go for it', I should be really willing to take risks to agree but I guess that will also happen sometime. Working with new directors is risky,' Katrina told IANS.

The actress justified her stance by narrating how she agreed to her role in recently released 'Yuvvraaj', in which she was cast opposite real-life beau Salman Khan.

'I knew that I was not the protagonist in 'Yuvvraaj', but I wanted to be a part of it since an established director like Subhash Ghai was making it,' she said.

Katrina says most actors admit that the script excites them, but for her, right director is priority.

'If a director who can't pull off a good script comes up to me with a fantastic script and I love it, it is still a meaningless and futile exercise to go ahead with the film. For me, who directs the film is of utmost importance,' Katrina said.

Katrina's forthcoming projects include films with directors like Prakash Jha and Rajkumar Santoshi.
