Mumbai: They may not be as close as they used to be, but Katrina Kaif still cares very deeply for former beau Salman Khan. The actress has decided to give his Ek Tha Tiger top priority.

Given Khan is currently undergoing treatment in America for a nerve disorder, the schedule of the movie may most probably be pushed forward.

But the actress has made it a point to keep her usually choc-o-block diary free for this film, even if it means losing out on other plum assignments.

Katrina confirms, "I will not talk about the roles that I am not doing. But, yes, Ek Tha Tiger is top priority at the moment."
A source, however, reveals that some of the projects she has refused include Ayaan Mukherjee's next with Ranbir and Yash Raj Films' Dhoom 3 with Aamir.

Adds the source, "After much persuasion, Kat was on the verge of saying yes to Ayaan because he was keen to have her in his film.

Also, with Yash Chopra's film with Shah Rukh Khan being pushed forward to next year, she thought she would be able to accommodate Ayaan's film in her schedule."

All this, however, was before she got to know about Salman's health problem.

Now with a certain amount of uncertainty surrounding the next schedule of Ek Tha Tiger in Ireland, Katrina has decided to decline all new offers and keep her dates open for the film to shoot as and when Salman is fit and ready.

Anything for Sallu

"At this juncture, nothing is more important for Katrina than Salman's full recovery.

 Even promoting her next release Mere Brother Ki Dulhan with a smile is proving a bit of a burden, as she is no mood to be funny, clever and mischievous as these promotional events require her to be," says the source.
