Katrina was required to fly to
Bangalore for an event with her Raajneeti co-star Ranbir Kapoor,

was carrying until he looked into his rear view mirror.

driver was late because he got caught in a traffic snarl," said Katrina,
"If I had waited any more, I would've missed my flight. So I

there are no cops around is just not done. But she refuses to believe
anyone would harm her," a close friend said.
The British actress
lives on her own here and her latest adventure-ride to the airport on
her own has left her family far from amused.
Her youngest sister
Isabel, who has been studying cinema in the US, may cut short her
acting course to join Katrina in Mumbai.
