Catherine also shared that Irrfan Khan’s film The Lunchbox is one of her favourites of all time. “I love the country and the people so very much. I am a big fan of Indian Cinema.” She told ANI, “My children have grown up watching Om Shanti Om on a loop! Not just once. There are so many great movies that I have been able to watch, not as much as I should have but now with streaming and film being crossing so much."

"A movie that I love was The Lunchbox. It was one of my favourite movies and it still is one of my favourite movies of all time. It touched me, it was so well acted, so well directed. It was a story that was so fundamentally Indian but it connected to men and women all over the world. It connected to me as a woman. I watched it on a plane twice! I asked my agent if I could meet him in person and I did and that was really special", she further added.
