Katrina Kaif gained success in Bollywood only because of her then superstar boyfriend Salman Khan. Salman is often referred to as the Godfather in the industry, as he has helped many newcomers to get their first Bollywood break and so did he help Kats. But, Katrina doesn't hold Salman solely responsible for her success.
Talking to a leading daily, when the actress was enquired how much she would credit Salman for her success, Katrina said that he is not solely responsible for her successful career. She said that she had worked very hard for this day and also destiny plays a very important role for her success.
Talking further about her filmy career, Katrina said that she had learnt a lot of things from her co-star Akshay Kumar. She feels that Akshay has played a very important role in her life and had instilled confidence in her. Katrina has worked with Akshay in films like Welcome, De Dhana Dhan, Tees Maar Khan and Namastey London. It looks like Akshay is equally important like Sallu for Katrina's successful Bollywood career.
