Apart from guiding me, Salman had confidence in me: Katrina Kaif
Mumbai: The most sought after actress of Bollywood, Katrina Kaif has confessed that if there is one person who is responsible for her success and who has helped her in every possible way to make her mark in the tinsel town, it is Salman Khan. He always backed her in all the decisions she made and even for her role in the much-awaited ‘Raajneeti’, where she plays a very powerful character. The much-awaited film has been set against the backdrop of Indian politics.
Speaking to a news daily, Katrina said, "Apart from guiding me, Salman had confidence in me. He is not the person to say that because he is friendly with you. He will say it genuinely.”
The buxom beauty also added that her foray into the Indian film industry was destined, however, she acknowledged the support of all those who were responsible for the success that she achieved in Bollywood so far. She said there are many people to thank for her soaring career here.
"There are too many people whom I can call my godfather. I am grateful and indebted to them. Even Akshay Kumar took a risk in working with me initially," she said.
"He did not know me at all. He was at crossroads of his career. When he did `Namastey London`, people thought he had gone insane. Nobody is going to damage or destroy himself to help somebody else. Salman and Akshay believed in me and that is my good fortune and destiny," she added further.
Katrina also said the fact that her earlier films did well at the box office was a "miracle".
"Had those films failed, nobody could have done anything for me. I don`t think I would have got a second chance if the movies bombed," she said.
