Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, who is all set to make a splash in her upcoming flim Raajneeti, says her mentor-turned-boyfriend Salman Khan was always sure of her doing well and making a mark for herself in the tinsel town.
"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," said Katrina.
The 25-year-old actress feels that it was her destiny that she came into the Hindi film industry and succeeded. She has 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 said.
Katrina says the fact that her earlier films did well at the box office was a "miracle", helping her weave the success story. "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.
