She may have been more than just 'good friends' with Salman Khan but Katrina Kaif doesn't deny that she shares good friendship with Akshay Kumar too. In a chat show with Farhan Akhtar, she admitted that Akshay is a good friend of hers as well.

"People think that I and Akshay are good friends. Yes, it is easy working together when it comes to Akshay but then our friendship is not the kind that I could have with my childhood or college friends", said Katrina when asked about her friends. In fact she went on to add that best friend is in fact her Manager. She admitted though that Akshay has a great role to play in her successful Bollywood stint, especially when it comes to dedication.

"I have learnt dedication towards work from my co-star Akshay Kumar", says Katrina, "If you have good talent but take it for granted, then it fails for you. However, if you have less talent but work hard towards it then you get what you want. Someone like Akshay has a good combination of both talent which he hones further by working hard on it."

Over the years gone by, her success ratio has been phenomenal with only Boom and Yuvraaj failing at the box office. So, does she choose a script or a director? When asked this question, Katrina replied, "There should be one strong point at least when a film if offered to me. No, it isn't like I am a lucky mascot or anything but I believe in praying and hoping. I believe and pray that if you genuinely ask something it is granted."

She goes on to add, "I don't have enough knowledge of films but I think that a film has to have some quality control at the least. If a director is new then at the least he should have a good and strong script. On the other hand, if a director is experienced that even a new actor with a good script can work."
