Bollywood diva Kartina Kaif considers her ex-boyfriend Salman Khan's advice as invaluable.

Speaking about Salman in an interview with Screen's Editor Priyanka Sinha Jha, Katrina said, "I can't speak for other people but at the end of the day, your work has to credit you and it has to take you forward, but personally do I think Salman's advice has been important? Yes, I think it's been invaluable."

"He's had a very strong basic sense of the working of the film industry, so that's helpful. But it's quite similar to Anushka Sharma and all other YRF protégés having Adi (Aditya Chopra) advise them. In my case having Salman and his circle to give me advice was definitely very useful and very important," she added.

Katrina was introduced to B-town by Salman Khan and the duo was even rumoured to be dating each other.

Later, it was reported that the duo broke up and Katrina is said to be dating her "Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani" co-star Ranbir Kapoor and Salman has been linked to Romanian actress and television anchor Lulia Vantur.

Even after their break up, they were paired opposite each other in one of the biggest hits of 2012- "Ek Tha Tiger". Despite the split, the duo is said to be sharing a very cordial relationship.

During the interview, Katrina also attributed her success to her destiny. "I think it's a lot about your destiny. I am a religious person and I think God does have a plan for you, but beyond that it is about how driven you are. I am very driven. Ek Tha Tiger with Salman (Khan) and me was a huge success even though everyone was saying it wouldn't work, Yashji's film was also a dream. It was very important for me to be a part of a Yash Chopra film, but I still feel that there's something that needs to be done."

Katrina is currently shooting for Aamir Khan starrer "Dhoom 3" which is set for release in December this year. She also has in her kitty another project with Hrithik Roshan that has been titled, "Bang Bang'.
