Katrina, 31, who has given many successful films including 'Dhoom 3', 'Ek Tha Tiger', 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' and 'Raajneeti', said box-office numbers do matter to her.
"Box office success does matter to me. Everyone wants their films to do well. Because you have worked hard. As an actress one craves for that acceptance. I am super fortunate that I have not seen the other side.
"My films mostly have done well at the box office and I have a lot of gratitude and happiness. I just hope that continues with my next film too. When your film doesn't do well after so much of hardwork there is a heartbreak and it's not a good feeling," Katrina said.
Often touted as the number one actress in the industry, Katrina says she considers herself lucky that the audience have accepted her. "Acceptance from the viewers is very important for me.
Our viewers are very fair and also forgiving. They are very kind. They love you because of your good work. But they don't look out for detailed flaws. They are happy to accept the good," she said.
The British-descent actress is all geared up for her next action-thriller 'Bang Bang', which is hitting theatres on October 2.
The film will see Katrina reunite with her 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' co-star Hrithik Roshan. "I have been lucky that people have liked the chemistry with most of my co-actors. In a way the audience have liked two individual human beings together. I am happy that people are appreciating my chemistry with Hrithik," she said.
The actress says that 'Bang Bang' was an unpredictable journey for the film's crew because they had suffered many roadblocks during the shooting.
"Many times I felt while shooting for the film it is destined to be a hard journey. I got used to it. In Kashmir the terrorist attack happened and the shooting got delayed.
Then I was in Spain and I was catching a flight to Prague, I got a call from my manager that Hrithik's brain surgery will happen.
"The unit was already in Prague. Then we had a storm in Thailand. I also had an injury but I don't want to talk about that but for me it was a big one. Everyone in their own way had difficulties and challenges on a high level," she said.
