Critical and Commercial success important : Bebo

Kareena Kapoor, who won the Most Profitable Actress Award feels that both commercial and critical success are important. She was bestowed with the honour recently at the ETC Bollywood Business Awards, purely on the basis of box office collections.

In 2011 , she had two films grossing over 100 crores . Salman Khan starrer Bodyguard and SRK’s Ra.One. “Receiving an award wherein you are being adjudged considering the economic quotient as a cornerstone for mapping the success gives you a sense of pride. I have always maintained that commercial success is as important as the critical success of a movie,” Kareena said in a statement.

“A commercially successful movie pays evidence to the fact that viewers loved watching your movie. I thank everyone for appreciating and recognising my work,” she said.

Kareena is the only B-town actress to star in four films that have grossed over Rs 100 crore at the domestic box office in less than two years. She has delivered four of the top ten grossing films of all time- starting with 3 Idiots which earned Rs 170crore locally, Golmaal 3 mopping up Rs 108 crore, followed by Rs 141 crore grossing Bodyguard, and Ra.One.

Playing pregnant woman was cakewalk for Vidya

If she effortlessly essayed the role of a sex symbol in The Dirty Picture, it was a cakewalk to play a pregnant woman in search of her husband in Kahaani, says Vidya Balan. “It was not tough at all. During our college life, we all friends used to do all the nautankis and these stand-up items . And my favourite role would always be of a pregnant woman. So the walk and all came to me very naturally,” Vidya, 33, told reporters here.

Vidya ruled Bollywood as Silk last year and it seems she wants to take it forward with Kahaani as she is aggressively promoting the movie. If she dressed like her character for the promotion of  The Dirty Picture, the actor appeared with a baby bump at the Kahaani promotional event.

Kahaani, scheduled to release March 9, is not the first film to feature her as a mother — in Paa and Heyy Babyy too she had played a mom.
