If you value the adage "behind every successful man there is a woman," then you will likely to agree that Kareena Kapoor is the woman behind the success of the recent films of Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan.

If Shah Rukh Khan has got the credits for his stunning performance in "Ra.One" (2011), then what about the Bebo who played SRK's wife Sonia Shekhar Subramanium in the film and hypnotized hundreds of eyes with her "Mujra" hop? Bebo, who maintains a low profile about her role and contribution in the film, deserves the same credit for the success of the most-hyped film of the week.

Kareena was part of the top grossers like "3 Idiots" (Rs 200 crore) and "Golmal 3" (Rs 100 crore). Can you think of a "3 Idiots" without the role of Kareena Kapoor's Pia and imagine a better "Golmaal- 3" without the character "Daboo?"

In Bollywood where male dominates, Kareena's role in those blockbuster films may not be as meaty as those of superstars. But her contribution in those films is creditable.

Kareena is the only actress in Bollywood who could maintain her position on the top spot since the commercial success of "Jab We Met" (2007) to date.

The style queen is the perfect example of talent and intellect, and Kareena has surpassed all her contemporaries.

The 31-year-old actress, who made debut in 2000 with JP Dutt's film "Refugee", is proud to be the only actress who worked with the big Khan brigade of B-town, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Imran Khan and Saif Ali Khan.

During her more than a decade long career in Bollywood, Kareena has acted in more than 40 films and 11 hits in her credit.

The actress has a long way to go. After "Ra.One", it's "Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu" with Imran Khan and "Agent Vinod" with Saif Ali Khan.
