Mumbai: 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, the actress had two over Rs 100 crore films ? 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 170 crore locally, `Golmaal 3` mopping up Rs 108 crore, followed
by Rs 141 crore grossing `Bodyguard`, and `Ra.One`.
