Last updated on: April 14, 2015 19:39 IST

Akki-Bebo are a hit jodi. Here's why:

Akshay Kumar recently claimed that Kareena Kapoor Khan is his lucky charm. It's probably why he loves working with her over and over again.

The pair have worked together in 10 films together.

Kareena will be seen once again with Akshay, in his upcoming film Gabbar Is Back, in a cameo.

Here's looking at movies featuring the Akki-Bebo jodi.

Gabbar Is Back

A glamorous woman was required to play Akshay's wife in Gabbar Is Back, and Kareena Kapoor Khan was asked to do the needful.

Shruti Haasan is the leading lady in the film, but Kareena's presence added weight to the proceedings.

Her romantic number with Akshay Teri Meri Kahaani has become instantly popular.

Rowdy Rathore

Kareena made a special appearance in the Chinta Ta Ta song from in Rowdy Rathore, as she danced with Akshay. In fact, her entry was the high point of the song.

 

Kambakkth Ishq

Akshay and Kareena spent the film bickering but it got them the biggest opening ever!

Several songs from the film became popular, most notably the dance number Om Mangalam and romantic track Kyun.

Was she in love with him? Or not? It really made you think and wonder.

Kareena played the femme fatale while Akshay was a rustic charmer. Together, the two were quite good though the film itself wasn’t.

 The songs Dil Dance Maare and Falak Tak were memorable.

Dosti: Friends Forever

One of the less popular films starring Akki-Bebo, Dosti: Friends Forever was about, well, friendship!

Though the film was mostly about Akshay and Bobby Deol, Kareena starred as Akshay's ladylove.

 

Bewafaa

Akshay and Kareena did several films with Dharmesh Darshan and Suneel Darshan.

One of them was Bewafaa, directed by Dharmesh Darshan.  

A love triangle that also featured Anil Kapoor, the film required the lead couple to have a couple of passionate encounters. And they didn't disappoint, particularly in the romantic song Ek Dilruba Hai.

Aitraaz

Akshay and Kareena played a married couple in Aitraaz, which was inspired by the Hollywood film Disclosure.

The love story had a third angle in the form of Priyanka Chopra.

Directors Abbas-Mustan reworked the plot, stage and setting to make it a more desi film.

All three actors gave excellent performances.

Talaash: The Hunt Begins

Long before Kareena starred in the Aamir Khan-starrer Talaash, she did another Talaash starring Akshay Kumar. But not too many people watched it.

Talaash was an action movie.

Ajnabee

Ajnabee's wife swapping theme saw good chemistry between Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu.

 

The Shaukeens

Kareena had a blink-and-you-will-miss-her appearance in The Shaukeens but even then, they made it count.
