One may say, the best well-known fact in t B-town is that "actresses can't be friends". Having said this, the film lovers not only enjoy the catfight between actresses, they equally enjoy the positive chemistry between actors both on and off screen, famously called 'bromance'.
And, though this culture is not new to Bollywood, experiments between various sets of actors are still brewing in Bollywood films and how! It's getting better and better thereby producing huge hits.
'Bromance' culture dates back to movies like Sholay or Anand, in which the chemistry between the lead actors was celebrated.Who can wash off the memories of the ever famous pairing of Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra in Sholay or even that of Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna in Anand.?
Apart from classics, films like Dil Chahta Hai, 3 Idiots or Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which seem more realistic and 'closer to life feel', have impacted the younger generation hugely, in a way, inspiring directors to continue the tradition of 'bromance'.
The upcoming film Dishoom, casting the cheerful, happy Varun Dhavan and the hunk John Abraham, is making waves in the industry for the same good old reason - 'their chemistry'. Already being called as a hit 'bromantic' pair, their chemistry seems amazingly wonderful and 'fresh of the boat' thing.
The latest update says that the action-star Akshay Kumar, is donning a 'ninja look', in the movie too. One has to wait and watch how he flares between these two hotties, enriching the 'bromance' even more.
