Bollywood has had a reputation of making 'larger than life' movies; 'Love' being the main theme in most. Here in tinsel town, love has been defined and redefined at every instance a new fresh on-screen pair is introduced. While some pairs become unforgettable legends, some just don't seem to work out at all.
Whatever the storyline is, Bollywood movies centre around a thin ray of romance hidden away somewhere, somehow. A romantic song, a simple love sequence is just enough for the pair to get noticed for their chemistry.
1) Ranbir Kapoor-Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil)
Ranbir romancing a much elder actress Aishwarya on-screen... quite an unusual casting. With an intense story on relationships, fans can look forward for some powerful, passionate romance, drama between the two. Unusual is good!!
2) Alia Bhatt-Ali Zafar (Dear Zindagi)
After Fawad's natural and pleasing chemistry with Alia in Kapoor and Sons, another Pakistani actor Ali Zafar, is pairing up with her for this multi-cast movie. Will he also get a pat on his back, let's wait and watch!
3) Ranveer Singh-Vaani Kapoor (Befikre)
Ha ha! Interesting!! These two young, energetic, cheerful actors are all set to burn the silver screen. Their electrifying chemistry is already the talk of the town. Surely this one's to die for!
4) Kangana Ranaut-Saif Ali Khan/Shahid Kapoor (Rangoon)
National award winners Kangana and Saif are pairing up for the first time along with Shahid Kapoor in this period, romantic, love triangle drama. Intense acting, sizzling romance is what's expected from this cast. Let's see!!
5) Hrithik Roshan-Pooja Hegde (Mohenjo Daro)
The song "Tu hai..." sure shows some visible sparks flying between Hrithik Roshan and Southern beauty Pooja Hegde in this upcoming Indian epic, adventure-romantic movie. Worth a wait!!
6) Aamir Khan-Sakshi Tanwar (Dangal)
After a gruelling auditioning of 70 artists, well-known TV actress, Sakshi Tanwar got the chance to work with Aamir Khan for this upcoming sports drama. Mature, surreal chemistry is what's in our mind, isn't it?
7) Akshay Kumar-Nimrat Kaur (Airlift)
Theatre artist Nimrat Kaur bonded very well in this movie with Akshay Kumar. Their chemistry was subtle, elegant and heart-warming. Punjabi connect maybe!!
8) Salman Khan-Anushka Sharma (Sultan)
Slightly unexpected pairing one can say. Electrifying chemistry? Naah!! But definitely sweet and friendly.
9) Katrina Kaif-Sidharth Malhotra (Baar Baar Dekho)
The hit song "Kala Chashma" from this upcoming movie, is just a proof of how hot and sizzling this couple is on-screen. Surely Katrina needed this freshness, we can say!
10) Tiger Shroff-Shraddha Kapoor (Baaghi)
Pro-dancer Tiger Shroff and promising actress Shraddha Kapoor are pairing in this film, though not bad, did less in brewing their on-screen chemistry. Not always it works out!!
Some classic on-screen couples like Raj Kapoor-Nargis, Dev Anand-Madhubala, Dilip Kumar-Vyjantimala, charmed the audiences of the past. Later, pairs like Amitabh-Rekha, Anil Kapoor-Madhuri Dixit, fell in the category of the most unforgettable ones in Bollywood.
Shah Rukh-Kajol, Akshay-Shilpa Shetty, Akhay-Katrina sizzled on-screen for a long time. Hot and happening Ranbir-Deepika and Ranveer-Deepika have topped the list of hit jodis of today.
Unusual pairing coupled with an unconventional story has proved to be successful many a time too.
Only-one-time on-screen couples like Alia Bhatt-Randeep Hooda in 'Highway', Ranbir Kapoor-Konkana Sen Sharma in 'Wake up Sid' and to the latest Deepika Padukone-Irrfan Khan in 'Piku', have worked out superbly, leaving a definite mark in the audiences' mind.
Apart from veterans, fresh, young, good-looking debutants have given the casting directors an amazing array of permutations and combinations to try out in terms of pairing them. Nevertheless, some creative directors of today surprise the audiences by casting off-beat, out-of-the-blue pairs breaking the monotony.
