A true-blue love story at the movies can only be magical when the makers manage to get the perfect actors to be reel-lovers. A love story is all about chemistry and if the leading pair manage to make sparks fly with their sheer presence together on the screen, half the battle is won for the filmmaker. Since decades Bollywood has served some major couples on 70mm. Right from Raj Kapoor-Nargis to Dilip Kumar-Madhubala, from Madhuri Dixit-Salman Khan to Karisma Kapoor-Govinda. We’ve some iconic pairings on screen, who keep working together and we never get bored to watch them. This week, Imtiaz Ali’s next film Love Aaj Kal releases on the big screen. While the trailer is impressive what really has caught audience’s attention is the hit pairing of Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan. Let’s just sit back and look at five most hit pairings of recent times.
Sara Ali Khan – Kartik Aaryan
Now this one Jodi is creating history in the world of millennials. Even much before their film can release, audiences and industry folks alike are waiting to watch Kartik and Sara together on screen. It’s almost been a year when Sara confessed her crush for the actor and then Imtiaz Ali played the good Samaritan and casted them in his film. Ever since the film announcement, netizens and audiences can’t keep calm. Their secret rendezvous, movie nights and dinner dates made headlines. What’s more, on the internet there’s a couple-name coined for them – SarTik and there are several fanclubs and even fiction blog pages for them. Now isn’t that so sweet! SarTik will be seen together on screen this Friday, but they have already won hearts with their chemistry and romance. We surely love this pairing of India’s heartthrob and nation’s sweetheart. Surely a match!
Varun Dhawan-Alia Bhatt
After starring in four films together in mere eight years, you surely know that audiences can’t get enough of them. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt started their journey at the movies together with Student Of The Year and today they are still the most hit and the hot pairing in the industry. Karan Johar, time and again, gets them together under his Dharma Productions and the audiences just love to watch them. Despite them being in a relationship with their respective partners, fans are often seen linking these two and hoping to be more than friends. Varun and Alia are a perfect duo on screen and we just love their tom-and-jerry chemistry off screen too.
Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone
They shared history and today they are best-of-friends. Despite being ex-flames, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor’s easy camaraderie makes fans loving this couple more. Even after the break-up Deepika and RK have done films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Tamasha and made the audiences realize that chemistry can never fly out of the window, if reel romance done right. Till date, the two are seen endorsing brands together and creating a havoc in the mad-ad world. Now we just keep our fingers crossed and hope that a filmmaker gets them together again on the big screen. Hope someone is listening to this…
Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif
Now if there is one Jodi that could create a storm at the box-office is Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar. The hit Jodi have starred in several films together and at one point Khiladi Kumar even treated Kaif as his lucky-charm and made her do cameos in his films. Right from Namastey London to Singh Iss King, the two have given us some memorable action, comedy and romance, all mixed in one. Today, they will be teaming up again for Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi and people can’t wait for it. She’s gonna dance and do the iconic Tip tip barsa paani, and Akshay is going to kick goons in his Khiladi style. We can already see the producers of their next, estimating the moolah they will create together.
Talking about hit-jodis in Bollywood and can any list be complete without the mention of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. The two created history with Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayengey and they keep repeating it each time they come together on the big screen.
