You know you watch a movie where you feel that the lead pair’s casting is so good that you really feel like you’d want to see them on screen together again… but it hasn’t happened yet? Yes, that! There are a number of such on-screen romantic duos which we would really love to see again and BizAsiaLive.com is looking at five that could come together once more to wow the audiences.
Akshay Kumar & Anushka Sharma
2011’s ‘Patiala House’ may have failed to strike a chord with some of the audiences but noone can deny that the jodi of Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma was a fresh one and it’s quite disappointing in a way that the two haven’t been seen on screen again. Although the movies that both are not of specific genres, it would be great for them to be seen in a project which made the most of both of their talents and also created an impact with the mass audiences.
Shahid Kapoor & Rani Mukerji
We think Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukerji looked pretty cute on screen in 2009’s ‘Dil Bole Hadippa!’ Unfortunately, the film didn’t receive much appreciation at the time but it still seems to have a steady fan following. As both actors have matured and done some pretty interesting films in the last decade, it would be good to see them share the screen once again in a film which they can both excel in.
Aamir Khan & Kajol
Although Aamir Khan and Kajol shared screen space in 1997’s ‘Ishq’, they weren’t linked romantically in the film. As such, the one time they were seen in quite an intense love story was in ‘Fanaa’ (2006). They had sizzling chemistry in the Kunal Kohli directorial and it would definitely be a waste not to see that re-created again in something new. Let’s hope they are brought together at least once more.
Saif Ali Khan & Madhuri Dixit
In 1999 fil ‘Aarzoo’, Madhuri Dixit and Saif Ali Khan came together for the first time in a love triangle story which also starred Akshay Kumar. However, they haven’t been seen again with one another which is pretty hard to believe. Now that the two have moved on with their lives and taken on more mature and fun projects too, it would be interesting to see them in a film again. Their chemistry could take on a different facet this time.
John Abraham & Katrina Kaif
2009’s ‘New York’ was a film with much impact and seeing John Abraham together with Katrina Kaif was quite something. They came together to make a very loving couple who need to go through something which tears them apart but also brings them closer to one another. The duo haven’t been seen together in another venture and we think it’s time they were cast in a forthcoming film again. Is anyone listening?
We know there are many on-screen couples who we think should be seen together again on celluloid and we’re sure those reading can probably think of so many more. Let’s hope that filmmakers and casting directors are looking to re-create this one-time magic again.
