There was a time when films used to ride on popular screen couples. But not any more! Today filmmakers are not only experimenting with content but are also bringing unusual couples on screen. Filmmakers are trying various permutations and combinations to bring freshness to the silver screen. Some of them have been applauded while some have been disasters. Lets have a look a some of the most unusual pairings in Bollywood so far.
Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham
We start with our favorite jodi. Unusual as it may seen, this jodi is a huge hit. They came together on screen only once for Dostana and they won a billions of hearts with their effortless chemistry. They pretend to be gay to get an apartment and circumstance force them to be gay. Abhishek does a great job at being the girl in the pair while John is at his macho best. This unusual jodi is a super hit!
Ranbir Kapoor and Konkana Sen
They are two of the most talented in the lot. Konkana and Ranbir share a great bond as friends in the film Wake Up Sid. They lit the screen with their fresh chemistry as friends, but we don’t think they were convincing enough as lovers.
Naseeruddin Shah and Vidya Balan
This jodi shows us why age is no bar. Naseer who is 63 and Vidya who is 35, romance like young colllege goers. Their chemistry is extremely passionate and wild. In The Dirty Picture, they were seen in an erotic and blazing romantic zone and in Ishqiya they shared more passion, romance and love. This jodi tells us that love is timeless and it’s never too late to fall in love. Thumbs up to this jodi!
R. Machavan and Bipasha Basu
Madhavan is definitely not the fittest actors around and Bipasha is definitely the fittest actress that we have. They looked quite weird together. They play the role of break up specialists in the film Jodi Breakers. The film bombed at he box-office and so did their chemistry. Innovative but definitely not what we’d want to see.
Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan
Vidya Balan has a thing for older men, she can romance anyone and make them look like they are the most desirable couple but that was definitely not the case with Shahid Kapoor. Shahid Kapoor started off as a typical chocolate boy hero, though he has grown out of it, he physically hasn’t managed to do that so far which is why this jodi looked like a complete mismatch in Kismat Konnection. Thankfully this pairing hasn’t been cast together again!
Imran Khan and Karena Kapoor
Very unusual but and chic. They are complete opposites, if Imran is sweet Kapeena is saucy. Their’s is not a regular romance, they have a very different but appealing look together. Kareena looks older and more mature than Imran but there is a very easy camaraderie that doesn’t sag in their film.
Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan
Okay so this one is a huge shock to us! Not only are they physically different, they are differently different. Confusing as it may seem, that’s how it is. This jodi is something that we have to watch out for. Confusing or convincing, we will find out after the release of their film, Shaadi Ke Side Effects.
Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone
They are an odd couple, in the film too, they play an odd couple. Anways, we Indians are still not comfortable with the idea of the heroine being taller than the hero. Before the release of this film, audiences were really curious about this pairing. After the release of the film, Karthik Calling Karthik, they were left furious. Their chemistry was not something we could relate to, they seemed secluded. Not the best but not really the worst either.
