Times when Bollywood surprised us with their unusual on-screen pairs!


Bollywood has always been a trend setter, be it in the form of a love story or the chemistry between the on screen couples. The Bollywood movies have never failed to keep the fire of love within us intact. We always look up to these trend setters in an attempt to have a perfect life. These Bollywood films have had some amazing on-screen couples that we love to watch, especially for the chemistry that they share, like Shahrukh-Kajol. This couple is known to be the king and queen of Bollywood romance and has always set a high bar of on-screen romance.

However, the real challenge occurs when the director of a film has to break from this 'perfect' couple norm and go for some unique pairing in order to give freshness to the film all together. The film makers have now started making experiments with the talented actors as pairs in different genres.

Here is the list of such odd-pairings, some of which have performed amazingly well on-screen, and thus have set their own trends.

Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan

Deepika Padukone is generally seen with the fit actors of Bollywoods, like Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh or Shahrukh Khan. So, Deepika's pairing with Irrfan in the movie Piku was definitely an unexpected one. Irrfan plays the romantic lead opposite Deepika and surprisingly, this pairing proved to be so successful that this pair is now set to be seen again together in a biopic on Ashraf Khan, popularly known as Sapna Didi.

Vidya Balan and Manav Kaul

Vidya and Manav, the actors who have never earlier shared the screen together, turned out to be an amazing couple in the movie, Tumhari Sulu. Their chemistry is seen to be relatable and their interactions in the movie felt rather honest. Both these actors perfectly helped in bringing realism to their characters in the movie.

Priyanka Chopra and Rahul Bose

The actors were seen a bitter couple in the movie, Dil Dhadakne Do. The movie is based around a family drama. Despite being amazing actors individually in Bollywood, the audience could not anticipate to see these actors together on-screen until it actually happened.

Naseeruddin Shah and Madhuri Dixit

The unusual pair was seen together in the movie Dedh Ishqiya. The movie revolved around the interesting story of an old romantic Khalujan trying to woo a wealthy widow with poetry. As odd as this couple looks, Vidya Balan and Naseeruddin Shah set the screen on fire whenever they are seen together. Also, this pair later left its impactful mark in the movie The Dirty Picture.

Amitabh Bachchan and Jiah Khan

Ram Gopal Varma's film, Nishabd starring Amitabh Bachchan and Jiah Khan showcased the love story of a 60 year old man and his daughter's friend (Jiah Khan), who is 18 years old. Not just the couple, but also the movie is unusual which questions the taboo subject of romance between a girl and a guy of her father's age.

Karishma Kapoor and Manoj Bajpayee

The actors were seen together in the movie Zubeidaa. Karishma Kapoor was known for entertainment movies and on the other hand, Manoj Bajpayee was merely a quintessential method actor. This couple proved that an unusual pairing is successful mainly when it is backed by a good story.

Kareena Kapoor and Sumeet Vyas

Since the story of the movie Veere Di Wedding revolved around Kareena Kapoor, Sumeet Vyas was indeed an unexpected actor in the cast of the movie. Yet he fits in beautifully and seems to be a perfect choice to play the role of Kareena's Fiancé.

Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

This uncommon combination looked completely comfortable with each other on-screen in the movie Ae Dil hai Mushkil. They never failed to keep the audience spellbound and it won't be wrong to say that this couple literally sizzled on-screen with their performance.

Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh

Although Diljit Dosanjh is a well known face in Punjabi cinema and is famous for his song, surprisingly, it was even difficult for him to believe the fact that he was paired up alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan in Udta Punjab. Both the actors maintained the authenticity of their roles in the movie and yet another unexpected couple made its mark in the movie.

Anushka Sharma and Parambrata Chatterjee

The surprising pair of Anushka Sharma & Parambrata Chatterjee in the movie Pari deals with the love story of a simple man and a demonic girl. It is only after you watch the movie that you realise that this couple played their role effortlessly and looked so good together.

Seems like the experiments made by the director worked. Which unusual pair is your favourite?
