The Mismatched Couples of Bollywood
Nobody is perfect; this goes out to the film makers as well. Casting directors throughout the ages have made major blunders when choosing their main lead. Take the recent movie Robot for example. With due respect to the Tamil superstar Rajnikant, Aishwarya Rai did not seem his better half from any angle in the movie. In Bollywood too there have been many couples who could not attract the audience with their on screen chemistry. Few of those disasters have been listed below.
Amitach Bacchan and Jiah Khan in Nishabd:
The father of
all disastrous couples on screen. Amitabh Bacchan could not bring out the dirty
daddy in him even as he watched Jiah Khan bathe herself in the water with the
garden hose pipe. The Indian audience could not accept such a bold theme and
could not imagine their idol Amitabh Bacchan lust a nineteen year old Jiah
Khan. The film drowned at the box office.
Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan in Kismet
couple was an eye sore and people preferred to keep their eyes closed
throughout the movie. Plainly speaking, Shahid andVidya’s chemistry was cold
and boring. The story line added to the boredom. Shahid Kapoor plays an architect guy whose
lady luck is Vidya Balan. Considering the film’s performance at the box office,
it seems Balan was not at all lucky for him or the movie. Media claimed that
Balan looked much older than Shahid in the movie and that was the reason why
the couple failed to click.
Katrina Kaif and Govinda in Partner: Govinda should accept the
fact that he is no longer fit to act as the hero in a film and gone are his
‘Street Dancer’ days when he was a dancing sensation. The movie Partner saw
Govinda playing the role of Bhaskar who falls hopelessly in love with Katrina
Kaif. With the help of Salman Khan he is able to woo the girl of his dreams.
The film was fun, but seeing the young Katrina Kaif romancing middle aged
Govinda was too much for the audience. Thankfully, they haven’t been seen
together in any other film since Partner.
Tanisha and Uday Chopra in Neal n Nikki: Blame it on Tanisha’s
dresses or the couple’s irritating chemistry, the film flopped badly. Tanisha
could have looked better with some clothes on and not having her rib cage
sticking out in every shot. Both the actors looked more like ‘wannabes’ than
Uday Chopra and Priyanka Chopra in Pyaar
title of the movie says it all. This movie was impossible for the viewers. A
geeky Uday Chopra loves the college diva Priyanka Chopra. 8 years later, he
finds himself babysitting her daughter from an annulled marriage. A non sense
plot and Uday Chopra in the lead are the perfect ingredients for a flop film.
Imraan and Shruti Hassan in Luck: Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are
known for their sizzling chemistry on screen and they credit their real life
friendship for this. Actors Shruti Hassan and Imraan are also very good friends
in real life, but somehow their chemistry is as frigid as ice. In Luck, they
seemed extremely uncomfortable romancing each other. The film flopped no doubt.
Salman Khan and Zareen in Veer: She was rumored to be Katrina
Kaif’s sister but after watching the movie, critics said she could pass off as
Salman Khan’s elder sister. Zareen was expressionless except a smile or two in
a couple of shots. Salman seemed romancing a statue in the palace of Madhavgarh
and not the princess of the same.
