Bollywood’s unusual pairs
42-year-old Shah Rukh Khan will be seen romancing 19-year-old model Anushka Sharma from Bangalore in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. An unusual pairing? Well, isn’t tinsel town known for things unusual? Here is a list of some such unusual pairs. While some were successful, others failed miserably to woo audiences.
Salman Khan starred opposite 19-year-old Sneha Ullal in Lucky – No Time For Love. The lass actually played a schoolgirl opposite the brawny Sallu. Now, Aamir will woo the 20-something Jiah Khan in his ambitious project Ghajini. For the Khans, life definitely rocks at 40.
Again, pinning down the Khans in this aspect is perhaps unfair, for Ranbir Kapoor will soon be seen opposite Bipasha Basu in Yash Raj’s Bachna Ae Haseeno. Then there is Aziz Mirza’s Kismet Konnection where a mature Vidya Balan will be seen in love with chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor. Did we forget the Cheeni Kum rendezvous Amitabh Bachchan had with Tabu or the silent caper Nishabd opposite Jiah?
Recently, singer-composer turned actor Himesh Reshammiya was paired against 16-year-old Hansika Motwani, who just a few years ago played a child actress in the Hrithik Roshan-starrer Krrish. Now, her next film, titled, Money Hai Tho Honey Hai, is opposite 47-year-old Govinda. Seems like audiences are okay with the age factor, as long as the characters are well etched out.
