On-Screen Bollywood Pairings We Wish Didn’t Exist

Bollywood is known to ace the genre – Romance, but what is that one thing in films that can make love stories feel more authentic? On-screen chemistry, right? To connect to the romantic tale shown in movies, you simply have to adore the on-screen couple, but sometimes, no matter how hard you try, the on-screen pairings have zero chemistry, and they just look bizarre with each other.

Here are the Bollywood pairings we wish didn’t exist

Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan – Shaadi Ke Side Effects

While the movie was hilarious in telling the tale of a married couple, everything was going super fine until the scene of Farhan romancing Vidya came in; it looked like the two just couldn’t show the chemistry they were supposed to! We were cringing hard seeing Farhan and Vidya romancing each other, were you too?

Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri – Rockstar

Okay! Don’t hate on us for putting a legendary film like Rockstar on the list. (It’s Imtiaz Ali fan club, you guys!) We have absolutely no complaints when it comes to the masterpiece that Imtiaz Ali created, but something was off with Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri’s chemistry on-screen. While everyone connected hard with the film’s storyline, one couldn’t connect to Ranbir and Nargis’ bland chemistry with each other. Though the film will remain in our hearts forever, we secretly wish to replace Nargis Fakhri!

Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut – Katti Batti

We can’t help but think what was director Nikkhil Advani would’ve thought before finalizing casting Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut opposite each other. The storyline of the film was still tolerable, but when it comes to Imran and Kangana’s chemistry, you just can’t ignore the fact that the pairing was so bizarre that it was almost like a cringe feeling to watch both as a couple. Where were the butterflies when Imran and Kangana came together on-screen? They were probably sleeping!

Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan – Kismat Konnection

A film that deals with love and destiny have two actors who had little to no chemistry with each other; it’s ironic! Isn’t it? From the weird clothes to the chemistry, everything did go wrong with this film. Anything that managed to save the film a little was Atif Aslam and Mohit Chauhan’s voice. It’ll be safe to say that Shahid and Vidya were not a reel couple made in heaven, at least for Kismat Konnection!

Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor – Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

Sooraj Barjatya has always won our hearts by pairing actor Salman Khan opposite female actors like Madhuri Dixit and Bhagyashree until he picked Sonam Kapoor for the film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Even lavish sets and larger-than-life outfits couldn’t cover up the weird pairing of Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor!

Priyanka Chopra and Uday Chopra – Pyar Impossible

The only thing that comes to our mind is NO! Can we unsee it? Unfortunately, we can’t! It’s not only Pyar Impossible, but it’s also chemistry impossible!
