Ever since she shied away from the spotlight recently, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s ardent fans have urged her to make a comeback. The actress, who has charmed millions with her sense of versatility and effortless performances, has defied the stereotypical formula to success.
Birthday Special: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her 5 best leading men!
On account of her birthday today, here’s a list of 5 actors who Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shares the right amount of chemistry and camaraderie with.
While their love blossomed on the sets of a film, their on-screen chemistry also created ripples. Whether it was Dhai Akshar Prem Ke or Kuch Na Kaho, their films, despite not being commercially viable, have brought out their inherent love. This was further cemented with their performances in Guru. Our personal favourite however, would still be Mani Ratnam’s Raavan, which poignantly captured the subtle nuances of love brewing between the two. It’s about time that we see the real life couple on screen once again, what say?
Their sizzling chemistry in Dhoom 2 catapulted the film to another level while their sweet, coy romance in Jodha Akbar brought a smile to everyone. From the urban glitzy couple filled with pomp and glamour to the royal and regal couple, Hrithik never looked hotter with anyone else. And that long smooch in Dhoom 2 sure set the temperatures soaring!
Shah Rukh Khan:
They played lead roles opposite each other in one film while in the other, they were cast as siblings. Josh had them playing brother-sister and the duo’s camaraderie caught everyone’s attention. Despite having a short appearance in Mohabbatein too, the SRK-Ash scenes tugged our emotional cords at the right places. But it was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s epic period romance drama Devdas which brought out the intensity of their performances as a couple oh-so-perfectly. Hopefully, it should not be too long before we see them sharing the screen once again!
She might never work with him on screen given their personal differences, but one cannot really forget their arresting chemistry in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. A film that seemed tailor made for this jodi, it helped Aishwarya rise to the top. Ofcourse, chances of the audience seeing the duo together on screen again are dim.
Ajay Devgn was a strong brooding presence in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam as the husband of Ash’s character. The Ajay-Ash pair worked wonders in other films as well. Rituparno Ghosh’s Raincoat is a personal favourite, given their effortless performance and intriguing plot-line. Playing two separated lovers who have a chance meeting on a sudden day, Ajay and Aishwarya essayed the required emotions perfectly. Even Khakee, which brought the two actors together worked largely due to the jodi’s vivacious spunk and inherent subtlety.
