Bollywood stars have managed to surprise fans after stepping out of their comfort zones and taking up projects that have an unconventional casting. The audience has often loved this trend of experimentation of Bollywood pairs. Filmmakers are now looking out for more actors who make a rather unusual but exciting Bollywood pair. In some cases, some pairings do not work because the chemistry between the two seems off. This directly affects the performance of the film. However, a pair that pulled it off was Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor.
One such duo which worked wonders on the big screen is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor. The pair were seen together in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The chemistry between the two seemed natural and was appreciated by the audience. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil released in 2016. The film also starred Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan. The movie turned out to be a massive hit at the box office.
“Aishwarya is such a superb actor and also a family friend. She's one of India's most talented and respected women. I will be forever grateful to her for her contribution to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil,” Ranbir said. Aishwarya Rai was also nominated for the ‘Best Actor In A Supporting Role (Female) for the film.
Ae Dil Hain Mushkil was not Ranbir's first interaction with Aishwarya. He was an assistant director for Aishwarya’s 1999 film Aa Ab Laut Chalen. He also revealed that he had been friends with Aishwarya since then. Ranbir revealed how he was nervous about the on-screen pairing. The actor said that he was scared that Aishwarya would say no to acting across him in the movie.
The movie traced the love story of Alizeh (Anushka Sharma) and Ayan (Ranbir Kapoor). Aishwarya played the role of a poet, Saba, who fell in love with Ayan. The poetic, mature romance between Ayan and Saba was appreciated even by critics. Aishwarya’s performance as Saba won her several accolades.
Aishwarya was then seen in another unusual pairing opposite Rajkummar Rao in Fanney Khan. The film released in 2018. Fanney Khan also starred Anil Kapoor in the lead role. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will now be seen in Jasmine: Story of A Leased Womb. On the other hand, Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in Brahmastra along with Alia Bhatt and Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan. Brahmastra is directed by Ayan Mukherji. It is slated to release in 2020.
