Most Memorable Bollywood Onscreen Couples Of The 00's - II (2004-2006)


Akshay Kumar-Priyanka Chopra(Aitraaz)This one was all about the animal-instincts.

Vivek Oberoi-Aishwarya Rai(Kyun... Ho Gaya Na...)For many they did not work, For me they did. Successful or not, memorable and debated for sure. Also, Aao Na...

Saif Ali Khan-Rani Mukherjee(Hum Tum)

Irrfan Khan-Tabu(Maqbool) Our desi Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.

Abhishek Bachchan-Rani Mukerji(Yuva)Lallan and Shashi,slum-dwellers both of them, redefined the word 'Chemistry'.

Abhay Deol-Ayesha Takia(Socha Na Tha)The beginning of Imtiaz Ali. AND Abhay Deol. Lovable. Believable. A Classic by now.

ShahRukh Khan-Preity Zinta(Veer-Zaara)

Ajay Devgan-Aishwarya Rai(RainCoat)

Emraan Hashmi-Mallika Sherawat(Murder)


Amitabh Bachchan-Rani Mukerji(Black)This might be a controversial mention, but the tenderness and the interdependence between Michelle and Mr.Sahay qualify for one of the most poignant Big-screen experiences for the Bolly-buff in the 00's.

Abhishek Bachchan-Rani Mukerji(Bunty Aur Babli)Rural, rustic, FUN. Delectable.

Shiney Ahuja-Chitrangda Singh) and Kay Kay Menon-Chitrangda Singh(Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi)

John Abraham-Priyanka Chopra(Karam)

Jimmy Shergill-Minissha Lamba(Yahaan)The mountains and valleys of Kashmir. One taboo love. And a haunting music score. Kabhi kabhi aas-paas chand rehta hai

Saif Ali Khan-Vidya Balan(Parineeta)

Shah Rukh Khan-Rani Mukerji(Paheli) The quaint desert of Rajasthan and allthatresplendence. Visual poetry at its best.

Rajpal Yadav-Rituparna Sengupta(Main Meri Patni Aur Woh)

Sanjay Suri-Purab Kohli(My Brother Nikhil)The first time that homosexuality was not an issue of ridicule.


Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif(Humko Deewana Kar Gaye) Their first outing together. Also, the only one in which the chemistry worked.

Ajay Devgan-Kareena Kapoor(Omkara) He was Othello, she was Desdemona. It was Uttar Pradesh, but together they worked magic in a premise removed from the original Shakespearean era.

Shah Rukh Khan-Preity Zinta,Shah Rukh Khan-Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan-Rani Mukerji(Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna) Nobody expected KANK from Karan Johar. Reason they were pissed off after the movie. Also, this one had every grave situation gift-wrapped in a lot of glitz and glamorous chutzpah,so things looked fake in parts. But there was no denying the chemistry and currents among all the leads.

Rahul Bose-Mallika Sherawat(Pyar Ke Side Effects)Atypical. Unusual. Unconventional.

Salman Khan-Preity Zinta(Jaan-E-Mann)

Shiney Ahuja-Kangna Ranaut(Woh Lamhe) One of MY personal favorites of the decade.

Hrithik Roshan-Aishwarya Rai(Dhoom 2)Charm of good-looking people(despite the terrible smooch)
