Their on screen chemistry works wonders at the Box Office. Audiences seem to love them and every alleged rumour surrounding a duo is believed to be true. Or at least we hope it is.
While they may rest in separate homes each night, we sometimes hope for a twist in the story and wish that these seven onscreen lovers become real life partners as well. [Sigh] Here’s to some wishful thinking.
Hrithik & Aishwarya
Who else can you ask for when it comes to finding a partner for Hrithik Roshan, the most handsome man in Bollywood? None other than former Miss World – Aishwarya Rai [now Bacchan]! Hrithik and Aishwarya have had audiences asking for more ever since they locked lips in the crime action flick ‘Dhoom 2’. They later got together on the sets of ‘Jodha Akbar’ a periodic love story where their performances were gripping and tastefully done. While their last movie together ‘Guzaarish’ did not turn out to be a commercial success; their onscreen chemistry will turn you into a believer. With Aishwarya marrying Abhishek Bacchan and Hrithik, going through a rough patch after separating from his wife Suzzane, this is one couple we would have asked cupid to go back in time and strike upon with a vengeance.

Deepika & Ranbir
It’s been some time that they’ve moved on in their personal lives but on screen, they are currently Bollywood’s most desired duo. It was no surprise that this couple started dating after making out onscreen during the shooting for ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, a movie which became an overnight success thanks to some superb performances. Plus when you are in love, it shows on screen. Yes! They’ve had a horrid breakup - with Deepika now rumoured to be with ‘Mr. Raasleela’ and ‘Katrina Kaif’ being the next one to steal Ranbir’s heart, yet, this electrifying duo showed the world that they can still ‘rock it’ when they paired up for Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani – a movie with a happy ending. If only life was so simple!

Salman & Katrina
Ever since they first came on screen together, audiences have been praying that our ‘Dabaang Bhai’ should pop the question and settle down in life for he had found a perfect someone. After having worked together in 'Partner', 'Hello' and 'Yuvraaj', we all thought it was only a matter of time before things were made official. Alas! That did not happen and while Salman and Katrina have currently found significant others, their onscreen chemistry in ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ – the duo’s last film together, had audiences hoping for a miracle. Tough luck we’d say.
Kajol & Shahrukh
Now these guys are like the ‘founding team members of the best Bollywood onscreen couples association’. Seriously! There is not a single person in the industry that would not vouch for what we’ve just said. ‘Raj and Simran’ won audiences over with their greatest hit together 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' which, incidentally is also the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema. With successful films like Baazigar, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Kushi Kabhie Gham and their latest My Name Is Khan, audiences around the world feel these two would have been the ideal real life couple. But then, Shahrukh was chasing Gauri and Ajay Devgan snatched Kajol. Tsk! Tsk!

Shahid & Kareena
We are not really sure what transpired before or after ‘Jab we met’, but we sure miss seeing this couple together. A shy young guy meeting a bubbly beautiful girl has got to be awesome right? Yes it was! Besides, their greatest hit together, the duo has also shot together for Chup Chup Ke and 36 China town and while it seems they were no longer romantically involved around the time Jab We Met released, the movie and their performances were a hit with audiences. Come back!
Saif & Bipasha
When the ‘nawab’ of Bollywood sets his eyes on the sexy Biphasha Basu, the outcome is a series of intimate sequences that will make most ‘filmy wives’ turn green. Hope you do remember what this duo was up to in Race!? Why else would Kareena Kapoor who claimed she was not insecure, travel with hubby to spend quality time while he shot for the film? Wonder what she would do now that they are paired again in ‘Humshakal’ – Sajid Khan’s next. Possibly get him to sign a ‘no more kissing on screen’ deal with the director of the film. Eh wifey?
Anushka & Imran
Seems like Imran will teach Anushka how to wear a ‘saree’ if it means he gets to have another cup of coffee with her. At least that’s what their latest commercial together would want us to believe. And while Imran Khan had gone on record saying that he ‘isn’t comfortable locking lips with female co-stars he is not romantically involved with’, he also mentions that he likes everything about her. Last seen together in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, we sure hope that something ‘yummy’ should cook up between these two. After all they do look awesome together! Don’t they?
There’s our list of seven. Who else would you like to see? Let us know.
