Their reel life chemistry has garnered as much attention as their real life love story

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh seem to be the new ‘it’ pair in Bollywood. After Shahrukh Khan and Kajol’s jodi rocked the celluloid with their chemistry, looks like Dippy and her alleged beau Ranveer have rightfully taken over this empty slot. With everyone from Karan Johar to Sanjay Leela Bhansali trying to rope in this real life couple for their film, it’s not wrong to compare this jodi to SRK-Kajol who have several hit films and awards under their belts. Here are few reasons why we thinks that Ranveer-Deepika are the modern day Kajol-SRK, Amitabh Bachchan-Rekha, Dharmendra-Hema Malini and Dilip Kumar-Madhubala of B-town.

After Dilip Kumar and Madhubala sizzled the silver screen with their mere presence and cinematic brilliance. They featured together in Mughal-E-Azam, Tarana, Sangdil, Amar, however it was their real life chemistry that added to their reel life pairing. While Deepika and Ranveer have only one movie together they will soon be playing husband and wife in Homi Adajania’s Finding Fanny Fernandes and are also amongst the front runners for Karan Johar’s Shuddhi and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani.

Big B and the enigmatic Rekha became the next onscreen couple that managed to grab eyeballs. Amitabh Rekha started their cinematic journey with Do Anjaane and went on to feature in movies like Khoon Pasina, Ganga Ki Saugandh, Suhaag, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Ram Balram, Mr Natwarlal and Silsila. A lot was talked about this duo’s reel and real relationship. And just like the mystery around Bachchan Sr and Rekha continues even today, Dippy and Singh are trying to keep the suspense around their relationship alive.

Shahrukh Khan and Kajol proved to be a hit pair of their times. Not only was their onscreen chemistry great, but the Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge jodi rocked at a recent event when they relived their DDLJ moment on stage after almost 19 years. The Kuch Kuch Hota Hai pair went on to deliver several hit films like Baazigar, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum and My Name is Khan. While Ms Padukone and Ranveer will have to have a few more hits together as couple on 70mm, their on and off screen camaraderie can be easily compared to Shahrukh -Kajol’s, hai na?Subscribe to me on YouTube

  • zizzy

    Ranveer and deepika are a great Jodi! I cannot wait to see more films with the two of them together!

  • oyeeeee

    deepika is the best !!! she can make anyone look handsome ! she has made a sizzling pair with Saif RK SRK and RS ! she even looks good with John !

  • dprs fan

    i think they (dippy and RS) are more the ajay-kajol pair than srk-kajol pair. If u really think kajol is the more loud and open and ajay is the more quite and socially awkward one and in DPand RS situation its the same but opposite. I think its opposite attraction between DP and RS

  • laila

    bollywoodlife! you guys sucks! dont compare srk-kajol with miss bimbo with her Bandar ! it needs more then kissing around…

  • Terminator

    “Friends with benefits” Deepika-ranveer doesn’t came even near Srk’s Kajol’s level.

  • barbie

    actually deepika rocks with anyone. she shares a great chemistry with all her costars be it saif srk ranbir akshay but yeah something different with ranveer for sure. some sparks all around. Way to go for this jodi !!

  • Farhat Hafeez

    Deepika and Ranveer Kajool and Shahrukh..its just a fun to say..ayesa khena soraj ko chirag dekhany kay moradif hay

  • munas

    Deepika is a nice girl but there will never be any one like shahrukh and kajol in bollywood never.

    • Cattypuss

      This is probably true – but there’s no denying that Deepika and Ranveer look good together. They will be the new generation that eventually comes to the fore in Indian cinema. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t keep and admire the evergreen stars as they move into the 50′s, 60′s and beyond.

  • Nikki

    It may be too early to compare them to SRK-Kajol but there’s no denying that there’s something effortless and magical about Ranveer and Deepika together, on and off screen (and they definitely look better together than with their respective exes)

  • Manish

    Deepika looks great with all her co-stars, be it Raveer, SRK, Saif, Farhan Akthar or Ranbir. Thats just a sign of a great actress.. That said, she does pair exceptionally well with Raveer. Not fair to compare with SRK-Kajol as both Ranveer and Deepika are relatively new but they sure do show all hallmarks of being immortalized on screen like SRK-Kajol. Way to go Deepika, Ranveer. Kudos to you both!

  • kw

    nothing or nobody can ever be compared with srk-kajol!!!!
