Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh – meet the new Kajol and Shahrukh Khan of Bollywood!

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?
