Yash Chopra’s conviction made him cast Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif as the lead pair in Jab Tak Hai Jaan – and it worked big time with audiences and critics alike
Ever since Yash Raj Films announced Shahrukh and Katrina would come together in the late master filmmaker’s last musical, there were speculations galore in the industry and media about whether the jodi could actually click with the audiences, considering Katrina’s loyalties to her ex, Salman Khan. With the movie grossing more than Rs 100 crores at the box office, the magical combo of SRK-Kat has indeed become one of the hottest in recent times.
In an awards poll conducted by BollywoodLife, the first-time jodi has emerged as the Hottest New Pair of 2012, with a big margin of 73 percent votes, leaving behind the likes of Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha with a mere 13 percent votes and Ajay Devgn-Sonakshi Sinha with 4 percent. Sadly, Kareena Kapoor-Imran Khan and Arjun Kapoor-Parineeti Chopra couldn’t make it to the list of top three jodis. Poor Ayushmann Khurana and Yami Gautam as the Vicky Donor jodi failed to impress the audience with just 2 percent votes.
