We bring you the best onscreen Tollywood couples who could replace Arjun-Alia in the much talked about Prasad V Polturi’s remake

2 States featuring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt is beine remade in Tamil and Telugu by PVP Cinema. So, BollywoodLife decided to suggest some hot onscreen jodis who could recreate Alia-Arjun’s sizzling chemistry onscreen. Siddharth-Shruti Haasan, Naga Chatainya-Samantha and Ram Charan Teja –Kajal Agarwal top our list. Read on to find out, why we think they will make the perfect 2 States pair.

Naga Chaitanya-Samantha

In February 2010, Gautham Vasudev Menon gave the Telugu industry a new lead pair to rave about with the release of film  Ye Maaya Chesave. The film marked the debut of simple yet beautiful looking Samantha Ruth Prabhu in Tollywood, who with her girl next door looks bowled over the audience. The crackling chemistry between Naga Chaitanya and Samantha was declared fresh and alluring by the critics and movie buffs alike.  The constant up and down in the journey of love was beautifully portrayed by the lovely couple, which made Ye Maaya Chesave a box office super hit. Comparisons were drawn between Ye Maaya Chesave and Geethanjali, a romantic film of 90’s which had Naga Chaitanya’s father Nagarjuna in the lead. Samantha also won Filmfare Award for Best Female Debutant that year. With the lovely couple coming together in Manam and Autonagar Surya, one expects Ye  Maaya Chesave pair has a great chance of bagging the lead roles in 2 States remake.


Siddharth-Shruti Haasan

Siddharth, who has maintained his boy next door charm for more than a decade now and Shruti Haasan, the svelte babe and daughter of Kamal Haasan, first came together in 2011 in Oh My Friend. Though the film got mixed reviews and lukewarm response at the box office, the cute pair of Siddharth and Shruti Haasan looked great on silver screen. The duo has already been in courtship and were believed to be in  live-in for sometime. Perhaps it was the jinx placed by people’s praises about how good the couple looked together that the two broke up, much to the dismay of their fans. 2 States has a few scenes which show lead pair Krish and Ananya living together under one roof. With the experience of live-in relationship which the duo of Siddharth and Shruti Hassan has, fans expect the cute couple to have an upper hand on the coveted roles.

Ram Charan-Kajal Aggarwal

SS Rajamouli brought together a smashing onscreen pair in his 2009 blockbuster Magadheera. The film saw a new couple of Ram Charan-Kajal Aggarwal romancing onscreen, sharing a lovely chemistry. The son of Mega star Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan, with his dashing looks and muscular body gelled well with the innocent faced cutie Kajal Aggarwal.  Infact the duo looked so comfortable onscreen that rumours of Ram Charan-Kajal affair started knocking the doors of gossip mills. Ram Charan and Kajal again struck gold with their sizzling chemistry in 2013 flick Naayak. The looks of these stars also matches with that of  Arjun and Alia’s – Ram Charan is tall and muscular and can look geeky in specs similar to Arjun Kapoor’s looks and Kajal is short and cute just like Alia Bhatt in 2 States. The duo has acted together in two films and both the times the films had struck gold at box office. The experts feel the producers might give this pair a preference, hoping Ram Charan– Kajal Agarwal jodi can bewitch the audience with strike three!

So Bollywoodlifers, now we come to the million dollar question? Which couple should stand in Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s shoes? Vote!
