Now who likes to break a winning formula? When Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol showed their chemistry way back in Baazigar, the producers went on to sign them for more movies with films Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Karan Arjun, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai all turning out to be big hits. The same goes with many other jodis, the more recent one being that of Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan (Student of the Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania), Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra (SOTY, Kapoor & Sons), Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor (Bachna Ae Haseeno, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Tamasha), Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone (Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani) etc.
However, there are certain jodis, that for some reason, are not repeated by filmmakers even though the pair had delivered a hit together. Here are seven such pairs...

Akshay Kumar-Nimrat Kaur
Akshay and Nimrat's pair was quite unusual - He, of the hardcore commercial mass movies, and she, of the festival fave circuits. And yet they looked positively adorable as the husband-wife pair, who helped millions of Indians escape from war-ravaged Kuwait during the Gulf War.
It is said that Aamir Khan doesn't repeat his heroines much these days, but then he is repeating Katrina Kaif (Dhoom 3) and Fatima Sana Shaikh (Dangal) for Thugs of Hindostan. Poor Asin, with whom he delivered the blockbuster, Ghajini, never made to his rarely repeated heroines list.
Shah Rukh Khan-Mahima Chaudhary
Mahima Chaudhary made an impressive debut with Subhash Ghai's NRI-conflict drama, where she made a lovely pair with Shah Rukh Khan. However, none of the movies she did after managed to make a huge impact on her career. Which is why the filmmakers never opted to cast her as SRK's heroine again. But then SRK did a surprise cameo in Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye, where she was paired with Arshad Warsi.
Salman Khan-Twinkle Khanna
Movie: Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai
Before she became Mrs Funnybones, Twinkle had a not-so-great acting career, though she was a part of hits like Baadshah and Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai. In the latter, her jodi with Salman Khan was very good and yet, the only Salman Khan movie Twinkle Khanna could do later was an un-credited cameo in Chal Mere Bhai. And she even didn't get to share a scene with Bhai!
Deepika Padukone-Arjun Kapoor
Movie: Finding Fanny
In this road trip black comedy, Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone's romance often takes a backseat as the movie focuses on the disparate individuals in search of a Fanny. But Arjun and Deepika make a cute couple trapped in an unconventional romance. Let's hope we get to see them together in a proper mainstream movie.
Shahid Kapoor-Anushka Sharma
Movie: Badmaash Company
This is a strange mystery as to why Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma never opted to work each after their sizzling romance in Parmeet Sethi's Badmaash Company. They make a really good-looking pair and deserve another opportunity to share screen soon.
Ranbir Kapoor-Konkona Sen Sharma
Movie: Wake Up Sid
Disregarding what Rishi Kapoor has to say about this pairing, Ranbir and Konkona shared a warm chemistry without having the need to run around trees or go to the Swiss Alps. More of a coming-of-age drama than a love story, the romantic subplot helped a lot in developing Ranbir's character in the movie.
Which one of them do you miss the most on screen?
