Indian cinema has always been a collage of romance, music, drama, dance and other elements. One of the largest industries in India, it has entertained people for ages.
There have been many commercially successful movies produced so far. The ‘lead pair’ of a movie is an important contributing factor for its success. Bollywood’s ‘perfect couples’ have redefined romance in many ways with leading pairs like Shammi Kapoor- Asha Parekh, Dilip Kumar – Madhubala, Dharmendra – Hema Malini and others who have enthralled people with their acting talent and their on-screen chemistry.
But if we look at the ‘perfection’ of a pair, some have outdazzled others. Their performance together as soul-mates in romantic duets has been spectacular and almost real. Let us see some of the best pairs of bollywood, admired together onscreen.
1. Raj Kapoor – Nargis
There have been many successful onscreen pairs in Hindi cinema but none can equal Raj Kapoor and Nargis. Almost every romantic song featuring this pair became famous.
Starting from the film Aag, this pair went on to act in nearly 16 movies. Some of their top musical hit songs are “Meri Aankhon Mein” (In my eyes) from Barsaat, “Pyar Hua Ikraar Hua” (Love has happened and has been accepted) from Shree 420, “Dam bhar jo udhar munh phere” (If you look the other way for a moment) from Awaara.
2. Amitabh Bachchan – Rekha
This romantic pair created waves with their on-screen chemistry. During a particular period if a movie casts them together, it was guaranteed to perform well.

3. Shah Rukh Khan – Kajol
The fact that Dilwale Dulhania Leh Jaayenge is still running successfully in ‘Maratha Mandir’ theater of Mumbai is a proof of this pair’s magic. With their intense emotional portrayal, these two have conquered many hearts. “Baazigar o baazigar” (Gambler o gambler) from Baazigar, “Jaati hu mein” (I am leaving) from Karan Arjun, “Tujhe dekha to yeh jaana sanam” (I realized only after looking at you) from Dilwale Dulhania Leh Jaayenge are few of their musical melodies together.

Aamir with his boyish charm and Juhi with her innocent charisma swayed millions with their compatibility in their very first debut ’Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ which became a milestone in their careers. They have given haunting melodies like “Aye mere humsafar” (Oh my companion) from Qayamat Se Qaymat Tak, “Ishq hua” (Love has happened) from Ishq, “Ghoonghat ki aadh se” (From the screen of my veil) from Hum Hain Rahi Pyar ke.
