Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol Still Most Popular on-screen Pair of Bollywood

Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are still the dream pair of Bollywood. The two most popular actors have churned out many super hit films for in Bollywood including Baazigar (1993), Karan Arjun (1995), Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001). Interestingly, the two last appeared on the big screen in the lead roles in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (they were seen in last year’s Om Shanti Om, where Kajol made a special appearance).

The good news for the Bollywood fans is that Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are going to appear together in Karan Johar’s next film Khan. Karan Johar had approached Kajol a female lead role for his last film Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna that Kajol turned down because she was not interested to stay abroad for about 90 days leaving her child Nysa. Kajol signed for the movie Khan last December.

Sawf News reported:

"Yes, Kajol is doing my film and I'm very happy… ," he said triumphantly.

Recalling how he failed to rope in Kajol opposite Shah Rukh in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Johar said, "She hadn't turned down my film, per se. I needed her to shoot out of the country for ninety days and she didn't want to leave Nysa for such a long time."

"This time around I told her, 'I need you. You just have to do my film.' That was it," he added.

As per an ongoing online pool that Sawf News is conducting shows that Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are still most popular on screen pair of Bollywood. The second place goes to Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif on screen chemistry. Akshay and Katrina presented two super hit films: Namastey London and Welcome last year. That is why, the on screen chemistry of Akshay and Katrina are getting popular among the fans. Now, let us see if the charming presence of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol brings box office success for Khan and Karan Johar makes some quick cash in.
