2018 has been a good year so far for the Hindi film industry. The film calendar yet has given a good mix of movies. We’ve had horror comedy to historical drama making a moolah at the box office.
While good story telling is one of the crucial factors behind the success of a movie, unusual pairing of actors and actresses is also play an important role in the success of the film.
It wouldn’t be wrong to deem 2018 as the year of unusual on-screen pairings.

Sumeet Vyas and Kareena Kapoor Khan

The most unusual Jodi of the year 2018 was for the recently released film Veere Di Wedding where actor Sumeet Vyas was paired opposite the gorgeous Kareena Kapoor Khan. Sumeet played Kareena’s fiancé in the film and they both looked refreshing as a couple. Sumeet as a boyfriend to Kareena in the film was well received by the audience.

Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor

The unlikely pair came together for the year’s most controversial film so far, Padmaavat. While we admit that Ranveer Singh put up a powerful performance, we thoroughly enjoyed the innocent love between Maharawal Ratan Singh and Padmaavati.


Vicky Kaushal and Alia Bhatt

​The young actors Vicky Kaushal and Alia Bhatt brought freshness with their unusual pairing onscreen with their latest film Raazi. The duo looked promising and complimented each other throughout the film in all the scenes. Vicky has been associated with indie genre films from the beginning and seeing him paired opposite Alia was an unexpected experiment by the filmmaker Meghna Gulzar which succeeded.
