Pair made in heaven: Shahrukh and Kajol

In a poll conducted by Sanona, UK's largest online Indian movie portal, Shahrukh and Kajol were voted as the most romantic on-screen couple. Beating legendary couples, Dharmendra-Hema Malini, Raj Kapoor-Nargis and Amitabh-Rekha, the duo is truly the king and queen of romance. Well, this on-screen couple is a true definition of love. It is this reel-life jodi, which taught the 90s generation what love is. From, Karan Arjun, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to the most-loved Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, this pair made us believe that jodis are made in heaven.    

The golden oldies: Raj Kapoor and Nargis

They appeared together in some black and white movies, but their on-screen chemistry made our love lives colourful. It is not about this pair huddled together under an umbrella, singing an evergreen number, pyaar hua ikrar hua hai, but how their eyes spoke to each other even as they kept silent. It was this song which made the rains even more romantic for us. Every time the lens zoomed on Raj Kapoor and Nargis, that moment exuded a feeling of passion that never fails to fade away till now.

Machismo meets grace: Dharmendra and Hema Malini

Dharmendra was the Indian Marlon Brando for many, perhaps the first Bollywood actor to draw attention with his raw masculinity. Quoted as the ‘He-Man’ of his era, Dharmendra had this earthy, rugged appeal. On the contrary, Hema Malini was grace personified. Clad in elegant sarees with that million dollar smile, she captured many hearts. Their romance blossomed both, on and off-screen. Every time they were teamed up together, they made their audience yearn for love. They made us belive that opposites truly attract.

Young and foolishly in love: Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor

If there was ever a real and reel Bollywood pair chosen for being impulsively romantic, Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor would win hands down. Neetu was a bubbly girl, charming audiences with her innocence. Rishi looked fully capable to carry on the Kapoor khandaan’s legacy. Their real life romance occupied space in many tabloids. While, on-screen, they looked lost in each other’s eyes. Even today, when they stand together for shutterbugs, everybody is left wishing that their romance lasts forever.

Intense and fiery: Amitabh and Rekha

Perhaps, the most controversial Bollywood romances of all times, this had the makings of a masala Bollywood thriller. The much-married Big B could not resist the temptress, Rekha. Their personalities seemed made for each other, both intense and exuding passion. But, when they were paired together in movies, all they portrayed was eternal love and passion. Their on-screen chemistry made the pair one of the hottest couples Bollywood has ever witnessed. 

These on-screen pairs truly are the brand ambassadors of love and romance in India.
