Fresh and ex­cit­ing

GREAT CHEM­ISTRY

Ac­tors, on their part, feel that fresh pair­ings also help them with re­gard to their per­for­mances. Ir­rfan, speak­ing about work­ing with Saba in Hindi Medium (HM), says, “Some­times, co-ac­tors be­come very im­por­tant, since your on-screen chem­istry plays a vi­tal role. The role (in HM) de­manded some­one with beauty and hu­mour and she did jus­tice to it.”

And it’s not al­ways about craft and creativ­ity. For in­stance, Yami ad­mits that team­ing up with an ac­tor-star like Hrithik helps in reach­ing out to a larger num­ber of peo­ple. “Given their pop­u­lar­ity, names such as Mr Bachchan and Hrithik have hu­mon­gous reach, and if you get to do a film with such stal­warts, it’s amaz­ing. But it’s also im­por­tant to know if you have a sub­stan­tial role in the film,” she says.

IN THE PIPE­LINE

In the com­ing days too, a num­ber of new, in­ter­est­ing pairs will be seen on the big screen. Varun Dhawan will be seen along­side Anushka Sharma in Sui Dhaaga, and with Banita Sandhu in Oc­to­ber, while Sushant Singh Ra­jput stars along­side Sara Ali Khan in Kedar­nath. Also, Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra will ro­mance Rakul Preet Singh in Aiyaary. Ak­shay has teamed up with Rad­hika Apte and Mouni Roy in Pad­man and Gold, re­spec­tively.

Ak­shaye Rathi says, “There is bound to be ex­cite­ment and mys­tery around fresh pairs. For ex­am­ple, Varun and Anushka are live wires, so when they come to­gether in Sui Dhaaga, there will be fire­works. What’s more, they will also bring to­gether their re­spec­tive fan bases. All of that helps in at­tract­ing the au­di­ences’ in­ter­est.”
