Director Nikhil Advani, who made Shah Ruk Khan starrer KAL HO NAA HO is in dilemma after Kareena Kapoor declined to work in his upcoming film opposite hubby Saif Kapoor.
A Bollywood trade analyst welcoming Kareena’s verdict said, “Kareena Kapoor has taken a wise decision to decline acting opposite her husband Saif Ali Khan because history is packed with umpteen examples where real life couples have always flopped to charm movie buffs on screen.” He added, “After considering the consequences of KURBAAN and AGENT VINOD at the box office, Kareena is right to decline acting opposite Saif.”
True indeed. A look down memory lane reveals that even the hottest pair of the 70’s Dharmendar and Hema Malini that worked in as many as 29 films as lead actors and gave several hits like SEETA AUR GEETA, JUGNU, SHOLAY, DOST, PRATIGGYA etc. was a failure when the duo married. Besides Bollywood thespian Dilip Kumar and her wife Saira Banu too could not give any hit after their marriage. The duo did three films after marriage GOPI, BAIRAAG and DUNIYA, all three were major disasters at box office.
What’s more even Kajol and Ajay Devgn Kajol who gave hits like PYAAR TOH HONA HI THA', ISHQ etc before marriage were rejected as hero and heroine after marriage. Similarly Bollywood couples like Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai
