Bollywood has no dearth of fresh talent. Be it the star lads and lasses, or the raw talent cut for the glitzy world of cinema, every once in a while, we get to see fresh faces, whose flair is woven into a screenplay to give us a movie to remember.
Now, whether the movie is worth watching or not is another issue, but it is these faces, and how well their chemistry scorched our screen and fired our hearts, that make these catchy and unforgettable.
Let us list down some of these cute and lovable couple debuts of Bollywood, that won our hearts.
Kumar Gaurav & Vijeta Pandit, Love Story (1981)
What happens when two runaway teenagers meet and clash? Love, and a cutesy story.
Aamir Khan & Juhi Chawla, Qayamat se Qayamat Tak (1988)
Raj & Rashmi paraded into our hearts, and were without a doubt, the cutest looking debut of the year.
Salman Khan & Bhagyashree, Maine Pyar Kiya (1989)
The reign of QSQT was broken by the “butterflies in my stomach” love story of Prem & Suman. We still go woozy with love when we listen to “Mere rang Mein, Rangne Wali”.
Bobby Deol & Twinkle Khanna, Barsaat (1995)
The swag king sashayed with the gorgeous queen of hearts, and how we loved them, whistling to the evergreen tune of “Humko Sirf Tumse Pyar Hai”.
Hrithik Roshan & Amisha Patel, Kaho Naa.. Pyaar Hai (2000)
The same old “Ameer Ladki Gareeb Ladka”, and the most cliché twist of a “humshakal” ka entry post hero’s death. But we still fell in love with these two, and watching them again, is a treat.
Shahid Kapoor & Amrita Rao, Ishq Vishk (2003)
Sigh! What to say of this one? A normal college love story, but the characters of childhood pals Rajiv and Payal were totally lovable.
Ranbir Kapoor & Sonam Kapoor, Saawariya (2007)
The movie tanked, Raj and Sakina stayed.
Imran Khan & Genelia D’Souza, Jaane Tu.. Ya Jaane Naa (2008)
Yes yes, this was not Genelia D’Souza’s debut, but it was certainly was the successful start of her second innings in Bollywood. Oh! How we loved “Rats” and “Meow”.
Ayushmann Khurana & Yami Gautam, Vicky Donor (2012)
This coming together of Punjabi lad and Bong lady was so explosive, that we had to clutch our racing hearts to keep up with the steaming love story.
Tiger Shroff & Kriti Sanon, Heropanti (2014)
Though not as epic as their previous counterparts, this one sure had some melodies swinging the cuteness factor their way. We love, nevertheless.
Suraj Pancholi & Athiya Shetty, Hero (2015)
Keep aside the shoddy direction of a particularly disastrous remake, we still find this couple dreamy eyed. Though that might also be due to the soulful rendition of “Main Hoon Hero Tera” in the background.
Vivek Mushran & Manisha Koirala, Saudagar (1991)
We all know about Bollywoood’s eternal fascination with Shakespeare’s romantic saga. But this one stands out in our hearts for its melodious tunes, the adorable Vivek Mushran and Manish Koirala, and the best of all, a happy ending for the Indian Romeo & Juliet.
Are you humming? Because we certainly are; Ilu Ilu…Ilu ka matlab I love you!!
So, this was our list of some of the cute couple debuts that had us swooning with all things “mushy vushy”. Tell us yours.
