Bollywood Actors and Actresses: On Screen Couples (Jori)

Hit on screen couples (jori; jodi) is a concept unique to Bollywood. Although Bollywood has produced many stars, superstars and a few megastars, where Indian silver screen really excels is the presence of many on screen couples who had sizzling chemistry. This chemistry usually translated into box office hits. In every decade there have been a couple of on screen pairs in Bollywood who are considered as true identity of Indian cinema in that particular decade. For example, when one has to show anything pertaining to the 1950s Bollywood flicks, an image of Raj Kapoor in his Charlie Chaplin style and Nargis is her black and white sari can do the trick. In the same way when you want to show Bollywood of 1980s, a pink fitting dress (like the one Sridevi wore in Naino mein Sapna; 1983-Himmatwala) and a lot of pots on the set arranged in some South Indian fashion and some funky dance moves of Sridevi Jitender fame can do it for you.

Here is a decade wise list of hit jodis from Bollywood.

    Some Hindi movies also became big successes in the People’s Republic of
    China during the 1940s and 1950s. This has given birth to a number of
    latest Bollywood news channels as also a number of magazines to come up
    with their news. When the website is open there comes options of “hindi song or lyrics of hindi song” opens that.
    Among these, Light of Asia, about the Buddha, and Shiraz about the origins of the Taj Mahal, referred to as ‘Romances from India’ by their producers, render “India” as a startling, exotic
    assemblage: scenes of ancient and medieval court life, attended
    by the ritual of courtly gesture, and by spectacular processions of elephants and camels, are juxtaposed with a glittering naturalism.
