Bollywood films have given us some of the most unusual pairings of actors and actresses. Needless to say, a majority of them have flopped while a few of them have worked their magic on the audiences as well as the box office. Back in the 80s and 90s, we would see a lot of newcomers, outsiders, star kids making their debut and then disappearing into oblivion as they either didn't get any offers or the audiences would not accept them in any other role.
Male actors have always been given preferences and the kind of patriarchal society we live in, in a number of movies we have seen flop actors starring opposite beauty queens or the top actresses which eventually resulted in that film bombing at the box office. The only bright side would be those actors who got to romance some of the most beautiful women in the world. Here are 5 flop actors who got to romance Aishwarya Rai Bachchan:
Chandrachur Singh- The Royal Scion got to romance the former Miss World in Mansoor Khan's Josh in 2000. Interestingly a film that also stars Shah Rukh Khan had Chandrachur romancing Aishwarya while SRK played her brother! Its well-known meme now that if you are ever feeling bad in life, remember Chandrachur Singh got to kiss Aishwarya Rai in Josh! That's one achievement!
Bobby Deol- You won't believe it Aishwarya debuted in Bollywood with a film starring opposite our very own Soldier. Back then, Bobby was a hot property and it was a given that the former Miss World will debut opposite a big star. They starred in Rahul Rawail's Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya.
Zayed Khan- Not many actors can claim to have romanced the most beautiful women in the world but the Mohabbat Hai Mirchi actor can proudly say that. Even Aamir Khan hasn't romanced her yet. Zayed got to romance Aishwarya in Leena Yadav's Shabd in 2005.
Arjun Rampal- The Ra.One of Bollywood starred opposite Aishwarya in Dil Ka Rishta in 2003. The film was produced by Aishwarya's brother and the film got a very good opening in England.
Faisal Khan- We don't know whether you had the patience to sit through Aamir Khan-Twinkle Khanna torture that was named Mela but didn't have the joy nor happiness associated with Melas. But if you did sit through the end of the film, Aamir is happily united with his Heroineee and Faisal Khan's luck shines and Aishwarya just drops on the screen out of the sky (literally) and we see romance brewing between the two. Even though it was a guest appearance but Faisal did get to romance her.
