Controversies  aside, the chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the upcoming Karan Johar film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil seems simply sizzling. The love story, which will see the return of Johar as a director, also features Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan. However, what has become the talking point in the town is how stunning Ranbir and Aishwarya look together.

Recently, the two even did a photoshoot for Filmfare, which was featured on the November cover of the magazine. A rusty Ranbir and bold Aishwarya — definitely unusual pairing for a cover pix. Here is a list of the actresses, Ranbir has been seen with in earlier films.

Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone

The two dated for a long time and their real-life chemistry definitely encashed in reel life with films like Bachna Ae Haseeno and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. But was there any oomph factor?

Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif

Despite their intriguing chemistry in Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Deewani and Rajneeti, Ranbir and Katrina always appeared like an intense couple on-screen. No sensuousness promised here.

Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma

Anushka is also paired with him in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Two became popular for their number of kisses in Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet. But their chemistry seem more of friends than lovers.

This pairing was probably one of the most unique in Hindi films. Ranbir and Priyanka oozed simplicity and love in Barfi but was there any excitement or energy to be seen in their chemistry? ‘No. Just cute’ is the answer!

Ranbir Kapoor and Pallavi Sharda

No story, no chemistry! The ‘Besharam’ chemistry between Ranbir and Pallavi, in fact, make us wonder why did the actor even do that film?

Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri

Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar was the launch pad for Nargis Fakhri in Bollywood. The actress, who played a character of a Kashmiri girl well, could not make any impression in the audience’s mind.

Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor

The duo debuted in Bollywood together and the expectations were high from them. But, Bhansali’s storytelling could not do justice to the young stars and the film failed to add anything on their chemistry.
