Deepika Padukone’s fans were surprised when a film was announced pairing the Chhapaak actress with the popular South star Prabhas in Nag Ashwin’s upcoming film. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has also been roped in to play an important role in the pan-India project. Touted to be a sci-fi film, many more popular celebrities are expected to be roped in from across the country.
Vaani Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurrana

Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao
Rajkummar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor have been paired for the first time in the horror-comedy and Hardik Mehta-directorial Roohi Afzana. Now that was unexpected. It would be interesting to see the chemistry of the new pair as the film opens in theatres in March.
Sara Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar
Pairing Sara Ali Khan opposite Akshay Kumar in Atrangi Re is also quite unexpected. But director Aanand L Rai has his own way of thinking. In the film, he has not only cast Akshay with his colleague Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara, but also placed her opposite Dhanush for the first time. Sara plays a rustic woman from Bihar.
Parineeti Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor
Despite Ranbir Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra been in the film industry for quite some years now, no director thought of casting them together until Sandeep Reddy Vanga did in his film Animal.

Mrunal Thakur, who wooed the audience with her performance in Super 30, will be seen as the female lead in Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey. The film, a remake of the Telugu hit of the same name, has completed its shooting and is in the production stage. On casting Mrunal, director Gowtam Tinnanuri said that after Shahid was on board, he only had Mrunal on his mind for the lead opposite him, as he felt that the actress will perfectly fit for the part in Jersey.
Manushi Chillar and Akshay Kumar
When Miss World Manushi Chillar was cast to play the mythical Sanjukta opposite Akshay Kumar in Dr Chandra Prakash Dwivedi’s Prithviraj Chauhan, people from the industry felt the actress was lucky to get such a promising debut film. Now it would be interesting to see how the onscreen Sanjukta does justice to the character and whether the fresh pair’s chemistry clicks.
