Hot or Not? You Decide!

This year, we will get to see a lot of fresh romance on screen.

First-time jodis will take over from the seasoned ones, and show us how good their chemistry is.

Or isn't.

Joginder Tuteja looks at 15 first-time jodis coming to a theatre near you this year.

Take a look and tell us if they will pack in the sizzle!


Ranveer Singh-Alia Bhatt
Gully Boy

Their chemistry has been tested, thanks to the delightful advertisements they have been a part of.

Now, Ranveer and Alia will be seen together for the first time in a Valentine's Day release, Gully Boy.

It isn't a conventional love story, as the film chronicles the success story of a street rapper.



Kartik Aryan-Kriti Sanon
Luka Chuppi

Kriti and Kartik share some fun moments in Luka Chuppi, and the chemistry is for all to see in the trailer.

The couple play a live-in couple, living with a huge family.



Akshay Kumar-Parineeti Chopra

With the number of films that Akshay churns out, it's only a matter of time before he works with all the leading ladies of Bollywood.

In his first release of 2019, Kesari, he has Parineeti opposite him.

One waits to see the amount of screen time they will have together in this film which revolves around a battle of 21 Sikhs against 10,000 Afghan soldiers.



Sonam Kapoor-Dulquer Salmaan
The Zoya Factor

After Karwaan, Dulquer will romance Sonam in The Zoya Factor.

The film shouts blockbuster as it sets a beautiful romance in the middle of World Cup cricket.

Dilji romances Kriti in Rohit Jugraj's Arjun Patiala.

Apparently, the film is about a man who realises his lady love is taller than him.



Tiger Shroff-Ananya Pandey-Tara Sutaria
Student of the Year 2

Karan Johar launched Alia Bhatt opposite Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra in Student of the Year.

In its second installment, he will launch debutantes Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria opposite the muscular Tiger Shroff.

The cast looks super hot, and we can't wait to see how it plays out.



Shahid Kapoor-Kiara Advani
Kabir Singh

Kiara gives Shahid company in an intense love story, Kabir Singh.

It will be interesting to see how Shahid and Kiara pair up in this remake of the Telugu hit Arjun Reddy.



Hrithik Roshan-Mrunal Thakur
Super 30

This is not a quintessential love story, and one waits to see how much support Mrunal will give Hrithik in Super 30.

The film deals with academics and tells the story of a real life do-gooder mathematician.



Sushant Singh Rajput-Shraddha Kapoor

From college goers to middle-aged individuals, Sushant and Shraddha will travel through the years in Nitish Tiwari's next film.



Rajkummar Rao-Mouni Roy
Made In China

Mouni made her Bollywood debut in Gold last year.

After playing Akshay Kumar's wife in her movie debut, Mouni will be seen opposite Rajkummar Roy in National Award-winning director Mikhil Musale's Made In China.

Dream Girl

The star of 2018 gets together with the year's breakout star (Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety) in Dream Girl, which boasts a novel story.

Contrary to expectations, it is Ayushmann -- and not Nushrat -- in the title role.



Akshay Kumar-Kriti Sanon, Riteish Deshmukh-Kriti Kharbanda, Bobby Deol-Pooja Hegde
Housefull 4

Sajid Nadiadwala's fourth installment of the Housefull series sees as many as three jodis -- Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon, Riteish Deshmukh and Kriti Kharbanda and Bobby Deol and Pooja Hegde.

Expect a lot of fun, masti and naach-gaana in this reincarnation comedy.



John Abraham-Ileana D'Cruz

John worked with Anees Bazmee in Welcome Back and the film-maker roped in his Mubarakanleading lady Ileana.

As the title suggests, Paagalpanti is a mad-mad comedy.



Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt

Alia starts the year with her first-ever pairing with Ranveer Singh (Gully Boy) and she ends it with a new leading man in Ranbir Kapoor with Brahmastra.

The two signed the film when they were not in a relationship. Now that they are together, it would only accentuate the overall appeal of this Karan Johar produced, Ayan Mukherjee directed film.
