Bollywood roster of fresh pairs this year

Mumbai, Feb 27 (TIWN) Bollywood buffs are in for a lot of fresh pairs on screen this year. After the nearly complete no-show in 2020, many films set for release this year feature actors who have never shared the screen before.

Casting director and filmmaker Mukesh Chhabra says that seeing different actors pair up on screen for the first time is always a treat. "People love to see anything that is out of the box. So this is why they love it when new actors work together. Also, actors, too, are experimenting and they love to try out something new. It gives a very fresh look on screen. If you team up actors who have worked with each other before, you feel like they have been seen together so many times," says Chhabra. 

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh adds that this kind of pairing also brings in the numbers.

"People are excited to see fresh pairings on screen. Producers, of course, often want to pair the same hit pairs together, but people's expectations rise when they see two actors who have never worked together. These pairings can be of two heroes, two heroines, one hero-one heroine -- anything. It adds a certain novelty to the film," he says.  However, Adarsh adds that casting decisions should always be based on the requirement of the role. "It all depends on what the role requires. Makers select actors based on who will fit the role and if an actor can add that edge to the character," he says.
