Akshay- Katrina Jodi Overrated?

October 30, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): It is not often that a lead pair in a Bollywood film is remembered for the wonderful chemistry that the actors share onscreen. While the Shah Rukh Khan – Kajol jodi is the most talked about in B-town, contemporary actors Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif have carved a niche for themselves onscreen. But is the pairing overrated? That is what the film critics would like to think, because every film which features the Akshay Kumar – Katrina Kaif pairing does well at the box office in spite of the fact that it does not have a good storyline to match.

If you don’t believe this, take a look at the recently released films with Akshay and Katrina in the lead. Be it Namaste London or Welcome or De Dana Dan, every film has scored well at the Indian box office. So will the magic work this time too? While the actors embrace themselves for upcoming release Tees Maar Khan, the question is whether a Farah Khan production will do well without lucky mascot Shah Rukh Khan. The promotion work for Tees Maar Khan is on its way and the promos look inviting to the eye, but keeping in mind therather storyline that Farah Khan usually follows, will the Akshay – Katrina chemistry be enough to draw audiences to the cinema? This is a question which can only be answered on Christmas Eve, when the film hits theaters.

Akshay Kumar though plays the cool guy. Brushing off any such over hype, Akshay confirms that the media can’t help talking about stars, and that the media is responsible if he and Katrina Kaif are the best leading pair of Bollywood. The audiences aren’t complaining though!
