4 Best Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor Movies

  • Raqes Singh
  • Deepika and Ranbir’s movie list isn’t long drawn out but each and every movie on that list was widely accepted by audiences and critics alike

    Once a couple, now friends who go on double dates with their spouses, Ranbir and Deepika have been in each other’s lives for close to fifteen years now! It is a fascinating fact that the duo made their Bollywood debuts in the same year, 2007, Deepika with Farah Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om’, alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Sawariya’, paired opposite Sonam Kapoor. However, Deepika’s entry into the world of cinema began in 2006 with the Kannada movie ‘Aishwarya’.

    Their individual career trajectory has been filled with some lows but mostly highs and massive love from the audience. Deepika was last seen in the film that broke every record for a Hindi movie, Pathaan, and Ranbir’s last movie ‘Tu Jhooti Main Makkaar’ brought back the actor’s charm, his lively and fun-loving side as an actor after a long time! 

    Let’s look at the list of movies in which they were paired opposite each other:

    1. Bachna Ae Haseeno

    Produced byAditya Chopra 
    IMDb rating6.1/10
    Running time155 minutes 
    Budget₹12 crores
    Box office collection₹79 crores
    Release date15 August 2008

    The first movie when the world witnessed the magic Deepika and Ranbir are capable of creating on screen. It is a well-known fact that they were dating during the filming of this movie and while that may backfire for some couples in terms of their off-screen chemistry taking away from their on-screen chemistry, it played out beautifully for them on-screen.

    ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ was the 8th highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2008. It is the story of Raj Sharma, played by Ranbir Kapoor. Raj is a casanova who dates and forgets not worrying about the girl that’s left behind. His life is going well until he meets Gayatri, played by Deepika Padukone, and falls madly in love with her. However as they say karma is a bitch, this time, Gayatri wasn’t interested in getting together with him.

    Gayatri’s rejection took Raj on a guilt trip thinking about his past actions and he decides to apologize to every girl he has ever hurt! Will his efforts go in vain or will they melt Gayatri’s heart? 

    2. Bombay Talkies

    Bombay Talkies celebrated the 100 years of Indian Cinema with a beautiful concept of telling four different stories of how Bollywood impacted common lives. These four stories were told by four different directors and put together as one film, ‘Bombay Talkies’.

    Though Deepika and Ranbir didn’t have full-fledged roles in the movie and they didn’t even share screen space together! Ranbir played himself and Deepika has a special appearance in the song “Apna Bombay Talkies”. Alas! they played a part in the same film so that had to be on our list.
