Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia

The first film is often a make-or-break for most actors. If they create an impact, then it sets them on the road to a great career. Here are some Bollywood debut pairs that won people’s hearts when they made their appearance on screen for the first time.  

1. Rishi Kapoor-Dimple Kapadia In Bobby

He was  the  bade ghar ka eklauta  beta. She was his  nanny’s  granddaughter, and we  all know the rest. Buoyed  by  the best music score (by Laxmikant Pyarelal) ever in a teen romance of Bollywood, Bobby’s Rishi and Dimple Jodi created the  kind of craze never  seen before. Socho kabhi  aisa ho toh kya ho…haan, socho socho.

2. Kamal Haasan-Rati Agnihotri in Ek Duuje Ke Liye:

Playing  out a tragic  Tamil-Punjabi love story to  its doomed finale  this was  one of the  most exhilarating  romances  to have been  conceived for consumption. Director K Balachander remade his own Tamil blockbuster. And the Hindi version , again  bolstered by a  chartbuster score (again, by Laxmikant-Pyarelal) the  film made instant stars  of its lead pair, though  Kamal Haasan couldn’t eventually attain the heights in Hindi that he had achieved in Tamil

3. Sanjay Dutt-Tina Munim in  Rocky:

Sanjay Dutt and his brother-in-law Kumar Gaurav both made their  debut at  about the same  time. Gaurav’s  Love Story was a blockbuster. Rocky did  average  business. But it was Sanjay Dutt and  Tina Munim from Rocky who catapulted  to fame. Dutt continues to have a  screen presence to this day. The songs  of Rocky  (composed by R D Burman) specially Kya yehi pyar hai play on.In fact this  is the  title  of  this week’s  new release featuring television start Karanvir Vora in  the  lead.

4. Ranbir Kapoor-Sonam  Kapoor in  Saawariya:

Though this exquisite  excursion into experimentation failed, the lead pair under the sensitive supervision  of  Sanjay Leela  Bhansali soared  like  a dream. Ranbir  was an  instant star, taking the nation into a collective swoon as he  danced in  towel to Jab se tere naina. Sonam made a  slower but steady impact.

5. Meezan-Sharmin Segal in Malaal

The  latest  epistle to   that feeling called  love  is a tender  and strong  love story built around the  life in.  Though not directed  by   Sanjay Bhansali it bears  his stamp   in every frame. The  young debutants Meezan  and Sharmin Segal are refreshingly free  of  the  vain self-obsession that we see  in  today’s newcomers. They have a bright future ahead.
