It has become pretty evident that Bollywood prefers older men and younger women to be cast for movie roles. This trend is somehow changing but there are some movies that show romance between actors having a huge age difference.
So here are top 10 most uncomfortable age gaps between couples in Indian movies
1. Madhuri Dixit and Vinod Khanna
Madhuri Dixit and Vinod Khanna romanced each other in the movie ‘Dayavan’, in which Vinod Khanna fell in love with Madhuri Dixit who played the role of a local prostitute. There were certain uncomfortable scenes in this film which showed romance between 21-year-old Madhuri and a 42-year-old Vinod.
2. Sanjay Dutt and Prachi Desai
Sanjay Dutt and Prachi Desai acted together in the movie ‘Policegiri’ which was the official remake of the 2003 south Indian film ‘Sami’. 58-year-old Sanjay Dutt plays the role of a DCP in this film who romances a 29-year-old Prachi Desai. Isn’t it odd for the audience?
3. Ajay Devgn and Sayesha Saigal
Ajay Devgn and Sayesha Saigal were seen together in the 2016 film ‘Shivaay’. This movie was about a father who would go to any extent to get his daughter back. The weird part about this movie was seeing 47-year-old Ajay eventually falling for a 19-year-old Sayesha.
4. Amitabh Bachchan and Manisha Koirala
Amitabh Bachchan and Manisha Koirala were seen together in the film ‘Lal Badshah’. This movie was a disaster at the box-office. Seeing a 57-year-old Amitabh Bachchan and a 29-year-old Manisha Koirala romancing was not a pleasant sight to witness.
5. Salman Khan and Sneha Ullal
Salman Khan and Sneha Ullal were seen together in the 2005 film ‘ Lucky- No time for love’. It was a love story about two people who fall in love with each in a war zone region in Russia. During the filming of the movie, Salman Khan was 40 years old whereas Sneha Ullal was an 18-year-old girl.
6. Om Puri and Mallika Sherawat
Om Puri and Mallika Sherawat were seen together in the film ‘Dirty Politics’. This was nothing less than a horrible movie and what added to it was a 65-year-old Om Puri getting intimate and falling for a 39-year-old Mallika Sherawat. Both uncomfortable and disgusting at the same time.
7. Himesh Reshammiya and Hansika Motwani
They both worked together in the film ‘ Aap ka Surror’. It was already a nightmare seeing Himesh Reshammiya acting and the worst part was that Himesh was 34 years old and Hansika was just 15-year old while filming this. Isn’t it creepy much seeing an uncle romancing a girl of his daughter’s age?
8. Rajnikanth and Sonakshi Sinha
They both worked together in the film ‘Lingaa’ in 2014. This movie revolves around Lingaa, a thief played by Rajnikanth who enters a village to save the dam and temple from a corrupt politician. What wasn’t easy to digest was seeing Sonakshi and Rajnikanth romancing as they have an age difference of 37 years.
9. Mammootty and Isha Talwar
These actors have worked together in the Malayalam film ‘ Balyakalasakhi’ in 2014. A little tough aspect in this film was to witness the childhood romance that blossoms on screen, the romantic angle between these two actors was uneasy as the main lead was 63 years old and the girl was 27 years old.
10. Mohanlal and Amala Paul
They both worked in the Malayalam film ‘ Laila O Laila’. This movie follows the life of Jay who works for the Indian government and as a coverup operates an export business. Mohanlal a 55-year-old loves and marries Amala a 24-year-old in the film. How the hell such things happen is way beyond our understanding.
