It's a fact that sometimes the much in love couple in a movie is what either makes the film or breaks it. While there have been innumerable twosomes on the reel screen who we just can't get enough of, there are also some that downright make us want to cringe. So, after dishing out numerous articles on the wonderful jodis of Bollywood, BollyCurry now brings you, in no specific order, the disastrous jodis who just should not have been of 2012!

R. Madhavan and Bipasha Basu 

First on our list are two very talented actors who have done very well for themselves in the film industry. Individually. Coming together for Ashwini Choudhary's Jodi Breakers, both were appreciated for their performance but the movie itself did not garner any recognition. The reason? There just was not any chemistry between the two. One could feel the uncomfortable hard work oozing out of them in bid to show some sort of chemistry. This couple is a definite no no on our list!

Karisma Kapur and Rajneesh Duggal

One is a 90s superstar who was making a comeback and the other a four-film old actor. The pairing started off all wrong when Karisma was touted to be making her comeback in the Vikram Bhatt supernatural thriller, Dangerous Ishq, opposite an actor who more looked like he could be her younger brother. Nevertheless, this movie released and as expected tanked at the box office. Most critics blamed the weak storyline and direction, but most box office goers were quick to blame the pairing.

Rani Mukherjee and Prithviraj Sukumaran

Falling in love with scents? Especially a man's body odor? Interesting theme but the movie had it all wrong from the beginning and the pairing, especially the dream sequence "Dreamum Wakeuppam," made it worse. The two were easily the most criticized by both viewers and critics alike. While the actors were praised for their earnest performances, the chemistry and romance expected was severely lacking. In fact, the dream sequence was claimed to be the coffin in the nail of this sinking movie and couple. Well we can say one thing, this dream is one that everyone woke up from quickly!

Sonakshi Sinha and Akshay Kumar

He is already an established superstar of Bollywood and the other is making quite a name for herself. However, sometimes, no matter how much praise you garner, things are not always rosy. Same goes for this couple. They both have superb acting skills but the magic that is needed to create chemistry on the screen just did not triumph from these two, which was proven in their movies Joker and Rowdy Rathore.

Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor

These two have earned quite a name for themselves, not only for their acting skills or the numerous controversies that the two have managed to pull themselves into, but also because of their family lineage. While one is the son of the Shahenshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, the other is the daughter of the jhakaas superstar Anil Kapoor. However, when we saw the two together for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Delhi 6, and Abbas and Mustaan's Players, we could not help but wonder why they were put together in a movie. The two may do a great job working separately but here, it just did not cut it. The chemistry was off and their acting in the scenes with each other, well let's not comment on that. However, giving them the benefit of the doubt, we can blame the haphazard script and hope that if these two are ever paired together again, we get to see something more exciting.

Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor

There is definitely a mix reaction for these two. Not only did they look like siblings, but Kareena actually seemed to look older than Imran, which we have no problems with but if the script says you're younger, you better make it believable! Starring together for Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, the two failed to create the right amount of magic for fans to click with the characters. However, we can't deny that at some points they did seem to have something going for them, especially during the lighter moments of the movie. The movie itself did not do too bad, owing of the storyline and an added bonus of the soundtrack which garnered much praise. Maybe having these two in a more lighter concept might work in their favor.

Akshay Kumar and Asin Thottumkal

This jodi had it all wrong from the beginning. Asin, who has always played the sweet traditional girl, all of a sudden portrayed this westernized and modern lady in both Housefull 2 and Khiladi 786 - Made in Punjab. On the other side, Akshay was just Akshay. Mixing these two together failed to create any sizzle or chemistry, though both movies did fairly well at the box office. However, both critics and viewers were not impressed with this couple's lackluster chemistry and romance. Most felt that because of the movies' ensemble star cast, the characters and the pair never got a chance to develop. In fact, most of the plot of both movies was about their fighting rather than their romance, which was needed to make this jodi a success. Nonetheless, we at BollyCurry can say that they do have potential, it just needs some developing.

Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif

Yes, the entry of these two on our list might come as a shock to a lot of people. Everyone knows that SRK has rightly proved he is the ultimate King of Romance while Kat has made a very strong position for herself in the industry as well. However, the two coming together for Jab Tak Hai Jaan was a let down. Their romance on the big screen came as a disappointment as they failed to develop the required chemistry that is known to be the soul of all YRF films. Undoubtedly, the movie was declared a hit, but we will not give the SRK/Kat jodi the full credit. The sting comes in the form of Anushka Sharma, who was in the film as well, and leaves the audience with the desire of more screen time with King Khan. Other than her, let's just say, we miss SRK with the likes of Kajol Devgn, Rani Mukherjee and other leading ladies of Bollywood.

And that brings us to the end of our not-so-happening couples of 2012. It's a known fact that with chemistry, you either have it or you don't and the above just don't. But do let us know in comments who you think should not be allowed to cohort on the silver screen and of any we may have missed.

    Whoever wrote this is stupid as hell. Aiyyaa was not a bad movie, you're just so used to seeing females objectified that anything else doesn't work for you. As for chemistry, most critics said they were great together. Please, don't talk about Dreamum Wakeupum. Carry on watching Sheila Ki Jawani videos because like usual Katrina is semi naked, sitting like a po*n object for men to salivate over.

    happy to see srk and kat here havent watched the movie yet but saw the semi kiss in that depressing songs sans or whatever its called i knew it was going to be a bad pair. 1st time srk just looked uncomfortable in a scene and really they just dnt look good with each another. and its not coz of his age coz salman is the same age as him and he has a terrible disease affecting his whole face but that man is just looking hot. SRK needs to stop drinking and smoking coz he is becoming the poster child for what u going to look like if u do these things in excess. he should get fitter and cut down on these habits and he might start looking like he isnt over 50 anymore. know he can do it.

    dnt know why in the world akki and asin are here really they look lovely together and loved her with him in kiladi she is really turning into a fine actress.

    as for imran and bebo dnt surprise me that they are here imran might be too handsome.

    and has sonam ever had a hit? And as for rani lol the less said the better.

    Sonakshi and akki rocked in rowdy rathore. Joker was a disaster but not because of their pairing.
