she would make the perfect pairing with Shah Rukh Khan.
Cross-border pairings are not a new trend in the world of entertainment.
From the likes of Fawad Khan working with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil to Mahira Khan co-starring with Shah Rukh Khan in Raees, audiences have been treated.
Music lovers have also been spoiled with the likes of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam crossing borders to lend their melodious vocals to Bollywood cinema.
An image of Fawad Khan with Deepika Padukone from 2016 recently resurfaced.
This has led to a discussion over which Indian-Pakistani pairings we would like to see on-screen
Fawad Khan & Deepika Padukone
Both Fawad Khan and Deepika Padukone are talented actors in their own right.
With films such as The Legend of Maula Jatt, Money Back Guarantee, Piku and Bajirao Mastani between them, this pair would send hearts racing.
Fawad made his Bollywood debut in 2014 when he starred alongside Sonam Kapoor in the fairytale-inspired movie Khoobsurat.
Saba Qamar & Shah Rukh Khan
Saba Qamar is no stranger to the world of drama serials.
With hits such as Baaghi, Bunty I Love You and Maat, Saba has mesmerised audiences with her performances.
She also graced Bollywood with her presence in the film Hindi Medium, in which she starred with the late Irrfan Khan.
Saba was well received and many agreed that she had the talent and skills required for the big screen.
It is believed she would make the perfect pairing with Shah Rukh Khan.
Both strong actors in their respective fields, they would compliment one another should they sign a project together.
Iqra Aziz & Ranveer Singh
Iqra Aziz is one of the most versatile actresses in the Pakistani drama industry.
With hit projects such as Suno Chanda, Jhooti, Ranjha Ranjha Kardi and Ghairat to her name, Iqra has proved numerous times why she is a much-loved member of the industry.
Pair her with the popular Ranveer Singh, we have the perfect couple for a comedy film.
Ranveer Singh is a much-loved actor, praised for his performances in the likes of Padmaavat and Simmba.
Throughout his career, Ranveer has proved his talents and earned his place in the world of cinema time and time again.
Mahira Khan & Ranbir Kapoor
Can you imagine anything more beautiful than these two gracing our screens?
Mahira and Ranbir might just be the most popular choice to be seen together in a movie.
Mahira has already proved she has what it takes to be a Bollywood actress after giving a stellar performance in Raees.
Meanwhile, Ranbir has given many power-packed performances in movies such as Rockstar, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, making his place in the hearts of many fans.
To see these two fan favourites in a movie together would be nothing short of magical, especially if the script was a love story complete with melodious songs and mesmerising dance sequences.
Bilal Abbas Khan & Tabu
In a short space of time, Bilal Abbas Khan has quickly become one of Pakistan’s most popular actors.
Starring in projects such as O Rangreza, Pyar Ke Sadkay, Dobara and most recently, Kuch Ankahi, Bilal has proved his versatile acting skills.
When it comes to versatility, of course, Tabu springs to mind.
With power-packed performances in titles such as Chandni Bar, Virasat, The Namesake and A Suitable Boy, Tabu has wowed audiences.
To put these two names together would be nothing short of a miracle.
Both with their strong acting abilities and both proving they can express chemistry, Tabu and Bilal would surely be a treat to watch.
These Indian-Pakistani pairings would be great to see on-screen and it would be interesting to see their chemistry.
But these pairings remain fantasy for now.
This is due to Pakistani artists being banned from working in India after the URI attack in 2016.
Seeing the tension between the two countries Maharashtra Navnirman Sena imposed the said ban.
