Dilip Kumar-Johnny Walker, Rajendra Kumar-Rajendra Nath, Govinda-Johnny Lever. There have been many actor-comedian 'jodis' that have been highly popular amongst the Hindi film audience and together they have succeeded in providing entertainment and laughter. But in recent times there have been no permanent actor-comedian 'jodis' or pair that we can talk about. No doubt there have been numerous award winning comic acts by class actors and comedians but no jodi that comes to mind instantly.
However, there is one actor-comedian 'jodi' that has not only been loved by the audience but different directors too have used them seeing their popularity. And they are, as you can make out from our headlines, Akshay Kumar and Rajpal Yadav. Ironically, The film where they were first noticed together in Vipul Shah's serious family drama, WAQT-RACE AGAINST TIME. But it was comedy king, Priyadarshan, who seeing their superb chemistry, brought them together and gave much joy and cheer to the audience.
GARAM MASALA, BHAGAM BHAAG, BHOOL BHULAIYAA and DE DANA DAN are classic examples where the two have worked their magic and have sent the audience rolling down the aisles with laughter. And the promos of the upcoming Priyadarshan quickie, KHATTHA MEETHA, which shows some superb interaction between the duo is a clear indication that the two will definitely provide more entertainment and fun.
As of now we can only wait for the film to release to see how Priyan has used this hilarious duo in KHATTHA MEETHA.
