Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif may have made a lovely pair in real life but their on-screen outing YUVVRAAJ was a disaster. This is the reason why eyebrows were raised when Yash Raj Films announced their next EK THA TIGER with the two, especially in the times when they are no longer a pair in real life.
"The million dollar question is - 'Will they able to be pull it off in the film?' Despite being actors, it is difficult for anyone to be normal in front of the camera when there has been so much speculation around their personal relationship for all this while. Also, even on screen they haven't been dynamite either with YUVVRAAJ, their only true blue romantic tale, being a disaster," says a trade analyst.
Salman and Katrina had come together in MAINE PYAAR KYUN KIYA as well which was a success but then didn't have any moments of any on-screen chemistry being ignited as it was a comedy instead of being a romance drama. Also, their biggest hit together till date, PARTNER, had Kat paired opposite Govinda.
"Please don't bring in the talk about 'chemistry' without knowing what EK THA TIGER is all about. Do you even know what Salman and Katrina do in the film," says a close associate of the two actors when asked if he feels audience would be deprived of chemistry between the two.
He even grows on to throw a salvo, "A bad film like YUVVRAAJ couldn't have been salvaged by any actor, leave aside the two of them. It is the power of script that brings in chemistry and Yash Raj Films along with director Kabir Khan can well be expected to have done their home work well."
On contacted, Kabir Khan was unavailable for comment. Guess he was busy with his homework.
