This has to be interesting! Irrfan, given his plethora of clinical performances, is used to accolades while Deepika Padukone has a splendid box office track record. Overlooking the 19 years that separate them, their on-screen chemistry is worth a watch in 'Piku'. Pic/YouTube
Sonam must be used to odd pairings now - be it Abhay Deol, Dhanush or Farhan Akhtar. She was also seen with National Award-winning Rajkummar Rao, who - after portraying a series of intense characters - finally got a chance to showcase his funny side in 'Dolly Ki Doli'. Pic/YouTube
