The two appeared in films such as Sherni, Jawab Hum Denge and Chaand Ka Tukdaa together.

When two of India's biggest superstars united on screen, magic happened, although just four times. Rajesh Khanna, often regarded as the most exceptional actor of his time, paired up with Sridevi for Naya Qadam in 1984. The two then went on to act in Maqsad, Masterji and Nazrana.

Sridevi and Anil Kapoor
Sridevi and Anil Kapoor, one of the most popular couples of Indian cinema could easily be called a hit-making machine in the 90s.

The two starred in acclaimed films like Lamhe, Mr India, Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja among others.
