“Humko Deewana Kar Gaye”
This 2006 Raj Kanwar romantic dramawas the first movie to feature Kumar and Kaif alongside each other as Aditya Malhotra and Jia Yashvardhan, respectively. Kaif’s voice was dubbed in the movie due to her lack of command of Hindi at the time, so her screen presence was more than just a bit stilted. Bad voice dubbing aside, the movie ripped off some key scenes from Hollywood hits, including “Notting Hill” and “Crash.” Anil Kapoor and Bipasha Basu were also featured in supporting roles in the film, but nobody could save “Humko Deewana Kar Gaye” from its box office failure.
In 2007, Kumar and Kaif reunited in Vipul Shah’s romantic dramedy featuring Kaif as NRI Jasmeet (aka Jazz) Malhotra and Kumar as Punjabi munda Arjun Singh. This East-meets-West movie was a huge hit, thanks mostly to the unique love story and sizzling onscreen chemistry between Kaif’s Jazz and Kumar’s Arjun.
Anees Bazmee’s action comedy was Kumar and Kaif’s second movie together in 2007. Kaif played Sanjana, the beloved sister of gangster Uday Shetty (Nana Patekar). Despite Uday’s many efforts, he could not find a good match for Sanjana because of their family’s mobster reputation, and this is where Kumar’s Rajiv Saini enters the picture. After saving Sanjana from a burning building, Rajiv falls in love with her, and the rest of the movie is Bollywood and box office history.
“Singh is Kinng”
Director Anees Bazmee pulled Kumar and Kaif together again in 2008 for this masala flick that had a bit of action, a lot of comedy, and plenty of pyaar. Kumar’s Happy Singh fell head over heels in love with Kaif’s Sonia the first time he ran into her in Egypt, but they parted ways and Happy never told her about his feelings. Through umpteen different Bollywood twists and turns, Sonia and Happy reunite in Australia where Happy is standing in as the “King” of the Australian underworld while his cousin Lucky Singh (Sonu Sood) recovers from a recent head injury. Sonia is engaged and Happy is conflicted, but we all know what ultimately happens. “Singh is Kinng” was a box office hit, and interestingly enough, the upcoming “Singh is Bling” is allegedly not a sequel to this movie. Really?
“De Dana Dan”
This 2009 Priyadarshan comedy brought Kumar and Kaif together in a rags-meets-riches pyaar ki kahani. Kumar played butler/driver Nitin Bankar while Kaif played the wealthy Anjali Khakkad, who demanded that Nitin either make some money or forget about her. Priyadarshan’s comedy of errors ensued in usual fashion, this time focused on the central kidnapping plot that Nitin devised with his friend Ram Mishra (Sunil Shetty) to make the money they both need to win over their lady loves.

“Tees Maar Khan”
Director Farah Khan brought Kumar and Kaif together again in 2010, for amasala flick best known for its “Sheila Ki Jawani” item number. Kumar’s Tabrez Mirza Khan, a con man, is in love with Kaif’s Anya, a struggling actress. Per usual with our favorite masala director’s filmy productions, “Tees Maar Khan” was less about the story and more about the onscreen dhoom, dhamaka, and masti. A box office wonder, this movie cemented co-stars Kumar and Kaif as bankable Bollywood gold.
