There is no right answer! I am just listing out characters and cute animal photos, I have no pairings already in mind. It is up to you all to figure out who should go with who.
(all dog/cat photos are taken from petfinder.com, they are real animals currently available for adoption. At no kill shelters, don’t worry, they will be happy)
Okay, we are running a pet adoption program. And these people walk into our office:
Aamir in Thugs of Hindostan
Alia in Dear Zindagi
Shahrukh in JHMS
Deepika in Piku
Ashutosh Rana in Humpty Sharma
Shahrukh in KANK post-divorce
Shahrukh in Dear Zindagi
Aamir in Talaash
Shahrukh in Chak De India
Which of the following animals do we give them?
Diogi, male, corgi mix, senior, friendly and always in a good mood
Max, very small, very scared, only likes women
Alistair, Large, playful, a little rough with kids and small animals
Matchbox, very small, limps, scared of strange people
Naomi, puppy, playful, not house broken
Romona, Adult, Female, Witch’s Familiar (clearly! Look at her face!)
Hatti and Bobby Jean, two cat’s who became best friends at the shelter
Stephen Winston III, a bit scared and skittish, likes to stay close to his Human or else close to the ground
Wendell, nerd cat, has asthma and wears glasses
Lil B, bunny, very fluffy
I think Matchbox and Deepika in Piku will fit together
Yes, that seems good. She can fuss about his limp to fill the gap of fussing about Amitabh, and neither of them really like people.
I really don’t think SRK in JHMS should have a pet. Maybe after marriage, but I think the kids would be enough for him. But the SRK in Dear Zindagi should have the fluffy bunny. Alia in Dear Zindagi needs a cat. I think Matchbox should go to Aamir in Thugs of Hindostan.
Maybe Alia in Dear Zindagi should have clingy Stephen Winston the Third? To give her someone to love and cuddle? Alternatively, since she has so many friends, Hatti and Bobby Jean.

Well, Max has to go with Alia, right? He can’t go with one of the guys, and Deepika has a ton of men in her life in Piku. Max will go live a wonderful life being pampered by Alia and her maid, and sometimes Yashaswini or Alia’s mom. And he’ll teach Alia to slow down and be gentle and then Alia will get back with the restauranteur she cheated on with Kunal and Max will learn to open his heart–just like Alia did!
And Romona is clearly Kareena reincarnated and belongs with Talaash Aamir. If he’s mean and weird to Rani she will give him a look, or pee in his shoe or something.
Agree about Matchbox and Deepika. She needs a dysfunctional animal to take care of, and he can be her excuse for not having people over.
“he can be her excuse for not having people over.” – genius.
I was contented with Alia having a kitten, but yes, Max is even better. A true partner for her, and an obsession to fill her time with something instead of men. I did like her with Aditya at the end of the film, but I will also accept getting back with the perfectly nice restaurant guy. In which case I think they should re-meet at a dog park, he also just got a dog, they awkwardly acknowledge that both of them got dogs because they had broken hearts and needed to break a pattern. They agree to be friends but no more, since both of them are taking a dog break from romance. But after weeks of “friendship”, something happens and they decide to try again, but better this time. He won’t put Alia on a pedestal which makes her feel like she has to fall, and she won’t be waiting for him to leave. Oh oh! Restaurant guy’s dog has a medical crisis in the middle of the night and he feels silly, but he calls Alia for help, and she is great. She gets to take care of him and see him be vulnerable, he gets to see her be tough and force the Vet to open up in the middle of the night, and it forever kills that original relationship where they weren’t really honest with each other.
You are so right about Romana and Kareena! I don’t know how I didn’t see it.
I am a little worried about matchbox, I feel like we are giving him to a world of stress with Deepika. He will be at the Vet once a week at least, and she will have to keep changing Vets because they keep throwing her out. He will have a weird ever changing diet as she obsesses over new theories. And he will never be alone, as Deepika starts taking him with her to work, parties, etc. Irrfan will try a gentle suggestion that perhaps the dog would be okay home alone sometimes, maybe even dare to bring the dog a non-organic treat, and Deepika will briefly break up with him and throw him out of the house, until he apologizes and promises to respect her understanding of what the dog needs. If Deepika ever gets pregnant, she will obsess over how this is affecting Matchbox and start insisting he sleep in the bed with them every night because it is easier to worry about Matchbox than being pregnant. Once the baby is born, Irrfan and Matchbox will become bros as they both escape Psycho Demon Mother Deepika. i mean, her kids will adore her and she will be great with them, but woe to anyone else who has to deal with them.

Trying to do some that haven’t been mentioned yet. I think maybe Ashtoush can get Diogi, might lighten him up a little bit, and Chak De SRK can get the kitty best friends because feminism.
Yes! Chak De Shahukh with kitty best friends! That is perfect. He always wants a team to come together. And they would be so cute sitting on the bench with him watching games.
