Fairy tale romances are real and who says love restricts itself to reel life only? These 10 Bollywood couples are proving that their real life is as romantic and picture perfect as their reel life! Let’s have a quick look at the couples who are proving the phrase ‘love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance’ right with their endless love even after marriage:
1. Dharmendra – HemaMalini
It was not an easy journey for both the dream girl of Bollywood and Bollywood He-man, but they finally tied their knot in 1980. It was even rumored that they both converted to Islam for a while to get married, as Dharmendra was already married with two kids – Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. The love story which started with the filming of Sholay has been going strong since then, even after more than 3 decades!
2. Rishi Kapoor – Neetu Singh
This couple had an amazing on-screen chemistry that finally led to true romance between the dashing young girl Neetu and the chocolate hero from the powerful Kapoor family, Rishi. Neetu was just 21 when the handsome Rishi proposed marriage to her. Whenever the couple is spotted together, they exude the same aura of love even now. Although she quit movies for a while after marriage, she made a comeback of sorts in recent years.
3. Amitabh Bachhan – Jaya Bhaduri
The list will not be complete without the angry young man and his beautiful, petite spouse. The couple met on the sets of Ek Nazar and fell in love hopelessly. Amitabh was still struggling to establish a career and Jaya was already a well-known face. That didn’t stop them from taking each other’s hand in marriage in 1973. Over the years, the rumor mills have generated a lot of scandals with Amitabh being linked to other leading ladies like Rekha and Sridevi, but this couple has had a standing love that has never been affected.
4. Ritesh Deshmukh – Genelia D’Souza
The youngest and one of the cutest couples of Bollywood, Ritesh Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza, met during the filming of their first movie, ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’ and have been loyal to each other for 10 years before they finally exchanged their nuptial vows in 2012. The happy couple is now expecting their first child!
5. Akshay Kumar – Twinkle Khanna
This is a couple that got together against all odds. Bad boy Akshay was infamous for being linked to his co-stars like Shilpa Shetty, Raveena Tandon, Pooja Batra, and a many more. Twinkle was an epitome of beauty, and was the daughter of yesteryear actors Dimple Kapadia and Rajesh Khanna. They both got married in 2001, and with two wonderful children, their marriage is only getting happier when people assumed it wouldn’t last for a year.
6. Ajay Devgn – Kajol
This couple proved that opposites do attract. Kajol was the chirpiest and most outgoing Bollywood girl, while Ajay was known for his brooding and shy nature. It was a complete shocker when Kajol accepted Ajay’s proposal after their movie ‘Hulchul’ that ignited the spark in the love birds. Now, with two kids and several movies behind them, the couple is happier than ever.
7. Abhishek Bachhan – Aishwarya Rai
While both Abhishek and Aishwarya have had a troubled past with their former relationships, it remains a mystery what actually brought them together. The couple got married after their movie ‘Guru,’ and has been going strong ever since, with the birth of their cute little daughter Aradhya only adding to their bliss.
8. Saif Ali Khan – Kareena Kapoor
Fondly called as Saifeena, this couple is noted to have a great off-screen chemistry rather than their on-screen pull. Her previous heartbreak from Shahid only brought Saif closer to Kareena. The tattoo of Kareena’s name that Saif got inscribed on his left forearm was more talked about than anything newsworthy! In 2012, they had a registered marriage and a wedding ceremony that lasted for a week when Kareena got to live the dream of every young girl, marrying the one you love. The Nawab of Pataudi sure does know how to woo his Begum!
9. Dilip Kumar – Saira Banu
Love knows no bounds. A huge age difference of 22 years did not deter this couple from getting together. Saira had always been a great fan of Dilip, and was the luckiest woman on Earth when she received her proposal in 1966. They both got married the same year.
10. Shahrukh – Gauri
The Bollywood Baadshah married his childhood sweetheart, and nothing has so far been able to even put a dent in their relationship. Though Gauri is not herself a celebrity, she stood by her husband at all times, and their marriage seems unfaltering even when rumors of Shahrukh’s closeness to other women have been floating around. True love trusts and believes.
