#1. Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty

Celeb Couples

How can we even forget the chemistry they created in the epic song, Chura Ke Dil Mera. Looks like it actually made Akshay and Shilpa steal each other’s hearts. Akshay and Shilpa were one of the hottest and most talked about couples of the 90s. And while everyone thought they were going steady, and would take the next step in their relationship, their story took a new turn. Akshay was found cheating on Shilpa with her then bestie, Twinkle Khanna. However, Akshay soon married Twinkle Khanna. And Shilpa found love in NRI business tycoon, Raj Kundra with whom she is happily married. They both are happy in their respective lives and even meet each other publicly.

#2. Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma

Celeb Couples

Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma have been one of the liveliest and happening couples of Bollywood. While they vehemently denied dating each other, they could never hide the spark burning between them from the onlookers. When they got back together on-screen in Dil Dhadakne Do, we simply could not stop ourselves from reminiscing their good old times from Band Baaja Baaraat. Anushka has moved on towards Indian cricket’s heartthrob, Virat Kohli and Ranveer, as everyone knows, has found his Mastani in Deepika Padukone.

#3. Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor

Celeb Couples

Who can ever forget the miles they walked together along the lanes of Ratlam in the movie, Jab We Met! Although Shahid and Kareena still continue to be friends, they do not seem to have any love connection between them. Kareena is happily married to chote Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan. And Shahid too, settled down last year amongst much hype with Delhi-based girl, Mira Rajput in an arranged marriage. In fact, Kareena also stated how happy she is for Shahid and added that she knew about it even before the media.

#4. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone

Celeb Couples

Everyone has got their eye on this duo. Ranbir and Deepika were and for some, still are one of the most favourite Bollywood couples. We totally loved watching them romance on-screen and wished they were together off-screen too. Whatever led to their breakup, it did not seem to affect their chemistry on-screen in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Tamasha. Although, both of them have moved on and seem to be happy with their so-called partners now, we still hope for them to get together.

#5. Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai

Celeb Couples

Sometimes, Bollywood movie twists surprisingly happen to take place in real life as well, and that is exactly what happened with Salman and Aishwarya. This B-town couple has had one of those bitter love stories that no one would ever be able to forget. While Aishwarya has moved on and is happily living as the Bachchan bahu, Salman still seems to be in search for the love of his life.

However, due to whatsoever reasons they split, they both found love again and are quite happy with their lives. While John went ahead and married Priya Runchal, Bipasha went on to marry her co-star, Karan Singh Grover.

#7. Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor

Celeb Couples

Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma’s love story was like a fairytale, with two of the biggest families of Bollywood, Kapoors and Bachchans coming together. While there were rumours aplenty for their breakup, the real reason still remains unknown. Undoubtedly, Abhishek could not have got a better partner than Aishwarya. And as for Karisma, well she just does not seem to have a successful marriage on her cards. And now, she has got legally divorced from husband, Sanjay Kapur.

Celeb Couples

The unforgettable and the most unfortunate couple ever, had the most wonderful Silsila on-screen, but failed to create any off-screen. Amitabh and Rekha, the living legends, are the only ones in the film industry who enacted their real life story in their reel lives. While Amitabh never looked back, Rekha just did not seem to move on as she always fails to keep her feelings under wraps. Well, it still makes us wonder why she wears that mangalsutra and sindoor every time she makes an appearance. 

#10. Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh

Celeb Couples

Split ups are not very easy when you have been in a long happy marriage and even have two little kids. But with the Nawab, things are different. Saif and Amrita got a divorce after 13 years of their marriage, and while the world continued to blame Rosa, Saif’s Italian girlfriend, for their split, Amrita chose to remain silent. Nevertheless, Saif finally found his love, Kareena, on the sets of Tashan and we totally love this jodi. As for Saif and Amrita, it only remains a forgotten love story for the world and nothing else.
