The television and entertainment industry is a world within itself. It has its own rules, its own charms and its own drawbacks as well. The major setback of the television industry is probably its fickle nature. Be it TV shows, or relationships, one can never know when they might begin, or even worse, when they might end.
But, there are a few telly couples, who reinstate our faith in love and purity of relationships. These couples have been together for years, and their love is still steady. Nothing has been able to falter their relationships, and we love them for this.
So, here are 11 such telly world duos, who have a beautiful, strong relationship of many years.
Gurmeet and Debina had the most filmy love story. Hear it from the Bong beauty Debina herself:
I came to Mumbai in 2006 for a talent hunt contest and met Gurmeet there. He was also among the top 30 contestants. That's when I saw him for the first time, but then, we were just friends. Later, when I shifted to the city, he helped me in settling down. He was my roommate's boyfriend's friend, and he always used to come along with his friend to our place. While they both chatted, me and Gurmeet used to spend some time together and this went on for days. After a couple of months, my roommate's boyfriend shifted to some other place, and thus he too stopped coming. It was then that we started missing each other and felt that we shared a bond.
The couple soon started dating and got married in 2011. It has been 5 years to their marriage, and the Ram-Sita jodi is still as steady as ever!
Raqesh and Ridhi first met for the shoot of Yash Raj Films’ TV series Seven in 2010. Theirs was a classic case of meant-to-be. When they later met on the sets of Maryada-Lekin Kab Tak, where they were paired opposite each other, they felt an instant ease and comfort with each other.
Our first scene was an intimate scene on a bed, and we broke the bed! We laughed it off and became really good friends, more like buddies. Even the proposal was a conversation, it just seemed like it's happening to us and we are flowing with it. We really believe god wanted us to be together. He's got some plan for us.
Well, God did have some beautiful plans for them, as the couple got married in 2011 after a courtship of one year.

Their journey started as 'just friends' where Aamir got attracted to her beauty and Sanjeeda got attracted to his sweetness. However, they never imagined that their first casual date as friends would lead to a long-lasting courtship. And, since they were actually friends for a long time before their relationship started, it took them a lot of time to realise their love for each other. The two cuties got married in 2012 and by God’s grace, are going strong.
Himmanshoo and Amruta were co-participants on the hit reality show, India's Best Cinestars Ki Khoj, way back in 2004, and that is where it all started. The khoj was for the best actor and actress, but these two ended up finding each other.
In 2004, we’d come from two different cities. We’ve been together till 2015, and we know each other pretty well. We’ve been through a lot of troubles and a lot of good times, but we never left each other come what may. We were friends, then best friends and then got married.
Their 11 long years of courtship finally ended in marriage in January 2015.
The couple, also known as AshVik by their fans was struck by cupid on the sets of their hit show Pavitra Rishta. Rithvik had a crush on Miss Uttarakhand, Asha, and finally proposed to her. The couple of more than 5 years and winner of Nach Baliye 6, is all set to take their relationship to the next level, and are planning to get hitched by next year.
Suyyash and Kishwer met during the shoot of their show, Pyaar Ki Yeh Ek Kahaani in 2010. They were not cast opposite each other, but often met on the sets due to their shoot schedules. They started talking and would end up chatting on the phone till 7 in the morning. After four months of long conversations, the two realised that they had something special between them. Finally they decided to take the next step and declared their love to the each other and to the world. Now after a 5-year long relationship, SuKish (what their fans lovingly call them) are planning to get married in December, 2016.
Sanaya and Mohit met on the sets of their show Miley Jab Hum Tum in 2008. They were playing the romantic leads opposite each other. It was here that they fell in love in real life too. The couple kept their relationship a secret, and announced it to the world after the show was completed. They had been dating for 7 years, before they tied the knot in a beautiful destination wedding ceremony in 2016.
Although a fairly new addition to the couple list, we just cannot miss out DiVek when writing about steady and in-love couples. The cutesy couple met on the sets of the hit show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein where they were not paired opposite each other. But as it is said, jab pyaar hona hota hai toh ho hi jaata hai. This is the case with our much-loved and much-in-love couple. After a courtship of less than a year, they tied the knot in July 2016. And just one look at them is enough to say that this couple is here to stay.
Gurdeep and Arjun first met each other in 2002 for their show, Sanjivani. While Gurdeep was happy in the company of her friends from outside the entertainment industry, it was Arjun who fell for this pretty and reserved girl. After work, they would often go out and that is when they realised that they are very similar. It was the similarities that brought them closer. In the words of Gurdeep:
We were working together and became good friends. We used to meet on the sets and talk about the industry, films and then we would end up going for a film. We got to know that we are so similar, our tastes are similar, the same kind of people, same kind of films. So, you know that the similarities are there and it happened. It is not that one particular day it happened. We just knew that we would be together.
The couple took the vows in December 2006, amongst their families and friends. They have two lovely kids named Meher and Mahir.
They have often been called the first couple on Indian television. Before their serial Kutumb, Hiten and Gauri shot for a commercial for Breeze soap. They then started shooting together and the extrovert Hiten fell for the sweet and introvert Gauri.
But, it took a lot of wooing and convincing by Hiten before Gauri agreed for marriage and they tied the knot on April 29, 2003. They welcomed their twins in 2009.
Sai and Shakti first met during Star One’s infamous show Saara Akaash in 2003. They were not sure about their feelings for each other. But then eventually reality hit them and they accepted their love for each other. After a courtship of merely two months, the couple got engaged in January 2005. They tied the knot the in same month in a Maharashtrian style wedding. The couple who has been happily married now for 10 years were on cloud nine when they were blessed with a baby girl in 2011. She came into their lives after six years of marriage.
Love knows no boundaries and it does not know any language other than that of ‘love’ itself. These couples have proved that true love is still present in today’s time of quick dates and week-long relationships!
