The honesty shown by Shah Rukh Khan in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is one of the major qualities which everyone seeks in a groom. He had every opportunity to run away with the girl he loved, but he insists on not taking the easy path. Every parent would love a son-in-law who is respectful towards elders, and upholds strong traditional values. And, every girl wants a man like Raj, who loves and respects her and her parents equally.

R. Madhavan (for us, he is the winner on this list), along with portraying an image of being an ideal husband and son-in-law, also sets a new benchmark for all the guys who want to go for an arranged marriage. He portrayed all qualities that a girl and her parents would look for in a groom. He is an agyakari (obedient) Indian boy, who is well-off and well-settled.

He loves the girl despite all her flaws (and not to forget the insults). He is ready to support her, even though her heart roots for someone else. And, when the time comes, he is also ready to fight for her and her family’s honour. Well, with all these qualities, who wouldn't call him perfect husband material?

Akshay's character Arjun is a perfect husband and son-in-law in the film. He is a respectful, gabru-jawan from India, who moves all the way to London to woo his wife. He is even ready to give up his ladylove to the man she has set her heart on. But in the end, he wins her over by his true love and quiet commitment. Arjun shows that true love is not about acquiring the other person, but about dedication and respect towards your beloved. Indeed, enough to sweep any girl off her feet!

#4. Shahid Kapoor In 'Vivah'

How can we foret our favourite chocolate boy? Vivah, as the name suggests, was entirely about celebrating arranged marriages as a deep-rooted part of the Indian culture. This movie inspires numerous traits. For instance, the bond that the groom’s and bride’s families share is exemplary. The groom (Shahid Kapoor) was understanding and sincere.

He is ready to support his would-be bride under all circumstances. He stands by her side when she goes through a terrible accident and even helps her to recover from it. This sort of sensibility and supportive nature are the best Bollywood-inspired qualities that one would look for in a groom.

The hard working and generous nature displayed by Salman Khan aka Prem in Maine Pyar Kiya is simply heartwarming. He agrees to leave all his wealth and luxury to prove his capability to his ladylove’s father. Every parent envisions a secure future for their child, which is why they look for this type of assurance in an arranged marriage. As for all the girls, who would not want a guy who is as committed and passionate as Prem?
