From surprise weddings to keeping off from social media PDA, Bollywood and TV celebrities have always managed to astonish us with the ways they keep their personal lives private. 'Rumoured couple', 'alleged affair', 'just friends' et cetera are signs of a mystery in a celebrity’s life, which everyone knows about, but no one accepts! But courtesy the massive fan base of B-town celebrities, people are curious to know about their personal lives too.
Following their footsteps, not only in making their professional stand in the industry but also keeping their personal life away from media scrutiny, are the celeb kids. While some star kids feel comfortable being spotted with their ‘special someone’ by the shutterbugs, some are strictly following ‘private is private’ ideology. Putting some light on the love life of famous star kids, here’s a list of who’s dating whom!
Belonging to a star family and one of the most powerful clans of B-town, Navya Naveli Nanda is a sweetheart of her family and is loved by one and all. Even without making a debut in Bollywood and having no plans of making it in future, Navya makes it to the headlines every now and then, especially because of her relationship status.
Earlier it was reported that Navya is dating Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s eldest son, Aryan Khan. Then the reports suggested that she has been dating her classmate, Harry Gillis, from Sevenoaks School in London. And now, as per the latest reports, Navya is allegedly dating Javed Jaffrey’s son, Mizaan Jaffrey. Navya and Mizaan have often been spotted together and are friends from quite a long-time. Every time Navya and Mizaan are together and the latter spots the paparazzi around, he dunks his face inside his t-shirt.
Jackie Shroff-Ayesha Shroff’s daughter and Tiger Shroff’s sister, Krishna Shroff is all grown up and is all set to join the B-town industry. But seems like the filmy flings and linkups won’t be an issue for her, courtesy her steady and happy relationship with her Brazilian athlete boyfriend, Spenser Johnson.
Sometime back, Krishna’s mother, Ayesha Shroff had spoken about her relationship with Spenser. She had shared:
“He plays football and so does Tiger. From athlete to athlete, they bond on that level. Being the elder brother, Tiger is quite kadak with Kishu and needs to like the guy she is with. He likes Spenser. Krishna got him home, introduced him to us. He is cute, well-behaved and very caring towards Krishna. They are happy together. Besides, it’s not like they are talking marriage. Let’s see how it goes.”
The couple is still going very strong and their pictures are just too cute to handle.
After being spotted sitting together at the Lakme Fashion Week 2018 and walking hand-in-hand at the Milan airport, Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor's relationship has definitely set the tongues wagging. With their frequent social media banters and recurrent public appearances, Malaika and Arjun have become the daily fodder for the gossip mills.
The reports suggest that Malaika and Arjun are all set to tie the knot in 2019. Confirming the same to Filmfare in 2018, a source close to the couple was quoted as saying:
“Malaika and Arjun are extremely fond of each other. They have never really spoken about each other, but they are extremely happy in their own personal space. In a steady relationship now, Malaika and Arjun plan to take their relationship to next level and tie the knot next year.”
The ‘wonder kid’, Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff’s son, Tiger Shroff has lost his heart to the nation’s legit crush, Disha Patani. With their impeccable on-screen chemistry in the music video, Befikra and movie, Baaghi 2, Tiger and Disha became one of the hottest young power couples of B-town. Tiger and Disha have always been tight-lipped about their relationship, but their mini-vacations and lunch/dinner dates spotting tell a different tale. Commenting about his relationship with Disha, Tiger had shared:
"Well, I don’t deny my friendship with Disha when I am asked about it. That would be stupid. I handle it with a smile and a dose of evasive diplomacy. But I have to admit, the curiosity about our relationship is definitely helping our film. If people see us as a real-life couple, they will definitely appreciate our chemistry on screen.”
He also stated:
"Frankly, I've not bothered to clarify, and I don't read the [news] papers much. But yes, I really enjoy my time with her [Disha] whenever we get to spend some time. She's a great person and I can relate to her [in many ways] because she's very much like me. She's sort of an introvert just like me and is here to work. It's part and parcel (of being a celeb). But I feel it's interesting to know a little bit about the personal life of the person you see on screen, so it doesn't bother me."
On the other hand, Disha was also quoted as saying:
"I know there is much buzz, awareness and speculation about what’s happening between us. But I want to ask that just because you are spotted with a girl by the paparazzi outside a restaurant, does it become a date? Can’t friends go for a chilled-out time or to eat or have a coffee?"
From being gym buddies to hogging on delicious pizza, sometimes it looks like B-town and nation’s Dhadak, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter are the best of friends and other times, we feel there is something brewing between them. These two star kids made their Bollywood debut together with Dhadak, and ever since then, they are enjoying the love of the industry people, paparazzi and fans. Reports suggest that Janhvi and Ishaan are dating each other and when asked by Karan Johar on his show, Koffee With Karan:
"Conjecture is that you are dating Ishaan Khatter."
Janhvi quickly replied:
"I am not."
Earlier it was reported that Janhvi is in a relationship with her childhood friend, Akshat Ranjan and Ishaan was allegedly dating two B-town divas, Black fame actress, Ayesha Kapur and Student of the Year 2 debutante, Tara Sutaria.
As per the reports, Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha’s daughter, Sonakshi Sinha is dating Salman Khan’s protégé, Zaheer Iqbal. Apparently, it was Salman who played the Cupid between Sonakshi and Zaheer and had introduced them. After hitting off instantly at their first meeting, Sonakshi and Zaheer have been inseparable since then. At Salman’s birthday bash at Panvel in 2018, Sonakshi and Zaheer arrived together and it raised many eyebrows. But soon, Sonakshi refuted all such reports and emphasised that there was no romance brewing between her and Zaheer.
Reportedly, Zaheer is so smitten with Sonakshi that during her birthday in June 2018, he wanted to declare a national holiday for her birthday! Here is the post that he had written for her:
“Sonakshi Jayanti sab ko mubarak ho Happy Birthday Sona. Mera bus chalta toh aaj national holiday hota #whereisthefood #partnerincrime #tubuskhushreh #canyouclickourpicture #aslisona #zahero.”
Sonakshi was earlier in an alleged relationship with Sohail Khan’s brother-in-law, Bunty Sachdev and there were reports that they were all set to tie the knot. But in 2017, the news about Sonakshi and Bunty parting ways made the headlines and when asked about the same, the Noor star stated:
“It's all false. I deal with it by clarifying it. If reports are directed at me and not affecting my family or friends, I leave it or choose to ignore it. But if it does affect my family and friends, I would definitely clarify it and I am really glad that we live in such an age today where it's just one tweet away."
In 2018, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor’s eldest daughter, Sonam Kapoor tied the knot to her long-time boyfriend, Anand Ahuja and amidst the wedding celebrations, his younger daughter, Rhea Kapoor too confirmed her relationship with Karan Boolani. Karan has received an acceptance from the Kapoor clan as well, as he is often spotted on their family vacations and celebrations. Anil Kapoor shared a family picture with his wife, Sunita Kapoor, children, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Rhea Kapoor and Harshvardhan Kapoor, son-in-law, Anand Ahuja and soon-to-be son-in-law, Karan Boolani and captioned it:
“A happy Sunday with the only humans that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Celebrating yet another beautiful love story!”
Soon after, a report of Bollywood Hungama made it to the headlines which stated:
“Karan Rhea seemed in no mood to solemnize her relationship. Anil is not the kind of father who pressurizes his children for anything. Since Rhea wanted to take her time, Sonam got married first.”
The source further added:
“Anil has already accepted Karan as part of his family. He is as close to Karan as he is to Sonam’s husband Anand. Marriage would be just a formality but one that Anil is looking forward to.”
Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal are one of those celeb couples who neither shies away from being papped nor are they afraid to indulge in a little PDA! On Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee With Karan, Varun had finally confirmed his relationship with Natasha and revealed his plans of marrying her. When Karan referred to them as happy "friends", Varun corrected him and said, “couple”. Varun admitted:
“I'm dating Natasha. We are a couple. I plan to marry her.”
A source had revealed to a media portal that Varun and Natasha are all set to tie the knot in 2019. The source shared:
“Varun and Natasha (Dalal) have been dating for years now. Off late, he has become very serious about his marriage plans. He wants to settle down. That’s also why he is not shying away from accepting his relationship on public platforms anymore. Varun is super busy almost throughout the year. So he and his family has picked a November date as of now. It might get pushed to December if any of the shoot schedules take more time but the wedding is happening this year itself. He has even started taking tips from his married friends to know how life is post shaadi.”
But when Pinkvilla reached out to Varun for clarification, he blatantly refused it and deemed the same as untrue.
Though Alia Bhatt always dreamt of marrying her ‘crush’, Ranbir Kapoor, even she wouldn’t have expected that the day will come so soon when her name will be taken with her crush’s name in the same breath. From sneaky social media PDA when Ranbir was given the credit for all of Alia's pictures to attending the parties together, the ‘hook-up of 2018’, Alia and Ranbir have kept us glued to their romance. Even their respective families have bonded well with the lovebirds and their love story only makes us say, Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha. Speaking about their relationship for the first time, Ranbir Kapoor stated to GQ magazine:
"It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to overspeak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space. As an actor, as a person, Alia is – what’s the right word? – flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself. It’s new for us, so let it cook a bit."
Can you imagine dreaming about your crush every single moment, only to date him one day? Well, Alia Bhatt is living her dream with her crush-turned-boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor!
Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta’s son, Junaid Khan has maintained his distance from the paparazzi and has always preferred to stay away from the media glare. Junaid is reportedly in a relationship with his college sweetheart, Sonam Varma. Junaid and Sonam have kept their relationship under the wraps but are often spotted hanging out with each other. Junaid and Sonam are serious about their relationship, so much so, that he has also introduced her to his father, Aamir.
A 2013 report stated a source as saying:
"The duo had been dating since the past year but had kept their relationship under wraps. But now both of them are quite open about their relationship and are seen hanging out with each other. Junaid is currently busy assisting Rajkumar Hirani on his upcoming project.”
Suniel Shetty and Mana Shetty’s son, Ahan Shetty is yet to make his Bollywood debut but he often makes it to the headlines, courtesy his budding relationship with his childhood sweetheart, Tania Shroff. Ahan and Tania’s relationship goes back a long way and she even shares a great bond with his sister, Athiya Shetty. Tania and Ahan frequently post pictures with each other on their respective social media handles and they also take trips together. It is so nice to see Ahan having no qualms in admitting his love for Tania even before he ventures into the industry. Confirming his son’s relationship a few years back, Suniel Shetty had told Filmfare:
“I know his girlfriend. He is a boy. He will have girlfriends. I have told him to respect that girl. Maybe she will be your girlfriend for some time. That is your internal thing but don’t ever talk about it. She has another beautiful side to her life. She is someone’s daughter. Respect every woman you have in your life like she is the only woman in your life. Otherwise aisi haai lagti hai aapko ki aap bacha nahin paaoge khud ko (if a girl curses you, nothing in the world can save you). So whoever it is, respect that girl.”
We wish these young couples of B-town, happiness in their relationship and hope they inspire their fans through their love, just like their parents. In case we missed out on any names, feel free to reach out to us and share your feedback.
