Speaking about Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor’s breakup, it reminds us of the lines, Woh Jo Kehte The Bichdenge Na Hum Kabhi, Alvida Ho Gaye Dekhte Dekhte… as it perfectly describes the beginning and the end of their famous relationship. Shahid and Kareena were quite vocal about their ‘more than just friends’ relationship in media interviews but a few years later, their love had died a slow death and in 2007, the two had parted ways as Kareena had fallen in love with Saif Ali Khan. Their families were equally involved in their relationship and once, Kareena Kapoor’s father, Randhir Kapoor had given a nickname to her then-boyfriend, Shahid Kapoor.

Kareena had said, "It was Shahid who actually said that I should hear this script of this film. He was like, ‘It’s amazing, the girl’s part is amazing and you should do it.’ He kind of actually got this entire project together and both of us ended up doing this film. Of course, then destiny had its own plan and life took its own course. A lot happened in the making of this film and Tashan and our lives... We all kind of went our separate ways. And this beauty of a movie came out of it."
In a throwback interview with the Cosmopolitan, Kareena had talked about Shahid and her relationship. She had shared, "We do the stuff any other young couple does, eating out, watching movies...I really enjoy watching movies. When we get a chance, we go to Fame Ad Labs to see films, we sneak in when it's dark after the movie has started. It's lovely. It's so relaxing. That's what I enjoy most about being with Shahid. I get to be normal and do normal things." (Don't Miss: Kareena Kapoor's Son, Taimur's Unseen Picture From The Hospital Reveals His Weight After The Birth)
