Kareena Kapoor added the surname ‘Khan’ to her name when she walked down the aisle Nawab style with Saif Ali Khan in 2012. Shahid Kapoor broke millions of hearts with the announcement of his marriage with a ‘girl from another world’, Mira Rajput. But before beginning their individual ‘happily ever afters’ with the love of their lives, Shahid and Kareena's scintillating chemistry on-screen had made their fans root for their off-screen relationship as well and were hoping to see them as husband and wife. But to everyone’s sorrow, Shahid and Kareena parted ways. (Also Read: Hrithik-Sussanne To Arbaaz-Malaika, Couples Who Ended Marriage Without Washing Dirty Linen In Public)
Speaking about Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor’s breakup reminds us to give you an interesting flashback about this once madly-in-love couple. Woh Jo Kehte The Bichdenge Na Hum Kabhi, Alvida Ho Gaye Dekhte Dekhte… these lines perfectly describe the relationships and breakups for the millennials. And something similar had happened with Shahid and Kareena too. 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.
With over 5 films in their kitty, when Shahid Kapoor was asked why his movies with Kareena Kapoor didn’t do well, in a throwback interview with the Bombay Times, he had said, "Kareena and I looked really bad together in our first couple of films. Jab We Met was just a really good film… the characters worked and people remember that. Besides Sonakshi, I like my pairing with Amrita (Rao), Priyanka (Chopra) and Kareena (Kapoor)." While the universe thought of them as the power pair on-screen and loved their chemistry, it seems, Shahid felt otherwise.
Speaking of whether he would be friends with his exes again and share a warm rapport with them, Shahid Kapoor had said, “It's difficult. It depends on a lot of things, on how you parted and the circumstances you are in now. It depends on the people who you are with now, whether they are comfortable with your being friends with someone you used to be with. It's difficult, but not impossible. Kudos to someone who can do that. But it's difficult and it would be easier to say yes, than to go ahead and do it."
Revealing the kind of boyfriend he was, Shahid Kapoor had once said in an interview with Cosmopolitan that he was very moody as sometimes he used to get all romantic and take then-girlfriend, Kareena Kapoor for long drives, and sometimes, he used to get quite sporty and take her for jet-skiing. Talking about how it was jab Shahid had met Kareena, he had continued, "We were dating within the first week of meeting each other...so you can say that, yes, we hit it off the moment we met!"

Elaborating on what kept their relationship going, Shahid Kapoor had said, "The fact that we have such different personalities. She is extremely outspoken and impulsive. I am the opposite. We fill in each other's empty spaces, balance out each other's strengths and weaknesses, and that's what keeps us together." Commenting on coping with breakups, Shahid had stated, "I would sit in a corner and listen to emotional and heartbroken music to escape the depression and also took the shoulders of friends and family members to be able to handle it."
Having been through broken relationships, Shahid Kapoor had said that breakup is a very dangerous phase in life as one feels their heart has broken into pieces, "You just keep brooding about one individual, and that is your love. At this point in time you do not like your surroundings and people around you as well. You damage yourself unknowingly, and this is shown in Kabir Singh as well. I too got nostalgic while playing this character, it reminded me of my college days. If you like a girl, you feel as though your heart has broken in pieces when she does not talk to you or does not respond. You feel emotional."
A lot has been said and written about Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor’s breakup, and as per a Miss Malini report, it was her mother, Babita and sister, Karisma Kapoor, who were not very fond of their camaraderie. Although Shahid belongs to a well-known filmy lineage, they had felt that their families do not match and go at par with each other. The report also had it that Kareena’s fondness towards Shahid was turning into an obsession as Bebo was then asking all of her directors to cast them together in films.
