All of them have been the epitome of love, commitment and loyalty.
Here is a list of some of the most famous Bollywood couples who have stood by each other through thick and thin with the same passion.
Dilip Kumar-Saira Banu
It is certainly true when they say couples are made in heaven. Dilip Kumar-Saira Banu’s story was truly written in heaven. The iconic couple got married in the year 1966 when Saira Banu was 22 and Dilip Kumar was 44. Their story continues to melt millions of hearts. In an early interview She had said, “When he smiled at me and remarked that I was a pretty girl, I could feel my whole being taking wing and flying rapturously. I knew somewhere deep within me that I was going to be his wife.”
Shah Rukh Khan-Gauri Khan
They both are synonyms of love. SRK and Gauri have always stood for each other no matter what the situation is. Recently we have seen them showing their strongest side when their son Aryan Khan was arrested in the drug case. SRK has always been quite vocal about his love for Gauri, the time when he came to Mumbai and started looking for Gauri on every beach in the city with just Rs 400 in his pocket shows how much he loved her and even today nothing has changed.
On the sets of Tum Haseen Main Jawan in 1970, Hema Malini and Dharmendra fell in love with each other. Dharmendra was already married to Prakash Kaur and the father of two kids, Sunny and Bobby, at the time. But that didn’t stop him from pursuing Hema and falling in love with her. Initially, Hema did not reciprocate to Dharmendra, as at that time she was not keen on getting involved with a married man. But then, love happened and they tied the knot in 1980.
Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh
The love story between Deepika and Ranveer began on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela… Ram Leela.’ While their on-screen chemistry was undeniable, the couple appeared to have just one eye for each other off-camera. “When Ranveer and I met in 2012, I told him, ‘I see there’s a connection between us,'” DP told Filmfare about their love story. Ranveer and Deepika were in a relationship for six long years.
Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan
Despite having a long age gap the couple has proved that love is above everything. Saif and Kareena fell in love while shooting for Tashan in 2008 after working together on the sets of LOC Kargil and Omkara. “I’d met him previously, but something shifted while we were filming Tashan,” Kareena said in a Humans Of Bombay article in 2019. “My heart was on my sleeve! I fell for him hook, line, and sinker because he was so charming,” she added. Even though the two kept their romance secret, Saif proclaimed his love for Kareena by getting her name tattooed on his forearm in Hindi. Saif later said that the tattoo was inspired by David Beckham’s tattoo for his wife Victoria Beckham and that the decision was made in the heat of the moment.
