Bollywood has no dearth of romance between reel life couples that makes it into their real lives. But how many end in a joyful walk around the fire complete with saat vachan? More often than not, these love stories end with an ex factor….
Ranbir Kapoor–Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan–Iulia Vantur, Ranveer Singh–Deepika Padukone – these are just some of the most talked about love stories of 2013. What made these lovers the talk of the town? What makes their chemistry crackling-hot? Here’s your chance to choose your favourite real-life B-town jodi, the couple that you think will head to the mandap for the saat pheras very soon….Ranbir Kapoor – Katrina Kaif: Now that Ranbir Kapoor’s sister Kareena Kapoor Khan has declared on Koffee with Karan that Katrina Kaif is her sister-in-law and that she plans to dance to Chikni Chameli and Sheila ki jawaani at the wedding, is it too much to expect band-baaja-baraat next year? A little birdie chirped to us recently that Ranboo-Kat are already engaged, but we haven’t yet seen a rock on the secretive Kat’s ring finger. While their love story is rumoured to have started on the sets of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, this couple vehemently denied all reports and declared each other to be just ‘good friends’ (in good Bollywood ishtyle). It was the now-famous Spanish holiday and those bikini pictures that ultimately made it official….unofficially, of course!
Salman Khan – Iulia Vantur: Salman Khan is a virgin and has saved himself for that special someone, he insisted on Karan Johar’s chat show. So is that ‘special someone’ Romanian beauty Iulia? While B-town’s eternal bachelor confessed that he isn’t in the right frame of mind for marriage and also talked about how he enjoys sleeping alone, we have to wonder if he actually expected us to believe what he said. The buzz for a while now mutters that Sallu has found a perfect partner in Iulia, but apparently his family opposed this liaison after learning of Ms Vantur’s divorce. However, we also heard that Salman met with Iulia while shooting in Romania for Kick. Will this love story cross all borders and clear all hurdles? Will love for Iulia make Salman change his mind about marriage?
Ranveer Singh – Deepika Padukone: The reel life love story of Ram and Leela had a sad ending, but the mystery of Ranveer and Deepika’s real life romance continues. While Ranveer has gone gaga about Dippy, the Cocktail gal has maintained a discreet silence. We wonder if this is a deliberate approach that DP has adopted after her rather emotional reaction to questions about her breakup with Ranbir. The duo was caught together in Mumbai, Dubai and elsewhere, on and off the sets spending quality time doing not much. Let’s wait and watch to see if this relationship has more to it than co-star compatibility….
Alia Bhatt – Arjun Kapoor: Alia Bhatt made quite a splash with her debut and soon after the success of Student of the Year, just like in the film, Alia’s love life was rumoured to be complicated. Stories suggested that she was dating Varun Dhawan. Soon Varun’s name was replaced with Siddharth Malhotra’s. And now, with the shoot of Two States, Arjun Kapoor is the hot new contender for her favours. Is this the new young couple of B-town? Will romance fizzle out between the two co-stars, touted as lovers? Only time will tell.
Aditya Roy Kapur – Shraddha Kapoor: Apart from differently spelled last names, the Aashiqui stars have a lot in common and even get joint invitations to dos. Now that is proof enough to make this relationship official, wethinks. While neither Aditya nor Shraddha has come out in the open about the relationship, whatever it may be, the two are often spotted together. Will they make it official? That we wait to find out.
