Inspiring Love Stories from Bollywood

Not only on-screen but also in the real-life, some Bollywood couples are looked upon as the epitome of love. These couples have proved that love transcends everything. Let us have a look at some inspiring real-life couples in Indian cinema.

1. Dilip-Saira

Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu had an age difference of 22 years, but they did not let this come in between their evergreen love. Saira Banu had always been a big fan of the 'King of Tragedy', Dilip Kumar. Her mother, Naseem, offered her daughter’s hand in marriage to Dilip Kumar. They got married in 1966 when Saira was just 22. Saira gave up acting altogether after a few years.

2. Amitabh-Jaya

Considered to be the golden couple of Bollywood, Amitabh and Jaya have been through their fair share of controversies. Yet, they have emerged out with their heads held high, and their love for each other stronger than ever. The tall, dark and handsome, Amitabh Bachchan, fell in love with the petite damsel, Jaya Bhaduri, and they tied the knot on June 3, 1973. At this time, Jaya was already an established actor, while Amitabh had just tasted success with his first solo hit, Zanjeer (which co-starred Jaya). Amitabh further found success as the ‘angry young man’ and went on to become a superstar.
When the couple celebrated more than four decades of togetherness, Amitabh Bachchan had shared a very beautiful moment of the two on his Twitter account. He tweeted one of his old pictures with Jaya Bachchan on his 42nd wedding anniversary and thanked all his fans for their best wishes.

3. Dharmendra-Hema

The original He-Man of Bollywood was a married man, but that did not stop him from being besotted by the Dream Girl, Hema Malini. Their love blossomed on the sets of film Sholay. This couple soon hit a rough patch, when Dharmendra's first wife, Prakash Kaur, refused to give him a divorce.
Hema was wooed by Sanjeev Kumar as well as Jeetendra. In fact, her biographer claims that Hema Malini almost got married to Jeetendra. But, when Dharmendra made up his mind, there was no looking back after that. He, however, did not leave his first wife and chose to convert to Islam, so that he and Hema could get married. Both the actors converted to Islam in 1979, changed their names to Dilawar Khan Kewal Krishn and Aisha Bi R. Chakravarty, and got married.

4. Rishi-Neetu
The original lover boy of Bollywood, Rishi Kapoor fell head over heels in love with his co-star, Neetu Singh. Their reel life chemistry was already a success at the box office and had set the hearts of millions of young fans on fire. It was now the time to do khullam khulla pyar in real life too. Neetu, who was just 21 at the time of the wedding and one of the most sought-after actresses, chose to leave the Bollywood post-marriage.
A lot of people speculated that it was a “forced retirement”, but Neetu silenced the rumour mills saying that it was her personal choice. Neetu made a comeback and starred with her husband in Love Aaj Kal, Do Dooni Chaar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan, and she again dazzled the audiences and the critics with her performance.

5.Shah Rukh-Gauri
Shah Rukh and Gauri’s love saga seems more like a fairytale or like the romantic films, which the actor does. But, this ‘happily ever after’ story had its own highs and lows.
Gauri’s parents were against this match because not only did Shah Rukh belong to a different religion, he was also just a struggling actor at that time with no financial stability. But, Shah Rukh’s charm won them over and the duo had a registered marriage, a Hindu style wedding and also a nikah.


This is a union against all odds. Akshay Kumar, the true Khiladi of Bollywood, was quite the ladies’ man. The rumour mills were always abuzz about his affairs and liking towards Raveena Tandon, Pooja Batra and Shilpa Shetty. His playboy image, however, did not deter Twinkle Khanna from falling in love with him. The wedding bells for this sweet couple rang in the year 2001.

These couples truly inspire. Love truly helps sail through 'rough' times. It just grows and strengthens and these couples have shown us that.
