Age in a relationship is mind over matter... If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. Age gap between couples has always been a bone of contention, but does it really matter if the feelings are strong? We don't think so and Bollywood is the biggest proof. From veterans, Saira Banu and Dilip Kumar (who have an age difference of 20 years) to our very own Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan (they have an age gap of 11 years), age is clearly no bar for a happy marriage. We list out five Bollywood couples with an age gap of more than a decade, which yet again proves that age is just a number.
The most royal couple of Bollywood, Saif and Kareena, popularly know as 'Saifeena' have set major goals for every married couple. Don't we all wish to look as stunning and royal as they do? Kareena is 11 years younger to Saif. The duo fell madly in love with each other while filming for Tashan and after dating for a few years got married on October 16, 2012. In fact, Kareena had to face a lot of backlash for marrying an older man from a different caste. But her love for Saif stood strong and above everything else.
Who could have thought that Shahid Kapoor will find love in an arranged marriage? That too in a girl who is 13 years younger to him. Yes! Shahid met Mira Rajput through their parents and got married in an intimate ceremony in Delhi. When Shahid met Mira she was a 21-year-old student pursuing English (Hons.) from Lady Shri Ram College. If you are someone who doesn't believe in arranged marriages with an age gap, then this adorable pair is sure to inspire you. They prove that a happy marriage is all about real connection and not numbers.
Remember Saira Banu married Dilip Kumar who was 20 years older to her? Another couple with a 20 year age difference is Sanjay and Manyata Dutt. We don't need to mention how Manyata stuck it out with her husband through all his testing times. This is what matters. And definitely not the age gap. They were both introduced to each other by a producer long back in 2007. And after that, there was no looking back!
A lot has been said about this couple sharing a massive age gap of 27 years! While most people reacted and trolled the couple on social media in various ways, this couple stood strong like a rock. The man who can still make us girls go weak in our knees found the women of her dreams and didn't care about her age or anything else. The couple dated for almost five years and finally tied the knot this year.
When in love, age and time is irrelevant. Dharmendra and Hema fell in love in the year 1970 while they were filming Tum Haseen Main Jawaan. They are a clear example of how relationships are all about maturity and not the age difference. The couple decided to tie the knot nine years later and have been married for almost four decades now.
Again, age is just a number and we proved it, didn't we?
