Bollywood has had us in awe of all the celebs. We're interested in what they wear, what they eat, who they are dating and much more. Over the years, reading about them in papers, magazines and on the web, we've got involved in their lives. So much so that every time we see romance brewing between two celebs, we root for them.
As it happens with us, they too break up. Their love stories sometimes don't get a happy ending and we might not always find out why. There have been so many couples who split up unexpectedly and we had our own 'Channa Mereya' moment reading about them. They set such relationship goals that we never thought they'd part ways and we'd still like them to get back together. Not possible, right?
So, here's our list of favourite Bollywood couples who broke up and shattered their fans.
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone painted the town red when they started seeing each other in 2007. They had sizzling chemistry both off and onscreen. They looked like they were really in love. The smile on Deepika's face when she saw Ranbir and the way they greeted each other when they met. We all know that their fairy-tale like love story fell prey to infidelity. In fact, Ranbir has gone on record and admitted that he cheated on Deepika. He said, "Yes, I have cheated, out of immaturity, out of inexperience, out of taking advantage of certain temptations, out of callousness. You realise it now when you grow up and you value it more why be in a relationship, why to be committed to someone when you cannot be committed?"
The only time it really hit me that they were just too good together was when I watched Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and Tamasha. They looked great as a couple. Their break up not only broke Deepika's heart but ours too.
Let's admit that we've all watched that Koffee With Karan episode on a loop where Kareena and Shahid came as a couple and scored a 10 on 10 on the compatibility meter test. They were always spotted hand-in-hand at events and made an adorable couple. Both of them openly admitted to their fondness for each other at award shows, interviews and numerous other occasions. They truly were our idea of couple goals. Their relationship had the freshness of a raw, first love. Every time they made an appearance together, their fans would go gaga over their camaraderie. Jab We Met has been one of their cutest movies ever. Despite their split halfway through the shoot of the film, they convinced us that they are one of the hottest couples in B-Town. Of course, they've both happily moved on, but their split in 2007 was hard to digest.
It's safe to say that John and Bipasha were one of the most stylish couples in showbiz. Love blossomed between the two on the sets of Jism (2003), and then there was no looking back. We all kept waiting for them to tie the knot, but the only development that we were acquainted with was an unamicable break-up. Be it John's infidelity to his inability to commit, the two parted ways, leaving us heartbroken. The couple almost dated for a decade. Not only was their break-up hard to live with but the contrasting tales from both of them just added to our heartache. There wasn't one person who could picture them as not a couple, but a future together was not what life had in store for them.
Now Bips is happily married to Karan Singh Grover and John got married in 2014 to Priya Runchal.
Bollywood has had many married couples go their separate ways but the one that came as a bolt from the blue was Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan's divorce. The two announced their divorce a week before his 13th wedding anniversary. They decided to call it quits after 17 years of togetherness that includes four years of courtship and 13 years of marriage. Most of their fans hoped this to be a silly rumour. They have two sons Hrehaan and Hridaan. Post the divorce, it was revealed that the two would be sharing the custody of their kids. We all remember them as the childhood sweethearts who had a steady relationship. Despite numerous speculations, the real reason behind their divorce still remains a secret. While we're recovering from this traumatic news, we're still hoping they'd get back together.
While other breakups had us slowly recovering, Ranbir and Katrina's split scarred us. While there were rumours about them tying the knot, reports of the two going separate ways shocked everyone. They undoubtedly were the IT couple in Bollywood. Katrina's camaraderie with Neetu Kapoor, Kareena's hints on Koffee With Karan and their Ibiza pictures had us believe that they were meant to be. Not only did they looked good together off screen but also was a hit jodi onscreen. They started getting close on the sets of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and soon became one of Bollywood's favourite pair. Their sudden break up caused quite a stir in the industry. Both Ranbir and Katrina maintained stoic silence about their split leaving us fans guessing what the cause might be. But somehow it looks like they've moved on faster than we ever will. In fact, Ranbir's new love Alia is Katrina's BFF and the actresses still share a strong bond.
