When it comes to epic love stories, there are so many reel life jodis that still give romantic die-hards like us #CoupleGoals. Remember Raj and Simran?
But when it comes to real-life too, we know we can count on our B-town stars to give us invaluable relationship lessons. Their stories make us believe in love and happily ever afters.
Bollywood has a pitara of love stories, from ones with a huge age gap to inter-religion marriages to those who were second time lucky... And each story is more beautiful than the other.
Together against all odds, true love is stronger than anything else.
Anushka and Virat (or should I say #Virushka?) have been defining couple goals ever since they started dating in 2013. After a small *hiccup* in their relationship, the lovebirds tied the knot in 2017 and I am a fan ever since! Although Anushka is Virat's biggest cheerleader, she has been accused of 'distracting' Virat from his game numerous times as he is an Indian cricketer who married Bollywood actress and people couldn't afford their favourite cricketer getting distracted. Time and again, these two have emerged stronger than ever, not paying any heed to the rumours and controversies and we love that about them. From borrowing clothes to making adorable public appearances to Virat defending his lady love, all I want in my life is Virushka wala pyaar!
The importance of trust and commitment in a lifelong relationship.
If you thought that our King of romance didn't have a very filmy love story of his own, then you're totally wrong. For SRK, Gauri was love at first sight (awwww!). After meeting Gauri when he was only 18 years old, King Khan was left smitten by her and wouldn't leave her alone, despite Gauri showing no interest.
He followed her to Mumbai and left no stone unturned to ensure that he wins her love! Together, they even managed to rise above the so-called taboo of a Hindi-Muslim marriage and continue to be together for nearly three decades now!
If you are head over heels in love with someone, let the whole world know.
What happens when a ball of energy falls in love? Bhot sara PDA! Ranveer is known for displaying *mega* love for Deepu and ever since then, we are looking for our Ranveer. From coordinating their outfits to Ranveer's adorable and sometimes flirty comments on Deepika's photos, #DeepVeer have raised the bar too high.
That you need a partner who will stand by you no matter what.
Everyone's current sweetheart, Ayushmann Khurrana is a hopeless romantic like us! Married with two beautiful children, a skyrocketing career, it seemed like Ayushmann had it all until Tahira got diagnosed with breast cancer. He stood by her like a rock and together they came out stronger than ever. Tahira has also often spoken about the ups and downs their marriage went through after the release of Vicky Donor, but they were both determined to make it work. If there is one word we could use for this couple, it would be #RockSolid.
All you need in life is love and a partner with whom you can be your crazy self.
The adorable Genelia and witty Ritesh are a goofy couple who can melt hearts with their cuteness. After shying away from media and avoiding public appearances together for the longest time, the cute couple tied the knot in 2012 after 9 long years of courtship! They've proved that pyaar dosti hai and that if you really love someone, nothing can stand in your way.
That true love does not see your age, culture or religion.
Pardesi babu ne iss desi dil ko maan liya hai... When PeeCee crooned to her song in 2013, who would have thought that it would become a reality after all these years?! Priyanka and Nick had quite an extravagant wedding in 2018 and are still giving us #RelationshipGoals every day! Be it their age-gap, different backgrounds or cultures, they've not let anything come in their way. It's this kind of love and mutual respect that we all want.
Love is worth giving a second chance.
Can you believe that both Kirron and Anupam were previously married to other people before finding solace in each other? This just proves that jo hota hain, acche ke liye hota hai! Anupam and Kirron met each other in Chandigarh where they both were in a common theatre group. Anupam's marriage was going through a rough phase and he decided to confide in Kirron, which soon blossomed into a beautiful friendship and later, partners for life!
My heart is so filled with love right now! Can you too feel the love in the air?
