… Khair chhodo!
The Ex – Files – Bollywood Style!
Everyone knows how quickly our favourite celebs go from being friends to foes and back. One day they’re ‘just good friends’ and the next, they’re on the verge of breaking up! It pains us to realize that 2016 has developed some seriously bad juju for love in Bollywood, and it’s only March!
And while the Rajs and the Simrans are living their epic romances in lala land, looks like love in the real world isn’t every celebrity’s cup of tea. Or coffee. Or even wine!
So while Hrithik and Kangana have plastered themselves all over the media with their legal notices and mudslinging, we were just thinking about some of the other lovebugs Bollywood dreamt of and lost in the blink of an eye.
We found some of your favourite couples that broke your hearts when they broke up, so you wouldn’t have to. Sigh. Nostalgia much, anyone?
Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan
The pair got together on the sets of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and they hit it off instantly. Turns out, one of them took this quite literally, with Ash accusing Sallu of domestic violence and what not. We also heard he’d cheated on her! The drama ended in more drama when Ash started dating Vivek Oberoi, who went on to host a press conference in honour of his new flame’s ex! Now that would be one gooood movie to watch, methinks! SLB, you listenin’?
Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut
This one is as fresh as it is mucky. Apparently, Hrithik and Kangna became ‘good friends’ on the sets of Papa Roshan’s Krissh 3, while Hrithik was still married to Susanne! Whaaat? And can you imagine, they kept this as an almost secret for 2 whole years! And now that it’s out in the open, people are just sitting with their popcorn ready to see who wins this game. Sigh.
Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor
Members of 2 of the biggest families in Bollywood, they were one of the most prominent couples at the time. They seemed perfectly happy together. 5 years into their relationship, after they were already engaged, they suddenly announced that they were breaking up. There were rumours that about how the break up was a result of Abhishek’s parent’s disapproval, but no one knows for sure. Goes to show that things are not always what they seem like in the media.
Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha
While their relationship was never made official, they were one of the most well known couples in Bollywood, both on screen and off. While Amitabh was still married to his wife Jaya, Rekha admitted that she and Amitabh were in love. After being in Silsila together, their relationship began to fade. Rekha wanted them to get married, but Amitabh decided to stick by his wife. It was rumoured that they did not even speak at all after the film was made. But but but, his expression was to die for when at a recent awards function bahu Ash called Rekha ‘ma’! Our heart bleeds for these 2!
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma
Indian cricket superstar Virat and Anushka met during a shampoo commercial, and sparks flew! Their PDA got more and more obvious with Anushka showing up at Virat’s matches, and Virat making us all go aww with his social media posts. But alas! They couldn’t last either. Rumour has it, Virat wanted to get married and Anushka didn’t! Role reversal ki toh had hi ho gayi!
Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif
Ranbir and Deepika were so madly in love before that Deepika even got a tattoo of her partner’s initials. After their split, they continued to make movies together such as Bachna Ae Haseeno. They remained close even after Ranbir got together with Katrina Kaif. According to Katrina, this was the reason why her relationship with Ranbir didn’t go so smoothly. She now completely ignores Deepika and does not speak whenever her name is brought up. Seems like love triangles aren’t just reserved for the big screen!
But it’s okay. Bade bade desho mein aisi chhoti chhoti cheezein hoti rehti hai, Senorita!
