Although love stories provide a different meaning and purpose to our lives, still, ironically, they often cultivate in secrecy. Most bonds of friendship transform into infinite sparkles of intimacy for a lifetime while others end up abruptly. Bollywood has given an entirely overrated opinion about love through its blockbusters Hum Dil de Chuke Sanam, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and many more. But real love is very different from reel-love that has been depicted for centuries.
Here is a sneak-peak into the most scintillating secret love stories of our favourite Bollywood superstars!
Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor
The courtship between Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor began with the shooting of their film, Kaminey. Just before their patch-up, Priyanka had recently moved out of a short-term relationship with Harman Baweja, with whom she got close during the shooting of Love Story 2050. Priyanka and Shahid’s relationship is rumoured to have lasted for 2 years. However, both of them are happily married and living their great married lives with their spouses in different countries.
Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori
Hrithik Roshan was settled with his childhood sweetheart, Sussanne and had two children with her, when he fell for Barbara Mori. His co-actress in the film, Kites and his on-screen ladylove, Barbara Mori captured his attention during their shooting for the film. Hrithik and Barbara’s affair soon ended when difficulties started to arise between the married couple. However, Sussanne and Hrithik, failing to keep their marriage, went for a divorce in 2014.
Abhishek Bachchan and Karishma Kapoor
Abhishek and Karishma’s love story is the most secretive tale of two unrequited lovers! In October 2002, on Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday, their engagement was announced and it soon became a big occasion for the two most famous Bollywood families. Mysteriously, things changed between the two lovers and their engagement was broken without any explanation. Within a year, Karishma married the industrialist, Sunjay Kapoor but they got divorced in 2016. On the other hand, Abhishek tied the knot with Miss World in 1994, Aishwarya Rai in 2007.
Sridevi and Mithun Chakraborty
In the 1980s, it was rumoured that Sridevi and Mithun had secretly married. During that time, Mithun was already married to the actress, Yogita Bali. Sridevi and Mithun’s affair was full of passion and love. But they broke up as soon as their love’s spark began to fade due to problems arising in Mithun’s marriage with Yogita. Sridevi then decided to move on and finally married Boney Kapoor, the great producer and a father of two. The world came to know about their relationship when Sridevi was pregnant with Boney’s child. In the seventh month of her pregnancy, Boney and Sridevi tied the knot, thereby marking an end to Boney’s marriage with Mona Kapoor.
Bollywood love affairs are a complete mixture of spicy controversies and a bunch of unimaginable rumours. But nothing more could be purer than the feelings of two souls, deeply in love. However, true love is rarely found and equally rare is to find someone who intends to stay and turn a love affair into the sacred knot of marriage.
