Bollywood celebs and their better halves are always under the spotlight because everyone around them are forever curious about their personal lives. Most of the times, it gets difficult for the partner to cope up with the media glare and the persistent intrusion into their personal space. But then, it is a part and parcel of their starry lives. Maybe this is the reason most of them find their soulmates in their field of work, so that it is easy to understand the importance of work-life balance. Especially when you hail from tinsel town, it’s hard to look away from all the glitz and glamor. However, there are a few actors who have successfully broken this barrier and married their childhood love and managed to stick with them too.
Well, the first name that came to our mind was obviously SRK and his lady love Gauri, but we thought of avoiding the mainstream route and speak about seven other celebs who are bound in holy matrimony with their childhood sweethearts.
This VJ-turned actor got a million hearts beating with his performance in Vicky Donor. And right before the release of his big debut, he tied the knot with Tahira. The two were family friends and have grown up together.
Imran Khan and Avantika Malik
Their eternal love story goes back to the days when a young 19-year-old Imran fell head-over-heels for Avantika. He proposed to her in the old-school way – he went down on his knees and asked her out and that’s when the two started dating. The couple got married in 2011 and are now blessed with a pretty little daughter.
Fardeen Khan and Natasha Madhavani
Fardeen was floored by Natasha’s good looks since childhood and gathered the courage to propose to his lady in a flight from London to US. It must have definitely been mushy and cute. But don’t we all love that. This good-looking couple got married in 2005 and have been going strong since time eternal.
Zayed Khan and Malaika Parekh
It wasn’t easy for Zayed to woo Malaika even though the two were high-school friends. Malaika took months to think about the proposal and finally said yes, only to prove the phrase, Pyaar Dosti Hai.
Anyone would fall for Jaggu Dada’s bold and enigmatic personality, so it was only obvious for Ayesha to fall in love at the first sight. They met at a record store and dated for a long time. They married in 1987 and the rest, as they say, is history.
Suneil Shetty and Mana (Monisha Kadri)
Their eyes met a pastry shop, they bumped into each other more than a few times and dated for nine years. Suneil even befriended Mana’s sister to get to know Mana better. The couple is happily married for more than 20 years now.
Bobby Deol and Tanya Ahuja
The younger Deol was smitten by Tanya at an Italian restaurant, where he first saw her. He pursued her for a long time and she finally agreed. The couple got hitched in 1996 and are still going strong.
Don’t you think these stars have very filmy and cute love stories? Whatever said, they have definitely set some major couple goals for all of us.
