Live-in relationships are now becoming very common in India. People no longer raise eyebrows over a couple’s decision to move in together before they are married. Live-in relationships are accepted and are more common than ever before now, especially in B-town. Bollywood’s latest jodi to reportedly live together is the much controversial Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam. Many couples believe that staying together strengthens the bond between partners, preparing them for the next step of marriage. Whether this hold true is yet to be proven, because there are have been some Bollywood couples that definitely could not make it work in spite of living under the same roof:
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif
The Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani co-stars were living together in an apartment in Bandra for quite some time and rumor had it that wedding bells would ring soon too. They recently though called it quits, and have since moved on their separate ways.
Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande
TV’s star couple from Pavitra Rishta began dating on the sets of the show and even moved in together later. If rumors are to be believed, the couple broke up due to Sushant Singh Rajput’s off-screen affair with Shuddh Desi Romance co-star Parineeti Chopra.
Lara Dutta and Kelly Dorjee
The couple were in a relationship since their modelling days and were living together for almost a decade. However, things did not work out for them, which led to their eventual break-up. Lara is now married to tennis star Mahesh Bhupati.
John Abraham and Bipasha Basu
They were Bollywood’s hottest couple when they began dating after meeting on the sets of Jism. Shortly after, the couple moved in together, only to be separated many years later. John is now married and Bipasha is reportedly engaged to Karan Singh Grover.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif
They were one of Bollywood’s most-talked about couples. During the actress’ initial days in Bollywood, she was supported by her beau Salman. The couple were even living together, before things ended between them and Katrina moved on to date Ranbir Kapoor.
Ameesha Patel and Vikram Bhatt
Director and writer Vikram Bhatt was in a live-in relationship with the Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai actress, much to the chagrin of her parents. After five years together, they decided to call it quits.
Anurag Kashyap and Kalki Koechlin
Before they were married, Bombay Velvet director Anurag Kashyap and actress Kalki were in a live-in relationship for almost two years. However, things between them didn’t work out after marriage, and they were divorced some years later.
Aditya Pancholi and Kangana Ranaut
The Pancholi couple was a source of support for Kangana when she was trying to make her mark in Bollywood. As the closeness between Aditya Pancholi and Kangana grew, he left his wife and moved in with the actress. They later went their separate ways due to his abusive nature.
Let’s hope Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam have thought this through and do not end up with the kind of botched luck in love some of their colleagues have.
