Every now and then we hear about Bollywood stars either getting hitched or breaking up. Some affairs are so strong that the couple end up tying the knot, while a few are simply left heart broken. In this article, we bring to you some of the perfect love stories which remained incomplete.
Raj Kapoor and Nargis
Besides his exceptional acting skills, Raj Kapoor is quite popular for his romantic link up with his leading ladies, as well. His love affair with Nargis is however the most unforgettable one. Apparently, the actor was head over heels in love with the lady but their love story did not materialize as Raj was already married to Krishna and was not keen on divorcing her. Nargis waited for almost 10 years for him but later decided to move on and got married to her co-star from Mother India- Sunil Dutt.
Dilip Kumar and Madhubala
One of the most beautiful woman in the world, Madhubala was in a serious relationship with Dilip Kumar. The duo were pretty open about their affair and walked in public, hand locked. But then what went wrong? Why didn’t they get married? Apparently, Madhubala’s father Attaullah Khan was the villain in their love story. He did not give Madhubala the permission to marry Dilip Kumar. Madhubala, being the obedient daughter accepted her father’s decision. Dilip Kumar had even proclaimed in the courtroom during the court case of his film Naya Daur, “I love Madhubala and I shall always love her till the day she dies.” Today, Dilip-Madhubala are still taken in one breath by lovers.
Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha
This is undoubtedly one of the most talked about, unsuccessful and unforgettable love story in Bollywood. Love began to blossom on the sets of Do Anjaane. Their affair suddenly became public, so much so that rumors had it that Amitabh and Rekha were secretly married too. Further adding fuel to fire, Rekha turned up at Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh’s wedding wearing sindoor and mangalsutra. While Rekha boldly confessed her love for Amitabh, Amitabh never admitted it. Post Silsila, their affair began to fade. Rekha realized she had no future in this relationship and hence put a full stop to it.
Mithun Chakraborty and Sridevi
Bollywood’s disco dancer was madly in love with the hawa hawai girl. It all started on the sets of Jaag Utha Insaan. However, things didn’t go as expected as Mithun was already married to actress Yogita Bali. Sridevi and Mithun never opened up about their relationship in public because of the same reason. However, their affair couldn’t stay hush hush for long. Apparently, Sridevi asked Mithun to divorce his wife Yogita and marry her. Things came to a stand still when Yogita tried to commit suicide. Mithun immediately broke-off all ties with Sridevi and came back to his wife.
Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty
The Main Khiladi Tu Anari couple were in love and even engaged to be married. Things turned sad and sour when news about Akshay cheating on Shilpa with Twinkle Khanna, started doing rounds. Shilpa immediately broke up with Akki and post the release of Dhadkan, she burst out her anger against Akshay. In the year 2000, in an interview to india-forums.com, Shilpa said, “Akshay Kumar used me and conveniently dropped me after he found someone else.” Again, after a long gap, the duo met on the sets of Bigg Boss. Shilpa introduced him, saying, “aapne bahaut stunts kiye hain” for which Akshay promptly replied, “Ji haan! aapse aacha kaun jaanta hain.”
