Bollywood is filled with gossip, we might seem like the stereotypical old-wives who spread the gossip around but Bollywood without romantic link-ups and affairs and sexcapades is like ocean without water. Sadly, most of the Bollywood love stories remain stories and the celebs involved just say “we’re just good friends”, when asked about a particular person. Oh by the way, this concept was also among the many spoofs in the movie Om Shanti Om. Bollywood saw many “just good friends” and also frenemies through the 100 years of Cinema.
Through the years, Bollywood has been seeing several affairs and link-ups. Some were epic and remained etched onto out memories while some were like those fleeting glimpses one sees through a train’s window. Some were true and some were intentionally created gossips to ensure the actors involved are being talked about. From Raj Kapoor and Nargis to Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina, everyone was the talk of the town but none confirmed their much-spoken about romances.
Bollywood Celebden presents a list of celebs whose link-ups were perhaps more famous than their movies themselves.
Raj Kapoor and Nargis
This is perhaps the most epic link-up ever. They appeared together in 16 of his films. The song Pyaar Hua Iqraar Hua is like an epitome of their link up.
Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha
Their love reportedly started when they were filming for the movie Do Anjaane. They were seen romancing each other in many movies after that like Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Mr.Natwarlal and were last seen together in Yash Chopra’s Silsila.
Rani Mukerjee-Aditya Chopra
They’ve never publicly professed their love for each other but there are a lot of rumours around saying they have already married each other in a secret affair. We’ll never know for sure…
Abhishek Bachchan-Rani Mukerjee
It was rumoured that they were in love. It was also rumoured that they were going to be married but other than romance in movies like Bunty Aur Babli, Yuva, nothing seems to have happened between them.
Bipasha Basu-Harman Baweja
After breaking up with the hunk John Abraham, Bips seems to have found love in the Hrithik Roshan look-alike Harman Baweja.
Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh
The Ram Leela couple seem to have a lot more than onscreen chemistry. While Ranveer is busy emulating the Vodafone dog, following Deepika around; Deepika is busy being silent about it…
Shahid Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra
Now this is perhaps like the Loch-Ness Monster. Sometimes it is seen, sometimes it isn’t; but we’ll never know for sure…
