5 Bollywood celebs that got married to their high-school sweethearts!
With Bollywood shelling out new romantic dramas, epic sagas of love and soft music that makes our hearts full, it simply makes one wonder what are these stars’ personal love lives like? And do their love stories also have a happy ending as shown in the movies? Well some of these star couples have shown us how it's done when it comes to love, grand gestures and promises supposed to be kept forever.
Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan
The king of romance and the Badshaah of Bollywood didn't have to do it any other way. He professed his undying love for Gauri the very first time that he met her at a friend’s party. What later unravelled was a true romantic Bollywood movie story, replete with ups and downs with their parents not agreeing to the inter-faith match but them sticking together, nevertheless. Their love is a testament to the nurturing and deep bond they share for each other even after so many decades of being together.
Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal
These high school sweethearts were best friends for a pretty long time before they started dating and thought about marriage. The couple were close friends since 6th grade and started dating when Varun confessed his true feelings for Natasha. How cute! Imagine the OG star going down on one knee and professing his love for the girl who makes his heart skip a beat. Dreamy, right?
Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap
Next on the list are the Bollywood favourites Ayushmann and Tahira, who met for the very first time at a tution class in Chandigarh and later unknowingly and quite surprisingly through their own parents. They hit it off quite well and the rest as they say is all history. The dynamic duo who are often spotted together at various award ceremonies and other star events is all about achieving stellar success with feet firmly planted in the ground.
Zayed Khan and Malaika Parikh
Zayed Khan married his high school sweetheart Malaika Parekh on 20 November, 2005 among close friends and family. According to reports, he confessed his love for his now wife by proposing to her on 4 different occasions. True chivalry isn't dead, ladies! The two continue to be beside each other even after a long standing marriage. The couple has two children. A baby boy, named Zidaan, born in 2008, and second son, Aariz, born in September 2011.
Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff
The timeless and powerful duo of teenage sweethearts Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff tied the knot in June 1987. The actor and his wife professed love to each other in true filmy style only when Ayesha was a simple 13-year-old girl. They are the true personification of the phrase ‘meant to be together’. The two are parents to the young heartthrob Tiger Shroff and daughter Krishna Shroff.
Bollywood isn't just about love stories that vanish when the curtain drops. These couples make us go weak in the knees whenever we see them together and make us believe in true love that lasts forever.
