There are many Bollywood stars who have not only worked their magic on-screen but in real life as well. While some of them kindled their romance on film sets, others started dating way before starring in movies together. Nonetheless, they came out stronger than ever after sharing screen space and continue to serve major #realtionshipgoals even today. Interestingly, all of these fabulous Indian cinema pairings have tied the knot, with yesteryear jodis like Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan and Neetu and Rishi Kapoor having the cutest grandchildren too. From Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover to Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, here is a list of reel to real B-town couples that have graced the silver screen at one time or another before taking the plunge into marriage.
Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover
Karan Singh Grover and Bipasha Basu
The couple featured together in the 2015 horror production Alone. While their sizzling chemistry was appreciated by their fans, the two have been together ever since the release of the film. They didn’t waste much time from the moment they expressed a liking towards each other and were quick to tie the knot within one year of dating. While 2016 saw them wed amongst close friends and family, they are often spotted vacationing together – with their favourite holiday destination being Goa. Need we say, they are two peas in a pod and their on-screen pairing proved the same. With chiseled bods and romantic personalities, they remain happily married!
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone

The hottest and most ‘It’ couple of Bollywood are everyone’s most-favourite. No one can compare to their vacation pictures, shoots and public appearances together. They are just goals! And their couple profile of on-screen blockbusters is no different. Having appeared in Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela in 2013 to the fairly recent Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat, their reel-life chemistry is unmatchable too! They tied the knot in November last year and have been going strong since.
Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan
Saifeena is one of the most loved couples of B-town! Not only after they gave birth to the most adorable baby – Taimur Ali Khan – but because their joined projects have always created waves amongst their followers. They worked together in Kurbaan, Tashan and Agent Vinod, all three of which released prior to their wedding. While Saif and Kareena dated for a long five years before getting married, they promised on forever in October, 2012. Amazingly, the duo did not let religion or the 10-year age gap come in the way. Indeed, they are perfect together!
Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan
Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai
They’ve collaborated on films like Umrao Jaan, Dhoom 2, Guru, Kuch Naa Kaho and Raavan. According to sources, their love blossomed on the sets of the 2005 film Bunty Aur Babli, when Aish was seen performing a cameo in the hit song Kajra Re. But their relationship was confirmed somewhere between 2006 and 2007, when they began shooting back-to-back together and were hence spotted spending a lot of time with each other. The sets of Dhoom 2 were when they started developing feels for each other and finally after the Toronto premiere of Guru, Abhi-Aish became a thing. He proposed to her in New York, they got married, had a daughter Aaradhya Bachchan and lived happily ever after!
Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna
There is no couple that screams ‘picture perfect’ more than they do! The power couple has worked together in International Khiladi and Zulmi among others, but it was actually during the shooting of the former that they fell head over heels for each other. Akshay claimed Twinkle brings out the best in him and liked her for being headstrong, wonderful and talented. They got married in an intimate ceremony of 50 attendees at designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla’s residence. Both of them have two children together.
Kajol and Ajay Devgan
Kajol and Ajay Devgn
They worked in several hits before tying the knot in 1999. The pair has worked on films together in Ishq, Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha, Toonpur Ka Super Hero and U Me Aur Hum. Both actors have previously expressed that theirs was not a typical love story and they just grew together and somehow arrived on the same page for marriage. In 2003, Kajol gave birth to their gdaughter, Nysa. Yug, their son, came seven years later. We know no millennial kid can ever get over the famous pairing of Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan and neither can we but oh well, let’s leave that topic for another day!
Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor
Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh
Their love story must be told! When Neetu started off in the industry and was just a beginner, Rishi was a superstar and a well-established actor. So much so, that he was the heartthrob of many of B-town’s leading ladies and an eye candy to say the least. The first time Rishi and Neetu came together on-screen was for the film Zehreela Insaan in 1974. Since, they have worked together in Besharam, Do Dooni Chaar, Khel Khel Mein, Kabhi Kabhie and more. But not many know that Neetu started dating Rishi when she was only 14 years old. They supported each other through the highs and lows of life and eventually fought against all odds to get married.
Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan
Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan
The iconic couple has worked in several films like Sholay, Mili, Silsila and the ever-favourite Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. After Sholay, Jaya revealed how she was frightened when she first met Amitabh in person. Not only was he towering over her (literally!) but he was the only person on sets who could ever dictate her to do things. And she would do them. She even confessed how she thought she would do anything to please him. Jaya also said that it was not loved at first sight for both of them and they worked towards a strong relationship. Despite rumours of Amitabh’s link-ups with actresses here and there, the two share a strong bond and have two children together – Shweta and Abhishek Bachchan.
All these beautiful pairings left audiences stunned each time they came together on-screen and continue to make waves in their married lives.
