Bollywood is a very strange place. Here, behind those glossy faces,high heels,backless gowns and star powers are hidden the ugliest of spats and worst of controversies which make news for decades. The blockbusters are made on the shoulders of movie stars which look so cute on screen together and teach you a lesson or two about love. The heroine make you bow before their onscreen dignity and the hero make you applause after they stand for injustice so rightfully. We Indians idolise our favourite stars and swear to be in awe with them…. forever! Our very own customised ‘Mini Gods’…Aren’t they? But we are all human at the end of the day. All blood, sweat and emotions! The bollywood stars and their fancy lives are no exception where they also face depression, anxiety, make friends and worst enemies. Their love affairs,break ups,cat fights and rivalries are always splashed across newspapers. But it costs movie maniacs a little too much like we can never decide how John Abraham and Bipasha Basu would have amplified the hotness today in a movie or how legendary romance Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai would have presented before us today? We don’t know and we will never know. And believe me bollywood is filled with such amazing stars which would have created blockbuster history if they’d have agreed to work together keeping aside their personal differences but they won’t. Sigh!
Here are a few infamous bollywood couples who could have weaved a different magic onscreen today if they wouldn’t have sworn to work together.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – Salman Khan
They came closer to each other during the making of ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ in 1999 and everybody was in awe with the love story of two best looking people on the planet. It seemed that it will be a fairy tale with only a ‘happily ever after ending’ but like all the good things come to an halt it ended too soon in 2002 with lot of ugly revelations and allegations like Salman’s rumoured unfaithfulness to Aishwarya and her physical harassment which resulted in legal problems and a lodged complaint against Salman Khan by Aiswarya’ s parents.
And now after the steamy trailers of ‘Ae Dil hai Mushkil’ featuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan with Ranbir Kapoor we so wonder how it would have been with Salman!
Priyanka Chopra- Akshay Kumar
They both created an aura of oomph and unbearable heat by their chemistry onscreen and delivered hits after hits like ‘Andaaz’,’Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’, ‘Waqt’ and ‘Aitraaz’. And it was then their alleged affair surfaced in the media and all of us heard about Twinkle Khanna slapping Akshay soon in public. She banned Akshay from working ever again with Pee Cee and Akshay wrapped up the scene with Priyanka for the sake of his happy married life and two year old son. Akshay Kumar and Priyanka chopra both vowed in public never to work again together and can be seen maintaining the distance in public.
Now that Pee Cee has gone international and working with Hollywood superstars on projects like ‘Quantico’ and ‘Baywatch’ and Akshay is delivering hits after hits like recently released’Airlift’ and ‘Rustom’ we so wonder how they would have defined blockbusters again?
Bipasha Basu- John Abraham
A pair which was made directly by greek gods and sizzled the screen every time they appeared together leaving audiences gasp with their love scenes. Now don’t tell me you can still handle 2003 hit ‘Jism’! They did many hit movies like ‘Aetbaar’ ‘Madhoshi’ ‘Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal’.They were real life couple too for nine long years but then so many things happened and they both gave their versions of separation and split in 2013….not very amicably!
Now that John Abraham is married with Priya Runchal, still looks hot, delivers hits and Internet was filled with Bipasha Basu- Karan Singh Grover marriage pictures and Twitter hashtagged #BipashaKaran trended for months then we can’t help thinking how it would have been seeing them together in a movie again!
Kareena kapoor- Shahid Kapoor
Well, both the kapoors made a very good looking next door couple. We never stopped adoring them and unlike many they never hid their relationships and there surfaced a hot mms too which showed both of them liplocking a little too much.. We thought it would be an inspiration for lovers but who knew they would break up after three year of relationship very ironically during the release of their most successful movie as a pair.
Now both are happily married and Shahid has just become a dad and Kareena’s due dates are in december and she keeps making news even in her pregnancy.Though have been recently featured together in 2016 release ‘Udta Punjab’ but they were not cast opposite to each other and it make sense that they would have hardly shoot together. But is there any chances they’d play leads opposite to each other?
Priyanka Chopra- Shahid Kapoor
The lover boy Shahid found his solace into Priyanka Chopra who at that time was dealing with her own heart breaks. And how satirical that Shahid found his companion into the worst of enemies that her ex Kareena Kapoor ever had! Like we all know the catfights Kareena and Priyanka have with totally digging each other’s life with all those claws they have. But Shahid and Priyanka could not maintain their relationship too and separated amicably. Though they both never revealed the details of their split..of course!
Now they can be seen avoiding all those public appearances together after that. Forget the movie! Though we can never forget their steamy chemistry in ‘Kameene’ Can we?
Rekha – Amitabh Bachchan
We talk about heavenly bollywood pairs which ended up rather brutally and don’t mention the Shanesha himself with his lady love Rekha? Now that would be unpardonable! Whenever they appeared on screen the public whistled and danced in theatres. But who would have thought that they were the soul mates never meant to be together? ‘Silsila’ is their last movie together along with Mrs. Bachchan and Sanjeev Kapoor cast opposite to them.
Amitabh and Rekha proved to be legendary actors over the time and we still see them onscreen with ‘Pink’ being the 2016 release of Amitabh. But we know there is going to be no Rekha- Amitabh pairing anymore. Are you happy Mrs Bachchan?
