1. Shahid and Kareena
Yes, they're both happily married to other people now and yes, they both got their fairytale endings. But there was something adorably compelling about these two together and they made us all believe in young love jab they met.
2. Ranbir and Deepika
This couple was almost too much perfection in one place. If Bollywood had a prom, they'd be king and queen. And again, they've replaced one another with other flawless beings, but these photos still make us a wee bit nostalgic.
3. Ranveer and Anushka
Virat is the perfect man and Deepika is the perfect woman, but if these two had made it to their own band, baajaa, and baaraat, it would've been a fun riot, guaranteed.
4. Kalki and Anurag
Indie film royalty! There was a weird vicarious joy in imagining these two rolling their own tobacco and having lofty discussions about art and its implications while sitting in quirky cafés none of us have even heard of.
5. Arjun and Sonakshi
Just LOOK at how much fun these two have together. LOOK.
6. John and Bipasha
In a world of broken relationships and flawed love stories, THESE TWO WERE TOGETHER, STEADY AS A ROCK, FOR A DECADE. When their relationship ended, so did a lot of our faith in a happily ever after. They had EVERYTHING in common and always had each other's backs and, ohmygod, it still hurts.
7. Aishwarya and Vivek
VIVEK TOOK ON BOLLYWOOD'S BHAI (therefore sacrificing his own career) FOR ASH. *sings "Aao Na" and wipes away a lone tear*
8. Ranvir and Konkona
SO MUCH GOODNESS IN ONE PLACE. We miss these two because it was refreshing to see two genuinely hard working, immensely talented people happily in love with one another.
