Posted on

1. Ranveer Singh and Ahaana Deol

Singh dated Hema Malini and Dharmedra's daughter in college and nobody knows when or why they broke up. Deol is now married to Delhi-based businessman Vaibhav Vora, and Singh is in a committed relationship with Deepika Padukone.

2. Deepika Padukone and Yuvraj Singh

Back in 2008, Singh and Padukone became somewhat of an item and media reports alleged that they might get married. Singh is now engaged to actress Hazel Keech while Padukone is in a #goals AF relationship with our homeboy Ranveer Singh.

3. Ranbir Kapoor and Avantika Malik

Theirs was a teenage romance but they grew out of it. As a teenager, Malik worked in the popular TV show Just Mohabbat and Kapoor used to visit her on the sets to spend time with her. Malik is now happily married to Imran Khan and they have a girl together.

4. Jacqueline Fernandez and Sajid Khan

Khan and Fernandez dated for three years and they broke up in 2013. Khan was pretty sour about the break and made this sexist statement in an interview to TOI – "When you don’t have a woman in your life, you don’t have someone constantly nagging you, so you end up working better and are more focused." You can kinda see why this relationship didn't last.


5. Sushmita Sen and Randeep Hooda

Sen and Hooda began dating in 2004 but broke up after three years. Hooda claims over the course of his relationship he became close to Sen's daughter Reneé. The couple have remained cordial post their breakup.

6. Priyanka Chopra and Aseem Merchant

Right before she started off a career in modelling, Chopra started going out with Merchant, who was also a model. They broke up in 2000 and a few years later Merchant announced a biopic 67 days based on Chopra's early days before she became a star. Safe to assume that presently, Chopra hates Merchant's guts.

7. Aamir Khan and Pooja Bhatt

Bhatt and Khan were in an alleged relationship after they worked in Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahi. Post their breakup, they haven't been the most cordial but Bhatt claims that their's has been a "love-hate relationship".

8. Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon

Back in 1999, in an interview to Stardust, Tandon claimed that she and Kumar got secretly engaged in a temple but due to his fear of losing his female fan-following, Kumar never admitted to making their relationship public. After their breakup, Kumar settled down with Twinkle Khanna in 2001 and Tandon tied the knot with Anil Thadani in 2004.


9. Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan

They met while shooting for Kismet Konnection in 2008 and broke up barely one year into the relationship. In an interview with TOI, Vidya said, "If someone who matters to you talks you down, it can break you. That someone whose approval mattered to me started to constantly find faults with me. It started reflecting on me." Balan is now married to Disney India CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur and Kapoor is expecting his first chid with his wife Mira Rajput.

10. Abhishek Bachchan and Dipannita Sharma

Media reported that Bachchan dated Sharma, who is an actress, briefly before getting married to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In an interview with TOI, Sharma claimed that Abhishek was "never a friend" and that the time they had together is of "no importance" to her. Harsh.

11. And of course, Rani Mukerji and Govinda.


Media reports allege that Govinda began an extra-marital relationship with Mukerji after their movie Hadh Kar Di Aapne in 2000. Govinda decided to stay with his wife Sunita and break up with Mukerji. She is now happily married to Aditya Chopra.
