    13 Bollywood Couples You Probably Never Knew Were A Thing

    Never forget.

    While both Shahid and Sania have denied dating each other in the past, in 2017, Sania made her Koffee with Karan debut and was asked the same question and she said that she doesn’t remember anything about it because “it was such a long time ago”. We don’t know why it didn’t work out between these two but they certainly would have made a great couple.

    2. Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Vaibhavi Merchant

    The director and choreographer were rumoured to be dating and even engaged in 2008, but both have chosen not to speak about their equation. In 2013, in an interview with Hindustan Times, Sanjay was quoted saying, “A relationship has to be given dignity whether you are in it or not. This is one side of my life that I will not talk about.”

    3. Shahid Kapoor and Bipasha Basu

    Shahid and Bipasha were rumoured to be an item back in 2011, because the paparazzi snapped them hanging out with each other a fair bit. Apparently, they hit it off after ending their respective long-term relationships with Priyanka Chopra and John Abraham and like many other rebounds, this one didn't stand the test of time. Barely a few months in, they called it quits allegedly because Shahid lost interest in the new relationship. Ouch.

    4. Deepika Padukone and Yuvraj Singh

    Back in 2008, Yuvraj and Deepika became a couple and several media reports suggested that they were considering marriage. Yuvraj tied the knot with actress Hazel Keech last year, while Padukone is in a #goalsAF relationship with our homeboy Ranveer Singh.

    Ranveer dated Hema Malini and Dharmendra’s daughter in college for a few months and unfortunately there is no information on how or why they broke up. Deol is now married to Delhi-based businessman Vaibhav Vora, and Ranveer is in a serious relationship with Deepika Padukone.

    6. Ranbir Kapoor and Avantika Malik

    Ranbir and Avantika dated as teenagers but then grew out of it. As a teenager, Malik worked in the popular TV show Just Mohabbat and Ranbir, being a cutie, would visit her on the sets to spend time with her. Avantika is now happily married to and has a child with Imran Khan.

    7. Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha

    After their movie R...Rajkumar in 2013, every media report alleged that Sonakshi and Shahid were an item. Although it was suspected to be for the purpose of movie promotions, insiders claimed that the two actually grew fond of each other. In 2014, the two stopped seeing each other and went their separate ways.

    8. Priyanka Chopra and Aseem Merchant

    Before starting her career as a model and becoming Miss World, Priyanka was going out with model and actor Aseem. They parted ways in 2000 and a few years later, Merchant announced a biopic 67 days based on Chopra’s early days, before she became a Bollywood celebrity. Safe to assume that, presently, Chopra doesn't quite like her ex.

    9. Sushmita Sen and Randeep Hooda

    Sushmita and Randeep began dating in 2004 and broke up in 2007. Their relationship was serious, and Randeep has spoken about developing a close bond with Sushmita's daughter Reneé over the course of their relationship. The couple have remained cordial post their split.

    10. Aamir Khan and Pooja Bhatt

    Pooja and Aamir were in an alleged relationship during the time they shot for Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahi. Aamir was also married at the time to his now ex-wife Reena Dutta. Post their breakup, they haven’t been the most cordial, but Pooja claims that they share a “love-hate relationship”.

    11. Abhishek Bachchan and Dipannita Sharma

    Media reports claimed that Abhishek dated model-actress Dipannita, 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.

    12. Jacqueline Fernandez and Sajid Khan

    Sajid and Jacqueline dated for three years before breaking up in 2013. Sajid was bitter about the break up 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 sorta see why the relationship didn’t go the distance.

    13. Ameesha Patel and Vikram Bhatt

    Ameesha and Vikram met on the sets of the former's second movie Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage in 1999 and instantly hit it off. After dating for five years, they went their separate ways in 2008 but chose to remain cordial. In an interview with TOI, Vikram spoke about his relationship with Ameesha being a great friendship and them mistaking it for love.
