Spice up your valentine mood with Bollywood gossips. Here are some love snippets of the famous Bollywood celebrities. Read to know how they met their love, the way they proposed, and all about their love affairs. These stories start from Sunil Dutt and Nargis, Sharukh khan and Gauri, Hrithik Roshan and Sussane to Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai.
Sunil Dutt and Nargis
It is a well-known story. Nargis' luminous aura, and a rare beauty of goodness spellbound Sunil Dutt when he first saw her at a premier. However their love story began at the sets of "Mother India". Sunil Dutt saved a stranded Nargis when the blaze roared out of control during the fire sequence in the film. Sunil Dutt always dreamt of a woman with exquisite beauty and a kind heart. He wanted a wife who would take care of him and his whole family. One day as he was sitting at the studio quite depressed, Nargis, walked in and asked the reason. As a co- star he expressed his worry about his sister who was diagnosed with TB gland. Later that night, after he reached home, he was surprised to discover that Nargis had not only come home and taken his sister to the hospital, but she had also scheduled the operation for the next day. Her concern made him realize that this is the woman of his dreams.
After few days Sunil Dutt finally decided to tell Nargis how he felt about her. One day he offered to drop her home. The scared hero couldn't even utter a single word. At last when he expressed his heart felt desire while taking the turn on Teen Batti - Walkeshwar road, she was numb or rather shocked with the proposal till they reached home. At that moment Sunil Dutt had decided that if she would refuse him, he would pack his bag and return to his village.
Well, Sunil Dutt did get a reply to his proposal after few days, from his sister. A shy Nargis gave her acceptance in front of his sister. Nargis was several years older than Sunil Dutt. Their marriage is of the stuff that legendary love stories are made of.
Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan
Amitabh and Jaya met for the first time at FTII, Pune and then again on the sets of Guddi. Although they were in mutual agreement called 'Love' they never formally dated. They always went out in groups. They married after the success of the movie 'Abhimaan'.
Sharukh Khan and Gauri
Sharukh Khan was awestruck when he walked down a New Delhi road after seeing the most amazing pair of legs in a short skirt. Before realizing to whom it belonged to he claimed he was in love. It was Gauri Khan. He was eighteen and she was fourteen when they first met.
Gauri was cool, classy and sophisticated whereas Sharukh was sloppy, hyper and hated dressing. The couple did have some disagreements in their opinions. It is said that Gauri used to fight, as she didn't like Sharukh to act in films. Sharukh on the other hand was very possessive about his ladylove whom he lovingly calls 'Gaurima' so much so that he would even pick up a quarrel with her even if she let her hair down.
The interesting love scene of this couple is when he combed every street of Mumbai in search of Gauri when she left him all alone in anger. Later when Gauri's family opposed their marriage, he wooed Gauri's family as in the film 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge'. Isn't that truly a Bollywood style?
Hrithik Roshan and Sussane
The Super Hero of Bollywood was bewitched by the beauty of Sussane at a traffic signal in Mumbai. This is Hrithik's side of the story. Sussane's story is a little different. Both of them knew each other since their childhood and they lived in the same locality. However, love had no entry until she came back from US with an Associate Art Degree in Interior Designing, while Hrithik was still practicing his acting skills.
Duggu and his soul mate were shy to voice their deepest feelings for a long time. As they kept meeting often nearly everyday they created a platform called 'Best Friends' first. And then it happened. Neither of them made any verbal commitment but they knew that they were in love.
As for the parents they were ready with the barath as soon as they heard about their relationship.
Sunil Shetty and Mana Kadri
The Bollywood boxer met Mana Kadri in Pastry Palace when he was a longhaired stud who seethed Mumbai streets with his sleek Bike. When Shetty proposed her she initially refused, as he was the dada of the locality and rode jeeps with a bunch of tough guys.
Shetty had his own assets to woo her. He won her with chocolates, sweet letters, champagne...etc (that mostly works with girls). Finally she had to give in for his crazy love. They married after nine years of dating.
Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Dutt
Ayesha first met Jackie Shroff first when she was in school. They met in a record store. Jackie Shroff walked up to her in his heroic style and asked in his sexy voice whether he could help her to choose the best one.
The schoolgirl was at once attracted with his smile. She walked back home and announced that she had found the guy whom she is going to marry. After that small incident they met, dated, married and lived happily ever after.
Tutu Sharma and Padmini Kolhapure
Padmini chucked everything at the age of 21 and eloped with her husband Tutu Sharma (film director). Padmini's parents were against the relationship as he was a Punjabi and she a Marathi. Fortunately it took just a few months for the parents to come around and accept them.
Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai
The happening love story of the year has got its limelight from the start. Both of them were engaged with different people few years back. Nobody ever thought they would ever be in a love relationship. There is suspense, romance, drama and everything that you wished to see in their love story. It is really hard to tell other than the couple when they really fell in love. Some people say that it happened during the shooting of the song 'Kajra re' for the movie 'Bunty Aur Babli'. Whatever the fact the love story has been the talk of every home and a separate column for every news media.
Only after the making of Guru Ash and Abhi became less cautious about being seen together at public places. Abhi proposed Ash after the premier of Guru in Toronto. After they returned to Mumbai, the couple got engaged on January 14 at the Bachchan's residence.
