The dust over Virushka had not yet settled completely when Deepveer came knocking, sending us all into another tizzy. It’s nearly impossible to miss the craze and euphoria surrounding celebrity weddings in our country. More so, if it turns out to be the Bollywood variety.
Simply put, Indians are star-struck people. They love their superstars and the glitz, glamour and entertainment they bring along. So who can really blame them for getting excited about their fabulous love lives? After all, we all need a dash of spice and romance in our lives. Given this Bollywood obsession, Piplsay reached out to movie buffs across the country to find out who their favorite couples are and got back this sizzling hot list.
The Red-Hot Duos
Bollywood affairs have always been our favorite source of entertainment and gossip. We love to know who’s dating who, the pictures, details and the whole shebang. The more famous or secretive the pair the more we speculate.
No wonder then that Bollywood heartthrobs Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are the latest sizzling pair in town according to the Piplsay survey. The young couple who recently made their love official has fans gushing all over them and eagerly awaiting their next big announcement. Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor also set tongues wagging with their unlikely love story. The couple who were extremely hush-hush initially started posting cryptic messages and pictures on social media before the real media got a wind of their romance.
He may not be lucky in love, but Sallu bhai still rocks the charts when it comes to his exes. Following in his footsteps is Ranbir Kapoor, another playboy who set temperatures soaring with his fiery relationships. While these affairs frizzled out much to the dismay of their fans, Ranbir-Deepika and Salman-Katrina still manage to melt our hearts. At least on the silver screen.
The Power Couples
Bollywood cross marriages generate a lot of curiosity, more so if cricket and movies come together. The two have had a mutual love affair for as long as one can remember. Naturally, things got too hot to handle last year when Virat Kohli married Anushka Sharma in the picturesque Italian countryside. Not only have they become internet darlings but going by the Piplsay survey have also dislodged the uber famous SRK and Gauri Khan from the top slot.
Giving the list a Hollywood touch, Priyanka Chopra and her American beau, singer Nick Jonas make a grand entry and that’s hardly surprising. Ever since the world got a whiff of them, their love and life updates have been flooding our timelines and how! The pair’s recent high-profile wedding saw yet another social media frenzy not just in India but in the US too.
While many celebrity spouses are famous in their own rights, Bollywood blue bloods are still those who stay quintessentially filmi. Deepika and Ranveer’s union has now made them the most powerful filmi couple with a string of hits and endorsements tying them together. Surprisingly, Saif and Kareena, despite their talent and pedigree do not impress Piplsay respondents much. So do Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao. The Bachchans on the other hand, both young and old, continue to be popular even with their limited screen presence.
Bollywood affairs undoubtedly attract a lot of attention. There’s just something about famous and good-looking people in love that makes for an exciting treat. So while stars are busy serenading each other on the silver screen, they can’t help but sizzle off the big screen.
