Breakups are always hard and when you are a celebrity it’s even harder. They have fairy tale romances but like ordinary people, not all of them get ‘happy endings’. Some breakups are amicable while some are full of drama, speculations and mystery. In this post, I am listing few couples whose relationship did not last forever.
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone
This star couple started dating during the shoot of their movie Bachna Ae Haseeno. They went all out and admitted their relationship in public. Deepika even got an “RK” tattoo on the back of her neck. But, their tattoo relation could not stand the test of time. There were allegations from Deepika’s side on a popular chat show that Ranbir was not faithful to her.
Now, both of them have moved on in their lives; while Ranbir is dating Katrina Kaif, Deepika is dating Ranvir Singh. Deepika has gotten rid of her RK tattoo and they even acted in Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani after their break up proving that exes can be friends.
John Abraham and Bipasha Basu
Once deemed as the hottest couple in Bollywood, they broke up after 11 long years of being together. They set the silver screen on fire whenever they came together. They had a much publicized break up where Bipasha said a lot but John kept mum.
Some say the reason behind their split was because Bipasha had a fling with the co-star of her Hollywood film ‘Singularity’, Josh Hartnett and some say that John was two timing Bipasha with his now wife Priya. Well only they know the truth.
Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor
They were in a relationship for 3 years before calling it quits. The news of their breakup surfaced when their movie Jab We Met was about to release. Everyone thought it was a publicity gimmick but, sadly it wasn’t. They always seemed very much in love during their public appearances.
Kareena very happily moved on with and got married to Nawaab Khan while Shahid never really admitted to any of his relationships.
Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai
They started seeing each other in 1999 during the filming of their super hit movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. This celebrity couple parted ways in 2002 after Aishwarya called it off because apparently Salman was too possessive of her, and she couldn’t take it any more.
Salman didn’t really take this breakup sportingly and their breakup drama filled the pages of newspapers for a really long time. There was news of Salman harassing Aishwarya and breaking into her film sets because of which her parents had to lodge a police complaint against him.
Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha
This much-talked about love story has always remained a mystery. Their love story began on the sets of film ‘Do Anjaane’. People even speculated they had gotten married because once in a party Rekha turned with sindoor on her forehead.
While Rekha always boldly spoke about Big B in public, he never admitted anything. Rekha never wanted to be the other woman in Amitabh and Jaya’s marriage. So, eventually this sizzling couple’s love story started to fade. This is one of the most unsuccessful love stories of Bollywood.
Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia
They were a classic combination of top businessman and a top actress and made a lovely pair. Everyone thought they would last long. They even bought a cricket team together. They were in the fifth year of their relationship, when Preity pressed molestation charges against Ness and their entire relationship story was out in the open for the world to see. While Preity openly accused him, he always denied all the allegations.
Jacqueline Fernandez and Sajid Khan
This former beauty queen was in relationship for 3 years with Sajid before they broke up. Jacqueline was still finding her foothold in the industry when they started dating. It turned sour apparently because of Sajid’s too much involvement into Jacky’s personal space and her movie choices. He was a possessive boyfriend; probably that’s why this couple parted ways.
Sarika and Kamal Haasan
Kamal Haasan already had one failed marriage when he started dating Sarika. They were in a live-in relationship in the conservative society of late 80’s. This duo tied the knot after having kids, which was never heard of in those times. Haasan’s flamboyant nature triggered Sarika’s patience level which eventually led to their divorce.
Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon
Akshay had a string of affairs in early 90’s and he was connected to almost all his co stars. But, theirs was one relationship that was talked about the most. Raveena felt quite passionate about Akki and was madly in love with his boyish charms. Apparently, they even got secretly engaged but Akshay’s too much proximity with his co stars and his link-up stories really got on her nerves and in one her interviews she said she doesn’t blame any girl. Her man was not loyal to her. This was the end of this sizzling couple’s love story.
Raj Kapoor and Nargis
A truly beautiful actress and the showman of Bollywood set the box office on fire whenever they came on screen and their off screen chemistry was even more hot and sizzling. Raj was head over heels in love with Nargis and even wanted to marry her but Raj was already married and he couldn’t leave his wife for Nargis. She waited 10 long years for Raj but to no avail. Nargis finally moved on and married Sunil Dutt.
Dilip Kumar and Madhubala
This charismatic couple’s love story is nothing less than of a Bollywood flick. They were so much in love with each other and never shied away from admitting this. They wanted to marry each other but could not because Madhubala’s father was very stern and not in favor of their marriage. And, Madhubala, being an obedient daughter sacrificed her love for Dilip kumar.

fairy tales with a twist.. the affair between Dev Anand and Suraiya has the same legacy..
In the late 1940s, she worked with Dev Anand. While shooting during the film Vidya, she became romantically involved with Dev Anand. The two of them were paired in seven films together, all of which were successful at the box office. In these films, Suraiya was a bigger star than Anand. She fell in love with him during the shooting of a song from the film Vidya—while shooting the scene, the boat they were in capsized, and Anand saved Suraiya from drowning. Their entire affair was conducted in a clandestine manner, with friends like Durga Khote and Kamini Kaushal going out of their way to help in secret rendezvous. On the sets of the film Jeet, Anand finally proposed to Suraiya and gave her a diamond ring worth Rs 3,000. Her maternal grandmother opposed the relationship as they were Muslim and Anand was Hindu, and so, Suraiya remained unmarried. They stopped acting together after her grandmother opposed their partnership.

Another case we wish had never happened was the Hrithik-Suzanne split.
