There is no better time to sing John Paul Young’s popular love anthem — ‘Love is in the air’ than the month of February. After all, it’s the month of love, it’s the month when all lovebirds across the globe gear up to celebrate the most romantic day of the year with gusto – The Valentine’s Day.
And of course, our B-town couples don’t let this occasion slip past either. Irrespective of their hectic schedules, they ensure to make the day special for their loved ones.
Expensive gifts, flowers, candlelight dinners, romantic holidays or just some alone time spent in each other’s company, V-Day for most Bollywood doublets is the celebration of their love and togetherness.
Here’s how some of the popular couples usually celebrate the day of love.
Saif Ali Khan & Kareena Kapoor Khan
For this royal romantic twosome, it’s all about spending time together. Whether it’s at an exotic location or in their cozy apartment, the one thing that matters is that irrespective of where they are or how busy the work calendar may appear, the duo ensures to spend Valentine’s day in each other’s company. Last year, Kareena Kapoor Khan was caught up with the shooting of Bajrangi Bhaijaan but the Nawab’s begum finished her work on time and was home to spend a cozy evening with Saif on V-Day. While this year Saif is busy with the shooting of Rangoon, it is given that the couple will spend Valentine’s Day together.
Bipasha Basu & Karan Singh Grover
They have refrained from commenting on being in a relationship, but the duo is undoubtedly painting the town red with their love. The couple, who have been maintaining the ‘good friends’ tag have been on a holiday spree the whole of last year. Be it the pristine beaches of Maldives, the luxury resorts of Thailand or a quite weekend getaway to Lonavala, they have been almost inseparable. Their constant posts on their social media accounts are the proof of it. Apparently, on V-day last year, these Alone actors went on a spiritual vacation for 11 days at Anandashram, a spiritual center which promises rejuvenation of the soul. Knowing these wanderlust souls, we won’t be surprised to see them celebrating the day of love at some exotic location this year too.
Akshay Kumar & Twinkle Khanna
The playful banter between Mrs.Funnybones and her Khiladi husband Akshay Kumar on twitter is the testimony of the love and affection that this couple has for each other despite being married for several years. And regardless of Akshay’s crazy work schedule, the duo often take time out to spend together and go out on holidays. So undoubtedly, Valentine day’s celebrations are a big deal for Akshay and Twinkle. In fact, last year the Airlift actor had made plans for a romantic gateway to their bungalow in Goa with Twinkle for Valentine’s Day, however, things didn’t go the way as he had planned. Twinkle hurt her foot badly and the doctors had to put a cast on it. But that didn’t stop the couple from spending quality time with each other on V-Day. Hoping the romantic getaway plan works out this year.
Sunny Leone & Daniel Weber
She is one of the busiest B-town gals but she sure knows how to celebrate the day of love. Sunny Leone, who was last seen in Mastizaade ensures to keep herself free on Valentines’ Day and spends 14th February with her husband Daniel Weber, irrespective of which part of the world she is in. The couple who has been married since 2011, usually plans for a romantic holiday or dinner every year. However, last year on Valentine's Day, Sunny and Daniel skipped the usual and indulged in ice skating and eating donuts together at the frozen lake in Sarnia. Wonder what the two are up to this year.
Ranveer Singh & Deepika Padukone
There has never been any official announcement but Ranveer-Deepika’s love affair is the worst kept secret in Bollywood. They have never admitted to it nor have they attempted to hide it, but the fact is they are the Ram-Leela stars are always seen in each other’s company. And when it’s time for the most romantic day of the year, no one can stop them from being with each other. Apparently, last year Deepi darling was shooting for her film Tamasha in Delhi, while Ranveer was shooting for some extensive war sequences for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, making it impossible for the lovebirds to spend Valentine’s Day together. However, Ranveer could not stand the thought of not meeting his ladylove on V-Day and as soon as the shooting was completed, he took the next flight to Delhi to meet Deepika. Apparently, Ranveer Singh took Deepika Padukone to a high-end mall in Gurgaon for shopping following day after valentine was missed. Supposedly, Ranveer plans to compensate for the loss of last year by making some romantic plans this year.
Raveena Tandon & Anil Thadani
For veteran actress Raveena Tandon and husband Anil Thadani the month of February is really special as the duo also celebrate their wedding anniversary in this month. So the celebrations begin on 14th February and extend untill 22nd February. Last year, the couple spent it at Udaipur at the Jai Mahal and Shivniwas Palace, where they had got married, reliving the golden moments. So no doubt, this year too there shall be some grand V-day celebrations.
Shah Rukh Khan & Gauri Khan
Undoubtedly, the Baadshah of Bollywood is as romantic in real life as he is on-screen. He is known to be showering his wife Gauri Khan with expensive gifts every now and then. Two years ago, when Gauri was so engrossed in setting up her new store – The Design Cell, that she had forgotten all about Valentine’s Day, however not our dearest SRK. In fact, he had planned a small little surprise for her; he sent his busy woman exotic flowers, chocolates, and a brand new Mercedes. However, last year Dilwale kept our romantic hero busy on V-day, but Shah Rukh apparently stayed connected with his wifey via face-time during the whole day. Now that is love! Hoping this year, the busiest couple of B-town gets to spend some quality time together.
So, folks while these Bollywood denizens are sure to spice up their V-Day, we hope you guys too have a memorable day with your loved ones. Happy Valentine’s Day!
