V-Day Special: How Did India's Biggest Celebrity Couples First Meet?
Yes, we are all love a great love story – especially when they involve popular celebrities and loads of romance! To get into the Valentine’s Day spirit, read on to know how some of the best loved couples in the country first met each other – basically, what was their ‘once upon a time’!
Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma
Both superstars in their own fields, Virat and Anushka first met inn 2013 when they worked together on a shampoo commercial (check out the super cute commercial below). After this, they quickly became great friends and were often spotted hanging out together.
Amitabh Bachchan & Jaya Bhaduri Bachchan
It all started when Amitabh Bachchan saw Jaya Bhaduri on the cover of a magazine. Like The Big B has revealed in interviews, he was always keen on a woman who perfectly and effortlessly blended together traditional and modern values – and to him, Jaya Bhaduri looked the part. He was also fascinated by her beautiful eyes and thought it would be good to know her better – an opportunity he had some years later, when the two starred opposite each other in the movie Guddi.
Rahul Dravid & Vijeta Pendharkar
The two’s families have known each other for nearly four decades through when Vijeta’s family had briefly lived in Bangalore. Rahul and Vijeta were just children then, but became good friends. Over time, this blossomed into romance – and as we know, the rest is history!
Shah Rukh Khan & Gauri Chibber (Gauri Khan)
This high profile Bollywood couple’s love story had a rather innocent start. Shah Rukh and Gauri met at a high school party in Delhi. Gauri caught Shah Rukh’s eye and he decided to bravely walk across and talk to her. As the story goes, he asked her to meet him for a cola the next day – where they both brought a friend each and split a coke.
Akshay Kumar & Twinkle Khanna:
The two first met during a shoot for Filmfare magazine, in Mumbai, where Akshay developed an instant crush on Twinkle. In one of his interviews with Filmfare, the actor confessed the same and said: “I met Twinkle for the first time during a photo session with Jayesh Seth for Filmfare. I still have that photograph. Thank you Filmfare!”
We say cheers to these lovely couples - thank you for all the love!
