Popular celebrity couples for whom love just wasn’t in the cards
Bollywood has given the world some very memorable love stories indeed. But apart from the stories of couples which have graced the silver screen, the industry seems to be quite a matchmaker, playing cupid to a lot of stars whom have found their better halves through their craft. Be it Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan, Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif, and recently, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, the industry has witnessed its fair share of real life stories that can make people believe in love yet again. But unfortunately, Bollywood is no stranger to messy breakups either. Here are a few celebrity couples who gave romance a whirl, but later decided to call it quits.
Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani
Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani seem to be the most recent Bollywood star couple to fall out of love, as many reports about the duo’s breakup have been making the rounds. In fact, Tiger’s father Jackie Shroff too opened up about the same to TOI, saying that they are still friends.
Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan
Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan met and dated while working together on Imtiaz Ali’s 2020 film Love Aaj Kal. After their breakup, the two were reportedly not on the best of terms, having patched up their differences only recently. Sara also seemed to take a dig at Kartik during her appearance on Koffee With Karan 7, referring to her ex as ‘everyone’s ex’. Kartik seemed to respond by saying that he would never bad mouth any person he had been in a relationship with.
John Abraham and Bipasha Basu
John Abraham and Bipasha Basu starred together in Amit Saxena’s Jism (2003), which also marked the former’s film debut. Although the two dated for close to a decade, they ended their relationship in 2011. John is now married to Priya Runchal while Bipasha married Karan Singh Grover
