Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif
The two are clearly in love. But they won’t talk about it. Fair enough. At the same time, they can’t keep us from doing our job. If last year was rife with speculations, this year was full of evidence (yes, photographic too) and only blindness can refute their romance. In all probability, the two are bound to grow stronger in the coming months and whether they like it or not, we’ll be keen to know more as always.
Hrithik and Sussanne Roshan
The speculations about trouble in Hrithik and Sussanne Roshan's marriage were finally put to rest when the superstar sent a statement confirming that his wife of 13 years has asked for a separation. For the past few months, there had been many stories flying around about the cracks in their marriage. There was buzz about Sussanne walking out of Hrithik’s home. She even made a blink-and-miss appearance at father-in-law Rakesh Roshan’s 64th birthday bash earlier this year.
Salman Khan and Iulia Vantur
Salman Khan and his fascination with fair skin! The bindaas star is never short of link-ups with foreign starlets. The latest in the list is Elli Avram but 2013 also witnessed his unusually frank relationship with the Romanian actress Iulia Vantur. Of course, there were no formal announcements from either end but then pictures speak louder. There's no confirmation on his relationship status but it’s nice to see he's busy 'saving' himself for the right one.
Anurag Kashyap and Kalki Koechlin
Director Anurag Kashyap and his actress wife Kalki Koechlin announced that they were taking time apart from their more than two-year-old marriage. Kalki, 29, who is an Indian of French descent, and Kashyap, 41, noted for his films 'Black Friday', 'Gulal' and 'Gangs of Wasseypur', met and fell in love while working on 'Dev D' in 2009. For a while now there have been buzz about Anurag Kashyap and Kalki Koechlin’s marriage apparently hitting a rough patch. There are hushed whispers yet again in B-town about the couple drifting apart. Rumour wills were abuzz when they both attended Karan Johar’s 41st birthday bash on May 25. Both arrived separately and did not pose for any photographs together.
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone
One never knows what’s going on with Deepika Padukone. The actress, who is currently at the top of her game by the sheer merit of her box-office returns, keeps getting serially linked. As of now, the relationship needle points to her Ram-Leela co-star Ranveer Singh. Going by the chemistry they share -- onscreen as well as offscreen -- we shouldn’t be squarely blamed for stating the obvious. To their credit, they look lovely together too.
Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt
Said Arjun Kapoor about his apparent link-up with '2 States' co-star Alia in an interview, "There is loose talk and Chinese whispers because I hang out with my co-stars. There was a special screening for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and I reached a little early and saved a seat for her so she sat next to me. Despite all these rumours our equation hasn’t changed. I love working and hanging out with Alia."
Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor
Sometimes onscreen love affair translates into offscreen love story. On a similar line, post-Aashiqui 2, Aditya and Shraddha came out as real-life couple. Although the two have been together for sometime now, we never heard a thing about them. No sensational hunt for publicity yet. For a rather young couple, it's impressive to maintain such low profile. They simply don’t talk about their relationship.
Bipasha Basu and Harman Baweja
After quite a long lull of apparent singledom when she admitted to us that she’s 'living the life of a 18-year-old girl', the Bengali bombshell is reportedly in a romantic tango with Harman Baweja. The two are said to be close enough to be called lovers. However, neither of the two have confirmed anything yet but we aren’t bad at guessing either.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma
Since that shampoo ad featuring Virat and Anushka hit the air, there have been tongues wagging all around. Well, why not? The dashing guy who is said to be the heir-apparent to Sachin Tendulkar and the actress who has only grown stronger since her dream debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan make a perfect pitch for imaginative stories. So they did. Besides, nobody nowadays believes 'Oh, we're just friends' that easily.
Gauahar Khan and Kushal Tandon
Irrespective of the drama that goes on in 'Bigg Boss Saath 7', one can't deny that Kushal and Gauhar look adorable together. They not only share a mutual understanding but also seem to be totally in. But only time will tell whether it’s for real. Or not. After all, too many unreal things carry on in reality shows. Let's wait and watch.
Armaan Kohli and Tanishaa Mukherjee
The only thing that comes close to being common to Armaan and Tanisha is an unsuccessful acting career. They differ on almost on all other accounts: he's explosive and moody while she is calm and calculative. At least that's what we figured out from watching 'Bigg Boss 7' they are in. And that's where the Cupid visibly sent that bewildering arrow.
Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukerji
This tie-up is as mysterious as Adi Chopra himself. The painfully reclusive filmmaker is seldom seen, let alone clicked. However, there was a beam of hope in February when Shatrugan Sinha had a Freudian slip (really?) when he referred to the Aiyyaa actress as Rani Chopra. The actor-turned-politician later went on record that he was only stating the truth. All things said and undone, we’ll never know for sure.
