The latest example of the arranged marriage trend is 'Haider' star Shahid Kapoor, who will tie the knot with Delhi University student Mira Rajput in Gurgaon today, in an alliance arranged by their families.
The 34-year-old actor surprised everyone with the news of him going for the traditional route. Shahid was in a relationship with actress Kareena Kapoor Khan for over three years and later linked to Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Bipasha Basu.
Superstar Salman Khan, who has always made headlines for his relationships with various actresses, has also expressed his desire to settle down in an arranged set up.

"I am open to arranged marriage. Sometimes, love marriages don't work and arranged marriages do. And sometimes, it's the other way round. It depends on the individuals, how they go about their lives, how compatible they are," Salman had said.
Several other B-town celebrities have also tread the same path. Actress Madhuri Dixit had an arranged marriage with doctor Shriram Nene in 1999. The actress then moved to the US and bid farewell to Bollywood, not for long though. She came to India with the musical drama 'Aaja Nachle' in 2007.

'Masti' star Vivek Oberoi had an arranged marriage to Priyanka Alva, daughter of Karnataka minister Jeevaraj Alva in 2010. The two are happily married and have two children - Vivaan Veer Oberoi and Ameyaa Nirvana Oberoi.
Raj Kapoor too had a traditional arranged marriage. He was married to his distant cousin Krishna Malhotra. Reportedly, his father, Prithviraj Kapoor brought the couple together.

Actress Karisma Kapoor was engaged to actor Abhishek Bachchan, but their wedding was called-off. She later married Delhi-based industrialist Sanjay Kapoor and has two children Samaira and Kiaan. In 2013, the couple filed for divorce.
