Our favourite B-town couples who broke our hearts when they parted ways!

Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai

Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan

The love story of the beautiful Ash and handsome Sallu turned sour with Salman allegedly growing possessive about her.  The story goes back to the sets of the film ‘Chalte Chalte’ that SRK was producing and Ash had the main lead. Apparently Salman turned up on the sets and had a huge fight with Aishwarya which might have gotten physical had SRK not intervened. Ash lost out on the movie and things started going downhill for them from then onwards. They broke up in 2002 and have not been able to bury the hatchet till date, allegedly refusing to even attend the same events.

Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan

Childhood sweethearts Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan ended their 17-year old relationship just before their 13th wedding anniversary. They were considered to be the golden couple of Bollywood, who separated in 2013 and their divorce was finalised after a year.  The rumour was that Susanne allegedly  demanded a sum of Rs400 crores as alimony.

Speculation was rife with rumours in the air that Hrithik’s alleged liaisons with first Kareena Kapoor and later Barbara Mori led to the break-up. Others said it was Suzanne’s alleged closeness to actor Arjun Rampal that caused the drift. Sources close to Suzanne also allegedly accused the actor of vying for sympathy after the breakup, making it seem like it was her fault that the marriage didn’t work out.

Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor

It is said that this relationship was severed by the elders, without the couple having much say. The story goes that Karisma’s mother Babita didn’t approve that the Bachchans may have stopped her daughter from acting in movies that she also wasn’t happy with her daughter moving into the Bachchans’ joint household after marriage.  While the industry blamed everyone from the highhanded Babita Kapoor, to an inquisitive Amar Singh, to a domineering Jaya Bachchan, the fact remains the couple chose to sacrifice their love to keep their families happy.

Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia

This could have been a classic case of a rich industrialist and his glamorous trophy girlfriend, only in this case the girlfriend turned out to be a firebrand who knew exactly where she stood. Despite disapproval from Ness’s mother Maureen who very publicly declared that she doesn’t care if Ness gets married to a ‘zebra’, the relationship seemed to be doing okay, till they started off as business partners in the IPL team Kings XI Punjab.

Preity insisted on being actively involved and took the reins of the business firmly, which didn’t go down well with Ness. In 2009 there were rumours of Ness slapping Preity in a party, which eventually led to the relationship, ending. In 2013 Preity Zinta filed a complaint against Ness Wadia accusing him of molestation, threats and abuse.

Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi

After her much publicized breakup with Salman Khan, Aishwarya allegedly started dating Vivek Oberoi and in a state of impulsiveness, Vivek Oberoi slammed Salman Khan in a press conference accusing him of harassing Vivek and Ash. Unfortunately, this did not go down well with the ladylove he was trying to impress. Ash dumped Vivek writing his off as immature. In return, Vivek accused Aishwarya in Farah Khan’s show of being plastic, allegedly implying that she had a ‘plastic smile, plastic heart..plastic everything!’

Sajid Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez

They were an odd couple to start with. He was 42 years old and she 28. Having met while shooting for ‘Housefull 2’, the two were incidentally quite committed to one another with Sajid even having met Jacqueline’s parents. But three years into the relationship, Sajid started to become overprotective, even becoming too possessive at times.

Sources close to both alleged that Jacqueline brought out Sajid’s prudish side, he had issues with everything, her clothes, her roles etc. They finally called it quits preferring to remain ‘friends’ instead of bickering as lovers. As per a report in missmalini.com, Sajid admitted recently that he was able to concentrate better on his film ‘Humshakals’ as he didn’t have someone ‘nagging’ and ‘distracting’ him!

Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone

With the most sizzling chemistry on and off screen, Deepika and Ranbir are true professionals who have not let their baggage affect their careers. They’re probably the only stars in recent history who are comfortable working together and recreating that chemistry after having been in a relationship and breaking up.

Word is that Deepika wasn’t really welcome to become a Kapoor bahu and that Ranbir’s mum Neetu Kapoor disapproved of her, though the stars have always maintained that the differences were personal. It also seemed as though Ranbir moved on much before Deepika did and she was bitter about the breakup. But being the professional that she is, she patched things up and decided to focus on her career. They’ve acted in two films together since their breakup.

Bipasha Basu and John Abraham

They were the hottest models in India and came together during their struggling days in Bollywood. The couple allegedly parted ways long before the split became public.  While many speculated that John had cheated on Bips, others said that it was Bipasha’s closeness to Hollywood actor Josh Hartnett during the making of ‘Singularity’ that caused the rift.

John allegedly started dating Priya Runchal (his wife now) after he separated from Bips, that is when Bipasha went public and accused her ex of cheating on her. They were together for 8 long years and many close to the couple expected them to tie the knot.

Aditya Pancholi and Kangana Ranaut

One of the messiest break-ups in Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut and Aditya Pancholi were involved for 5 years at a time when Aditya was still married to his wife Zarina Wahab. They reportedly broke up when Kangana became involved with Adhyayan Suman. Amidst Aditya’s confession of being abusive with her, he also alleges that he paid her a sum to the tune of Rupees 1 crore to buy a house.

Aditya eventually went back to his wife but also admits that he has had numerous affairs and that he has never given so much or felt so cheated in any other affair. At the end of the affair, he wanted her to return his money.

Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor

While many here expected the wedding bells to go off, only the insiders have a clue as to what actually transpired between the couple. Sources reveal that things happened in tandem as Kareena fell for Saif Ali Khan during the shooting of ‘Tashan’ and that she had grown wary of Shahid’s controlling ways which prompted him to decide who Bebo should work with. The industry insiders have revealed that Shahid’s shaky career path also impacted the relationship as he was reclusive and irritable and the couple often had tiffs.
