Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor were once considered to be the hit-jodi of tinsel town. They were so much in love with each other that Kareena Kapoor claimed that she would marry her then boyfriend Shahid Kapoor, on national television. Their families had given a nod and marriage seemed to be on the cards. But we witnessed something exactly opposite! The two parted ways and are now living a ‘Happily Married’ life with their respective partners.
Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai’s love saga will never be forgotten. The two superstars were deeply in love with each other, but Salman’s over-possessive nature drove this relationship to its end. At a given point, everyone expected them to tie the knot soon, but they didn’t!
