In Pics Biggest Bollywood Love Affairs That Went Sour


Sometimes, celeb couples who face trouble in their relationships decide to part ways amicably. But, often break-ups in showbiz are ugly. We look at a few high-profile ones in the latter category.

Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai: They fell in love while shooting for ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. However, rumours about Salman’s tempestuous nature began doing the rounds soon. Numerous stories about their physical fights made it to the press much too frequently.

There was one incident in particular that made headlines. One night, Salman reached Ash’s residence, apparently broke the window panes and later followed her to a film set and beat her. That was enough to kill the relationship

Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma: Their off-screen chemistry was as good as their on-screen one during the ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ days. Sadly, it fizzled out rather swiftly. So much so that at an awards nomination event earlier this year Anushka went out of the way to avoid Ranveer

Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor: After being viewed as the ideal couple for a decent period of time, Bebo dumped Shahid during the filming of ‘Jab We Met’, and chose the suave Saif Ali Khan. Apparently, Shahid was having a fling with another co-star at a time when their relationship was losing fizz

Siddharth Mallya and Deepika Padukone: During their time together, they were extremely comfortable in each other’s company. In fact, they were even spotted getting a bit too cosy during IPL games. However, the couple split inexplicably. Later, the grapevine was that Mallya was busy wooing Sonam Kapoor, which led to Deepika giving him the boot

Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone: For a while, the ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ co-stars were seen as the perfect couple. But, it was too good to last. While Deepika did not directly accuse Ranbir of being disloyal to her, she has often mentioned in interviews that an ‘ex-boyfriend’ cheated on her

John Abraham and Bipasha Basu: The latest in this much-publicised saga is that Bipasha’s alleged fling with ‘Singularity’ co-star Josh Hartnett wedged a final nail in the coffin. Till now, Bips has been very vocal and suggestive about John’s alleged cheating ways even as the latter has maintained a dignified silence on the matter

Bipasha Basu and Rana Daggubati: Just when reports of their alleged relationship were gaining steam – they were spotted getting cosy a couple of times – news came that Rana was spending time with old sweetheart

Trisha in Goa during the Sunburn Festival in late 2011. Bipasha, who was supposed to attend the fest, apparently backed out at the last minute, which set the tongues wagging

Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja: They were more than comfortable in each other’s company during the ‘Love Story 2050’ days, but as soon as the film became a box office disaster, Priyanka distanced herself from Harman even going to the extent of stating that they were never seeing each other. They were recently seen hugging each other at an awards event

Randeep Hooda and Neetu Chandra: The couple who have been in a relationship for nearly three years are the latest to join the ‘splitsville’ club. Buzz is that, with Randeep getting quality work in recent times, he has not been able to give enough time to Chandra, which caused the rift

Riya Sen and Ashmit Patel: The unsuccessful actors were going strong when the now infamous MMS clip began doing the rounds. The couple split immediately after

Saif Ali Khan and Rosa Catalano: After walking out of his 13-year marriage with Amrita Singh, the suave Saif found love in the arms of the Italian model. The relationship did not last beyond three years, with Rosa dropping mild accusations of Saif cheating on her, by not informing her of the fact that he was a divorcee with two children when they began dating

Kangana Ranaut and Adhyayan Suman: After ‘Raaz – The Mystery Continues’, Kangana’s already successful career got a big shot in the arm while the film did little to improve Adhyayan’s prospects. Call it male ego or anything else, Adhyayan distanced himself from Kangana soon after. There were also rumours that Adhyayan’s dad Shekhar Sumar forced him away from the actress

Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty: This was among the most tumultuous of all B-Town splits. After having broken up with Raveena Tandon, Akki fell for Shilpa but eventually ended up marrying Twinkle Khanna. Many years back, Shilpa openly accused ‘Khiladi’ Kumar of using and two-timing her

Vivek Oberoi and Aishwarya Rai: After a three-year relationship, Ash and VO went their ways in 2005. Ash’s continued refusal to acknowledge their relationship publicly hurt Vivek deeply. She had also started seeing Abhishek Bachchan, which was the reason for the split

Lara Dutta and Kelly Dorjee: The duo dated for over eight years, but once Lara began tasting success and Kelly didn’t, rumours began doing the rounds that the latter was getting insecure. Too many link-up stories pertaining Lara and her co-stars also began becoming a point of debate. After a while, both had enough

Mahima Chaudhry and Leander Paes: After being in a steady relationship, Mahima walked out, openly accusing the tennis star of cheating on her with Rhea Pillai. Paes went on to marry Pillai, and the couple even have a daughter

Rakhi Sawant and Abhishek Awasti: The two were madly in love with each other, so much so that they were living in for over a year. One fine day though Rakhi threw Abhishek out of the apartment where they were staying together, alleging he rubbed her the wrong way many times, and had crossed the limit

Dilip Kumar and Madhubala: The much-loved on screen pair were romantically linked off screen as well for nearly five years. However, Madhubala’s torn state between her love and her father Ataullah Khan led her to part ways with Kumar. A court case pertaining to ‘Naya Daur’, in which Kumar testified for B.R. Chopra against Madhubala, spelt the death knell in their relationship

Dev Anand and Suraiya: Co-stars in a few films, the duo was very much in love with each other. However, Suraiya’s maternal grandmother opposed the relationship as both were from different religions. The fact that Suraiya did not muster the courage to oppose her grandmother led Anand to move away from her
