Some actors met their co-stars on set while filming a movie or found solace in one other’s company when attending an event. Perhaps they met on several transatlantic trips or were introduced by a fellow industry A-lister. These are possibly the most over-the-top Bollywood and Hollywood love stories. Many actors, on the other hand, have avoided the cookie-cutter relationships and found love outside of their industry. We’re looking at 11 power couples that indicate that marriages may be successful even when they’re not in the spotlight. While one star (Shahid Kapoor) married a partner chosen by their parents, another (Sonam Kapoor Ahuja) is guilty of going the millennial route and using social media.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma
Virat Kohli isn’t precisely a non-celebrity, but the Indian cricketer isn’t in the film industry.. Kohli was introduced to Anushka Sharma during the filming of a shampoo commercial in 2013. “I was nervous the first time I met her, so I cracked a joke because I didn’t know what to do,” Kohli admitted in an interview with American sports reporter Graham Bensinger. Sharma was finally asked out by the 31-year-old.
In 2017, the pair married in Tuscany, Italy, in a lovely vacation wedding. “It’s heaven when you don’t notice the passage of time… When you marry a good’man,’ it’s heaven “Sharma expressed his feelings regarding their relationship.
Mira Rajput Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor
The traditional romance of Shahid Kapoor and his now-wife Mira Rajput Kapoor is something that India’s 1.3 billion people can identify to. In 2014, their families set up the Kabir Singh actor and Mira for an arranged marriage.
In an interview with Vogue, the actor said, “The only idea running through my head was, ‘Are we even going to last 15 minutes?'” When they initially met, however, they talked for seven hours. In July 2015, the pair married in a private ceremony in New Delhi. They now have two children, Misha and Zain, five years after that tragic occasion.
Anand Ahuja and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
The Mumbai-based actress, who has long been known for her social media prowess, met her now-husband Anand Ahuja over the internet. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s relationship with the London-based entrepreneur and creator of VegNonVeg, a multi-brand sneaker retailer, began on Snapchat in 2016.
“We were talking on Snapchat one night, and she said, ‘Stop messaging, just call me.’ We talked for two hours that night. Our connection began around trivial matters such as vegan chocolates and sneakers, but we quickly progressed to more serious discussions. Anand once revealed to us that he had “conversations.” They met in London two months later. The couple married in a #EverydayPhenomenal star-studded ceremony in May 2018, with clips of the event gracing our social media feeds.
Dr. Sriram Nene and Madhuri Dixit Nene
Another actor who chose the arranged marriage route is Madhuri Dixit Nene. Dr. Sriram Nene, a cardiovascular surgeon, and an established Mumbai-based star’s storey is one of two people from very different worlds. She married her then-California-based spouse in Los Angeles on October 17, 1999, away from the buzz and bustle of Bollywood.
In India, the secret wedding was followed by a lavish Bollywood celebration. Madhuri and her husband went to Denver, Colorado, for nearly a decade to live life away from the spotlight. The couple now lives in Mumbai with their two boys, Arin and Ryan.
Priya Runchal and John Abraham
Few people are aware that in December 2010, John Abraham was introduced to his now-wife Priya Runchal through mutual friends. Abraham met Runchal, an NRI investment banker, in Mumbai. Runchal has remained apart from the public glare over the years, yet he is frequently seen with John Abraham. As the couple ran into one other at the gym, friendship quickly developed into affection. On January 3, 2014, they married in a small ceremony in Los Angeles.
