Most powerful couples in Bollywood

Which couples today have the most clout in Mumbai, India, and the rest of the world? Here are some of our favourites.

What has greater clout than a Bollywood superstar? Two people in a wasta-filled relationship. So, from long-standing couples to fresh romances, we’ve compiled a list of the most influential power couples in Indian cinema.

Mira Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor

Mira is 13 years Shahid’s junior, and the two met because of their shared religion, Radha Soami Satsang Beas. Their families organised their marriage, which is unusual in Bollywood. They have two children together, and she comes from a prominent New Delhi business family, whereas his parents and step-parents are all well-known entertainers. Mira is not yet an actor, but she is rumoured to be making her Bollywood debut soon.

Ajay Devgn and Kajol

This couple has been together since 1994 and married in 1999, making them one of the longer established couples on this list. Both come from Bollywood families: his father is a well-known action director, and her mother is an actress, with Shobhna as her grandma. They’ve collaborated on a number of projects, some of which have been hits and others which have been flops, and they’re known for being fiercely private and never ‘airing their dirty laundry.’

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan

This duo may not be the most well-known Bollywood power couple in India, but they are perhaps the most well-known abroad, having walked the Cannes red carpet together and driven around with Oprah Winfrey during her visit to India. Plus, Aishwarya has a global following after being dubbed “the world’s most beautiful lady” after winning Miss World in 1994. With his father, the still-prolific Amitabh Bachchan, and his mother, the renowned Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek’s family is pure Bollywood royalty.

Abhishek was previously engaged to Karisma Kapoor (Kareena’s sister), and Aishwarya was previously in a long-term romance with Salman Khan.

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli

What else is as popular in India as Bollywood? Cricket. Because he is the captain of the Indian cricket team and she is recognised for taking on gritty and authentic parts, Virat and Anushka are ranked fourth in our rankings (something that at times feels lacking in Bollywood).

In 2013, they met while filming a commercial for Head and Shoulders (who knew dandruff could be so romantic?). They’re known as ‘Virushka,’ and they married in Italy in 2017. They also support each other: when India loses a cricket match and Anushka is in the crowd, the public generally blames her. Virat, on the other hand, is always by her side and defends her crazy theory.

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh

Ranveer and Deepika, who are set to marry in the near future, have kept the facts of their relationship under wraps, but they look to have been dating for roughly five years. While they are both well-known performers in their own right, they truly shine when they appear together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical epics. Some of Bollywood’s most recent hits include Ram-Leela from 2013, Baijrao Mastani from 2015, and Padmaavat from this year.

Both of them are celebrities, and the way they are naturally joyful with one other, yet never feel compelled to ‘commercialise’ or talk about their relationship excessively, makes their love storey feel incredibly genuine.

Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh Khan

In Bollywood, many relationships fail to stand the test of time, but that is not the case with our top couple: Shah Rukh and Gauri have been married since 1991 (they met in 1984) and, despite the odd rumour that they live different lifestyles, they appear to be in good health.

He is undoubtedly the most famous Bollywood star of all time, and she is a key interior designer in Mumbai high society. They’re also an interfaith couple (he’s Muslim and she’s Hindu), and they met before any of them became famous, so their union looks to be based on love. The couple has three children together, and by all accounts, they are a happy family.
