Bollywood has been a hot bed for the good, the bad and the ugly. From hook ups to public displays of affection to ugly break ups, Tinsel Town is given us more drama than even the silver screen can. While everyone is busy getting married this month, here’s walking down memory lane to take a look at the worst breakups Bollywood saw through the years.
1. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone
The two were desperately in love and flaunted their affection for each other every chance they got! They started dating when they entered Bollywood together in 2007. However, the rocky relationship ended shortly after, when they parted ways in an ugly and public manner in 2009.
2. John Abraham and Bipasha Basu
They were the hottest couple in Bollywood and dated for more than a decade. When they broke up, love as we know it, was destroyed and hearts were broken all over the country. This was truly one of the saddest breakups Bollywood saw.
3. Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor
This couple was going to be the one everyone wanted to look at and aspire to become. Never shying from public displays of affection, Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor always gave us relationship goals. However, when they broke up, we were left with a wide hole in our hearts which hasn’t healed completely even now.
4. Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia
An actress worth her salt and a businessman with an eye on the future, Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia could not be better suited for each other. However, things turned sour soon when Ness wanted Preity to exit the world of films and Bollywood. Clearly, this didn’t sit well with her and she ended things before they could get worse.
5. Hrithik Roshan and Sussane Khan
Hrithik Roshan and Sussane Khan used to be one of the most powerful and influential couples of Bollywood. They had a wonderful family, a gorgeous home and an envious relationship. Their breakup destroyed the idea of marriage and happily ever afters for all of us, all over the world.
One of the reasons Bollywood breakups heart like they do is because of the deep connection we developed with them through the course of their relationship. If you think we missed out on any other breakups, let us know in the comments below!
Here’s Taking A Look At The Wonderful Kishore Kumar
A cold winter afternoon. A warm, summer night. A night of reminiscing. A day of sorrow. All these things have one thing in common: Kishore Kumar. Born on 4 August, 1929 as Abhas Kumar Ganguly, Kishore Da was one of the few actors of his time who could make people laugh, gasp in surprise and cry all at the same time. While he may have been a talented actor, Kishore Da soon realised his real passion lay in singing.
It was SD Burman who first realised the beauty behind the voice of this great man. Before the weekend truly takes over, here is looking at some interesting facts about this prolific singer!
Despite being such a confident singer, Kishore Da was quite paranoid when it came to money. In fact, rumour is that he never sang until his secretary confirmed the arrival of payment.
2. Always a loner
Kishore Da was perhaps one of the loneliest people in the industry. In an interview, he went so far as to admit that he preferred talking to trees more than to human beings.
3. Married to marriage
Did you know that Kishore Kumar was married not once, but 4 times? First time to Bengali singer and actress Ruma Ghosh, second to Bollywood actress Madhubala and the third was to Yogeeta Bali for two years. Leena Chandavarkar was his fourth wife and the marriage lasted till Kishore Da’s death. Not bad at all, right?
4. Pranks were his middle name
Kishore Kumar loved pranks. When he was in the 5th grade, he realised he did not know the answers in the exam. What does he do then? Fill the gaps with jokes and riddles! There was a board saying “Beware of Kishore” outside his Mumbai’s Warden Road house!
5. Songs inspired from life
Every song sung by Kishore Kumar was inspired by events from his real life. Did you know that he still owes Rs. 5 and 12 paise (he immortalised this fact in that famous song Paanch Rupaiya Barah Anna from the 1958 film, Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi) to his college canteen?
The long, black overcoat, the signature shawl and the deep melodious voice are all synonymous with the universally loved man, Kishore Kumar. If you are as nostalgic as I am, then have a great Friday with some mesmerising memories!
#DEEPVEER Are Getting Married At This Beautiful Location
Deepika Padukone’s and Ranveer Singh’s wedding is the most awaited event of Bollywood. The star duo have been very discreet about their wedding details, which are giving rise to many rumours. According to Filmfare, the duo are going to seal the deal at Lake Como, in Italy.
A source close to the couple has reportedly informed Filmfare, #DeepVeer are tying the knot on November 20th. That is only in three months, we are counting down the days to the event. The wedding is going to be a small intimate affair, the source informed Filmfare, “It’s a very special day for both Ranveer and Deepika which is why they just want the close ones to be present for their wedding ceremony. Mostly it will be their families and a few close friends. The guest list consists of merely 30 people and that’s exactly how these two want it. Italy is a favourite destination of both Ranveer and Deepika so they want to keep their big day more of a private affair.”
The famous singer John Legend got married to Chrissy Teigen at Lake Como. We cannot wait to see the beautiful couple at this breathtaking location.
After the small wedding in Italy, the couple are going to hold grand receptions in India. One will be held in Deepika’s hometown Bengaluru and the other will be held in Mumbai.
The couple were congratulated by Kabir Bedi on twitter.

10 Iconic Sri Devi Looks
Sri Devi was the perfect mix of talent and beauty. She could charm anybody with those big expressive eyes and her attractive smile. Sri Devi pulled off every look, with an exceptional amount of pizzazz. She did it all so effortlessly. Sri Devi was a fashion icon for her generation. On her birthday we celebrate her by looking back at ten of her most iconic looks.
The Hawa Hawai! How can we forget about her most iconic moment till date? The gold dress and the brilliant head piece were definitely hard to pull off, but the only person that could rock it and look absolutely stunning is Sri Devi.
This image has got me awestruck. Her eyes have so much expression, the big lashes only emphasise her doe eyes. The red lips with the red outfit is a classic.
Sri Devi looked like a literal goddess when she donned beautiful jewellery and blinged out outfits in the film Himmatwala.
Her ensemble from the film Chaalbaaz has to be my personal favourite. Sri Devi’s monochromatic outfit, with the big hoops, gives her a badass look.
Sri Devi definitely did make everyone run out and copy her look with a sleeveless blouse and a pearl necklace when she wore it in the film Chandni. She was definitely an iconic trend setter.
The oversized patterned shirt with a trouser worked extremely well with her character in the film Gumraah. The short hair suited emphasised her facial structure, giving her a powerful look.
The innocent look in her film Khuda Gawaah; was completed when she adorned minimal jewellery and paired it with subtle makeup.
Sri Devi was definitely a Roop Ki Rani in the film Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja. The big hair and lashes, with a bold lipstick, complemented her snazzy gown.
In the film Lamhe the beautiful actress emphasises her good looks, with the perfect amount of makeup, and beautiful outfits.
Her character in English Vinglish was fearless and brave, she managed to pull that look off with a lot of class. The minimal makeup and traditional outfit suited Sri Devi very much.
Sholay Facts We Bet Will Make You Watch The Movie Again!
Sholay is perhaps one of the most iconic films in Bollywood to be made. Even 43 years after the film released, it is perhaps one of the most loved movies ever! If you have been living under a rock for the last god knows how many years, then these unknown facts will definitely make you want to watch Sholay!
1 Gabbar Singh’s role
Amjad Khan was never the first choice for Gabbar Singh. Did you know Gabbar’s role was going to be played by Danny Denzongpa? However, the actor turned down the role as he was already shooting for another film at the point. Interestingly, there actually was a dacoit called Gabber Singh from Gwalior, who used to cut off peoples noses and ears if they refused to accept him as the over lord!
2. Ramnagar village
Ramnagar, a village about 50 kms away from Bangalore, is still called Ramgarh because Sholay was shot there! So famous was the film, that even almost half a century later, the original name of the village is long forgotten!
3. True love
Dharmendra was head over heels in love with the Dream Girl, Hema Malini! During the shooting of the film, the actor used to play pranks on the spot boys just so he could have a reason to embrace the Dream Girl over and over again!
4. Dedication explained
Remember the famous friendship song Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra? The song took 21 days to shoot! Incidentally, remember the scene where Rekha lit the diya? That one scene was shot over a period of 20 days!
5. Salim Khan, the man of the hour!
While the dialogue, “Kitne Aadmi The” is still famous the world over, there is an interesting history behind the line. The term was coined by Salim Khan after not one, not five, but 40 retakes!
Forty three years ago, Ramesh Sippy had a brilliant idea. Today, that idea is a moment etched in the sands of time. If you think we missed any Sholay facts, comment and let us know!
Rishi Kapoor And Neetu Singh, A Mesmerising Love Story
Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh (now Kapoor) were perhaps one of the most enigmatic couples both on and off screen. While theirs was not a story that began with love at first sight, it was one which blossomed over the years, slowly and steadily. One of them was Bollywood’s ultimate Chocolate Boy while the other was one of the most sought after heroines during the initial stages of their romance.
At a time and age when dating was frowned upon, Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor made sure they broke tradition and barriers. When they first started dating, Rishi Kapoor was already an established actor, while Neetu Singh was a 14 year old, charming her way into a cut throat and blossoming industry. True to his style, Rishi Kapoor was the ultimate prankster and when he and Neetu came together for their first film (Zahreela Insaan, 1974,) Rishi would torment the living daylights out of her. Despite Neetu’s multiple protests, the young actress could not help but fall in love with this flamboyant casanova. The moment of realisation came to the two when Rishi Kapoor was abroad for a shoot. Within a matter of two to three days, Rishi realised his love for Neetu and sent her a telegram. The telegram read ‘Ye Sikhni badi yaad aati hai.‘ Neetu, who had so far acted as his confidante, could not hide her happiness anymore.
The telegram proved more a foe to young Neetu than the friend she wanted it to be. Neetu’s mother was not entirely happy with the situation, considering the fact Neetu was only 14 and still starting out as an actress. To make matters worse, although Rishi had declared his love for her, he had no intentions of getting married to the young Neetu. Did you know that back in the day, the two were never allowed to go on dates alone? They were allowed to date only if there was a chaperone present!
Things Turn Serious
Things turned serious for the love birds when the family got involved. In a hush hush ceremony (at another friend’s engagement) and with borrowed rings, the young couple was forced to make their love official. What made Neetu so confident with her knight in shining armour was how easily he enveloped Neetu’s mother into their lives, going so far as to invite her to stay even with them!
More than three decades later, this power couple is still going solid and strong, despite all the ups and downs they have gone through. Giving everyone major goals, Neetu Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor are definitely the ultimate power couple, right?
