In the spirit of the latest song released from Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Move On, here’s a look at the Bollywood Couples That Moved On!
1. Ranbir Kapoor & Deepika Padukone
A couple who just couldn’t keep their affair a secret, split up soon after it was rumored that Mummy Neetu Kapoor wasn’t quite approving of the relationship. Being a Mama’s boy, Ranbir steadily obeyed his Mom’s orders. While Ranbir moved on, Deepika’s recalling of the whole ordeal made for some saucy viewing on ‘Koffee With Karan’.
2. Saif Ali Khan & Amrita Singh
Splitsville is often difficult when you have a long happy marriage with two beautiful kids, but Chote Nawab moved on with his megawatt smile without any repercussions from both ex-wife and new partner and made sure everyone sees a happy ending.
3. Abhishek Bachchan & Karishma Kapoor
A lengthy romantic affair whose engagement and subsequent split was as short-lived as the running shows of Mr. X. While moving on must not have been easy, it certainly was redeeming as AB Jr. later got hitched to the luminous and dazzling Aishwarya Rai.
4. Shahid Kapoor
From Kareena Kapoor to Priyanka Chopra to Vidya Balan, the versatile dancer and actor deserves a laurel when it comes to his ‘Chutzpah’ for moving on.
5. John & Bipasha
One of the longest relationships in Bollywood, the couple split up after 10 whole years amidst accusations of cheating from both sides. Presently, John produces his own films along with acting while Bipasha is India’s biggest scream queen for Horror films, proving that moving on has some myriad side-effects.
6. Ash & Salman
Probably the most famous Bollywood breakup story of all time, the celebrated couple got close during the filming of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam but split up and moved on as fast as Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s festive songs.
7. Amitabh Bachchan & Rekha
The most talked about affair of the bygone era, Amitabh Bachchan & Rekha’s mysterious romance was rumored to have inspired the story behind YRF’s Silsila. How and when the couple moved on sometimes makes us wonder, ‘Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum?’
