Break-ups and Patch-ups in Bollywood are nothing new. But what caught our curiosity are the timings of the relationship news that made the headlines right before the release of their movies. Though we surely know these are a part of the PR to ensure more publicity for the film, what still remains a mystery is- whether the dating part was true or false! So let us have a look at the well-timed break ups and patch-ups of B-town.
1. Arjun Kapoor- Sonakshi Sinha:
Ah! The most recent one. With 'Tevar' gearing up for a release early next month, we can see Arjun and Sonakshi going for movies and dinners together and the paparazzi clicking and posting the pics in the newspaper. Well, given Arjun's record of link-ups, we are sure we wouldn't see much of them together once the movie releases.
2. Ranveer Singh- Deepika Padukone:
Certainly the most sizzling couple of 2013, Ranveer and Deepika's off screen romance made it as the big news right before the release of their movie 'Ram-Leela'. Given the amazing chemistry between the two, we don't mind accepting that it just wasn't for the movie.
3. Ranveer Singh- Sonakshi Sinha:
Right before the Ranveer and Deepika love story made it big, we saw Sonakshi Sinha having her share of link-up controversy with Ranveer. The short-life of both, the movie as well as the love story, leads us to believe it was just another made-up news for publicity.
4. Ranveer Singh- Anushka Sharma:
Case of growth and 'after-growth' of two stars. Before the release of 'Band Bajaa Baraat' YRF made sure there was just a faint noise about their relationship. As soon as the movie became a hit and 'Ladies VS Ricky Bahl' geared up for a release, the news of their relationship started making it big.
5. Ranbir Kapoor- Deepika Padukone:
Though their relationship ended randomly without any of their release around, reports of the two getting along started while they were shooting for 'Bachna Ae Haseeno'. We don't know about what happened and what happens next off-screen, but, we surely loved them together in 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'.
6. Salman Khan- Daisy Shah:
Probably the only thing 'Jai Ho' would be remembered for was the controversial link-up between the most eligible bachelor of B-Town Salman Khan and newcomer Daisy Shah and how he spotted her from a famous dance troupe and got her to make a debut opposite him.
7. Hrithik Roshan-Barbara Mori:
There was much hype regarding Hrithik and Spanish actress Barbara Mori during the release of their movie. Reports of Suzzane moving out of the house and every possible rift between Hrithik and his former wife made it to the headlines.
Like the movie, even the rumour sank!
8. Hrithik Roshan- Suzzane Khan:
The most unfortunate divorce of Bollywood this year! Reports of Hrithik and Suzzane's split made it big everytime his movies released; be it 'Bang Bang!', 'Krrish 3' or 'Kites'. Sadly, all these reports turned true when Hrithik announced their split and the two got divorced later this year.
9. Shah Rukh Khan- Priyanka Chopra:
One of the biggest link-ups ever! Suddenly the loyal and romantic SRK was in the limelight for cheating on his wife and having an extra-marital affair with Priyanka Chopra. A rumor that started after the release of their film 'Don' and lasted for almost 5 years until the release of 'Don 2'.
10. Shahid Kapoor- Priyanka Chopra:
If pictures spoke a thousand words, then the holidaying pictures of Shahid and Priyanka in Goa give us an assurance that their link up was not just another planned one for the release of their movie 'Kaminey'.
11. Varun Dhawan- Alia Bhatt:
The two actors shared a crackling chemistry in 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' and their off-screen chemistry was the hot topic of discussion before the release of the movie.
12. Arjun Kapoor- Alia Bhatt:
Second link-up for Alia Bhatt in a year! She was reportedly in a relationship with her '2 States' co-star Arjun Kapoor. But looks like after the movie released, she opted for Varun Dhawan. Serious relationships or just a method to promote movies?
13. Shahid Kapoor- Kareena Kapoor:
Their relationship started during the filming of 'Fida'. Though it did not help changing the fate of the movie, their break up right before the release of 'Jab We Met' helped the movie a great deal.
14. Saif Ali Khan- Kareena Kapoor:
While people knew she had broken up with her long-time boyfriend, her relationship with Saif Ali Khan went public a few days before the promotions for 'Tashan' started. Hmmâ€¦.daal mein kuch toh kaala hai!
15. Harman Baweja-Bipasha Basu:
Harman Baweja went all around the town making his relationship with Bipasha Basu public during the promotions of his flick 'Dishikiyaoon'.
Sadly, they broke up too. Looks like Harman needs to wait till 2050 to get the love of his life!
16. Karan Singh Grover- Bipasha Basu:
A matter of co-incidence, we must say! Right before the launch of the trailer of their movie, Karan Singh Grover announced his split and divorce with Jennifer Winget.
On the other hand, Bipasha chose to confirm the rumors of her and Harman having gone apart.
And then, as we all know, the two Alone souls managed to get the right publicity for their movie! *winks*
17. Shahid Kapoor- Vidya Balan:
When the two did 'Kismat Konnection' together, the PR team made sure to Konnect them off- screen too. Soon a year after the release of the movie, we heard the two weren't even on talking terms! Hmmmâ€¦.
Here's wishing all the future couples lots of luck, for those two-three months of film promotions. And lots of luck with their next co-star too! And their next co-starâ€¦.
