When it comes to love stories, the love story of tragedy king Dilip Kumar and the beautiful Saira Banu is no less than a film saga. Saira was always in love with Dilip Kumar from the age of 12. And when she became an actress, she starred opposite Dilip Kumar in Sagina Mahato. Love blossomed and it is said Naseem Bano played the perfect Cupid for this couple.
There’s was a romance which literally rose from the ashes. Nargis Dutt and Sunil Dutt met on the sets of Do Bigha Zameen, but Sunil Dutt was an aspiring actor and Nargis was the shining star of Bollywood. And she was also in a relationship with Raj Kapoor who was a married man. During the shoot of 1957 classic Mother India, Nargis was trapped in a blaze and it was Sunil Dutt who like a real hero rushed to save the lady. And love blossomed.
If we talk about an adorable Bollywood couple, you cannot forget about Ritiesh Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza. Both of them were signed for their debut film ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’. And Genelia did not have a high opinion of Ritiesh who she thought was a spoilt brat. But on the sets, much to Genelia’s surprise Ritiesh came across as a very warm person. Although it is not sure that who proposed first, the journey from friendship to love was quite interesting for the couple.
The original He-man and the Dream Girl from Bollywood also met in movie set. It may not have been love at first sight, but Dharmendra was definitely smitten by Hema Malini and kept on pursuing her relentlessly. Hema had many suitors like Sanjeev Kumar and Jeetendra, but the South Indian beauty lost her heart to Dharmendra. Their love story started on the sets of ‘Tum Hassen Main Jawan’.
Although Amitabh Bacchan was not part of the final star cast of Guddi, he met his future wife Jaya Bacchan on the sets of Guddi. And Jaya had later confessed that ‘she was in complete awe of Amitabh Bacchan as he was Harivanshrai Bacchan’s son’. At that time, Jaya was more established than Amitabh, but he soon fell in love with Jaya on the sets of ‘Ek Nazar’. And love blossomed on the sets of ‘Zanjeer’. And as they say that the rest is history.
