When we think about Bollywood, we imagine love stories and fantastical moments for all to cherish. The most ironical part is, that there are many stars in the film industry who had more conventional weddings in comparison to others. Friends, family or people who are dear to them were responsible for the meeting and for the sweet wedding. Let’s have a look at some of the artists whose lives changed after they had Arrange Marriages.
Vivek Oberoi and Priyanka Alva
Vivek was in love with Abhishek Bachchan’s wife, Aishwarya Rai. The two seemed inseparable when Ash suddenly changed her mind and fell for Junior Bachchan. Vivek’s father stepped in, to soothe his son’s wounds. He introduced her to Priyanka Alva. Priyanka’s mother seemed pleased with the match. He stated that if he relied on his parents, maybe he would find his soulmate. Looks like he did find his dream girl.
Madhuri Dixit and Dr. Shriram Nene
Madhuri found her soulmate when her brother, Ajit introduced her to Dr.Nene. They were introduced when they met briefly in the United States. She was swept off her feet and they discovered a connection between each other. The nation’s sweetheart has stolen away and now they are happily married and live in peace with their children. This was one of the biggest arrange marriages of Bollywood.
Dhanush and Aishwarya
Dhanush won our hearts with his exceptional performance in Raanjhanaa when he pursued his lady love whose character was played by Sonam Kapoor. He was introduced to Rajnikanth’s daughter and found happiness after marrying her. Dhanush is the son of a famous director and producer, Kasthuri Raja. Both families were happy with the match.
Rakesh Roshan and Pinky
This couple met formally like all couples do when they sign up for an arranged marriage. The magazine, Filmfare revealed this fact. Pinky is J.Om Prakash’s daughter. He was a famous director and producer. Together they silently celebrated life with each other and continue to do so, unlike their son and daughter-in-law. This is one of the oldest arrange marriages. They both are parents of Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan.
From these examples, it is easy to note that the celebrities who apparently thought they were meant to be with someone, were actually meant to fall for their spouse when they met in an arranged situation by family. Love does blossom in Arrange Marriages as well.
