Bollywood isn’t only about its fancy costumes or extravagant sets – its about those famous celebrities who became real life couples and are happily married now. Like a fairy tale story, these celebs have interesting proposal stories which can give other lovers a hint about what really works or simply become the trends to follow.
By default, every girl dreams of her prince charming going down on his knees with a perfect rock but our Bollywood celebs believe in doing things differently and had dreamier proposals for their better halves. Let’s have a look at 5 of these famous couples who have interesting proposal stories.
1. Karan Singh Grover – Bipasha Basu
This ‘odd’ couple fell in love while filming for Alone and there’s no looking back ever since! Famously called the ‘monkey lovers’ the two celebrated two years of blissful marriage. But it was more than their 3-year age gap which was unique. It was how they became man and wife.
Karan proposed to Bipasha in the picturesque location of Koh Samui island. Her reaction was described by Karan himself in these words:
We were in Koh Samui, it was 31 December and the sky was lit with fireworks. I was carrying the ring with me. Ehile she was taking videos of fireworks, i gave her the ring. Her expression was like that of someone who was going to be murdered, like in some of her films!
This impromptu proposal took Bipasha by surprise but she agreed to marry. Now their regular pictures on social media confirms our faith in their true love story.
2. Shah Rukh Khan – Gauri Khan
The King of Romance would be the ideal guy for the ideal propose right? Gauri and SRK have been married for 27 years now and their journey started in Delhi, from where Gauri belongs. The two had been dating for a while after SRK kept pursuing the former model. During this time, Gauri moved to Mumbai to take a break from their relationship issues.
This was the turning point in the couple’s lives as SRK went to Mumbai after Gauri after realising her absence and importance in his life. He spent relentless days searching for her and finally found his ladylove at a beach.
They both released their destiny of love and SRK proposed to Gauri right there and then, without caring for the future. She said yes and rest they say is history!
3. Abhishek Bachchan – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Abhishek fell for Aishwarya Rai who was two years older to him, but that didn’t stop their romance. The duo have been married happily and even have a daughter Aaradhya. They celebrate their marriage anniversary last month on April 20. Once during an interview and telling about his love story, Abhishek confessed about his proposal.
He said that while filming in New York for another film, he used to stand in the balcony of his hotel room and do the wishful thinking of being married to the most beautiful woman in the world.
Of course, his wish was granted and while shooting for Guru (where some scenes were shot in New York) he proposed to her on the same hotel balcony. They have been married for 11 years now.
4. Saif Ali Khan – Kareena Kapoor Khan
Although this couple is staunchly quiet about their personal life in media interviews, their regular pictures on social media has shut down all those trolls who targeted them for their age-gap and second-time marriage. 47-year old Saif, who was earlier married to Amrita Singh, fell in love with ten years younger Kareena who was freshly single after her breakup with Shahid Kapoor.
When asked about how Saif proposed to her in 2012, she told a exclusive television chat show:
He actually proposed to me a couple of months after we met, in Paris. I think it was at the bar of Ritz Hotel and I said no. During same trip, he asked again, this time at the Notre Dame Church. Because I was into my career, I asked him for time to think. And two days later, I said yes!
They have been married since 6 years now and have a gorgeous green-eyed son Taimur Ali Khan Patuadi who lights up our hearts every time he appears on social media.
5. Soha Ali Khan – Kunal Kemmu
Continuing with the family legacy, just like her later father and elder brother, Soha too has a Paris connection when it comes to marriage. Continuing the Pataudi clan fascination with this dreamy lover’s paradise, 39-year-old Soha went on a month-long Europe vacation with her then boyfriend, 34-year-old Kunal Kemmu.
It was during this trip that the former child actor Kunal, who is five years younger than his now wife, decided to hear his heart’s calling. He decided to surprise Soha with a romantic proposal in the most romantic city in the world!
Even though Paris wasn’t included at all in their Europe itinerary, he pulled off the perfect proposal in the perfect city for long-lasting romances and of course, Soha happily agreed! They have been married since January 25, 2015.
