Bollywood's epic reel life stories depict much love, passion and dedication to inspire us in real life. However, what if the tables were turned! Bollywood's real life couples are also quite inspirational and the way they support each other. Its because its quite a volatile industry and fridays rule your 'kismet' and also fame is transitory. These reel life stories sure deserve some recognition and are just as inspiring, if not more. Its because it entails real emotions and a strong understanding.
Here are three that we would like to be depicted on-screen:
* Sunil Dutt and Nargis Dutt: For Sunil Dutt, it was love at first sight when he first saw Nargis at a move premiere. She was already an established actress and was at the top of her career, while Sunil was just starting out. Their love story though, began on the sets of Mother India. Mother India is cited to be one of Nargis' best performances and Sunil's breakthrough performance. Nargis was still reeling from her failed relationship with Raj Kapoor and Sunil was trying his best to woo her. The turning point of their relationship, however, was when a fire broke out on the sets of Mother India and Sunil put himself in danger to help the unaided Nargis. Nargis had a very kind heart and after the incident, they became good friends. In an instance, Nargis surprised Sunil by taking his sister to the hospital and sat all through with her during an operation.Sunil then decided to take a bold step by proposing marriage to her. When he did so, he decided that if she said no, he would run back to his village. But, sure enough, Nargis did say yes later in front of his sister and months later, the duo was married. They went on to have three kids and supported each other through their individual endevours - and remained just as enamoured with each other, also.
* Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan: This epic love story began in 1984 when Shah Rukh was still in school and met Gauri at a common friend's party. Shah Rukh was completely taken aback by Gauri and vowed to make her his wife. When he asked her to dance with him, she shrugged him off, saying she had to go home. Soon after, SRK began wooing her. Gauri fell for Shah Rukh really hard and fast soon enough and SRK became possessive about her. He wouldn't even let her leave her hair open or talk to other boys. Tired of this, Gauri decided to give their relationship a break. However, that wasn't gonna last either. They decided to get married, but the reality of the relationship hit sooner. Gauri's father didn't approve of their relationship because of Shah Rukh's faith. Gauri's parents soon complied, and they arrived in Bollywood soon after! Gauri has been by his side, througout their success and failures. Together, they are a force to reckon with. Three children and various business ventures after, they are very much in love.
