Double sizzle or fizzle?
Deepika and Ranveer along with both their families were spotted having an informal dinner together in a South Mumbai restaurant. It is almost certain that the families are in the process of finalising the dates for the wedding.
We wish Deepika all the happiness in the world. She deserves it after going through so much in her failed relationship with Ranbir Kapoor.
Off screen, their relationship may have failed but onscreen Deepika and Ranbir have given us so many gorgeous movies.
1. Ranveer – Deepika – Ranbir
Deepika looks great with both Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor onscreen. She is one of the few who has given hits and/or critically acclaimed movies with both of her beaus. With Ranbir we have seen her in Bachna Ae Haseeno, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Tamasha. With Ranveer she has sizzled in Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmavat. The jury is still out on who is her better onscreen partner.

2. Jaya – Amitabh – Rekha
Amitabh has sizzled onscreen with both his partner and rumoured partner as well. He has shared credit with Rekha in 18 movies. Few of them like Suhag, Namak Haram, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar are big hits. But somehow these 18 are not close to the status of the films he did with his wife. The movies in which Amitabh and Jaya shared space became more than hits. Sholay, Zanjeer and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham are historic. That should tell you something about their real life.
3. Dharmendra – Hema Malini – Jeetendra
Hema Malini and Dharmendra are a commercially successful onscreen pair who have done around 40 movies together. The Hema Malini – Jeetendra pair is nowhere close to this but this pair has done few films such as Kinara and Khushboo where Hema Malini bloomed as an actress going beyond her glamour avatar. In real life she could have been much more than a second wife, had she gone along with her parents’ plans of getting her married to Jeetendra.
4. Saira Banu – Dilip Kumar – Madhubala
Among the movies starring Saira Banu and Dilip Kumar, Gopi is the biggest hit but it is no way close to the status Mughal-e-Azam enjoys in the history of Bollywood. Apart from Mughal-E-Azam, Dilip Kumar and Madhubala acted in three more movies together. His movies with Madhubala have a heart breaking yearning to it, which corresponds to the real life sad fortune of the star-crossed lovers
5. Saif – Kareena – Shahid
Kareena has got only fizzle with both her past and present beaus except the endearing Jab We Met with Shahid. That movie was made during a period when Kareena was growing apart from Shahid and beginning her relationship with Saif. Maybe the farewell to a love and the sweetness of beginning another love mingled in Jab We Met. After the failures Kareena has stopped doing any films with her husband for now. Shahid and Kareena shared credit in the critically acclaimed Udta Punjab but they were not cast opposite each other.
6. Abhishek – Aishwarya – Salman
The real-life obsession of Salman with Aishwarya is part of folklore now. Hum Dil De Chuke Hai Sanam was their swan story of love. Aishwarya broke free of the destructive relationship and got married to Abhishek. With Abhishek she acted in movies like Guru, Sarkar Raj, which held important places in evolution of Indian cinema.
7. Neetu Singh – Rishi Kapoor – Dimple Kapadia
Rishi-Neetu may be arguably the most successful young pair in Bollywood but Rishi and Dimple had starred in the first ever teenybopper movie of Bollywood, Bobby.
Today Rishi and Neetu have one of the most stable marriages in Bollywood and are good friends with Dimple.
