1. Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu

Known to be the longest standing marriage Bollywood has ever seen, these forever-young and forever-in-love-with-each-other lovebirds are quite inseparable. This is one fairytale love tale of B-town which has shown that age does not matter when you truly love someone. This romantic tale of two stars who have an age difference of 22 years yet have successfully crossed 46 years of togetherness should definitely inspire the younger generation in believing in LOVE.

2. Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan

B-town rejoiced when these two co-actors of superhit films like Guddi, Zanjeer or Abhimaan tied the nuptial knot in 1973. In fact, it was on the set of Zanjeer Big B fell for the ever-graceful Jaya Bhaduri. Today, after completing 40 successful years, this marriage has remained equally strong and successful. Not even the strongest gossip of Amitabh-Rekha affair could cause any harm to this rock-solid marriage.

3. Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna

It came as a shock to the B-town when the ultimate Casanova of Bollywood, Mr. Khiladi tied the knot with Twinkle Khanna, the daughter of the first superstar, Rajesh Khanna. The lady killer Akshay Khanna who was more famous for his affairs than his films on those days, finally gave his heart to this beautiful star-kid as well as a charming actress just after doing two films together. Although both of the films could not do any good to the box office, but they indeed gave birth to one of the most successful marriages of Bollywood which took place on 2001 and is still going stronger with every passing day.

4. Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri

A struggling actor falls hopelessly for a girl-where the boy is from a Muslim family and the girl, a Hindu. This is not a Bollywood movie we are describing but SRK’s love story. A courtship of 6 years along with the girl’s family’s strong opposition in this union finally resulted in a marriage that, with time, will become a benchmark of love and loyalty. It was 1991 that saw the wedding of the King-Khan-in-the-making, Shah Rukh with Gauri. And, thus, the Dilwale finally took away his Dulhania from her Babul’s home.

This sweet and bubbly couple of Bollywood was warned of a marriage not lasting more than 2 years by the media astrologers. They proved these naysayers wrong with their marriage that has lasted more than 35 years. Although the marriage of this Kapoor boy, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh has seen many rough patches;  at the end of the day, they both have stood by each other through thick and thin.

What do you say when an introvert boy falls head-over-heels for a completely extrovert and high-spirited girl? We call it “opposites attract.” And that’s what happened to Ajay Devgn and Kajol. Married in 1999, this happy couple is now the proud parents of two beautiful girls.
