Chintu & Neetu & their Forever

We keep hearing love stories where best friend turns lover these days. Do you know this is not something new.  History is witness of best friends/confidant turning into lovers and making a forever love story.

We are talking about Kapoor clan’s chocolate boy. Oh! No no no not Ranbir Kapoor, we are talking about his daddy cool. Yup, chocolate boy of his time, Rishi Kapoor and most sought after heroin Neetu Singh were each other’s confidant before they turned each other’s better halves.

Neetu Singh started dating Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) when she was just 14 years old (now I know where I got the courage from ;)). Neetu Singh was taking baby steps in the industry whereas Rishi Kapoor was already an established actor. They came together on-screen for the film “ Zehreela insaan” in 1974.

It was “not” love at first sight for them. In fact, Chintu, being Chintu, used to tease Neetu so much so that he would smear kajal on her face just after she finishes her makeup. Yup, that’s what best friends do and we still love them.

Their moment of realization came when Rishi Kapoor went abroad for the shooting of “Barood”. Before that, he was shooting with Neetu for “Kabhi Kabhi” . Within 2-3 days of his shooting, he sent her a telegram reading “ye sikhni badi yaad aati hai”. Fir kya, our Chintu found the love of his life.

Neetu’s mom wasn’t happy with their growing closeness as her daughter was just 14 years old and Neetu had just started her carrier. This was also the reason why they were also the reason why they were always accompanied by Neetu’s cousin on their dates.

But we all know Chintu ji won’t have let his dates be spoiled by “kawab mey haddi”. He dropped off Neetu’s cousin midway and picked him up on their way return…. Ahen smart move Chintu ji.

Their engagement was a surprise to them also. Rishi’s sister planned their engagement without them having any hint about it. Neetu had to be calmed down by a glass of bubbly drink offered by her best friend cum lover cum husband.

Rishi and Neetu tied the knot on 22nd Jan 1980 after 5 years of courtship. They had their share of ups and downs but they still stand strong and gave us Ranbir ;).

Vivid Love Story of Sunil Dutt and Nargis

A love story so vivid that can make any literature or cinema look drab.

The story of Sunil Dutt and Baby Nargis.

It was in mid 1950s when Sunil met his long time crush on the set of “ Do Bigha Zameen” .

I guess it was a trend back then for girl to already be an established actress and for boy to be a struggler when cupid had to aim them. This was same for Nargis and Sunil Dutt as well. Baby Nargis was already shining bright whereas Sunil was still struggling to establish himself when he was aimed by cupid. But he did not rush to tell this to Nargis as she was already a star and there were rumours of Nargis and Raj Kapoor to be in a relationship.

Sunil decided to keep calm and wait for his time. I guess he knew universe has already planned their union. It was on the set of “Mother India” when Nargis got trapped in a wild fire while shooting. Sunil Dutt, like a real hero, jumped to save her  and got himself burnt. This is when Baby Nargis fell in love with him.

 

For almost two weeks, until Sunil Dutt fully recovered, she was by his side and took care of him. This was the time period when the closeness between them increased. And they both fell in love with each other.

Sunil Dutt did not let her past effect their relation. In fact, he behaved as if Baby Nargis never had any past relation. They were so close to each other that Nargis could easily talk to him about her past with Raj Kapoor and future with Sunil Dutt without the fear of getting herself exposed.

“Sunil’s shoulder were always there for me to cry on, and also knew that his garments will absorb my tears and not scatter them out for people to make fun of me” – Nargis Dutt.

 

Who would not want to marry a person as loyal as Sunil Dutt. I am definitely not going to leave a person like that.

Sunil and Nargis got married secretly on 11 march 1958. As Nargis was playing his mother’s role in the movie “Mother India” which did not allow them to be open about their relation. Once the movie was released they gave an official reception and moved in together. It was one of the high class marriage of inter religion. Baby Nargis converted herself into hindu to be with him.

 

They lived a life full of love. Nargis Dutt passed away due to pancreatic cancer just three days before the release of her son’s debut film.

Sunil Dutt also passed away on 25th may 2005. But he left Sanjay Dutt, Namrata Dutt and Priya Dutt to carry on his legacy.

The Adorable Story Veeru & Dhanno!

On 21st August 1979, after breaking all the norms and fighting the world Bollywood’s dream girl (Hema Malini) tied the knots with the hunk Veeru ( Dharmendra). It was on the set of “ tum haseen main jaavan” in 1970 when macho Veeru and cinema’s dream girl fell in love with each other.

It was the time when Hema had already rejected many proposals such as Jeetendra and Sanjeev kumar’s. On the another hand Dharmendra was already married to Prakash kaur and had two sons, but nothing could stop him from falling in love with sita and geeta.

Their’s wasn’t an easy love story. It was as dramatic and as masaledaar as any of our Bollywood movie. Dharmendra’s wife, Prakash Kaur, wasn’t divorce him and being a hindu he could not have two wives. Therefore he turned himself muslim to marry his dream girl.

Initially, even Hema did not reciprocate to Dharmendra’s proposal, as she did not want to get involved with a married man. But they kept signing movies together. While shooting and spending time together on movie set they got close to each other. Hema remember falling in love with Dharmendra, they were shooting for the song “ jat yamla pagla diwana” it was his funny dance moves which took dream girl’s heart away.

 

Once, Hema and Dharmendra was shooting separately in Nasik and Banglore. Dharmendra, from Banglore, drove for 24 hours all the way to Nasik only to tell Hema that he loves her. Damn it, why wasn’t I born in that era??

Hema’s parents were not at all happy with their growing closeness. They decided to get her married to Jeetendra and took her to Madras for marriage ceremony. But somehow Dharmendra got this news and flew to Madras to get his girl. Like a hero he is, he gate-crashed her wedding and somehow convinced his dream girl not to marry Jeetendra.

That must have a really serious situation for them, but now that I imagine the situation, it seems like a scene from a comedy movie… I am sure they both  laugh on the situation too. 😀 gate-crashing a wedding and stealing dulhaniya… hahaha

 

Now they are happily living together, blessed with two beautiful daughters.

Jaya Bhaduri’s Angry Young Man <3

Isn’t Amitabh Bachchan not only our parents’ favourite but ours too?

Even at the age of 75 he has the personality which can steal everyone’s heart. But the only person who stole his heart and never gave back is Jaya Bhaduri, his binddri.

 

mmm… there was Rekha too but Jaya ji had a stronger grip :B .

 

On june 3, 1973 Jaya Bhaduri stole Amitabh Bachchan’s surname to make her’s forever. A time tested couple as Amitabh and Jaya got married in a span of few days as Jaya’s lambuji wanted to take her on London trip but his parents said ‘NO’ to the trip with a girl before marriage. So, he took a bigger step and decided to get married to her in a private ceremony.

 

They took the flight to London on the same day of their marriage. Oh God! How romantic…. Those were the days…. <3

 

Jaya Bhaduri was already a star when Amitabh Bachchan saw Jaya ji first time on a cover of a magazine. But they were first introduced to each other officially by Hrshikesh Mukherjee for the movie ‘guddi’. Call it serendipity as Jaya ji matched all the features of his dream women.

 

But but but .. it was Jaya ji who realized it first that she has started to develop feeling for him.

 

It was on the set of “Ek nazar” when cupid stuck Amitabh ji too with Jaya’s arrow.

The royal couple of Bollywood tied the knots in an appartment of jaya bhaduri’s family friend at Malabar hill. Their wedding was blessed by their close friends & family.

 

Like everyone else their marriage was also hit by tsunami waves but they stood rock solid and crossed the ocean of hurdle and now they are on safe island.

We don’t wish anything but a life full of love, success and health for Big B & jaya ji.

22 years of age gap did not become a hurdle to make their marriage a forever affair. 50 years of togetherness and the couple is still head over heel in love for each other.

“I am still head over heels in love with my Kohinoor, yousuf sahib, the way I was when I first felt attracted to him as a 12 year-old. Ours has been as good and enduring a marriage as so many marriages that have survived the ups and downs for four decades. No marriage is perfect. How can it be, when as human being we are not perfect? It is mutual love, respect and adoration that keep a marriage ticking.”

Saira banu was just 12 years old when cupid stuck her for dilip kumar. She even lost her heart to Rajendra kumar. But no other man could take care of her heart as well as dilip kumar did.

They got married in 1966 when dilip kumar was 44 and saira banu was 22. He proposed to her when she was shooting for “ jhuk gaya aasmaan”, he said “ Saira, you are not the kind of girl I want to drive with or be seen around with… I would like to marry you… will you be my wife?”. Damn I will be flying high if someone proposes me like that in todays “only dating” world.
