When stepping out after watching a movie in which the sizzling chemistry of the lead actors takes your breath away, you can't help but think how wonderful it would be to have these actors as a real life couples as well! However, our hopes are usually shattered and we can only hope that they star again in another film to recreate the same magic for us. On the other hand, sometimes our wishes do get fulfilled and we get to see that some of those couples feel the same way you do and end up becoming life partners in real life as well!

With that in mind, BollyCurry brings to you a few of the ever green jodis who not only stole our hearts on screen but went on to spread the magic in their real life as well! Go on to read the couples from the yesteryear who not only stole our hearts on screen, but always manage to incite a fondness in our heart by being as amazing a pair off screen as well.

Amitabh Bachchan And Jaya Bhaduri Bachchan
The angry young man of Bollywood Amitabh, and the demure Jaya fell in love amid the shooting locations of Zanjeer and got married soon after the release of the film. They tied the knot on June 3rd, 1973, in a quiet ceremony in Mumbai. Prior to their marriage, Jaya starred opposite Amitabh in Guddi and Zanjeer; while post marriage, she shared screen space with him in hit films such as Silsila, Abhimaan and Mili. However, Jaya soon took a sabbatical from her career, instead choosing to focus on looking after her household and kids. She only returned in 2001 to star opposite her husband in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, making it their last venture till date. This charismatic couple has two children, actor Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Shweta Nanda.
Known as the tragedy king, Dilip Kumar married the petite and beautiful, Saira Banu, at the age of 44 while she was only 22. It was her dream to marry the magnificent hero Dilip Kumar, and her dream came true in 1966, when the duo were joined in happy matrimony. The couple starred in various films together such as Gopi, Sagina and Bajrang. However, Saira soon took a break from movies and gave time to her marriage as problems started arising in between the couple. However, once things settled down and fell into place, she yet again shared screen space with her husband, in ironically their last film together, Duniya.
Their first film together showed them as a mother-son duo in the epic movie Mother India, but who knew that during this movie, love would bloom between the two stars! During the making of this film, a fire scene went out of hand and ending up becoming an accident in which Dutt braved the raging fire to save Nargis, and with that winning her love as well! The much in love couple tied the knot on March 11, 1958 which resulted in Nargis choosing to leave the film industry. However, she did make certain appearances in the 60's in various movies. The two have three children, Sanjay Dutt, Priya Dutt and Namrata Dutt. The blissfully happy couple eventually had tragedy strike in their life when Nargis got diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and died a few days before her son Sanjay's debut film hit the screens.
The He-Man of Bollywood married the dream girl Hema Malini, even though he was already married and had four kids, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Vijeeta Deol and Ajeeta Deol, with his first wife. If sources are to be believed, they fell in love on the sets of the super hit film Sholay. He proposed and married Hema while he was still married to his first wife Prakash Kaur and went on to maintain two relationships after converting to Islam, thereby allowing him to keep both marriages. The couple starred in many films with Sholay being their highest commercial success. Their other films include, Raja Jani, Seeta Aur Geeta, Sharafat, Tum Haseen Main JawaanJugnu, Dost, Charas, Maa, Chacha Bhatija, Azaad, Sholay and The Burning Train. The two have two daughters, Esha Deol and Ahana Deol.
Rishi Kapoor And Neetu Singh
The Chintuji of Bollywood married his sweetheart Neetu in the year 1980. The couple starred in 11 films together, out of which the most successful ones were Khel Khel Mein, Amar Akbar Anthony, Rafoo Chakkar and Doosra Aadmi. The couple have two children, son Ranbir Kapoor, and daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahani. Their son is a successful Bollywood actor as well and their nieces, Karishma and Kareena Kapoor are also part of the Hindi film industry.

They indeed are the Rab Ne Bana Di Jodis of both reel and real life. It's truly said that the older generation is an inspiration for the generations coming ahead. We surely say that they are the true examples of togetherness and unconditional love. We hope you enjoyed reading this half of the article as we bid adieu with the promise to return with the new-generation couples who made it from the reel to the real list.
