Live-in is still a very frowned upon concept in India. While one believes it’s against Indian traditions, others feel it is good to stay with the person you love to know them better. Both beliefs have their pros and cons. But today with a much evolved set of youngsters, live-in has become a regular and in Bollywood too, it is practiced without anyone raising any eyebrows. Yes, there will be murmurs initially since the industry too believes in abiding by traditions, they don’t dismiss it outrightly. So here are some celebs who decided to stay it out before taking the walk down the aisle.
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif
Ranbir and Katrina, the most talked about couple of B-Town has finally found their love nest in Carter Road, Mumbai and they will soon move into their apartment together. Recently the two very close people to the couple Ayan Mukerji and Karan Johar visited the apartment and nodded for approval. Mostly the couple will move into the apartment this weekend. The couple were said to be in relationship since a long time however there was no confirmation but they are quite open with their living in relationship and were seen shopping and planning interiors of their apartment together.
Abhay Deol-Preeti Desai
He is one actor who doesn’t conform to anything usual. He likes to follow a different route to do same things. He chose to go offbeat even when he was still making his room in the industry and in the personal front, doesn’t care what people thinks about his live-in relationship with girlfriend Preeti Desai. Such is their love that Abhay even produced a movie with her but that tanked badly. They met at the success party of Dev D and are together eversince. Marriage? Abhay doesn’t have that in his plans yet.
Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto
Both were young and fresh when they started working on Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire. While enacting romance on screen, it spilled over their real life. They started seeing each other since the film happened. It’s been four years that they have been staying together. And are still going strong. We are sure a random sloshed birthday nigh with Siddharth Mallya is not going to put a dent on this relationship.
Soha Ali Khan-Kunal Khemu
They are perhaps the first live-in couple of Bollywood who has marriage in the horizon although distant. They fell in love on the sets of a film they were doing together and since then were going strong. Only recently, they both moved in and Kunal has already proposed marriage to her. We hope it happens soon because, Soha, Saif has found love and happiness the second time as well. What about you?
Kashmira Shah and Krushna Abhishek
They met on the sets of Pappu Paas Ho Gaya and fell in love very soon. They have been together since 2007. They also stay together and are said to be in love. There were rumours of the couple calling it quits some years back but nothing of the sort happened. They are still together and we hear Krushna has proposed marriage to her. Now the wait is just for a date!
Anikita Lokhande- Sushant Singh Rajput
Pavitra Rishta started love rishta between Ankita and Sushant and they are together till date. There have been talks of the couple splitting up with Sushant’s alleged philandering ways gaining momentum but nothing of the sort happened. Both of them are very happy and are staying together. They might soon tie the knot as both Sushant and Ankita are ready for marriage.
