6 Bollywood Celebs and their Live-in Relationships


Live-in, this word has of late become quite popular in India as well. And, it won't be wrong to give a little bit of credit to our Bollywood for this change. From on-screen to off-screen, the celebs in tinsel town are found flaunting this tag everywhere. Some live-in relationships materialise into marriage like Saif and Kareena's and some just fizzle out with time like John and Bipasha's. Here is a look at some of our desi celebrity couples, who are still the best of roomies, and also a few who propagated live-in relationships before tying the knot.

Abhay Deol and Preeti Desai

For an actor who cares a damn about stereotypical “hero” roles on-screen, it is really not surprising to see him taking the unconventional path in real life also. On the talk show, India’s Most Desirable, Abhay confessed about his live-in relationship with Preeti Desai, a former Miss Great Britain, and went on to say that he might never consider marriage. "I think marriage is a cultural thing, it's my opinion that nature doesn't tell someone to get married. I may or may not get married but I will settle down in a live-in."

Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao

Kiran Rao once said that she was not sure about marrying Aamir, until she moved in with him. That was when she realised that they had so much in common despite having their own ideologies. This couple connected on a more intrinsic level. In an exclusive interview to Verve, Aamir said, “Kiran had a certain positive effect on me. I started getting serious about her when I asked her to move in. Otherwise I would not have done that. We lived together for a year and a half before getting married."

Tulip Joshi and Captain Vinod Nair

Acror Tulip Joshi found love in Captain Vinod Nair, a life coach and etiquette expert. Nair was briefly married before he met Tulip, and the couple have been together for the past nine years. In an interview with Nisha Jamwal, a famous writer, Tulip said that it is not marriage but commitment that is important. She also added that a clerk sitting in a marriage registration office drinking “masala chai” is nobody to empower her relationship with a stamp. The couple says that they are more committed than many married couples, who live through a sham for outer appearances.

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

The couple with the royal looks, Saif and Kareena were also in a live-in relationship before they tied the knot in October last year. Kareena was outspoken about her relationship and never shied away from accepting that she was in a live-in relationship with Saif. Here is what the diva says, “I have tried and tested the live-in relationship formula and now I can personally endorse it for modern Indian couples. And live-ins is a reality in modern India. I am a modern woman and I am glad I could live up to what I believe in.”

Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan

Following the footprints of her brother, at No. 5, we have Soha Ali Khan. Actors, Soha and Kunal, have never been secretive about their relationship. Soha says that trusting and loving a person enough to move-in with him is a commitment equal to marriage. When you trust a person to that extent, signing the paper is no longer significant.

Sushant Singh and Ankita Ankita Lokhande

Just like Soha and Kunal, the latest hearthrob Sushant, is also in a live-in relationship with his girlfriend Ankita, for quite some time now, and is still going strong. Apart from the above list, there are many other celebs also who advocated this formula. John Abraham and Bipasha Basu lived together for around nine years before calling it quits. Konkana Sen and Ranveer Shorey were in a live-in before getting married. Not just B-town, even TV stars like Kashmira Shah and Krishna Abhishek, Sanjeeda and Aamir Ali, all have tasted the live-in fruit.
