A partnership is a complete package, full of both happy and unhappy moments. Even if it seems that way when you first meet your love, it is never a walk in the park. When it comes to romance, our favorite Bollywood romcoms play a critical role in making us believe in happy endings. Even celebrities face ups and downs, emotional issues, and hardships; here’s a list of the famous celebrity couples who got engaged but never married.
1. Abhishek Bachchan And Karisma Kapoor
The on-screen pair from ‘Haan Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya’ dating in real life for five years before getting engaged in 2002 on Amitabh Bachchan’s 60th birthday. Karisma was a well-known actress, while Abhishek was still finding his feet. Babita had evidently needed financial stability post-marriage to protect her daughter’s future, so she had drawn up a prenuptial agreement. Jaya was not satisfied with any of it, and the pair promptly called off their engagement.
2. Akshay Kumar And Raveena Tandon
Before marrying Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia’s daughter Twinkle Khanna, Akshay Kumar had his own series of affairs and infidelity charges. Raveena Tandon and Akshay dated for almost three years and had several superhits together. Raveena disclosed in an interview that they both secretly got engaged at a temple but that Akshay kept quiet because he was afraid it would jeopardize his acting career. However, she called off the engagement after hearing rumors of his hook-ups with another star.
3. Salman Khan And Sangeeta Bijlani
After dating for nearly a decade, Salman and Sangeeta decided to take their relationship to the next level. According to Salman’s biography, Being Salman, the couple agreed to marry in 1995, and all was planned for their wedding, from the wedding dates to the invitations. On the other hand, Sangeeta suspected Salman of cheating on her with actor Somy Ali and called the wedding off. Later, on the talk show Koffee With Karan, Salman admitted that Sangeeta had caught him cheating on her. Nonetheless, the two have mended fences and are now on good terms.
4. Karan Singh Grover And Barkha Bisht
In 2004, Karan and Barkha met on the set of their first film, Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi, and began dating soon after. Karan proposed to her in 2004, and the two were married in 2005. However, things went wrong when Barkha became insecure about Karan’s flirtatious behavior and accused him of cheating on her. As a result, in 2006, the two parted ways.
