When seen apart these high-profile couples looked incomplete. Thrown together they were dynamite hogging more space on the social media than Prince Harry & Meghan Markle. As it's curtains down on 2020 here's looking back at the most power-puffed couples who were in the news for all the right reasons.
Arjun Kapoor & Malaika Arora: You would be hard-pressed to remember when Arjun had a film release, and which one. For the record, it was India’s Most Wanted and Panipat in 2019, both flops. But ever since he came out in the open about his long-standing relationship with Malaika Arora, Arjun was splashed all over the social media, in and out of holidays with his ladylove, praising her by leaving heart and fire emojis. It’s that darned thing they call chemistry, a mystery to us that makes this duo always in demand. Will Mal-Arj continue to be a hit Jodi after marriage? Your guess is as good as ours!
Ali Fazal-Richa Chadha: Will they marry in April, May…during COVID, post-COVID …the discussions ran on unabated until Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely death. Entertainment journalism had other things to think about. Mr Fazal and Ms Chadha have been caught in various parts of the world. Ali had Mirzapur 2 and Richa’s Shakeela proved a damp squib. They even walked the right carpet with Judi Dench. ‘Dame’! Some people have all the luck in the world. Will this couple attract the same attention after the wedding whenever it happens?
Zaid Durbar-Gauahar Khan: Apart from her win on Bigg Boss, the beautiful Gauahar Khan made a mark only in select films like Rocket Singh Salesman Of The Year starring Ranbir Kapoor and Ishaqzaade starring Arjun Kapoor-Parineeti Chopra. With Zaid Durbar, son of Ismail, she seems to have clicked on the social media like never before. I am not even sure of what Zaid does. Or what his claim to fame is. He just makes the cut as a power couple with his Begum. Koi Shaq?
Rohanpreet Singh-Neha Kakkar: Did anyone know Roahanpreet Singh until he fastened his fate to singer Neha Kakkar? Suddenly as a couple they were trending as though their romance was never-ending. While their flash-wedding sounded a bit off-kilter, Neha’s flash-pregnancy seemed even more unreal. The latter turned out to be just a gimmick to promote their new song. With insta-celebs, one never knows.
Aditya Narayan-Shweta Agarwal: Their wedding was the wedding of the year. Aditya’s father Udit Narayan laughingly said, his son’s marriage attracted far more attention than Udit’s marriage. So does that mean Aditya is more popular than his father? Fame on social media is a very complex and fickle ally. Here today, viral tomorrow, trolled the day after. Enjoy it while it lasts.
