7 Couples Who Showed Us Why Breaking Up Is A Good Thing

Who comes to mind when you hear the words ‘celeb couples’? To a sports fanatic, it might be FC Barcelona footballer, Gerard Pique and his superstar girlfriend Shakira. To a Bollywood buff, the couple would probably be Saif and Kareena or Ranbir and Deepika. To me though, it’s all about Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli. However, I’m in a completely dark and twisty place right now. So, I’m not going to be writing about all the love that these couples share and all that jazz. Instead, I’m going to be writing about how these couples got to where they are today. I mean, whose heart they broke to be with their current partner. Let’s take a look, shall we?

1. Jennifer Lawrence And Chris Martin


Poor Gwyneth Paltrow! She said, it was conscious uncoupling and they were separating happily to live a better life. Who’s living the better life now? Jennifer Lawrence is. Chris Martin first, Liam Hemsworth now. Chris has moved onto to British actress Annabelle Wallis while Gwyneth on the other hand is dating American Horror story producer, Brad Falchuk.


2. Lara Dutta And Mahesh Bhupati


Now, we don’t know if this was conscious uncoupling but they both got incredibly lucky. I mean, Lara Dutta has moved on from Kelly Dorjee to Mahesh Bhupathi, the first Indian to win a Grand Slam event! We must actually congratulate Mr. Bhupathi though. He stepped up big time. He caught the eyes of a Miss Universe and the couple is now blessed with a little one.


3. Kareena Kapoor And Saif Ali Khan


In India, Man of the Match awards are only given to sports persons. However, we should give Kareena a similar kind of an award too. First, she was with Shahid Kapoor. She broke the poor chap’s heart and then caught the heart of Saif Ali Khan. We must say, she’s a very good catch(er).

4. Dipika Pallikal And Dinesh Karthik


Here’s one genuine love story. A story of fate! A story that makes us believe in love. His wife Nikita broke his heart by teaming up with his team mate, Murali Vijay. However, a year later, Dinesh Karthik found the love of his life in Indian squash sensation, Dipika Pallikal.

5. Anushka Sharma And Virat Kohli


She became an overnight sensation with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and then Band Baajaa Baaraat. She got together with co-star Ranveer Singh. They denied it, but anyone who watched them on Coffee with Karan would know it. They were trying so hard not to show it but we all knew. However, they broke up and then came the All Clear advertisement with the Indian cricket team’s vice captain. Coffee with Karan happened again and Anushka denied the relationship again. But it was all over her face. She was blushing like a high school girl in love for the first time. Now that Ranveer too has found love in Deepika Padukone, we wish both the couples luck and hope they stay together. We like them that way.

6. Katrina Kaif And Ranbir Kapoor


Yeah, we all wish Ranbir and Deepika were together. After all, they make such a great pair on screen. However, it wasn’t meant to be. And when we talk about relationships in Bollywood, Salman Khan just has to be involved. Unfortunately, Bhai is always at the receiving end of the stick when it comes to relationships. First, Aishwarya goes and marries Abhishek Bachchan of all people. Then, Katrina leaves him to be with Ranbir of all people (though there seems to be some trouble brewing between Kat and Ranbir too). All we can say is Sorry Bhai.

These are only a few couples I could think of; no these are the best of the lot actually. There are many more such stories. Cristiano Ronaldo had his heart broken recently. Irina Shayk is now with Bradley Cooper. Then, there’s our very own Bipasha Basu, but we hear that she’s found love again and John is married too.

Here’s wishing all the couples luck, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
