Going by the adage, it is love and not age that matters in a relationship, some of our Bollywood celebrities did not mind the wide age gap to become a couple. Here is a list of few celeb-couples for whom age is just a number.
Dilip Kumar – Saira Bano
Almost half of the age of her husband, this ethereal beauty married the Prince of Indian Cinema, Dilip Kumar, in year 1966. Indeed, age was never an issue in their marriage. Saira Bano and Dilip Kumar remain blissfully in love even after spending around five decades together.
Dharmendra – Hema Malini
Popularly known as the He-Man of Bollywood, Dharmendra, ardently wooed Hema Malini, and married her, despite of being already married and being thirteen years older to her. This Bollywood celebrity couple shares a cordial relationship and has two daughters of the wedlock.
Saif Ali Khan – Amrita Singh
The ‘Chote Nawaab’ of Bollywood was just 21 year old when he married the then 33 year old Amrita Singh. Although, their marriage worked for not more than 13 years, the wide age difference between Saif and Amrita raised eyebrows at their union.
Boney Kapoor – Sridevi
The suave actress created a furor when she married Boney Kapoor in year 1996. It was rumored that Sridevi was already six months pregnant with his child. The age difference between this actor-producer couple is around eight years.
Sanjay Dutt – Manyata Dutt
Better known for his ‘Khalnayak’ image, Sanjay Dutt married Manyata, his third wife in the year 2008. The age gap of 19 years between this Bollywood celebrity couple, din’t appear to affect their relationship. In fact, Sanju married Manyata, going against his family including his daughter Trishala.
Saif Ali Khan – Kareena Kapoor
Saif has been known for his Casanova figure, after he separated from his ex-wife Amrita Singh. Presently, he is in relationship with Bebo, who is reportedly around 11 years younger to him. They make Bollywood’s sexiest couple.
Farhan Akhtar – Adhuna Bhabhani
This director-turned-actor is married to hairstylist Adhuna Bhabhani who is six years elder to him. They set a perfect example of a Cougar relationship. This age difference has never been an issue in their 12 year old marriage.
Dev Patel – Freida Pinto
The ‘Slumdog millionaire’ fame Dev Patel was called ‘just a kid’ not a long ago by his co-star Frieda Pinto. However, things seem to change drastically for the new couple of the tinsel town but the six years age difference ( Freida is the older one!) doesn’t seem to affect their dating.
