When was the last time you looked at a Bollywood couple and said ‘aww, so cute’? Well, we are sure it would not be long back. For years, B-town celebrities have given us #relationshipgoals of sorts, setting a benchmark of love and romance. In fact, certain pairs have managed to spread love, literally, on-screen as well as off-screen. But all is not well every time when it comes to the high profile lives of our very own film stars. They too, experience heartbreak at some point in their lives. Ouch!
The year 2019 was no different. While some couples expressed their love publicly, some had to deal with broken hearts and relationships. Who is dating who and who had a sad break-up has always been the hot topic of discussion in the glamorous world of Bollywood!
So, here’s a list of hook-ups and break-ups that Bollywood witnessed in the year 2019:
Ananya Panday – Aryan Khan
We, at PeepingMoon, were the first ones to inform you on July 19, 2019, that Bollywood’s King Khan’s son Aryan Khan is not seeing any London blogger. He is supposed to be dating Bollywood’s hot and young Next Big Thing – Bhavana’s and Chunky Pandey’s lovely daughter Ananya Pandey who made her debut this year in Dharma Productions’ Student of The Year 2 and overnight became an internet sensation and the media’s darling. Yes, that’s what we heard. And we are sure to have broken quite some young hearts with this news. Even though the duo never makes an appearance together, they are often snapped partying and having lavish dinners with their friends that include Ananya’s BFFs Suhana Khan-Shanaya Kapoor and Aryan’s bunch of non-Bollywood friends. Can't wait for this millennial couple to make it official!
Sara Ali Khan - Kartik Aaryan
If Ananya’s and Aryan’s relationship set gossip mills churning, it would not be wrong to say that Sara Ali Khan’s and Kartik Aaryan’s love story was one of the most talked-about relationships this year. They were Bollywood’s 'IT' couple and love was definitely in the air – until news of their break up flooded all over! It all began when Sara openly confessed on Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan 6 about having a crush on B-town’s chocolate boy Kartik. There was no turning back for the duo after that. From posting mushy posts for each other to surprise birthday visits, Sara and Kartik seemed to be the dream couple. But soon after the rumoured couple wrapped their first film together – Imtiaz Ali’s Aaj Kal, reports of their break up went viral. PeepingMoon.com sources had told that Kartik and Sara have partied ways before even making it official. Ever since then, the actors have begun maintaining distance from each other. Well, we hope the two reconcile and bring back their impeccable and unmissable chemistry.

Say for that matter, Ileana and Andrew have also deleted each other's photos from their respective social media platforms, further confirming their separation.

Well, all is well that ends well!
