“The first time you marry for love, the second for money, and the third for companionship”- Jackie Kennedy…. This is not me saying but the wife of a famous American President, although it was not applicable in her life but is definitely apt for our newlywed couple in tinsel town… KARAN SINGH GROVER AND BIPASHA BASU!!
The whole month of April was all about making their relationship public, to the masses being subjected to their minutest wedding planning… but before going into celebrating their Big Fat Wedding here let’s take a tour down memory lane with both Karan and Bipasha ji..
Both have had their respective pasts with regard to relationships, Bipasha being the bold bong girl was always open about her boyfriends, be it with Dino Morea who ultimately became her so called ‘ best friend’ and an agony uncle to all her problems.
The next in line was the dashing and oh so handsome John Abraham and I bet she made a lot of girls jealous when she started a live-in with him, but this solid rock relationship also crumbled down after 11 years and John went to marry some Ms Priya and Bipasha started to date a “Hrithik lookalike” by the name of Mr Harman Baweja.
The Harman-Bipasha love story was a blink and miss story, by the time the people actually started looking at them as a couple, they broke away and Bipasha was left all “Alone” again!!
Karan Singh Grover aka KSG was also in his space of relationships. It started with his gup-chup marriage with a TV actress Sharaddha Nigam which fortunately or unfortunately broke in 11 months flat… oh God .. why such cruelty.. You could have let them celebrate their 1st Anniversary atleast !!
Next came his Co-star, the very dainty and pretty Jennifer Winget, their love story began on sets and culminated in marriage to end in a divorce….reason being that Ms Winget was quite tired of KSG’s roving eye .. and like Bipasha , Mr KSG found himself “Alone” too !!
AND THEN CAME THE MOVIE…. And you guessed it right… by the name of ALONE where our two lonely souls met and cupid struck as both were looking for something called “LOVE” in their lives. After months of denial in spite of the various cozy Instagram pics and Twitter statuses, they finally succumbed and declared it loud and clear that “ Haan humne bhi pyar hai”.
Thus began the preparations of the Punjabi-Bong wedding where the whole of India participated as if it was their “Ghar ki Shaadi”..from Mehendi to Cocktails to Marriage and ofcourse the Reception where the entire Bollywood descended… both looked blissfully happy and utterly cute.
Poor KSG was trolled a lot saying that his track record was like that of Olympics…who gets married after every 4 years… and also that he is the most secular guy in our country.. 1st Marriage to a Sikhni, 2nd to a Christian and 3rd to a Hindu.. now waiting for the 4th to a Muslim !!!!
All said and done, right now they are the most romantic couple that bollywood has seen for a while and yes their honeymoon pics from Maldives on Instagram are making everyone go envy with green…but I have one question in my mind and its really making me think….
Is this marriage for love or companionship or two heartbroken people coming together… only time would tell.. but till then we wish this couple a very very happy wedded life and many years of togetherness…….
