What better place to find true love than in the arms of the hot star you’re being paid to romance?
When you are living, eating, breathing - and when the script demands - snuggling up to your co-star on the sets of a movie, sparks are bound to fly, and here are seven Bollywood couples who weren’t immune to the magic:
Abhishek & Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Guru
Just when we had made our peace with the fact that Abhishek could land Karishma Kapoor, he started dating and ultimately marrying former Miss World, Aishwarya Rai. How the guy managed to land one hottie after the other remains unanswered, as the source of his charm lies hidden. Well, well hidden.

Saif & Kareena Kapoor Khan, Tashan
Sparks apparently flew between the fresh out of splitsville Kareena and Saif Ali Khan on the sets of Tashan - A movie that you are absolutely forgiven for not remembering. Smart move there, Saif; quickly making the relationship official before she had a chance to see you in the hideous blond avatar and change her mind.

Ranbir Kapoor & Katrina Kaif, Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahaani
After an on-and-off relationship on the sets of Ajab Prem that left us guessing, the duo obliged us with a very public outing on a Spanish beach that set all doubts to rest.

Shahid Kapoor, Every Film
Given his track record of cozying up to his co-stars, (The actor apparently got involved with first Vidya Balan on the sets of Kismat Konnection and later with Priyanka Chopra during the shooting of Kaminey) it doesn’t take Sheldon Cooper to figure out why girls line up around the block to be cast opposite Shahid.

Ranveer Singh & Anushka Sharma, Band Baaja Baraat
Helped along by the generous number of intimate scenes demanded by the script, Ranveer apparently hit it off with co-star Anushka Sharma on the sets of his debut film. A habit that we figure he has yet to break, given the recent tales of him growing close to his Ramleela co-star, Deepika Padukone.

Ajay Devgn & Kajol, Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha
Her onscreen chemistry with SRK might have had the nation sighing, but in real life, Kajol found her one true love in Ajay Devgn on the sets of Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha.

Riteish Deshmukh & Genelia D’souza, Tujhe Meri Kasam
After falling for each other secretly on the sets of Tujhe Meri Kasam in 2003, Riteish & Genelia kept their relationship under wraps for the next couple of years before tying the knot in 2012 and riding off happily into the sunset.
