Credit it to all the practice they get onscreen if you will, but our Bollywood celebs are just as good at making their better halves feel special in real life as well.
A lifetime of playing the Romeo onscreen and these stars have gotten all the practice they need for the real thing. Here’s a look at seven Bollywood actors and their pretty wives who can proudly lay claim on the most doting husbands in tinsel town:
Not only does hubby Abhishek put his entire schedule on hold when his wife Aishwarya needs him, but he regularly takes to Twitter to prove his smitten he is, as witnessed with this tweet he posted before this year’s Cannes Film festival: Almost 52hrs without sleep! Eyes shutting… and the Mrs. shows up looking like this!! Ok... Eyes wide open now!

Being in a relationship for over ten years is long by Bollywood terms, but Imran Khan’s love for Avantika Malik seems to have tripled post marriage; to the extent that Imran apparently started turning down Bollywood projects so that he could be a hands-on husband while Avantika was expecting. Which, if you ask us, is quite a grand gesture, considering the precarious position of his current Bollywood career.

Even though his supposed intimacy with his co-stars has in the past cast aspersions over the state of his marriage, but Akshay is still counted among Bollywood’s most doting husbands. On the occasion of Twinkle’s 39th birthday, Akshay splurged on a party on a luxury yacht for Twinkle and tweeted, “There’s really no contest when it comes to the best thing in my life. You are the reason why I smile during good times. But more importantly you are the reason why I smile even during bad times.”

Saif Ali Khan
We’d have thought his disastrous first marriage would have left him wary, in keeping with his playboy image onscreen, but after a brief courtship, the Nawab threw himself wholeheartedly into the role of playing a doting husband to gorgeous wife Kareena Kapoor Khan.
After falling for each other in their teens, Riteish and Genelia delighted us by deciding to tie the knot in 2012 and the duo appears to have fallen for each other yet more since. A beaming Riteish has been quoted as saying, “Genelia and I are one person, we are not two people. Falling in love with your friend and that becoming your life is the best thing that can happen to a person.”

He might not be the kind of person to proclaim his love from the rooftops but whenever Aamir and Kiran make a public appearance, one can help but sigh. They have the kind of chemistry and compatibility that dreams are made of. Aamir does well to take care of his lady love.
He may be the hottest man this side of the world but that doesn’t stop him from having eyes only for his lady love and now wife, Priya Runchal. They had a rather public romance but John still protects his wife from the media glare and uncomfortable references to Bipasha.
