It’s been more than a decade now, but nobody can forget Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor‘s love affair that was one of the most adorable affairs of those times. The estranged couple was seen in many movies together and their relationship was a serious one. But destiny had other plans as the two parted ways and Bebo found solace in Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan, while Shahid opted for an arranged marriage and married a girl who was an outsider to Bollywood, Mira Rajput.
What exactly happened between the lovers-turned-strangers? Was it infidelity or something else? There have been various theories over their love going kaput.
Co-incidentally, this year Kareena Kapoor Khan too announced her pregnancy. She became a trendsetter of sorts with her maternity wardrobe and public appearances even in the last trimester. Although, Saif has two grown up kids, Sara and Ibrahim from his previous marriage to actress Amrita Singh, this is a first for Bebo. So, it's indeed a lovely co-incidence that the two estranged lovers will be proud parents in the same year. Both the actors worked in 'Udta Punjab' this year, although not opposite each other. But, they have surely matured as individuals and left the past behind.
Shahid and Mira blessed with a baby girl
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput were blessed with their first child, a baby girl on August 26, 2016. On September 19, Sasha revealed the name of his princess, Misha (an amalgamation of the initials of Mira and Shahid).
Shahid's rumoured love affairs to his wedding...
On one hand where Kareena was madly in love with Saif, Shahid was nursing a broken heart and had his share of love affairs with Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra. After a string of alleged love affairs, Shahid finally settled down with a girl of his father's choice, Mira Rajput. Mira was a family friend and the two had met on a few occasions. The age gap of 11 years did not bother the two as they settled into matrimony on July 7, 2015.
Kareena and Saif Ali Khan's love story
Kareena and Saif's growing closeness on the sets of 'Tashan' culminated into a serious love affair. The two started dating in the year 2007, when Kareena and Shahid's affair had ended. Ironically, Shahid and Kareena's biggest hit together, 'Jab We Met' released the same year. Saif and Bebo's love affair resulted in marriage after dating for 5 years. The two tied the knot on October 16, 2012.
The unfortunate split
Unfortunately, their relationship didn't stand the test of time. Things took a turn for the worse when Kareena went to Leh to shoot for 'Tashan' with Saif Ali Khan whereas Shahid left for Canada to shoot for 'Kismat Konnection' in the year 2007. It was said that Bebo's growing fondness for her 'Tashan' co-actor Saif Ali Khan was one of the main reasons for the split. When the news of the two having an affair reached Shahid, he immediately severed all ties with Kareena. Also, rumours started surfacing that Shahid started getting close to Vidya Balan post his silent breakup with Bebo, but that was only till the movie lasted. The long distance relationship and misunderstandings took a heavy toll on their relationship and the two went their separate ways.
Kareena and Shahid's PDA and open confessions
Their 3-year-long love story courted some controversy too. An MMS scandal was leaked online. The couple's PDA moment as they indulged in a lip kiss at a restaurant, was also one of the most headline-grabbing moment. Although, the two were least affected by it as according to them, it was just a kiss shared by two lovers and there was nothing to make a hue and cry about it. Bebo had even confessed her love for Shahid on the first season of 'Koffee With Karan'. She had said, "Yes he is someone who plays a very special part in my life. He brings a smile to my face and a twinkle in my eye. So, he is that special someone, yes." She had even confessed that she would love to marry him.
Shahid and Kareena's love story

The two acted in many movies together like 'Fida', '36 China Town', 'Chup Chup Ke' and 'Jab We Met'. Their love story was a perfect one and in fact Bebo was so much in love that she even changed her lifestyle and habits. She turned a vegetarian for Shahid and also started taking a keen interest in spiritualism.
