As we all know, the month of February is symbolized as the month of love, which means love is in the air! If you ask me “Pyaar kya hai?” I would say, love varies from person to person and hence, remains an undefined emotion to date.
Today is Valentine’s Day and the world, including us, is celebrating this undefined emotion today. So, we thought why not take a trip down memory lane and share with you the love stories of our favourite celebrities.
Fawad Khan & Sadaf Khan
The Pakistani heartthrob, Fawad Khan met and got instantly smitten by Sadaf when he was merely 17-years-old. They both attended different branches of the same school, but never came around to talking in person as Fawad could not muster up the courage to do so.
As Fawad developed his diabetic condition at the tender age of 17, Sadaf began to develop feelings for him. This lead to something special brewing between them. From chatting online with each other to Fawad being the conventional romantic by waiting outside Sadaf’s college for her to finally sending a marriage proposal, it has been one rocky road for both. The couple tied the knot in November 2005 after a seven-year courtship.
Fawad and Sadaf have been together since they were teenagers and now have two children.
Ali Zafar & Ayesha Fazli
Another case of love at first sight, Ali fell head over heels for Ayesha in a chance meeting in the year 2000. Way before Ali entered the industry, he used to be a different sort of artist, one who would draw sketches of people in a hotel lobby.
This is where Ali laid his eyes on his now wife, Ayesha. His lady love got her sketch made from Ali and the rest, as they say, is history. After a long courtship, Ali and Ayesha decided to introduce each other to their respective parents who happily agreed to the proposal.
The couple tied the knot in July 2009 in Lahore and are now parents to two beautiful children.
Shaan Shahid & Amina Bandey
The recurrence of ‘love at first sight’ seems to be a natural phenomenon in the love lives of our celebrities. Shaan and Amina met at an art gallery where his now wife was a student. Shaan was a substitute teacher for the class that Amina was attending.
Just in a week of Shaan’s meeting with Amina, the superstar had sent a marriage proposal to her. The couple is now proud parents to four beautiful girls, three of whom happen to be triplets.
Muneeb Butt & Aiman Khan
Definitely the cutest couple of our industry, Muneeb Butt and Aiman Khan met on the sets of their first telefilm together at the tender age of 21 & 15, respectively. The couple used to address each other as bhai & behn on the sets (awkward much).
A year on, both worked together on a drama and became close friends while still not have fallen for each other. The two of them used to exchange messages with each other frequently where Aiman cheekily told Muneeb she wished to marry him.
While the message was intended as a joke, it became the start of their relationship. From friends to lovebirds, the couple got engaged in 2017 and married each other (do we even need to tell you?) in December 2018.
Danish Taimoor & Ayeza Khan
Being as straightforward as he could be and instead of taking things slow, Danish directly asked Ayeza for her hand in marriage. As the courtship progressed, things took a turn for the worse due to family problems which even led to a breakup between the couple.
But as they say, what’s meant to be will always find a way. And surely the couple were brought together by destiny and married in 2014. Five years of marriage and blessed with two children, the couple looks adorable together.
Asad Siddiqui & Zara Noor Abbas
Zara recalls seeing Asad on screen for the first time on the show, Taakay ki Ayegi Baraat. This was primarily because Zara’s khala, Bushra Ansari, was a part of the show. Funnily enough, it was Bushra Ansari who played cupid to these two when she introduced them to each other.
Although both of them had been married to different people before, fate had a different story planned for them as their unions did not work out. Asad and Zara married each other in 2017.
Farhan Saeed & Urwa Hocane
While it was Zara’s khala who brought her and Asad together, Urwa’s sister Mawra being a huge Jal fan got her sister hooked on to the band’s songs. The couple met through a mutual friend at a get-together, bonding instantly and eventually falling in love as time progressed.
Farhan proposed to Urwa in the most romantic possible way in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and the couple tied the knot in December 2016.
Shahroz Sabzwari & Syra Yousaf
This adorable duo met at a friend’s wedding during dance practices, and it was love at first sight for Shahroz. The young love was blossoming as Shahroz was 19 and Syra was 18 years old.
But while the young couple started dating in 2006, their relationship saw its shares of ups and downs. Eventually, both of them were brought together due to their on-screen pairing in a drama serial. This is what led Shahroz to propose Syra for marriage.
The couple settled down in 2012. Seven years of marriage and blessed with one child, the couple still looks young and in love as before.
