It’s wedding season in Bollywood as many celebrities are planning to tie the knot early next year



Saif Ali Khan - Kareena Kapoor


Dating since:

2007


One of the most awaited weddings of the Hindi film industry; rumour mills have been speculating about actors Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan’s marriage ever since the couple revealed they are dating, until Saif’s actor sister Soha spilled the beans about their wedding plans. “They (Saif and Kareena) are looking forward to getting married in March next year,” Soha said.



The dates seem to be pretty close as the groom-to-be too hinted at a February wedding. “We plan to get married in February 2012,” Saif had said.



Professional gain:

The couple just might have an added advantage, as their long-awaited movie, Agent Vinod, is tentatively expected to come around the same time as their wedding. The buzz just might get bigger for both Saif,41, and Kareena, 31, personally and professionally.



John Abraham - Priya Marwah


Dating since:

2011


Actor John Abraham has constantly been linked to investment banker Priya Marwah since his split with his girlfriend of eight years, actor Bipasha Basu. Though the 38-year-old doesn’t clear his stand about Marwah, their regular outings together have made everyone believe they are an item. Abraham’s recent confession about getting married, however, rests the case. “It’s my wish to get


married soon. I would love to settle down in life. It is human nature. There was a time when I did not want to get settled down, but today, I want to,” he said.



Professional gain:

With many of his movies bombing at the box office, Abraham’s sinking career seems to have already got a new lease of life with Desi Boyz, perhaps the special lady in his life is proving to be lucky for him. She just might get him back on track.



Ritesh Deshmukh- Genelia D’Souza


Dating since:

2007


They are in! They are not! Dating since their debut flick, Tujhe Meri Kasam, actors Ritesh Deshmukh, 32, and Genelia D’Souza, 24, have constantly denied their relationship for the last eight years, until they started making public appearances together last year. Rumours are rife that Deshmukh’s family was apparently not happy with the relationship because of personal reasons. Regardless, the actors got engaged last year. Deshmukh again denied the same despite the two being spotted going on regular shopping sprees in Mumbai. They are, however, now reported to get hitched early next year.



Professional gain:

February might just be the month of double jubilation for the real life couple, as they also have their flick, Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya, up for release on February 17. If the film turns out to be a hit, they could become another real life Bollywood couple starring in films together.



Soha Ali Khan - Kunal Khemu


Dating since:

2010


Their relationship might not be the talk of the town as compared to Soha’s brother Saif, but the actor has reportedly decided to settle down with her actor beau Kunal Khemu, 28, in the coming year. “I am in a comfortable space. We are both independent, with our careers going well. We have met each other’s parents and have their approval,” Soha, 33, had said recently. It might not be as big as Saif and Kareena’s upcoming wedding, but the guest list of the event will surely have some big names.



Professional gain:

Apart from a couple of movies together, Kunal and Soha might get lucky on the ad front, with endorsements falling in their kitty. Maybe, the magic that didn’t work on the big screen, might work on TV.



Vidya Balan- Siddharth Roy Kapur


Dating since:

2010


Their eyes met while Vidya Balan, 33, was shooting for UTV’s production No One Killed Jessica, which was executive produced by Roy Kapur, and since then they have been spotted taking long walks together by beach sides in Goa. Speculations were also rife during the shooting of The Dirty Picture that they have clandestinely got hitched, but Balan denied saying, “I am enjoying my courtship period now.” Sources close to the actor have, however, confirmed that Balan will soon get a new surname in the coming year.



Professional gain:

While this might be a first-of-its-kind marriage between an actor and a corporate head in Bollywood, their wedlock just might make Balan a regular in her hubby’s films.
