So for the love of Bollywood and masala, we’ve dug out some ruins of past and are here to boost your B-town knowledge with 10 Bollywood celebrities and their lesser known affair.

“First and only serious relationship so far.” This is what Arjun had to say about his relationship with Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan.

If sources are to be believed, Ranveer and Ahana were college sweethearts. It was before Ranveer dated Anushka Sharma and Ahana dated Aditya Roy Kapur. They were part of the same friends’ circle and dated each other for a very brief period of time. Guess it was just mere infatuation between the two. Ahana Deol, daughter of superstars, Dharmendra and Hema Malini is now married to Delhi based businessman, Vaibhav Vora, and our quirky Mr. Singh is with Deepika Padukone.
3. Alia Bhatt and Ali Dadarkar
