Several Bollywood on-screen pairs who also found their real life partners in the tinsel town, such as Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya, captured hearts with their love stories.

But there are celebs who chose to find love outside Bollywood and opted for arranged marriage.

From Shahid Kapoor to Madhuri Dixit, these successful and classy actors went for arranged marriage.

Here is a list of some such actors: 

Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor, who was once known as 'Casanova' in Bollywood, opted for arranged marriage. After having a serious relationship with Kareena Kapoor and a rumoured affair with Priyanka Chopra, the "Shaandaar" actor got hitched to a Delhi-based Mira Rajput this year.

Karisma Kapoor

After breaking up the engagement with Abhishek Bachchan, Karisma Kapoor tied the knot with Delhi-based businessman Sunjay Kapur. The two had an arranged marriage but the relationship did not last long. Karisma and Sunjay were later divorced and the custody of their two kids went to the actress.

Vivek Oberoi

After all the drama created due to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Salman Khan, Vivek Oberoi was also not doing great in Bollywood. But he found his love in Priyanka Alva with whom he had an arranged marriage in 2010.

Madhuri Dixit Nene

The "Dhak Dhak" girl, who stole several hearts, too married outside Bollywood. Madhuri Dixit had an arranged marriage with a US-based doctor, Shriram Nene. After wedding, she went with her husband to the US to begin her family life.

Esha Deol

Esha Deol's luck didn't work in the film industry and soon she vanished from the silver screen. However, she came into the limelight when she married her childhood friend Bharat Takhtani. It is said the two had an arranged marriage but it seems people are reluctant to believe the fact yet.


Superstar Govinda was too popular when he got married. His mother chose Sunita for him and the actor married his mother's choice. They are still a happy family with two kids.
