In its recent and much talked-about ruling, the Supreme Court declared that unmarried couples who have been cohabiting for long will be considered married. Interestingly, in Bollywood, there are several love birds who have been in long live-in relationships.
So, what now? Will the ruling force these celebs to live separately or push them to tie knots soon?
Here are few Bollywood couples who are battling this dilemma at this very moment:
Ranbir Kapoor – Katrina Kaif
After calling Ranbir Kapoor a soulmate and secretly shopping for their love nest, there was a strong buzz last year that the "Bang Bang" star Katrina Kaif has moved in with the alleged beau Ranbir Kapoor. The two have been staying together in their apartment in Bandra for some time now and are speculated to tie the knots soon.
Since cousin Kareena Kapoor married Saif Ali Khan after being in a live-in relationship, people are expecting the same from the younger Kapoor scion too.
Sushant Singh Rajput – Ankita Lokhande
Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande have been living-in together since their days "Pavitra Rishta" days. Their micro-blogging websites are filled with their pictures clicked in the house, in which the duo lives happily with their pet dog. Fans desperately want the two to get married now.
Abhay Deol – Preeti Desai
Former Miss Great Britain Preeti Desai and B-town actor Abhay Deol are much-in-love and have been staying together. Abhay has always been candid about his relationship with Preeti and they have often been spotted together at events.
At the beginning of this year, there were rumours about them splitting. The rumour circulated when organisers of an event sent the "Dev D" actor and Preeti an invitation and Abhay informed them that he will be showing up alone and that they shouldn't expect Desai to accompany him to events now on.
Anushka Sharma – Virat Kohli
There were reports last year that love birds Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma planned to move in together and would rent a house in Versova, Mumbai, close to where the "PK" actress currently resides in, reported DNA.
Whether the actors will move in together or tie knot -- only time will tell. Rumours created waves of them getting married by the end of this year.
