Most couples find their soulmate in their field of work because it’s easy to understand the importance of a proper work-life balance. And especially in a field like Bollywood it’s hard to have a love blossom outside the tinsel town. But there are some stars who have managed to break that barrier and marry their childhood sweethearts and stick with them.
1. Shah Rukh Khan – Gauri Chibber
It was love at first sight for this ‘king of romance’ when he saw Gauri Chibber during his school days. The damsel cast her spell on him and finally they got married on October 25, 1991. Initially, Gauri did not pay much heed to his advances, but the Badshaah kept chasing the girl and managed to win her heart. Belonging to a different community, it was all the more difficult for him to convince her parents, but ultimately he did it and tied the knot with his lady love. We really appreciate this childhood love that is still going strong.

And, once they started dating, he could not think of anyone else to spend his life with. Breaking a million hearts, he tied the knot with Sussanne in 2000.
