Bollywood is a lot like a high school group with many students where everyone dates everyone. Mostly, when celebrities from the industry (especially actors and actresses) date, the entire world, or at least parts of the world where people care about Bollywood are aware. But there have been couples who have managed to get together and eventually break-up under the radar.

Here’s a list of 10 such pairs you must have probably forgotten about –

Soha Ali Khan – Siddharth

Dino Morea and Lara Dutta‘s relationship was quite sudden and quite dramatic. Dino was friends with Lara’s long-term boyfriend (and live-in partner) Kelly Dorjee. But after Lara and Kelly broke up, Dino started dating Lara, which we know is a violation of the bro-code. Kelly gave an interview too, accusing Lara of “taking away” his good friend. Dino and Lara broke-up after sometime too. Lara is now married to Mahesh Bhupathi and Dino has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with Nandita Mahtani since a while now.
