Obsessions can be awesome. Getting caught up in something that it becomes a major part of your life is what has lead to some of the most successful people in the world becoming who they are. But not all obsessions are life-changing, some just make life a lot more fun. Some people watch movies, some listen to music, some visit sevenjackpots to gamble while some sing or dance, with an exciting obsession. But there is one type of obsession that bigger in Indian than in any other country in the world.
Being star struck is a fairly common phenomenon but it reaches a whole new level in India. While the biggest Hollywood stars can brag about having massive bases of every corner of the world, Indian superstars are in a league of their own when it comes to fan obsession.
Indian megastars aren’t just loved by the masses; they are, in every sense of the word, worshipped by them. How many Hollywood stars can claim that no matter what day it is there would be at least a few fans standing outside of their house hoping to just get a tiny glimpse of their face? This is a phenomenon that is very unique to India where no matter how stormy, hot or cold a day it is, there will definitely be a few people stands standing outside the apartment of Salman Khan, just waiting for him to wave that them.
With a nation that is this obsessed with its stars and celebrities perhaps it is no surprise that any news about even the most minor things that happen in a star’s life is something people love to learn and gossip about. There are multiple TV channels and tabloids that are successful because they feed the demand people of India have for every detail of their favorite actors’ or actresses’ life.
While hearing about which actors are friends with each other, who doesn’t like whom and who is going to work with whom next is all cool and fun there is one aspect of the life of these celebrities that the public just can’t get enough of.
Watching these people you admire find love in their real lives gives us hope that maybe one day, so can we. And this is the main reason why people are so obsessed with the love life of every star they adore.
The Hottest Couple in Bollywood
Disha Patani may have started her career in the Telugu Film industry but it was when she made a to switch Bollywood with MS Dhoni’s biopic in 2016 was when she truly entered the public’s eye. In just a few months of making a Bollywood debut, she became one of the most searched, most followed and most popular actresses in the country.
People got obsessed with Disha Patani at a breakneck speed but given the fact that she is perhaps one of the most good-looking humans to have ever lived, it was hardly surprising. She reached the level of superstardom almost instantly and when her second major Bollywood movie, “Baaghi 2” came out, she was a major pull for people coming to see it.
But you don’t simply get to that level of fame without having your personal life being shoved directly into the spotlight. When media realized that a new girl was taking the movie-loving country by a storm, they deployed their agents to try to find out everything they possibly could about her and, to their credit, they did find out one piece of information that was particularly interesting.
Tiger Shroff has been trying to become a superstar ever since his debut with Heropanti and while a few of his movies have performed well, he has never seemed that appealing to the majority of the public. In fact, most people that do like him do so because they love making jokes at him.
But when the media reported that Disha Patani and Tiger Shroff were dating, the public went into a frenzy. Seeing two young attractive people working in Bollywood finding love in each other was worth talking about and obsessing over and even though neither party has ever confirmed their alleged romance, their fans are very good at reading between the lines.
They become arguably the hottest couple in Bollywood and everyone was obsessed with their relationship by the time Baaghi 2 came out and the hype didn’t die down even afterwards.
Trouble in Paradise
Unfortunately, it was recently reported that after almost 3 years of being a relationship the couple decided to break it up, much to the dismay of the fans who had been following their relationship for years at this point.
They wanted to know the reason for this rather sudden separation and Mumbai Mirror—living up to its reputation—delivered. If their report is to be believed then it was the growing closeness between Shroff and his co-star in his upcoming movie which is a sequel to 2012 hit, “Student of the Year”, which created trouble in paradise for the power couple and for the sake of peace they decided to call it quits after a lot of heated arguments.
While this is definitely sad news for people who were rooting for this couple, it does open up the conversation about what is next for two newly single people and that is exciting in its own right.
The Mumbai Mirror report does point towards a potential romance between the “Student of the Year 2” co-stars Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria but it might be a little too early to climb on this particular bandwagon. Only time will tell with the alleged closeness between the two grows into something a little for interesting and exciting.
Valentine’ Day, 2019
While speculation was running rampant about their rumoured break up, it came to a head on Valentine ’s Day 2019 and everything changed.
The power couple decided to tease their fans in a wonderfully creative way. Disha Patani posted a pic of herself on her Instagram profile in a white outfit with her a finger on her lips with the caption, “Someone popped the question, and I said yes…” and around the same time Tiger Shroff posted a picture on his own Instagram handle wearing a similar outfit and the same pose with the caption, “Turns out I’m out I’m taken”.
Not only is this a very clear yet cryptic way in which they have confirmed their relationship but it also implies one other thing. Disha Patani and Tiger Shroff are no longer boyfriend and girlfriend. They are not fiancées and these pics were posted after Tiger had popped the big question and had received the best possible answer.
Just when their fans thought it was time for moorings, the couple pulled a complete 180 and instead gave them a brand new reason to celebrate. All the while giving us a million things to speculate from where and when the wedding will be to who will and who won’t get invited. 2017 and 2018 have given us some of the best and most talked about weddings in Bollywood history and 2019 is shaping up to be no different at all.
Nevertheless, there are exciting and happy times ahead for the superstar couple and their fans.
