These pairs came on 'Koffee with Karan' as couples but later broke up!
All three became the most loved couples in India at one point, but love between them soon fizzled out
As we gear up to see new parents Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput make their grand entry on the popular television show Koffee with Karan, we are reminded of how far this hunk has come.
From being the most eligible bachelor to a father, Shahid has come a long way and he has only his better half to thank. In fact, if you recall he called Mira his normalising factor and somebody who often keeps him grounded.
"I think the fact that we are different works for us. It is a nice thing that we are different from each other. But at the same time we are good at communication, we get along well,” he once said about his petite wife, adding that she makes him feel "very normal."
But before he married the Delhi-based Rajput through an arranged setup, he was dating the now mum-to-be Kareena Kapoor Khan. The two were quite open about their relationship and even appeared on the very same show as a couple in 2007.
But they soon drifted apart and now happily married to their respective partners. The two even bumped into each other during one of the red carpet events where Kareena stole the show with her baby bump. They discussed their personal lives and are now extremely happy for each other.
“Yes, it was heartwarming to see her pregnant because I’ve been through (that experience of) having just had a baby. I asked her when she was going to deliver, she told me it’s next month. She asked me about Misha. It was nice,” said the doting dad.
Well, they clearly are an example of let bygones be bygones, because they recently worked together in the hit Udta Punjab. Here's hoping, their kids get along well too!

Bipasha Basu and John Abraham
Hot off the block with their sultry sleeper Jism, actors Bipasha Basu and John Abraham graced the famous couch of Koffee With Karan in 2007. Their sizzling chemistry was on full-display and the couple dated for almost a decade before calling it quits.
In fact, in interviews post their breakup Bipasha did not have many great things to say about John, Abraham admitted that Bipasha was indeed a homely girl and a very caring girlfriend.
"After being in a relationship for eight years you want to try out everything to make it work. And when it still isn't working out, it's still not easy to break up instantly as you have some really fond memories with the person. Bipasha was a very strong person and that's what I loved about her. As a girlfriend she was a caring and nice person. She was very homely unlike the image created by people," he reportedly said.
But all that was in the past, because the two are now happily married and settled. While John Abraham married marketing expert Priya Ranchal, Basu married television actor Karan Singh Grover in a star-studded affair this year in April.

Sussane Khan and Hrithik Roshan
Bollywood's golden couple Sussane Khan and Hrithik Roshan were once hailed as 'a jodi made in heaven.' The two were childhood sweethearts who poured their hearts out twice on the show. They first appeared in 2005 and then again in 2011.
But the couple divorced in 2014, and have two sons Hrehaan, 10 and Hridhaan, 8. While many speculated that there was a third person in their relationship, Sussane finally cleared the air in an interview to Femina this year.
"We had reached a stage in our lives where I decided that it's better we weren't together. It was important to be aware and not be in a false relationship. We are close (friends)," she reportedly said.
She also added, "We do chat a lot even though we don't hangout together anymore. But above all, we are very committed to our children. We are respectful towards each other. When children are involved, it's important to put our differences aside and protect them."
The two maintain a cordial relationship, and like any other couple who has broken up, they are moving on with their lives.
