Valentine's Day is the stuff loveand loversare made of. takes a look at how someBollywoodstar couplesmet and fell in love:

Falling in love, legs first!Gauri, Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan was walking down a New Delhi road when he stopped dead in his tracks. He saw the most amazing pair of legs in a short skirt.

Even before he saw who they belonged to, he claims he was in love. It was Gauri Khan.

He calls her Gauri Maa.

Gauri was everythingShah Rukh was not. Cool, classy, sophisticated. Hewas sloppy, hyper and hated dressing He says the credit for turning an animal like him into a man goes to Gauri.

In fact, when her family opposed their wedding because he was Muslim and she wasHindu, hewooed Gauri's family in true Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge style.

Later, when Gauri fought with him because he came to Mumbai to become an actor, he was miserable. When he heard Gauri was in Mumbai staying with a friend, he literally combed the streets and found her!

Traffic-stopper!Hrithik and Suzanne

Hrithik Roshan saw Suzanne Khan at a traffic signal, much like his first meeting with Amisha Patel in Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai.

It was love at first sight.

The shy Duggu (Hrithik's nickname) took his time getting to know actor-director Sanjay Khan's lovely daughter.

She stuck by him through his superstardom phase post Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai. Duggu knew he had found his soulmate.

Marriage was obviously on the cards. The venue was his father-in-law's lush resort in Bangalore. The Hrithik Roshan-Suzanne Khan marriageis still one of the most talked about weddings in the industry.

Record-breaking!Ayesha and Jackie Shroff

This one is literally a record-breaking love story. Ayesha Dutt first saw Jackie Shroff at a record store. He was not a Hero then. Ayesha was in school.

He walked up to her and drawled in that sexy voice of his,"Hi, can I help you?"

Ayesha says she died and went to heaven.

Jackie helped her choose a record and walked out of the store.

Ayesha went back home and told her mom, "I have found the guy I am going to marry." After that they met, dated and married. Now they live happily ever after. Love is like that.

BMW -- Be My Wife!Mana and Suniel Shetty

Suniel Shetty met Mana Kadri when he was a long-haired stud streaking down Mumbai's plush Napean Sea Road on his sleek mobike.

Pastry Palace was a place hefrequented the evenings to meet his buddies. He saw Manathere one day. Life was never the same again.

The enterprising Shetty got friendly with Mana's sister because he wanted to be introduced to Mana. He was the dada of the locality, used to ride jeeps and roam around with a bunch of tough guys. Mana said Na-Na.

ButShettywooed her with chocolates, letters, champagne, the works.

Finally, Mana gave in. After nine years of dating each other, they married.

His wedding present to her was a BMW which said,'BMW. BE MY WIFE!'

Through thick and thinGovinda and Sunita

He was the Virar ka chokra. She was the girl next door.

Chi Chi became Govinda the star. The woman who stood by him through it all was Sunita. In spite of his liason with actress Neelam, Sunita stood by his side.

Luckily for her, she had hismother Nirmala Devi's support. So when Govinda confessed to mommy about his love, mommy made sure he tied the knot immediately.

Today, they have two lovely childrenNarmada and Yash. Sunita is still baby-sitting her third child. Govinda, that is.

Dancing his way to her heartBobby and Tanya Deol

Bobby Deol first set his eyes on the gorgeous Tanya Ahuja at Trattoria, the Italian restaurant at Mumbai's Hotel President.

He had walked in with friends to relish anItalian meal but he came face to face with a real life dish. He was hot and happening with women but the beauteous Tanya couldn't be bothered.

Bobby was smitten and spent days calling her up for a date. Finally, she agreed. It was chat mangni pat byah.
