It is always fun when real life couples take their love on screen.

Surprisingly, there aren't many such precedents, as actresses usually stay away from the big screen after marriage.

Joginder Tuteja looks at couples who made an exception:

 

Bipasha Basu-Karan Singh Grover
Dangerous

It has been four years since Bipasha and Karan have been married, but they took it easy when it came to their big screen outing as a married couple.

They will be seen in Vikram Bhatt and Mika Singh's production Dangerous, which has Director Bhushan Patel calling the shots.

Patel directed Bipasha and Karan in the 2015 horror film, Alone.

 

Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh
'83

Had there been no lockdown, Deepika and Ranveer would have made their first big screen appearance after their wedding in Kabir Khan's '83, where they play cricket legend Kapil Dev and his wife Romi Dev.

Of course, they have been paired together multiple times before their wedding, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's extravagant films Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat.
