It’s all gold and glittery when our favorite Bollywood stars come under the limelight. But even these stars shed down their glam and lead a normal life once they’re home. They spend time with their family and nourish their personal relationships just like all of us. One such important relationship is the one that they share with their in-laws. For us, it may sound very exciting since a lot of celebrities get married to each other and it’s always a house filled with stars! But for them, it’s just a home as regular as anyone else’s.
Not everyone gets to enjoy a warm relationship with their in-laws due to many reasons like distance and disagreements. However, some of these stars are #goals as they strive hard to stay close to their in-laws. It’s quite obvious that if you put in a lot of effort to keep your in-laws happy, it means that you love your partner more than anything. We bet that you can’t stop making “awww” faces to these lovely Bollywood stars and their in-laws.
1) Shahrukh Khan
If you know well about SRK and his lovely wife Gauri’s love story, you’d also know that King Khan’s in-laws weren’t very pleased with him in the beginning. Of course, getting married to a struggling actor from a completely different religious background is something that most parents would disapprove of even today. But time flies! And SRK’s in-laws are nothing but happy for their daughter and son-in-law. In an interview, Gauri shared that Shahrukh jokingly calls his mother-in-law funny names and they share a warm bond. Now we all know how lively and charming SRK is even in his personal life.
2) Priyanka Chopra
PeeCee’s wedding to American pop singer Nick Jonas was nothing less than a dream. One of the best things about her is that she never forgets her roots even when she’s adopting a completely new culture. Her wedding included both the bride and groom’s traditional ceremonies and the couple’s ability to accommodate each other completely reflects on their relationship with their in-laws as well. Priyanka often shares pictures with her in-laws on her Instagram account and it’s pretty obvious that they love our desi girl!
3) Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna are considered to be one of the coolest couples in Bollywood. He’s not just a supportive husband but also a praise-worthy son-in-law. B-town’s hottest action hero is not just our favorite, but he’s his mother-in-law‘ Dimple Kapadia’s favorite too. Akshay helped his mother-in-law in dealing with the court case regarding her deceased husband’s property. He calls her his BFF and never misses an opportunity to praise her.
4) Aishwarya Rai
The former Miss World shares a cute bond with her in-laws Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan. Her love for the Bachchan family is pretty clear from their photographs and videos. While there has been a lot of gossip about the typical saas-bahu rivalry between Aishwarya and Jaya, certain instances like when Aishwarya made a public appearance in Jaya’s saree proves it wrong. Aishwarya behaves very respectfully with her in-laws during public events and award shows.
5) Rani Mukherjee
Queen Rani has not been very vocal about her personal life since her marriage to Aditya Chopra. Soon after their wedding in 2014, there were many rumors regarding her not-so-amazing relationship with her mother in law, Pamela Chopra. However, Pamela’s heart melted when Rani gave birth to her granddaughter Adira. Adira was the first child in their house after a long gap of 42 years! Kids can definitely unite people.
6) Kareena Kapoor
Bebo considers her mother-in-law Sharmila Tagore as an inspiration to have a career and family together. When Kareena got married to Saif Ali Khan, she wore the same outfit that Sharmila wore on her wedding day in 1969! The ghagra was a part of their family tradition and Bebo wore it without any hesitation. When most of the brides these days want a custom-made dress to make their wedding memorable, Kareena wore an old one for the sake of her family’s happiness. Isn’t that adorable?
7) Genelia D’souza
We know Genelia as the cute and bubbly actress who won over thousands of fans in Bollywood as well as in the South Indian movie industries. Genelia and Ritesh Deshmukh are undoubtedly one of the cutest couples of Bollywood ever and their fairytale wedding was truly memorable. Today, Genelia is the mother of two baby boys and her bond with Ritesh’s family is precious. Even though the family went through a rough patch after Ritesh’s father, Vilas Rao Deshmukh’s demise, Genelia always posts his pictures on her Instagram account cherishing his love.
