The Age Gaps Between Romantic Leads In These 35 Bollywood Movies Will Shock You



The curious case of male actors getting older and their leading ladies getting younger.


While it’s safe to say that the plot of Atrangi Re was a tad bit convoluted, Akshay Kumar and Sara Ali Khan did seem to be romantically involved for a major chunk of the film. And what is their age difference, you ask? 28 years!


Akshay and Manushi Chhillar were romantic leads in Samrat Prithviraj, playing Prithviraj Chauhan and Sanyogita, respectively, despite having an age gap of 29 years!


Kiara Advani, who was Akshay Kumar’s leading lady in the 2020 film, Laxmii, is 25 years his junior.


Bhumi Pednekar, his Toilet: Ek Prem Katha co-star, is 21 years younger than Akshay.

On the other hand, Kriti Sanon, Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 4 and Bachchhan Paandey co-star, is 22 years his junior.

It really seems like I have a bone to pick with Akshay Kumar but you can’t blame me, given the ever-increasing age gap he shares with his female co-stars. Yet another instance is that of Amy Jackson, his Singh Is Bliing co-actor, being almost 25 years younger than him.


Akshay and Katrina Kaif have been paired opposite each other in as many as eight films, with audiences absolutely loving their on-screen chemistry. However, it is interesting to note that they have a 15-year age gap!


Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan have worked as co-stars in six films (with another one in the pipeline) and have also been a couple in real life. However, many of us tend to forget that Salman is 17 years older than Katrina.


Salman Khan has also been paired opposite Disha Patani in films like Radhe and a small portion of Bharat, despite Disha being 26 years his junior.

Zee Studios

Interestingly, actress Sonali Kulkarni, who is eight years younger than Salman, played his mother in Bharat.


Sonakshi Sinha, who has been Salman’s romantic interest in three Dabangg films, is 21 years younger than him.

Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision

Sonakshi has also worked in a plethora of films opposite Akshay Kumar, who is 19 years her senior.


Saiee Manjrekar, who played Khushi, a young Chulbul Pandey’s love interest in Dabangg 3, is a whopping 32 years younger than Salman Khan.


Jacqueline Fernandez, who has been paired opposite Salman Khan in films like Kick and Race 3, is 20 years his junior.


Salman was almost 20 years old when Sonam Kapoor, his Prem Ratan Dhan Payo co-star, was born.


Moreover, Salman was 22 when Anushka Sharma, his leading lady in Sultan, made her debut in…this world.

Yash Raj Films

Anushka has also been paired opposite Akshay Kumar, who is 20 years her senior.


Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan have been romantically entangled / married in almost four films, with Anushka making her Bollywood debut opposite him in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi at the mere age of 20. However, did you know that they have an age gap of 22 years?!


Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, yet another “hit pairing”, have a 20-year age gap between them.


Mahira Khan, SRK’s Raees co-star, is 19 years his junior.

Red Chillies Entertainment


On the other hand, Katrina Kaif, his love interest in Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Zero, is 17 years younger than Shah Rukh.


Rakul Preet Singh, Ajay Devgn’s De De Pyaar De and Runway 34 co-star, is 22 years younger than him.

T-Series Films

I’ll have to admit, however, that the story of De De Pyaar De is about Ajay Devgn’s character falling for a woman half his age, but his frequent pairing with Rakul does seem a bit awkward.


Sonakshi Sinha, who has been paired opposite Ajay in several films, including Son of Sardaar and Action Jackson, is 18 years his junior.


Did you know that Ajay Devgn was 28 years old when his Shivaay co-star, Sayyesha Saigal was born?


Moreover, Tamannaah, Ajay’s Himmatwala co-star, is 21 years younger than him.


Tamannaah and Saif Ali Khan, who were each other’s “Caller Tune” in Humshakals, have a 19-year age gap between them.


I am pretty sure you already knew that Aamir Khan’s PK co-star, Anushka Sharma, is 23 years his junior.


But, did you also know that Asin, his leading lady in Ghajini, is 21 years younger than him?


Meanwhile, his Dhoom 3 and Thugs of Hindostan co-actor, Katrina Kaif, is 18 years his junior.


Not many people realise this, but Hrithik Roshan is 19 years older than his Super 30 co-actor, Mrunal Thakur.


Moreover, Pooja Hegde, his leading lady in Mohenjo Daro, is 17 years younger than Hrithik.


Yes, he looks a lot younger than his actual age, but, as of today, Anil Kapoor is 65 years old. He played Kareena Kapoor Khan’s husband in the 2005 movie Bewafaa, despite their age difference of 24 years!


Furthermore, his co-star, Rani Mukerji was only 23 years old when their film, Nayak: The Real Hero, released. Anil was 45 at the time.


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was cast opposite Anil in Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai, is 17 years his junior.

S.K. Film Enterprises

They were also seen in the film Taal in 1999.


Anil Kapoor was also paired opposite Ameesha Patel, who is 19 years younger than him, in Race 2.

UTV Motion Pictures

We have also seen him opposite Sameera Reddy, 22 years his junior, in Race, while Mallika Sherawat, his Welcome co-star, is 20 years younger than Anil.


I can’t possibly forget the fact that Shefali Shah, who plays Amitabh Bachchan’s wife in Waqt: The Race Against Time, is 30 years younger than him!

Eros International

In the film, Shefali also played Akshay Kumar’s mother despite Akshay being five years older than her!


We’ve all had innumerable repeat viewings of Sooryavansham on Set Max, but, did you notice that Soundarya, Amitabh Bachchan’s co-star, was only 27 when the film released, while he was 57 years old?!

Padmalaya Combines

Jayasudha, his other co-actor, is 16 years younger than Amitabh.


While the film Nishabd is a bit of an outlier because its story essentially revolved around the age difference between the leads, watching a 65-year-old Amitabh Bachchan romancing a 19-year-old Jiah Khan was certainly uncomfortable.

Ram Gopal Verma

I am also reminded of movies such as Cheeni KumHaraamkhor, and Akshaye Khanna and Dimple Kapadia’s arc in Dil Chahta Hai, where the signifiant age difference between the actors basically drove the plot. However, these stories were all told sensibly and were handled with sensitivity, and it wouldn’t entirely be appropriate to place them on this list.

Why is it that actresses have an expiration date based on their age but their male counterparts don’t? When will this deep-seated ageism in Bollywood start to unravel? While OTT platforms have certainly brought about a refreshing change with more age-appropriate casting, mainstream films are yet to follow suit. I suppose all we can do at this point, is wait (and perhaps fossilize in the process).

Which cringeworthy age gaps did I miss? Let me know in the comments!


This Couple Has Unbelievably Strict Rules For Their Wedding And It’s Causing Major Drama



Couple Divides Families with Strict Wedding Rules

Hi. You read the headline, so you know this Am I the Asshole Reddit thread is gonna be juicy. Without further ado, here are the details of a woman who asked if she is the asshole for all of the rules she is enforcing on her wedding day…

Reddit user u/Calm-Blueberry2618 starts off the thread by saying, “Before y’all jump to any conclusions about how my fiancé needs to run away from me, how unhinged I am, and what a poor man he’s for dealing with me, let me clarify that these rules for the wedding were mutually agreed on by both me and my fiancé, and many of them were his idea.”

Below we will list each rule and then why her family is upset about each one.

Here is rule number one: “Unplugged ceremony and reception until dinner is over and the dance party starts. That means no phones at all unless it is a huge emergency.”

Here is why the family is upset: “People were okay with the ceremony part, but they found the dinner part too much. Many of my parent friends also said that since they’re leaving their kids at home, they should at least be able to check their phones for their kids’ babysitters. I said if I made an exception for them, I’d have to make it for everyone, so no. Unplugged means unplugged. Checking with your kids is not an emergency. If something serious happens, you’ll know.”

Rule number two: “Color scheme and strict dress code. All black color schemes and mandatory dresses for women and tuxedos for men. No pants allowed for women.”

Why the family is upset: “I got reactions for this for two reasons. One reason was that my aunt who’s been mourning her dead husband for over two years just got rid of black clothes a couple of months ago, tried to move on, and claims wearing black makes her depressive. Another issue was the mandatory dress as my husband’s sister has body dysphoria and hates dresses on her and always wears pants. Again, if we make an exception for two people, we’ll have to make an exception for everyone.”

Rule number three: “Bridesmaid diets. We’ve ordered the bridesmaid’s dresses months in advance. So they’ll stay on the weight they are right now. If you’re bigger size, do whatever is in your power to stay big. If you’re skinny, quit fast food for a few months and stay skinny. If the dresses don’t fit you, we’re gonna have a fuckin’ problem, so stick to your fuckin’ diets.”

Why the family is upset: “They had an issue with this, claiming I can’t police their eating habits. One of my bridesmaids claims she developed an eating disorder from that rule, but there’s no official diagnosis, so IDK if that’s valid.”

Rule number four: “My Maid of Honor’s (MOH) daughter is supposed to be our flower girl, but my MOH claims she can’t since her kid will have to stay with a babysitter at a hotel after the ceremony. She lives four hours away from me and where I’ll be having my wedding. She planned on leaving her daughter with her mom to save money on babysitters and refuses to bring the kid as a flower girl and leave her at the hotel with a babysitter.”

Why the family is upset: This one is more between the MOH and u/Calm-Blueberry2618 — but I think it is pretty self explanatory.

U/Calm-Blueberry2618 said her in-laws have been against most of the rules from the start. “My parents supported us until now, but my mom got so mad that she said our wedding is doomed from the get-go with these dumbass rules. Many people are canceling on us last minute, and bridesmaids are threatening to drop out,” she concluded.

As you can imagine, Reddit users did not hold back. “You can make all the rules you want, but be ready to have fewer people at your wedding if you persist so rigidly. Also, don’t use your MOH’s child as a prop. It’s her child, not ‘the kid.'”


“You’re an asshole. Your rules will be enforced at the expense of your guests and most likely quite a few friendships. If you want an empty ceremony and few people at your reception, then by all means be the dictator you come across as.”


“I think you just won asshole of the month. Oh, and the 1950s called, they want their dress code back.”


“Rule One. Ceremony — reasonable. Dinner/reception — unreasonable and unrealistic. Rule Two. Absolutely 100% unreasonable. Expect a lot of declines over this. I would have zero interest in attending a wedding with this kind of dress code. Rule Three. Not only unreasonable but appalling. You’ve got some fucking nerve trying to police your bridesmaids’ bodies and eating choices. Shame on you. Rule Four. Your MOH is under NO obligation to provide you with a flower girl if your rules around her child’s care are outside of her comfort zone. You are being a huge, asshole-ish bridezilla from hell. Knock it off or you’re going to find yourself with a much smaller circle of friends than you started off with, and a family that’s going to be pissed off at you for a very long time.”


You get the gist — in no way, shape, or form are these rules remotely okay. So, what do you think of wedding rules in general? Do you know anyone who has had ridiculous rules for their wedding day? Share what they were in the comments if so!

Cardi B Explained The “Annoying” Process Of Coming Up With Clean Versions Of Her Explicit Songs



Cardi B On Rapping Clean, Corny Radio Versions Of Her Songs

Cardi B revealed one of the downsides of making songs with raunchy lyrics.

During a recent interview on Hot Ones, Cardi B answered a string of questions while eating hot wings that progressively got hotter.

Cardi was asked how she feels about making radio-friendly versions of her songs, and she didn’t waste any time giving her answer.

“Annoying,” Cardi yelled. “So annoying. I just did it practically two weeks ago. I was so over it.”

She revealed she recorded a clean version of her latest single, “Bongos,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion. And Cardi had to get real creative with the new lyrics, because even the opening line of the song is X-rated.

Atlantic Records

“In [‘Bongos’] I’d be like, ‘N***a, eat this ass like a plum.’ So [when] I’m doing the clean version, I’m like, ‘Baby, eat it up like a plum.'”

But even that slight change didn’t sit well with radio executives. The lyrics were still a little too suggestive for the pop radio charts.

“They’re like, ‘No, you still can’t play that for pop radio.’ Whatever. So I’m like, ‘Baby, eat these peaches and plums.’ That sounds so corny!”

“That sounds like Kidz Bop. But I had no choice. So baby, eat these peaches and plums.”

Cardi and Meg performed the song live for the first time at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. This is their second collaboration together.

While she might not be a fan of the edited version, the song is already doing numbers on the Billboard charts — it climbed into the Top 5 Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs chart during its debut.
