I believed Shah Rukh and Kajol were a real life couple after I watched DDLJ while I was a school girl. It was difficult to make myself think otherwise. Generally, the on-screen chemistry of the co-actors is brewed so well that they end up finding the “love of their lives” on the sets of the films they do together.

Interestingly, there are some celebrities who experienced the fluttering of butterflies in their stomach for either their “old school sweetheart” or after tying knots in an arranged-marriage setting.
