#3. Ekta Kapoor for Neelam and Samir Soni

TV Czarina Ekta Kapoor has played cupid for many of her on-screen couples, but there is one couple whom she united in real life. Neelam once went to watch a play in which Samir was acting. She found him cute and told the same to Ekta, who was their common friend. Ekta passed this on to Samir.

Then one day, Samir saw Neelam at Ekta’s party. He also found her adorable and told Ekta this. Ekta, being the great friend that she is, passed this information on to Neelam. And so, after many chance meetings, delayed phone calls and a lot of other interesting things, Neelam and Samir finally started dating. Today, they are happy in their conjugal bond.

#4. Akshay Kumar for Asin and Rahul Sharma

Akshay had the biggest role to play in fixing up Asin and Micromax CEO Rahul Sharma. Akshay is best friends with Rahul and has worked with Asin in a lot of movies. He confesses that he set them up very slyly, and nobody got to know about it for a very long time. During an interview with a leading daily, Akshay explained how he went about the whole set-up. This is what he said:

“It was during Housefull 2 and we were in Delhi. Don’t laugh, but we were playing hide and seek, and I made the two of them hide together in one cupboard. That is how it started and it is so nice that they are getting married now.”

We must agree that this was a very smart move on the part of the khiladi. But we are glad that this resulted in Asin and Rahul getting hitched and living happily ever after.

#5. Aly Goni for Ankita and Karan Patel

Not many know how Karan Patel reel-life father-in-law from Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Abhay Bhargava, turned into his real-life sasur ji. Interestingly, whereas many people thought that it was Abhay who must have introduced his daughter Ankita and Karan, this is not the truth. It was Karan’s on-screen younger brother and great friend Aly Goni who played cupid for these two.

Karan and Ankita met and hit it off pretty well. And, as we all know, they are now one of the cutest married couples in the TV world, all thanks to Aly and his cupid skills.
