Breaking the Stereotype around Age Gap
Recently most of you must have seen several memes around the two, due to their age gap, Priyanka being 36 and Nick being 25.
But this couple is truly unapologetic in all sense. They have successfully broken the Age Gap Stereotype. However, they aren’t the first celebrity couple to do so!
4 Celebrity Couples Who have Broken the Age Gap Stereotype in the Past
#1. Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput
Very recently in 2015, Shahid and Mira got hitched with their age difference being 14 years with Shahid being 35 and Mira just 21.
#2. Sanjay Dutt and Maanayata
After 2 failed marriages, Sanjay Dutt found his love in Maanayata who was quite younger to him. However, the couple decided to take their relationship to the next level despite having the age gap of 20 years.
#3. Sridevi and Boney Kapoor
The “Hawa Hawai” of Bollywood Sridevi who recently passed away, she was also part of this league. She and Boney Kapoor had an age difference of 8 years.
#4. Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu
Forget about 2018, In 1966, the legendary couple of Bollywood Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu got married. This couple had a whopping age difference of 22 years with Dilip Kumar being 44 and Saira Banu being 22, at the time they got married. The couple recently completed 50 years of their married life.
There are 100s and 1000s of such examples if you look out in the open. But it’s the old and narrow mentality of most people, who believe that having the age gap and getting married is a sin.
But the above mentioned and even several similar couples out there have set an example on how maturity & sense of togetherness overshadows everything.
Above all, as the saying goes - “Love will find a way”.
