We absolutely admire Raj-Nargis’ love story but we love Sunil-Nargis more. For their love tale had depth, drama and passion which had faded with time when it comes to Raj and Nargis. Although even today the umbrella that made the on-screen Jodi immortal, still hangs like an idol in  even till date in Raj Kapoor’s adytum yet the story of Nargis falling for Sunil Dutt has a repeat value, we feel. As an ode to the love birds, Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om reiterated the same scene ditto. On sets of Mother India when fire broke out and Nargis was trapped in midst of the flames, Sunil jumped in the fire without giving a second thought and saved Nargis.

Trivia: Sunil Dutt who used to be an RJ with Radio Ceylon wanted to interview his favourite starlet Nargis but he was so nervous that he couldn’t ask a single question owing to which the interview was cancelled.

And the love birds married got married in a day. Jaya Bachchan first met Big B in Pune’s FTII and she says that it was love at first sight for her.

Dilip Kumar’s love for Madhubala might have been soured by circumstances but his love for Saira Banu has stood the test of time. Saira fell for Dilip saab at the age of 12. She was his fan and was not simply smitten by him. “I was not just another girl smitten by Dilip Kumar. For me, it was no castle in the air because I had given my dream the strong foundation of faith-faith in myself and faith in God,” she says. Later when the young Saira became a B-Town starlet it was her mother’s intervention that saved her from one too many link-ups and gossips. In fact it was her mother who played cupid for her and Dilip saab. She brought the two close and when Dilip saab proposed to Saira she couldn’t say no for it was her dream come true. Talking about her first encounter with her favourite star, Saira says, “When he smiled at me and remarked that I was a pretty girl, I could feel my whole being taking wing and flying rapturously. I knew somewhere deep within me that I was going to be his wife.”
