Everything is fair in love and war and many star couples have proven that time and again. Whether it is marrying someone from across the globe or someone younger/older, nothing is ‘taboo’ when you are in love. Some of our all-time favourite couples have defied the notion of being romantically involved with a man older than their female counterpart: Colombian singer, Shakira (41) and Spanish footballer, Gerard Pique (31) have been in a relationship since 2011. Hollywood actor, Hugh Jackman (50) and Austrailian actress, Deborra-Lee Furness (62) tied the knot in 1996 and have adopted two children together.
There are many couples from the past who were together for years but eventually, for reasons best known to them, broke up. However, we have compiled a list of celebrity couples with older female celebrities who give us major inspiration.
Yasra Rizvi and Abdul Hadi
Actress, Yasra Rizvi (36) and Abdul Hadi (26) got married in 2016. When news broke that the acclaimed poetess/actress had tied the knot with a man younger than her, the social media brigade did not miss out any chance to criticize her. All of this led her to post a video message on Facebook to express her bewilderment towards the attitude of the naysayers.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
Acclaimed Bollywood and Hollywood star, Priyanka Chopra (36) met her beau, Nick Jonas (26) at The Met Gala in 2017. The two started dating in early 2018 and are reportedly tying the knot by the end of this year.
Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor
It has been long speculated that actor-TV presenter, Malaika Arora (45) has been dating Namaste England actor, Arjun Kapoor (33). However, if public appearances are to reveal something, the duo has been spotted together on multiple occasions recently. There has been conjecture that the two are likely to tie the knot in April 2019.
Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi
Bollywood actress and RJ, Neha Dhupia (38) and Angad Bedi (35) got hitched earlier this year. Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s nuptials coincided with Neha’s private wedding affair. The couple is pregnant and expecting a baby real soon.
Faysal Qureshi and Savera Nadeem
While not a real-life couple, actors, Faysal Qureshi and Savera Nadeem are certainly our favourite on-screen couple with an age difference. Their on-screen chemistry in plays namely; Qaid-e-Tanhai, Mera Saieen and Baba Jani has garnered them positive feedback from the audience time and again.
