Bollywood recently celebrated the marriage of long-time couple Farhan Akhtar-Shibani Dandekar. After four years of dating and fans rooting for the two, they got hitched on February 19 in Khandala. This wasn't the only big Bollywood wedding fans have witnessed in the last few months, and as COVID-19 restrictions ease there could be more coming our way soon.
In December last year, actor Katrina Kaif tied the knot with Vicky Kaushal at a lavish ceremony in Rajasthan. While the couple had never made their relationship official, photos from pew-wedding rituals began doing rounds on the Internet early in December. Eventually, the couple announced that nuptials with coordinated posts on social media, on December 9.
This year, fans are looking at several other Bollywood couples such as Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani and wondering who will tie the knot and when. While many of these couples have confirmed their relationship, some have kept it tightly under wraps.
Here's a list of popular Bollywood couples dating currently and we might hear wedding bells for them soon:

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have been dating each other for some time now and are regularly spotted together both at events and on each other's social media. In an interview, Kapoor had said that the pandemic had spoiled the couple's wedding plans. "It (the wedding) would have already been sealed if the pandemic hadn’t hit our lives," he said. While promoting her film Gangubai Kathiawadi, Bhatt reacted to Kapoor's statement and said, "I feel like the timing of even when we get married, it’s all going to work out in all the right and beautiful way."
