Falling in love is a beautiful feeling, and what makes it even better is knowing that your partner is the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. There could be nothing better than marriage and sharing a lifetime of love together (and yes, it’s the romantic in us talking), and what makes the feeling of being engaged to someone so special is the time and efforts you spend in proposing to your loved ones.

Over the years, planning the perfect proposal has become a must-take step when asking a partner to marry you. Be it extravagant vacations or a simple ‘let’s get married’ at a bar, proposals often make for the most memorable stories, especially since they mark the beginning of a marriage and spending lives together.

When it comes to romances, Bollywood leaves no stone unturned. The film industry has given us many real and reel love stories to look back at and cherish. From Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan to Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli and Katrina Kaif-Vicky Kaushal, the amount of love we’ve witnessed among celebrities gives one hope of finding the perfect partner. What’s more, some of these Bollywood celebrities have given their partners the most perfect proposal, setting major goals for friends and fans alike.

So, if you are planning to propose to your partner anytime soon, here’s how you can take cues from the stars and make the most of your proposal – be it fancy, or be it simple and sweet!

A post shared by Alia Bhatt 🤍☀️ (@aliaabhatt)

The latest season of Koffee With Karan kickstarted on Disney + Hotstar last week, and gracing the couch on the very first episode were Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. Apart from other things, what caught our attention was Alia talking about how her now-husband Ranbir Kapoor proposed to her at Masai Mara in Kenya. “He (Ranbir) totally blew my mind away because I was not expecting it. We were not even talking about it. We were talking about it for a very long time but then there were so many pandemic delays, that we decided we won’t talk about it (a proposal and marriage). We’ll just go with the feeling. And that’s exactly what he did. He didn’t tell anyone. He just carried the ring and he did it in the most amazing place — Masai Mara,” the actress told host Karan Johar.

Saif Ali Khan – Kareena Kapoor Khan: Paris

Among the Indian celebrity proposals that have our heart is the one by Saif Ali Khan to actor-wife Kareena. The actor first popped the question at a bar in Paris, and later in front of the Notre Dame Church on the same trip. However, it was two days after the proposals that Kareena agreed, and the two then got married in a simple ceremony. Saif chose Paris since that was the destination his father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, proposed to his mother, Sharmila Tagore. However, Saif had already been rejected by Kareena once when proposed to her in Greece, while shooting for the film Tashan!

Abhishek Bachchan – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: New York

In a media interaction, Abhishek Bachchan revealed how he used to think of marrying Aishwarya in the balcony of a hotel in New York, where he was staying while filming for a movie. And sometime later, when the couple was in the city for the premiere of their film Guru, Junior Bachchan popped the question on the very same balcony of the same hotel! Isn’t that romantic?

Shah Rukh Khan – Gauri Khan: Juhu Beach, Mumbai

If you’re not one for grand proposals, Bollywood celebrity King Khan and his ladylove are the perfect couple to inspire you and your love story. The two started to date when they were in college, and once, when she got tired of SRK’s possessiveness, she went to Mumbai, and the actor followed her, searching for her everywhere in the city of dreams. He finally found Gauri at Juhu beach, where he asked her to marry him. It seems like the king of romance is a true romantic in real life, too, and planned the sweetest and the best celebrity proposal for the love of his life!

Priyanka Chopra – Nick Jonas: Greece

Later, he proposed to her while on vacation to Crete in Greece.
