Vivek Oberoi's long journey to true love
Crushes and Heartaches
Vivek Oberoi has been on cloud nine ever since he got engaged to Priyanka Alva, a family friend from Bangalore. Vivek likes to call his match ‘arranged-cum-love-zyaada’ and doesn’t shy in admitting that he fell in love with Priyanka in just 10 minutes of meeting her.
Now that he’s getting married to Priyanka, we hark back at Vivek’s long journey to true love.
We look at his special relationship with Aishwarya Rai, who is now a happily married lady. Before Vivek hooked up with Ash, he had a long and steady relationship with a Punjabi girl named Gurpreet Gill. He even got engaged to her. But the engagement was later broken by him only.
Here’s a rewind into Vivek’s love life. Some of it was for real, some rumoured. Hold your heartbeat and proceed...
If things had turned out differently, Vivek Oberoi might have been a married man and even father of grown up kids by now. Years ago, the actor got engaged to Gurpreet Gill but the betrothal could not culminate into a marriage.
Vivek’s relationship with Ash has been much written about. After she ended a troubled relationship with Salman Khan, Ash found a friend and lover in Vivek Oberoi. The duo also worked together in the movie Kyun Ho Gaya Na. However, the relationship did not last long. It was Ash who pulled the plug.
Jacqueline Fernandez (Rumoured)
For a short while, Vivek was also linked with Miss Sri Lanka Jacqueline Fernandez. He first met her in 2007 but kept in touch throughout the years. Sadly, nothing romantic really fructified between the two. Above, the two are seen sharing a few drinks.
Vidya Balan (Rumoured)
In April last year, rumours appeared that Vivek was seeing actress Vidya Balan. Of course, today we know that nothing romantic happened between the two, but it was claimed back then that the two struck friendship at designer and common friend Sabina Khan’s house.
Priyanka Alva (For Real)
Finally, the man has found the woman he wants to marry. She’s Priyanka Alva, son of a Karnataka politician and a danseuse mother.
Vivek weds Priyanka on October 29 in Bangalore. It's going to be a lavish but private affair, followed by a wedding reception in Mumbai on October 31.
We wish them a happy, love-filled life.
