Discussion Post: Who Do You Have a Couple Crush On?

Follow up to the “girl crush” post! By the way, these posts are getting more traffic than anything else I am putting up (why does no one want to play Antakshari???) so if you have more general ideas for questions, lay them on me!

I’ll start!

Rima Kallingal and Aashiq Abu: She’s an outspoken feminist actress, he’s a director who makes primarily female oriented films, they are both super talented, I want them to pick me up at the airport and drive me home talking about their new projects, and also lightly bickering about the best way to go to avoid traffic!

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli: She’s a popular actress who is secretly a very savvy producer, and radical feminist. He’s an ex-sports hero who is secretly a very smart businessman, and supportive feminist ally to his wife. I want to have Sunday brunch with them and tease Virat about his hair and help Anushka pick out her dress for her next awards show.

Naseeruddin Shah and Ratna Pathak: I want them to adopt me and be my new funny parental type friends who nag me to eat better, and also give me clothes that they picked up on sale and think I might look good in.

Okay, who are your couple fantasies? Be as specific as you like!

  1. Ok, I have like whole families I’d like to be adopted into, mostly because they seem genuinely warm and mutually supportive as well as smart and successful. I’d be so pleased just to spend time around them, or at least my fantasy of them. They are:

    Gauri Khan’s family, including filmi family–Shah Rukh at one remove, traveling, talking, board gaming, talking about kids, talking about business, talking about art. I’d just have to avoid the shopping–I could stay home and read instead. Juhi Chawla’s family–I could learn organic farming from them and maybe they’d inspire me to get serious about yoga. Mallika Sukumaran’s family–I mean, both of her sons, her daughters-in-law, and all her grandkids are beautiful, smart, grounded people who also seem to really like each other. I follow her on Facebook and she is so sweet! And Vijay Sethupathi’s family–mom, two brothers (I think?) and a sister, who is also a keen business woman with a high end silk shop, Iraivi, in Chennai. Vijay has said his wife Jessy saved his life, and she looks smart, charming, and nice in photos, and both of their kids are cute as heck with big personalities. For all these families I’d also love the connections and experiences my daughter could have around them. It’s a tough world, and it’s not what you know, but who.

    As we said in the other thread, I would, of course, be crushing hard on all the actors in these families, but I’d be cool about it. And now you know how odd my daydreams are.

    Ok, for couples, as others have said, Anushka and Virat, Madhuri and Dr. Nene, Preity and Mr. G, Shah Rukh and Gauri, Irrfan and Sutapa, Neetu and Rishi, Yashji and Pam Aunty. Can I count Karan and his mom? I don’t necessarily want to spend time with these folks, but I think they are, from the outside, couple goals and I’m happy when I read good news about them.


  2. Anil Kapoor and Sunita – Good parents with good values and a lot of love, happy to have their children do whatever they are passionate about and support them all the way. Also, if Harsh doesn’t end up marrying me then I would be glad to be adopted by them as a second option. Either way works. I don’t have any other family fantasies, but this one is pretty much an ideal for me.

    • Yes! Marry Harsh! He is so dumb and pretty, but you can talk to Rhea and Sonam for intellectual stimulation, and have Anil for emotional support, and Harsh can just be to look at.

      • He does have an interest in movies, so there’s a lot do debate over or exchange movies recommendations with him as well as all the staring at the prettiness of him. Other than that, yea exactly what you said. And maybe talk movie costumes with Sunita as well occasionally get some life advice from her.


  3. I like Surya and Jyothika as a couple. I don’t know much about their personal life but they are close friends with Maddy and his wife and for me this is enough.


    • So, this is a quad crush? Suriya, and Jyothika, and Maddy, and his wife, as a couple of couples? I am tempted to put up another post asking for those, but I don’t know how many of them there are.
