Say what you will, but bad boys do have a charm of their own. Stormy, dark, disturbing they seem to be the definition of bad ideas. But much like our heroines we also could not resist the charms of these characters and ended up falling in love with them somehow. Call it the attraction towards the forbidden fruit, but these deeply flawed characters are also some of TV's most popular and loved characters. Here are 12 bad boys of TV who made us fall for them.12 PhotosGallery- 12 Bad Boys Of TV We Came To Love HelplesslyAdvertisements<div class="rev-container" id="rev-gallery-17135"></div>Shivaay OberoiUploaded by Avipsha Sengupta on 25 Feb, 2018This character probably would not have been half as interesting if he wasn't this dark.1/12Arjun Punj (Kitni Mohabbat Hai)Uploaded by Avipsha Sengupta on 25 Feb, 2018Arrogant, egoistic but there was something so sexy about his crushing intensity2/12Rudra (Rangrasiya)Uploaded by Avipsha Sengupta on 25 Feb, 2018He was a dutiful army officer, yes, but his initial treatment towards Paro was shocking.

Bollywood is a strange world and that is not exactly news. Everyone knows that anything and everything can happen in the land of Bollywood. However, sometimes real life occurrences in Bollywood give its creative writers either an idea or a run for their money. If you thought only Bollywood films are about mind-blowing co-incidences, these stories will surely prove you wrong. Here are 5 instances when weird co-incidences in Bollywood in matters of death have left us speechlessSridevi and Mona KapoorIn their lives, they were connected because they married the same man, film producer Boney Kapoor but even in their death they shared a connection. Mona Kapoor, who is the first wife of Boney Kapoor and mother of actor Arjun Kapoor died months before Arjun debuted in Bollywood with his film ‘Ishaqzaade’. Sridevi, who had two daughters with Boney Kapoor died months before her elder daugher Jahnvi Kapoor is all set to make her big Bollywood debut with ‘Dhadak’Sridevi and Divya BharathiWhen Divya Bharati entered Bollywood, apart from her stellar performances she was also noticed for having a lot of similarities in terms of looks with Sridevi. So much so, that Divya Bharati was called her lookalike.However, the weirdest connection that the two seem to share is the fact that 25thFebruary is not only the date when Sridevi left us, but the date also happens to be Divya Bharati’s birthday.Amitabh Bachchan's TweetMost people woke up to the unfortunate news of Sridevi’s demise this morning as the incident occurred late last night. Many tweets of her colleagues, friends, fans, and admirers have poured in since then, but minutes before the news of her death was broken, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted about feeling restless. Strong intuition or just coincidence, whatever you call it, it is surely a little weird.Anurag Basu’s Father’s DeathWhile conceptualizing a death scene in a film director Anurag Basu was facing some difficulties. To really get into the zone, he tried imagining the death of his own father in order to perhaps evoke real emotions. The very next morning the director was informed about the demise of his father.Feroz Khan and Vinod KhannaThe super hit pair that gave a cult hit like Qurbaani, were really thick friends in real life. Throughout their lives and career they have been each other’s companion and even in their death, they left a seal of their friendship. The death anniversary of both the veteran actors falls on the same day, which is 27thApril.

Amitabh Bachchan’s last tweet is unfathomable and spine chilling at the same time. At 1:15 am on February 25, 2018, Mr Bachchan tweeted : “न जाने क्यूँ , एक अजीब सी घबराहट हो रही है!!” May be it was his intuition or he was one of the first few people to be notified about Sridevi’s demise.By 2:30 am phones started ringing, messages started pouring in and social media went into a shock, praying that the news of passing away of India’s first female Superstar - Sridevi Boney Kapoor was untrue.300 films 50 years of professional careerMillennials who've only witnessed Sridevi’s charm in English Vinglish and Mom might not know that Sridevi began her acting career at the age of 4. She’s one of the only actresses to have had a stupendously legendary filmy career of 300 films and 50 years in the Indian film industry. For those who’re still unaware of her aura must watch this clip from Mr. India where she nails in beautifully orchestrated chaotic scene embodying Charlie Chaplin, showing her stellar acting abilities to the world.Sridevi didn’t know or speak a word of Hindi when she made her Bollywood debut. She’s perhaps the only actress who worked with superstars like Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra and the Khans. She saw unprecedented success, fame and respect in all languages she worked in.The Shy SrideviQuite unlike her contemporaries and other Bollywood celebs, Sridevi was known to be an extremely shy and reserved person. She avoided interviews on purpose, even though she went on to do stunning photoshoots for international magazines like Vogue. According to film critic Bhawana Somaya’s byte to a TV news channel, when asked about the kind of man she wanted to marry, Sridevi told her that she wanted to marry a man who was taller than her. Bhawana also spoke about how Sridevi had this dramatic quality of transforming into a completely bubbly and extrovert person on celluloid while she was stark opposite to most of her characters.Sridevi once said, “Some people think that I am very arrogant, but I am genuinely a very private and shy person. I open up to people who are close to me, and with them, I am a different person.”Her director Ram Gopal Varma wrote a post on social media post her demise titled: I HATE GOD FOR KILLING SRIDEVI AND I HATE SRIDEVI FOR DYING. He also wrote about Sridevi’s shy persona, “She had an invisible wall around her and she does not let anyone cross that. Behind that wall she maintains her dignity and her self-respect and she never lets anyone inside.” He ended his note with a painful obit: I so hope I am still having a bad dream,but I know I am not. I hate Sridevi. I hate her for making me realise that she too is finally only just a human being. I hate that her heart too has to beat to live. I hate that,she too has a heart which can just stop like anybody else’s. I hate that I lived to see the messages informing me of her death. I hate God for killing her . And I hate Sridevi for dying. I love you Sri wherever you are… and I will always love you.”The doting mother“When we named our daughter Jahnavi .. I had called up Sriji to say ,my baby had the same name as her daughter ..!!☺️💕😣...... how time... and life .. fly .” Juhi Chawla tweeted.Sridevi’s daughter Jahnvi is about to make her Bollywood debut in July 2018 with Karan Johar’s Dhadak opposite Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khattar. It’s unfortunate that she has passed away before she could see her daughter’s professional debut. Quite eerily, this is exactly what happened to Arjun Kapoor when his mother passed away before the release of his debut movie Ishaqzaade.In an interview to The Scroll, Sridevi spoke about her daughters: “Both my daughters have been brought up with certain ethics and values and know where to draw a line. I am a cool mom, but, there is always a but. Yes, there are more professional managers and crew and filmmakers, but there is absolutely no substitute for hard work. It is not something Jhanvi can take for granted. And also luck. And my daughters know where I came from and they know where to draw a line.”Shy but extremely secureIn an interview around the release of English Vinglish, she confessed: “I don’t go to the kitchen; I cannot cook, forget making laddoos.” One of her famous quotes on the internet is, “Believe it or not, I don't have an ego. That is one of the first lessons I learnt when I entered this line.”Little do people know that Sridevi was the reason why actresses like Vidya Balan, Karisma and Kareena Kapoor joined films in the first place. Their inspiration is no more, the brightest and first female superstar of Indian cinema is no more. Pinching yet quite rightly true, actor Ronit Roy voiced our emotions in one line: “Since sunrise this song keeps playing in my head “ik din bik jayegaa mati ke mol…….”In one of her own dialogues, Sridevi said, “Pyaar Hawa Ka Ek Jhonka Hai Jo Sab Kuch Uda Le Jata Hai”Gone too soon, Bollywood’s Chandni now joins the galaxy of stars in heaven.

Boney Kapoor’s son from his first wife, Arjun Kapoor made his Bollywood debut in 2012 with Ishqzaade. The actor had lost his mother only months before his debut happened and he remained depressed coping with the loss of his mother when his first Bollywood film hit the theaters. It has always been a deep regret with him that his mother couldn’t see his debut happen or to see the actor that he became.As mysterious as fate is the history has shockingly repeated itself in the Kapoor family itself, where Jhanvi Kapoor was all geared up for her big Bollywood debut in July with Dhadak opposite Ishaan Khattar, and her mother Sridevi passed away just a few months away from her debut.In fact, Jhanvi in preparations for her film wasn’t even able to attend cousin Mohit Marwah’s wedding with her family soon after which her mom passed way in Dubai. Sridevi was 54 and died of a cardiac arrest.Arjun Kapoor and his step-sisters Jhanvi and Khushi Kapoor have never been on good terms. Now call it a shocking coincidence or a twist of fate, either way, Sridevi’s absence cannot be compensated for.The veteran actress’s death has engulfed the industry in a shock. She was last seen in the film Mom in 2017. Bollywood would truly miss her presence.

Ah, the Friendzone! It is probably one of the most dangerous places to be in and there are more chances of coming out alright of Bermuda Triangle or the Amazon Rainforest rather than the friend zone. Even the border between 2 rival nations is a safer place to be in rather than languishing in the deserted land of friend zone where the mirage of a romantic relationship makes people go crazy. It seems within your reach but the moment you make a move, poof! It's not there but you see it's within your reach.Numerous films, sitcoms, and web-series and shorts have explored this topic hilariously and this zone is going to last till humanity exists, which means, there are going to be more films and sitcoms on this topic. Every one of us has found ourselves at least once in our lives, inside the friend zone bubble. A few people have succeeded (hats-off to them) while others are still battling and marching on. If you think Bollywood celebs have it easy you couldn't be more wrong. Here are 6 Bollywood celebs who friend-zoned their better halves before finally marrying them:Rishi Kapoor:The actor was in love with someone else but was also good friends with Neetu Singh, with whom he had appeared in a couple of films. Once his girlfriend moved away, Neetu helped him write letters to his girlfriend when Rishi eventually realized that he loved Neetu all along.Kajol:The actress was in a relationship with someone else and even sought romantic advice from Ajay Devgn numerous times who was a close friend of hers. She later on dated and married Ajay.Hazel Keech:The actress knew Yuvraj Singh as an acquaintance and it was only after Yuvraj asked her out after Bodyguard, a romantic relationship developed between them after a few weeks.Twinkle Khanna:Akshay had proposed to her numerous times and wanted to get married but Twinkle kept postponing. She, later on, said that if her film Mela flops, she would get married to him. Mela flopped and we know what happened next.Sridevi:The actress was once married to Mithun Chakraborty and often worked in films which were produced by Boney Kapoor whom she considered as her elder brother/friend/confidante. She even tied rakhi to Boney in presence of Mithun but later on married Boney Kapoor.Jackie Shroff:He was in love with a girl who had moved to the US and he was also good friends with Ayesha, who had romantic feelings for him. But Jackie didn't initiate anything as he was already in a relationship so Ayesha wrote to that girl asking her that they both should get married to Jackie.
