10 Perfect Bollywood Movie Characters Who Are Ideal Husbands For Every Girl

By  | 

Admit it, for at least once, the leading characters of Bollywood movies inspired us enough to look for the qualities they possessed, in our future better half. Be it the ever so lovable Raj from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge or the sincere and devoted Vanraj from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, these characters touched the hearts  of so many women and moved their souls.

So, what are the true qualities of a quintessential ‘hero’? Sit back and read on as we uncover some of the almost perfect characters from Bollywood movies.

1. Siddhart Malhotra (Guru) in Ek Villain

Guru, a loveless orphan grown into a gun-toting goon, turns his life over for the girl he loves. He fulfills all her wishes and his character makes us believe that softness exists in everyone and that love can do real wonders.

2. R. Madhavan (Manu) in Tanu Weds Manu and Tanu Weds Manu Returns

Manu ji is the agyakari beta. He is all that a girl and her parents look for in a groom. But what makes us love his character is the fact that he loves his girl with all his heart despite her flaws. He stands by her even when she likes someone else. Now, if he isn’t the perfect husband material, who is?

3. Shah Rukh Khan (Raj) in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

What strikes us most about Raj is his depth of character. He had the opportunity to elope with the girl he truly loved when she was about to get married to someone her father (Amrish Puri) picked for her. But Raj chose the harder path. He worked his way to win everyone’s heart, including that of Simran’s (Kajol) father. Raj fully understood family values and upheld traditions. He gave equal respect to the girl he loved and her parents. AWW!

4. Ajay Devgn (Vanraj) in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Vanraj, a doting husband, was jilted by his wife, Nandini (Aishwarya Rai). Realizing that Nandini is in love with another man, he decides to unite the two lovers by going to Italy in search of Sameer (Salman Khan). On finally meeting Sameer after a very trying time, Nandini realizes that Vanraj is her true soulmate. She reflects on the unwavering love and devotion that Vanraj showered upon her throughout their relationship. Vanraj let his love go because her happiness was all that mattered to him. He fought with his parents who initially rejected his idea of trying to unite his wife with her former lover. We are only glad that Nandini returned to him because Vanraj, without a doubt is a keeper.

5. Chandrachur Singh (Ajay) in Kya Kehna!

Ostracized by her family and society for pre-marital pregnancy, a devastated Priya’s (Preity Zinta) only solace was Ajay. He stood by her side like a true friend. Priya finally chose Ajay over Rahul (Saif Ali Khan), because he stuck around her when the world turned their backs on her. Every girl needs a man who stands beside her through rain and shine.

6. Akshay Kumar (Arjun Singh) in Namaste London

Akshay’s character Arjun is a perfect husband and son-in-law in the film and is enough to sweep any girl off her feet! He moves all the way to London from his Pind in Punjab to woo his wife who has set her heart on another man. In the end, he wins her over by his true love and commitment. Arjun shows that true love is not about acquiring the other person, but about dedication, respect and faith towards your beloved.

7. Shah Rukh Khan (Surinder Sahni) in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

A mild-mannered office worker Surinder Sahni, transforms himself into the loud and fun-loving “Raj” to win the love of his beautiful and vivacious wife, Taani (Anushka Sharma). Taani eventually falls for Raj and decides to elope with him. A disappointed Surinder decides to live the rest of his life as Raj, for her true happiness. But soon after, Taani realizes the strength and integrity of Surinder’s character, something which she can grow to love. Surinder goes out of his way for Taani, which only tells about the depth of his love for her.

8. Shahid Kapoor (Prem) in Vivah

Vivah, as the name suggests, was entirely about celebrating arranged marriages. Prem is the epitome of a perfect husband. He stands by his would-be-wife when she goes through a terrible accident. He does not walkaway, leaving her in misery. He waits for her to recover because in heart, he made the ultimate decision of spending the rest of his days with her. This sort of sensibility and supportive nature are the best Bollywood-inspired qualities that one looks for in a groom.

9. Sunny Deol (Tara Singh) in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha

During the communal riots of 1947, Tara Singh saves Sakina (Amisha Patel) from being killed by a delirious mob and later marries her. Tara Singh looks beyond the religious barrier that divides people and accepts Sakina as his own. He loves her unconditionally. Tara Singh never lets go of his family and patriotism when his love is tested by his narrow-minded and conservative father in law (Amrish Puri). Tara Singh is a man of virtue and deep character who defends and protects his family and his country’s honour from harm’s way.

10. Salman Khan (Prem Choudhary) in Maine Pyar Kiya

A woman of virtue and nobility wants a self made man, who depends on no one and this is why Prem impresses us. He gives up all his wealth and luxury to prove his capability to his woman’s father. He proves his passion and his commitment and emerges victorious in the end. Which girl would not want a man like Prem in her life?!
