Six Degrees of Bollywood

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Facebook has made all of us aware of the six degrees of seperation that exists. That awkward moment when you add someone and realize there is a common friend between you. yeah, THAT! There is even a parlor game called Six degrees of Kevin Bacon. You are supposed to connect any individual in Hollywood to Kevin Bacon within six steps. Closer home, in Bollywood, that would be equivalent to Six Degrees of Amitabh Bachchan maybe?

I decided to put my Bollywood skills to test and connect two people based on relationships. 

I was watching Chameli ki Shaadi the other day - and realized watching it in 2014- how Pankaj Kapoor's and Amrita Singh's lives would be connected and how they had no clue about it while they were shooting the movie. 

Amrita Singh and Pankaj Kapoor

1.Amrita Singh was married to Saif Ali Khan and they got divorced and Saif married Kareena Kapoor who was dating Shahid Kapoor at one point of time, who is Pankaj Kapoor's son. Boom!

 Kareena Kapoor and Naseeruddin Shah

Kareena Kapoor dated Shahid Kapoor who is the stepson of Supriya Pathak, who is the sister of Ratna Pathak, who is married to Naseeruddin Shah. Voila! 

These are the perks of watching a lot of movies! I am sure there are plenty more in Bollywood. Can you think of any other interesting six degrees of bollywood? Please leave it on the comments section!
