Suniel Dutt and Nargis

In the day and age when inter-faith marriages were rare and arranged marriage was the conventional way, actor Suniel Dutt and actress Nargis challenged the societal norms. On the set of Mother India Nargis got stuck in a ring of fire and Suniel Dutt without caring for his life went in to save her. This started the beautiful romance, but they got married in a secret ceremony in 1958 as the society would not receive their relation well. In 1959 the couple made their union known to the public and since then they were a strong example of true love.
