Mukesh and Nita Ambani top the list with a score of 94%. At second place are Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh followed by 2019's top 'Power Couple', Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma.
The survey covered a sample size of 1,362 respondents  in the age group 25-40 years.
Sandeep Goyal, chief mentor, IIHB, said, “The last time around we did not include any corporates or business couples in our list. But the research team at IIHB felt that the rankings should include Power Couples from all walks of life; hence business couples were added this time around to the list, and they seem to have done very well in the rankings."

  • Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone (86%)
