There is a famous saying that marriages are made in heaven and we are here just to complete the rituals. But Bollywood is such a place where the marriages of the actors and actresses might have been decided in heaven but their divorces are decided here, on earth only.
There are many examples in Bollywood where actors marry their fellow actors and after a few years gone by, they get divorced as well. Then there are also cases where Bollywood actors have married outside Bollywood and then they took divorce.
In most of these cases, the reason for the divorce remains the same, started liking or loving other fellow actors or actresses. Such cases are now increasing these days, but they have been given a new term and that is “we don’t go well with each other hence we mutually decided to part ways from each other.” This new term sounds sweet but actually, it is used to save the face of that person who has been having affair with someone else and the spouse has to adjust with it.
Three weeks back Aamir Khan declared that he has divorced his second wife Kiran Rao. Social media too took note of this and there was a long discussion about it on various social media platforms as well. For this divorce too Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao have given the same reason as mentioned above that is “we don’t get along these days…etc.”
But what the murmurs are saying about this particular divorce in Bollywood and also in media are totally different than what Kiran and Aamir are claiming. We shouldn’t give much importance to the rumors for sure but the way Aamir and Kiran released a video on social media just a few days after their divorce announcement certainly raises questions and will certainly give the wind to those rumors.
These were the talks about Aamir and Kiran’s divorce and why divorces happen in Bollywood in general. But now let us know and discuss those Top 5 divorces that shook not only the Bollywood but also fans of these couples and became the talk of the town and also talk of the social media for days.
Karisma Kapoor and Sunjoy Kapur
Proud member of Bollywood’s first family the Kapoors and once No.1 actress of the Bollywood Karisma Kapoor tied the knot with a Delhi-based businessman Sunjoy Kapur in 2003. But after 11 years of marriage in 2014, they got divorced. Both sides gave different and contradicting reasons for the failure of this marriage.
Karisma Kapoor’s side claimed that Sunjay Kapur who had an image of Casanova prior to her marriage with him remained even after one decade of their marriage. On the other side, Sunjay Kapoor’s family claimed that Karisma was behaving rudely and insultingly towards them especially towards the ailing father of Sunjay. It has been told that Karisma asked for 7 crores as alimony from Sunjoy Kapoor. Prior to their divorce, these two visited the Mumbai police stations many times.
Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabhani
This divorce story is a typical Bollywood movie story where a man loves a woman when he is struggling to find his stage and then he gets married to that woman, and after the marriage he gets successful and suddenly he starts to dislike this woman who is now his wife and later they get divorced.
Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabhani almost had the same story that is mentioned above. They met in 1999 and fell in love instantly. At that time Adhuna was a hairstylist in Mumbai and Farhan was struggling to become a director in Bollywood. In 2000 these two got married and Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ got a huge success.
After some years Farhan not only become a popular movie director but also become an established actor. Slowly but surely the warmth between Farhan and Adhuna got lesser and lesser and it has been said that Farhan started to like his co-actresses. In the end, it has been told that one of the famous IPL anchors of the past became the reason for the divorce between Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabhani that happened in 2016.
Himmesh Reshammiya and Komal
If Farhan and Adhuna got separated after 16 long years of their marriages then let us take the case of Himmesh Reshammiya, the known Bollywood music director and singer, and his first wife Komal. Himmesh and Komal were married for not less than 22 years and yet they got divorced in 2017. These two got a divorce from Mumbai High Court.
If a marriage has lasted for more than two decades then isn’t it obvious that the said couple got to have a child? Himmesh and Komal have a son named Swayam. After one year of the divorce, Himmesh got married to known TV actress Soniya Kapoor but there has been no information regarding Komal, whether she has got married or not.
Last year Himmesh Reshammiya introduced his wife Sonia Kapoor in the reality show Indian Idol that he co-judges and said that whatever change in his overall behavior is because of Soniya only, who is his wife for the last two or three years only.
Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan
Hrithik Roshan, a successful son of a successful director Rakesh Roshan, and Sussanne Khan a daughter of a known Bollywood actor-director Sanjay Khan got married in 2000. At that time Hritik was already a superstar and girls were crazy about him. But by marrying Sussanne Hrithik broke the hearts of millions of girls in India.
For many years the Indian gossip media called this couple ‘made for each other or even ‘mad for each other’ as well. For a long time of period, this claim looked true the way this couple used to present themselves in public. Hrithik and Sussanne have two sons Hrihan and Hridan too. But suddenly after 14 years of marriage, in 2015 news started to appear about their divorce and that shook the fans across India.
To date, there is no real reason known behind this sensational divorce but yes, there have always been rumors that these two will soon be seen together again. In between, there was also an episode about Hritik’s so-called affair with Kangana Ranaut that surfaced a few years back. Was this the reason behind this divorce? Well, we know about that as much as you do.
Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan
It won’t be untrue if we say that despite being the brother of Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan was less successful than his wife Malaika Arora. Even in non-celebrity couples, sometimes when a wife gets more success or praise the husband’s ego gets hurt badly and thus their married life gets into trouble. Malaika Arora was a successful model and actress but Arbaaz Khan despite being an actor, producer and director failed to make any mark on Bollywood.
When both got divorced from the Bandra court the official reason given was that they are getting separated with mutual consent. But what looked like the real reasons were Arbaaz Khan’s poor career and financial conditions and Malaika’s affair with Arjun Kapoor.
So, these were the TOP 5 cases of Bollywood divorce that shook not only the Hindi movie industry but also the fans of Bollywood. Do let us know whether you liked our feature or not in the comments section given below. We are waiting for your valued feedback.
