#6 might make you question your faith in love.




So many of these Bollywood couples give us major #RelationshipGoals but their journey to marriage wasn't as simple. The industry has witnessed a number of cases when a reel-life couple, ended up together in real life as well. Here are some of the famous Bollywood actresses who intentionally or unintentionally, ended up causing a divorce in the process of getting hitched with their partners.

1. Shilpa Shetty

When Shilpa Shetty finally settled down with NRI businessman, Raj Kundra, the country couldn't stop raving about their wedding and its grandeur. They tied the knot on 22nd November '09, and are now proud parents to a son. The couple seem to be blissfully married, even though Raj Kundra's ex-wife openly accused Shilpa to be the reason behind her broken marriage.

2. Hema Malini

With a kick-*ss chemistry on screen, Hema Malini and Dharmendra delivered 28 blockbuster films together, becoming a *dream* couple for their fans. Sparks fired up between the two during the shoot of Sholay. Prakash Kaur, Dharmendra's ex-wife and mother of four, never agreed to divorce him, which led the duo to convert to Islam, and elope.

3. Rani Mukherjee

Being Yash Chopra's most prized actor, Rani Mukherjee ended up working and spending some time with his son, Aditya Chopra as well. They shocked the world with the news of their sudden marriage in 2014, and there are speculations that Rani was the one who came between Aditya Chopra and his ex-wife, Payal's seven year long marriage.

4. Lara Dutta

With a fairytale proposal in the most romantic city in the world aka Paris, Lara Dutta and Mahesh Bhupati's marriage was a much-talked about affair. But Mahesh's former wife, Shvetha Jaishankar claimed openly that Lara was responsible for her separation with her husband. Apparently, the two were seeing each other, while Mahesh was still married.

5. Shabana Azmi

Shabana Azmi became the talk of the town, and not in a very positive way, when she started living with her lover, Javed Akhtar. He happened to be married to Honey Irani, and was a father to two kids, Farhan and Zoya. The famous lyricist, left his wife and kids to stay with Shabana Azmi, and who was the 'other woman' here – is a no-brainer.

6. Sridevi

Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's love story shocked Bollywood, thanks to its twisted conception. Boney Kapoor's ex-wife, Mona went into complete denial when she got to know that Sridevi, who she had generously hosted when she was new to Mumbai, would end up getting cosy with her husband! It is believed she even attempted suicide, and till date, her children Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor, do not maintain ties with their father's second family. Sridevi, was considered the reason for ending a 13 year marriage between Boney Kapoor and Mona Kapoor.

7. Kiran Rao

'The perfectionist' may be extremely skilled and particular when it comes to choosing scripts, but in his love life, he lost his heart not once, but twice. Aamir Khan's first girlfriend, and then neighbour, became his wife when they eloped and got married at the age of 19. On the sets of Ashutosh Gowarikar's Lagaan, Aamir met assistant director Kiran Rao, and after a 'close' friendship, ended up getting married to her, culminating a 15 year long marriage with Reena Dutta.

8. Sarika

Veteran star Kamal Haasan, made headlines over his extra-marital affair with Sarika, while he was still married to Vani Ganapathy. In the year when his wife, Vani went to the US to become a make-up artist to assist her husband better in his movies, Kamal Haasan grew fond of Sarika and started living with her. They have two children, and after 16 years of wedlock, eventually ended up getting divorced, too. Image result for sarika kamal vani
