Most recently, top actress of Bollywood in the mid-2000s Rani Mukherji married film director Aditya Chopra of DDLJ fame and the marriage was kept a secret. Aditya is a divorced man and his affair with Rani was always kept as a secret. Indian girls without film or modelling background normally prefer unmarried grooms. Then why it happens so in Bollywood? Bollywood divas have millions of fans across the world. Then why do they prefer to live with already married or divorced men? Is it became the field in which they work bring them closer and give them better opportunities to know one another? Or is it true love is blind and nothing matters if love is in the air?


When Kareena Kapoor dated Saif Ali Khan, she was the top heroine of Bollywood with handsome hits like 3 Idiots and Golmaal. Saif Ali Khan was already divorced and had an unsuccessful affair with a model. Despite having kids from first marriage and they had an age gap of 10 years, nothing stopped Kareena from marrying Saif and today they form one of the happiest couples of the industry. Vidya Balan – female Khan of Bollywood also married in 2013 to film producer Sidharth Roy Kapur who has already divorced twice.  


Affair of top heroines with married directors or actors is not a practice that started most recently. Raj Kumar-Nargis affair is the best instance. Next instance is Dharmendra-Hema malini.

Vaijayanthimala patiently waited for the divorce of Dr. Chamanlal Bali before they got married. Sarita came close to Kamal Hassan when he was already married to noted classical dance Vani Ganapati. His marriage with Sarita also ended and now he is in a committed relationship to actress Gauthami, a divorcee.


Shilpa Shetty – the Bollywood diva is believed to be family breaker of Raj Kundra, though she has told media that she met him after his divorce. Now she is happily married and owner of an IPL team. Aamir Khan-Kiran Rao affair ended the 16 year long marriage relationship of Aamir. Though Aamir remained the top chocolate hero of 1990s, he kept his marriage vows intact and has never fallen into any affair. However his closeness with Kiran Rao in the film sets of Dil chahta hai ended everything!
