They say “Love is blind” and it is the same with Bollywood, Hollywood or common man. Love can hit you anytime, anywhere and will make you fall in love with anybody. Here I will mention about the extra-marital affairs in bollywood (my favourite). From Raj Kapoor and Nargis to Priyanka and SRK, many of your favourite film stars have dared to fallen in love even when they were married.
Nargis and Raj Kapoor:
“Pyar hua iqraar hua hai, pyar se phir kyu darta hai dil, Kehta hai dil rasta mushkil…Maaloom nahin hai kahan manzil” yesteryears popular song featuring Nargis and Raj Kapoor from the film ‘Shri 420’. The lyrics of the song, itself narrates their love story. Nargis found her love in Raj Kapoor, who already had a wife. There love was the talk of the B-town. They worked in 16 films together and gave popular known hits like: ‘Awara’, ‘Shree 420’ and ‘Barsaat’. But unluckily there love couldn’t last for long, Raj Kapoor turn down the idea of marriage with Nargis. Accepting her fate, she preferred to move on in life. During the shoot of ‘Do Bigha Zameen’, she met Sunil Dutt. And while shooting for ‘Mother India’ they fell in love and very soon after the film, they got married.
Sridevi and Mithun Chakravarty, Boney Kapoor and Sridevi:
Sridevi and Mithun’s affair started on the sets of ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’. Mithun was married to Yogita Bali at that time. Yogita heard rumours that Sri and Mithun are secretly married. Bali tried committing suicide which ended the flame between Sridevi and Mithun.
Mona Kapoor was Boney Kapoor’s wife, and she wanted to help out Sridevi in her crisis. She wasn’t aware about the affair between Boney and Sridevi. When Sridevi became pregnant only then Mona came to know about their hidden relationship. Boney and Mona decided to take divorce and Boney and Sridevi got married.
Dharmendra and Hema Malini:
Dharmendra fell for Hema during the shoot of ‘Tum Haseen Main Jawan’. He was already married and couldn’t marry Hema because Prakash Kaur (his wife) wasn’t ready to give divorce to him.
