Did you think that one marriage in a lifetime was enough of an experience? Well, even two marriages did not suffice for some Bollywood celebrities, who have done it thrice or more. Bollywood, hook-ups, marriage, marriages, scams and divorces are all parallel placed. These celebrities have fallen in love over the years and taken the vow with three and some of them were/are still rumored to be eying others. Celebrity business is an altogether different story – we are mere mortals. Let’s check out some of our thrice married celebrities:
5. Ouch! Kishore Kumar did it More than Three Times
His was a voice which moved a million hearts and still does the same. However, our favorite singing hero had a string of relationships with four marriages in between. Kishore Da (he is often referred to by that suffix) married Ruma Guha Thakurta in the year 1950 from whom he has a son (Amit Kumar).
This marriage lasted for 8 years. After that he started dating the iconic actress Madhubala. They married in the year 1960 and the marriage lasted till the death of Madhubala, nine years later.
Kishore Kumar moved on to marry another actress Yogita Bali.
It lasted for a meager span of only two years after which he fell in love with Leena Chandavarkar, another Bollywood actress. They married and that was the end of it, since their marriage ended with the death of Kishore Kumar.
4. Lucky Ali Got Lucky Thrice
The singer Lucky Ali too got thrice lucky with three back to back marriages. He was even quoted saying that he was not meant for one marriage. Well, you always have your reasons ready for marriage. The singer married a woman from New Zealand named Jane McCleary, who also happened to act in his hit music video ‘O Sanam’. He had two kids from this marriage after which the marriage ended.
He next moved on to marry a woman named Inaya and also had two children with her. This marriage too did not last long.
Lucky Ali again tied the knot, his third, and this time with a British model. They are heard to be going steady and also have a son.
3. Siddharth Roy Kapur is Three Marriages Old
The UTV honcho, Sidhharth Roy Kapur, is now better known as the better half of Bollywood actress Vidya Balan. However, few know that this was his third marriage. He’s as famous as any celebrity in Bollywood, courtesy UTV. Kapur married his childhood friend first, but the marriage did not last very long. He then married a television producer after a briefcourtship. This marriage too did not last and the two separated in the year 2011. It was after this that he started dating Vidya Balan. A Tamilian by birth, Vidya Balan and Kapur married in a Punjabi and Tamilian mixed wedding. The two are going steady. We really want them to.
2. Sanjay Dutt, the Thrice Happy ‘Baba’
Sanjay Dutt is another Bollywood celebrity to have walked down the aisle not once, not twice, but thrice. Sanju baba married Richa Sharma first, but the marriage did not last long, since it saw the demise of Sharma in the year 1996, due to brain tumor.
After two years, in 1998, Dutt got married for the second time. And, this time it was model Rhea Pillai. She was a model, but the marriage did not last long and they divorced in 2005.
Sanjay Dutt stroke a hat trick by marrying his longtime lover Manyata in the year 2008. The couple has twin girls together and are said to be going strong. Fingers crossed.
