Relationships and marriages in Bollywood occur as fast as they get over. Some last for a lifetime, and some, last for just about a couple of years. In a situation like this, you can always expect a bit of spice in the marriage conditions of our favorite celebrities. They marry, have children, get divorced and marry again. Is life really that simple? Well, we can only sit back and watch them. Here is a list of some of the famous second marriages that happened in Bollywood, and the list grows bigger with each passing year:
8. Dharmendra and Hema Malini
Dharmendra fell so passionately in love with dream-girl Hema Malini that he even converted to Islam as his first wife Prakash did not want to divorce him. His sons Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol are from her. His second marriage was one of the biggest in their times, yet, it was heartbreak and sadness for some. The relationship between the two families still isn’t very smooth. Things really happen on a grand scale in Bollywood – be it on screen or of it.
7. Boney Kapoor and Sridevi
Another very talked about second marriage in Bollywood was that of Boney Kapoor and Sridevi. Boney Kapoor was previously married to Mona. They had two children – Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor. He divorced his wife Mona to get married to the gorgeous Sridevi. They have two daughters Jhanvi and Khusi. Can anyone really miss the charm of Sridevi? Boney Kapoor was, well, no exception. He took the bigger step.
6. Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao
Everyone was taken by surprise when Aamir Khan divorced his first wife Reena Dutta with whom he was married for a good 15 years. It was something nobody had expected. They also had children from that marriage. Kiran Rao was an assistant director when the couple met. They dated for sometime and eventually got married. The match might be a second one for Aamir, yet, looks perfect (as of now).
5. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor
Saif was married to Amrita Singh for quite some time. They have two daughters together. After their divorce Saif had dated a couple of women, while nothing concrete happened on the marriage front. It was later that he met Kareena Kapoor and they fell in love. They dated for a brief span of time before tying the knot. It had been quite a grand wedding and the Nawab looks perfectly happy with his second Begum.
4. Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar
Javed Akhtar is one of the most loved lyricists in Bollywood. He was previously married to Honey Irani. They had two children – Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar. Both are celebrities in their own right now. He divorced Honey Irani to get married to Shabana Azmi, with whom he looks to be going steady. The couple shares a great chemistry off screen too – just what Bollywood needs at the moment.
3. Raj Babbar and Smita Patil
Raj Babbar had divorced his first wife to get married to Smita Patil, one of the greatest actors in Bollywood. The marriage could not last long since Patil died right after giving birth to son Pratiek. Had she been alive, you never know, it could have been one of those very few Bollywood marriages which actually last. But that was not to be.
2. Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukherjee
The Yash Raj baron had been married for quite some time to his first wife, Paayal Chopra. It was then that he met Rani Mukerji and the two fell in love. He then divorced his first wife in the year 2009. They dated for a long time, but the courtship was not leaked to the media. However, most people knew that they were in a relationship and about to get married. It was very recently, that the two got married in a very private ceremony. Well, some still like to keep mum about their personal lives.
1. Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan
Mahesh Bhatt was previously married to Lorraine Bright who later changed her name to Kiran Bhatt. They have two children Pooja Bhatt and Rahul Bhatt. This marriage faced the rocks since Bhatt went into a relationship with the then screen heart-throb Parveen Babi. This affair too did not last long. Later Bhatt married Soni Razdan and converted to Islam. They have two children Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt.
