Bollywood is about everything from controversies and affairs to relationships and break-ups. While we all might somehow know about the relationships that our favorite Bollywood stars have had or still have, there are some of the affairs that are deeply embedded in the pool of mystery. As we know that our B-town stars are quite guarded about their personal lives; but there have also been several times when these stars have come out in open to take potshots at their exes. Here are some ex-celebrity couples who went next level to insult their exes:
1. Sajid Khan & Jacqueline Fernandez
Indian filmmaker Sajid Khan and actress Jacqueline Fernandez met at the sets of Housefull 2. It was reported that the two are close to getting married but sadly (or happily) both parted their ways after being in a relationship for three years. The ugly breakup of the duo made Sajid throw such comments on Jacqueline.
“While we broke up in May 2013, in reality right from December 2012, it started becoming sour. When you don’t have a woman in your life, you don’t have someone constantly nagging you, so you end up working better and are more focused. I went for a holiday with her for five days in the middle of making Himmatwala and felt so bad when the film didn’t do well. For Humshakals, I have not taken a single holiday.”
2. Preity Zinta & Ness Wadia
Actress Preity Zinta started dating businessman Ness Wadia in 2005 but their fairytale relationship did not go well for long. Preity was reported to file a complaint against Ness in 2014, accusing him of molestation and infidelity. She said:
“He (Ness) intimidated me by saying he could make me disappear as I was a nobody and only an actress and he’s a powerful person… this incident in Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium has left me shattered and fear for my life.”
3. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan & Salman Khan
Their relationship story has been a subject of mystery for all. The once much-in-love couples now hardly face each other. It was reported that Bhaijaan’s abusive nature forced Aish to break up his relationship with him. She was reported to be quoting:
“After we broke up, he would call me and talk rubbish. He also suspected me of having affairs with my co-stars. I was linked up with everyone, from Abhishek Bachchan to Shahrukh Khan. There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks. And I would go to work as if nothing had happened. I stood by him at every time. That is why like any other self-respecting woman I ended my relationship with him”.
4. Saif Ali Khan & Amrita Singh
Saif and Amrita’s story is something that no Indian could ever get enough of. Amrita, who is 12 years older than Saif, got married to him in secret ceremony in 1991. They lived together for 13 years until their divorce in 2004.
After the separation, Saif came about in public and spoke this almost about everything honestly.
“It isn’t nice to be constantly reminded of how worthless you are and to have taunts, jeers, and abuses thrown at your mother and sister all the time. I’ve gone through all of it It’s also nice to be married to someone who’s fun, beautiful and non-judgemental. All three things. It’s better to have a hot and sexy wife. Never have room for regret and never say, ‘Oh, I wish I was married to a beautiful girl.”
5. Shahid Kapoor & Kareena Kapoor
The once love-birds Shahid & Kareena were almost four and a half year in a relationship. Where Shahid was a true example of a committed boyfriend, there were some other plans of cupid for Kareena. Post the breakup, Shahid seemed to be quite reeling and he was quoted saying this:
“If my director wants me to work with a cow, or a buffalo, as an actor—I’m ready to do it.” (when asked if he would ever work with Kareena again!). I blame it on my being a good boyfriend. Now, I have learned better. And I shall not be the most wonderful boyfriend. My most successful film Jab We Met, came when Kareena and I had broken up. I can only see it from a practical point of view. And I feel that some choices didn’t work for me.”
6. Akshay Kumar & Shilpa Shetty
Shilpa Shetty was madly in love with Khiladi Akshay Kumar. The two were going great until Akshay dropped him reportedly for Twinkle Khanna. In an interview in 2000, Shilpa gave a hard-hitting statement post her break-up.
“Akshay Kumar used me and conveniently dropped me after he found someone else. The only person, I was upset with, was him. But I’m sure he’ll get it all back. It’s not easy to forget the past so soon, but I’m glad I’ve had the strength to move on. Today, he’s a forgotten chapter as far as I’m concerned. I will never work with him again. Professionally, things have never looked better.”
7. Vivek Oberoi & Aishwarya Rai
The actor Vivek was the sweetest boyfriend ever to Aishwarya but things between the two went off-track when Vivek held press conferences and used her fame to create his own. Seeing his behavior, Aish publicly called Vivek an ‘Immature person’.
8. Deepika Padukone & Ranbir Kapoor
Deepika, being one of the most beautiful and least controversial actresses in B-town is also on the list. Her breakup with Ranbir broke her heart so much that she openly called Ranbir as ‘Casanova’ and in the Koffee with Karan, she quoted:
“Ranbir should endorse condoms(hinting at his adultery) and he also needs to work on his boyfriend skills!”
9. Kangana Ranaut & Hrithik Roshan
There’s no one who wouldn’t be knowing about an ugly brawl between Kangana and Hrithik. After Kangana called Hrithik as her ex-boyfriend, the string of controversies started. While Kangana spoke boldly about the tortures and made accusations on by Hrithik and his family, Hrithik also did not hold back and responded back.
Kangana once quoted:
“Yes, many lame rumors are doing rounds, even a dumb ass can tell where these rumors are coming from. I don’t know why exes do silly things to get your attention. For me, that chapter is over and I don’t dig graves.”
10. Kangana Ranaut & Aditya Pancholi
Kangana’s past relationship with Aditya also sparked while she was already facing allegations by Hrithik Roshan. About her relationship with Aditya, Kangana said:
“I was physically abused. This man who was my father’s age hit me hard on my head when I was 17. I started bleeding. I took out my sandal and hit his head hard and he started to bleed too. I lodged an FIR against the man.”
In response to this, Aditya said:
“She is a mad girl, what to do, did you see the interview? Didn’t you feel like some mad person was talking? Who talks like that? We have been in the industry for so long, nobody has ever spoken anything so evil about anyone. She is lying that’s why I am taking legal action against her. I don’t know about other people, but as far as my story goes and what she has spoken about me, she has said all lies.
11. Kangana Ranaut & Adhyayan Suman
Seems like Kangana found her love many a time! Kangana’s affair with Adhyayan disappeared the same way as the actor himself. As per Adhyayan, Kangana used to do black magic on him. Like really? Well, his words were:
“Being a metropolitan kid studying in London and New York, I was always away from things like astrology and black magic”.
