Bollywood and its stars are known for keeping their private lives under the wraps. Some of the secrets are held so close that they never come out. However, because of the huge fan following that these stars have, and the amount of gossip that encircles every aspect of their lives, some of these secrets tend to come out through one source or another.
One such secret is the alleged link-ups and affairs of the B-town people. Over the years, these affairs have been nothing less than scandalous. Some of them even converted to marriages, or led to the divorce of an existing marriage. Here is a list of 10 such unknown first wives of our beloved Bollywood actors:
1. Sanjay Dutt and Rhea Pillai
Before Manyata came into Dutt’s life, he was married to Rhea Pillai. Their marriage lasted from 1998 to 2005 and the reason for divorce was said to be Rhea’s alleged affair with Leander Paes.
2. Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna
Farhan Akhtar was married to hairstylist Adhuna and they even have 2 children together. They were married for 15 long years. Hence, their separation and eventual divorce came as a shock to many.
3. Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta
Before Kiran Rao, Aamir was married to Reena Dutta for 16 years. They even have two children, daughter Ira and Son Junaid.
4. Pulkit Samrat and Shweta Rohira
Not many know that Pulkit Samrat was a married man when he made his debut in Bollywood. He was spouse to Shweta Rohira, who is Salman Khan’s rakhi sister. They were married for a year and got separated following rumours of Pulkit’s alleged affair with his Sanam Re co-star Yami Gautam.
5. Mithun Chakraborty and Sridevi
The secret marriage of Mithun and Sridevi was the talk of the town in yesteryears and many still believe it to be a true story.
6. Dharmendra and Parkash Kaur
Dharmendra was married to Parkash Kaur before he tied the knot with dreamgirl Hema Malini.
7. Kamal Haasan and Vani Ganapathy
Many of us only know of Kamal Haasan’s marriage to Sarika. However, that was not his first marriage. He was married to Vani Ganapathy and they got divorced after Kamal was said to be having an affair with one of his co-stars.
8. Kishore Kumar and Ruma Guha Thakurta
The yesteryear superstar and singer, Kishore Kumar too was married and not many know of his nuptials with Ruma Guha Thakurta.
9. Vinod Khanna and Geetanjali
Vinod Khanna’s first wife was Geetanjali and not Kavita as many still believe it to be.
The private lives of these Bollywood biggies are not as glamorous as we seem to think and definitely not as romantic as portrayed in the movies that we love. These failed marriages of the stars is a proof of that.
