Bollywood’s glamorous diva, Sridevi is no more. Her death has made people talk about her family, career, and even about her past even more. Popularly known as Bollywood’s ‘Chandni,’ she is one of those actresses whose past has always been grabbing headlines. The world of Indian film industry is full of controversies. The more one achieves success and fame in the industry, the more one has to face rivalries. Somethin similar happened to Sridevi during her peak days. Back in 1970s, rumors of Sridevi and Mithun Chakraborty affair started grabbing headlines. Gossip mongers enjoyed gathering information about the brewing romance between the two rising stars of that time.
It is said that the two were madly in love to the extent that the lovebirds secretly got married to each other. According to reports, the two fell in love while shooting for ‘Jaag Utha Insan’ in 1984. At that time, Mithun was already married to Yogita Bali and if reports are to be believed, Sridevi wanted Mithun to divorce his wife. The secret marriage between Sridevi and Mithun took place in 1985 and it got nullified in 1988.
The controversy took its toll when Yogeeta allegedly attempted to commit suicide after knowing about her cheating husband. In an interview, Yogeeta expressed, “I will accept it even if he takes on a second wife.” However, things took a turn when Mithun got to know about Boney’s interest in Sridevi. Surprisingly, to prove her love for Mithun, Sridevi even tied a rakhi to Boney. The incident got confirmed by Boney Kapoor’s first wife Mona in an interview.
It is said that Sridevi loved Mithun a lot but things changed when Sridevi realized that he will never leave Yogeeta. This feeling made Sridevi leave Mithun and move on. Later, Sridevi got secretly married to Boney Kapoor but the two kept it as a secret until she delivered their first child, Jhanvi Kapoor.
