Divorce seems to be the flavour of the season. Barely five months into her marriage to the Nepali businessman Samrat Dahal, Manisha Koirala the talented but quirky actress, was back in news for all the incorrect reasons. it had been speculated that the Dil Se lady was headed for splitsville.
And then again, the media circles are abuzz with former actress Karisma Kapoor who is ready to finish her marriage with Delhi businessman, Sanjay Kapur.
We go down the memory lane and list marriages that did not last...
Guru Dutt - Geeta Dutt
He was a cinematic genius. She a talented singer. He a lover of Bengali culture. She a Bengali by birth. it had been natural that the 2 would fall crazy then marry. Marriage and two children later, the wedding hit a roadblock. Many say that Waheeda Rehman was the rationale. Guru Dutt cast a dusky southern beauty, Waheeda Rehman in Pyasa and therefore the rest, they assert is history. The director was smitten completely by this delicate beauty... though, Waheeda maintains to the present day, that the ambers were one-sided.
The one-sided romance, failures at the box office (Kaagaz Ke Phool & Pyaasa - both were is his labours of love) and horrific lifestyle (drinking, smoking and eccentric streak) led to his end and therefore the end of his married life. At the time of his death, he was separated from wife Geeta Dutt and Waheeda Rehman had distanced herself from him.
Vinod Khanna - Geetanjali
Vinod Khaana is among the foremost handsome men Hindi films have ever known-dusky, tall, broad-shouldered and powerful. Though he began as a villain in films, producers and directors soon realized that he was actor material. In fact, competing against Amitabh Bachchan for much of his career, he was the darling of the critics very much like the masses adored Bachchan.
Early within the 70s, even when he was still establishing his career, Khaana went on to marry his college sweetheart Geetanjali and within two years the 2 were proud parents to 2 boys, Rahul and Akshaye. But somewhere around 1975, Khanna became the disciple of acharya Rajneesh then in the early 1980s, he moved to Rajneeshpuram within the US for four years washing dishes and dealing as Osho's gardener.
Though he was in-tuned together with his family over the phone from the US, the separation took the toll on his pretty wife leading to a divorce. Vinod is now married to Kavita Khanna, a lawyer by profession and features a son and daughter.
Zeenat Aman - Mazhar Khan
There's something about good looking, intelligent and super sexy women, particularly of the 70s era. Zeenat Aman was a flag bearer of kinds of this brigade. She had a stunning body which she never shied faraway from showing off. She had a mind of her own and never thought of letting it known. Sadly, she always got interested in men who were handsome and famous and never ever capable of respecting a lady for being an independent person.
Zeenat dated (and married) Sanjay Khan and was publicly abused by Sanjay and his first wife, Zarine Khan during a hotel in Mumbai. the woman was also rumoured to possess had a roaring with Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan but nothing concrete really came off it. within the early 80s, Zeenat finally settled down with small-time actor, Mazhar Khan from whom she has two sons.
But this marriage too was severely stressed with Mazhar and his family have actually thrashed Zeenat in their home. Zeenat claimed that joining the beating session was her elder son who had been brainwashed by her in-laws.
The marriage ended with Mazhar Khan dying an alcoholic in 1998.
Dimple Kapadia - Rajesh Khanna
He was truly the sole superstar the country has known. Rajesh Khanna broke many-a-hearts when he tied the knot with the 'Bobby beauty' Dimple Kapadia. It couldn't are better matched-she a wonder-eyed 16-year-old tasting success for the primary time in her life and he somebody keen on settling down.
Not many know the precise reason for the 2 moving apart. Speculation put it to Rajesh Khanna's sudden fall from superstardom. A string of failures in careers had an enormous role to play within the two moving apart.
Though they didn't really divorce, the separation did happen. With time though the bitterness is all gone. Today, they're proud parents to Twinkle Khanna (married to Superstar Akshay Kumar) and Rinke Khanna (married to Samit Saran).
Rekha - Mukesh Agarwal
Sometimes, one love is that the only love. that would alright be said of evergreen Rekha. Born Bhanupriya Ganesan, the illegitimate daughter of Southern idol, Shivaji Ganesan, when Rekha made an entry in Hindi films she was an obnoxious looking ugly duckling though the star power was still there to be seen. In time, she metamorphosed into a gorgeous swan-like lissome dusky beauty. Many insist it had been after she came in touch with a particular Mr Bachchan.
Reams of paper are printed speculating the precise twist and turns during this triangle. If the palpable passion in their films is to be believed, the chemistry between the 2 was electrifying. But marriage wasn't to be.
Rekha was rumoured to possess married Vinod Mehra but that was speculation. She definitely married businessman, Mukesh Aggarwal but the wedding just didn't work for Rekha and her husband, in utter disappointment, hung himself to death.
Randhir Kapoor - Babita
He was the Kapoor khandan scion and she or he an upcoming actress. Randhir Kapoor and Babita did several films together before deciding to tie the knot. it's said that the first years were rosy but strains began to show soon. it's speculated that Babita, cousin sister of famous actress Sadhna, couldn't deal with the superstardom of the Kapoors and walked out of the wedding together with her two daughters in tow. Though Randhir Kapoor and Babita never divorced, they never ever stayed together either.
Rakhee - Gulzar
She was fragile Bengali beauty the likes of which none had seen. He was a talented lyricist-director the likes of whom Bollywood wouldn't see for an extended, long time. Love blossomed but the marriage couldn't be sustained. He was known to be violent while she is slightly neurotic, as per reports.
Reena Roy - Mohsin Khan
70s star Reena Roy was absolutely hooked into Pakistani cricketer Mohsin Khan. So was her debonair cricketer loverboy who would fly to London, especially to satisfy her. the 2 tied the knot in 1983 only to separate soon. it had been a pain-filled divorce that saw Mohsin get their daughter's custody. Much later, when Mohsin re-married, he gave up claim over his daughter. Today, Reena Roy lives in Mumbai together with her daughter, now renamed Sanam.
Sanjay Dutt - Rhea Pillai
Sanjay Dutt was the last word casanova of Bollywood dating actresses like Tina Munim, starlet Richa Sharma, Madhuri Dixit, Lisa Ray, Rhea Pillai, Nadia Durrani (London-based) finally settling down with Manyata.
Rumour has it that while Sanju baba had a maddening romance with Madhuri, he actually married three women-first his wife Richa Sharma who died early within their marriage; then Rhea Pillai who stood by him during his crazy-days in the jail. Sadly, it had been a love that couldn't see a bright future. While adversity brought them close, good times couldn't keep them together. While nothing really went wrong, so to say, they simply drifted away...
The marriage led to 2005. Sanjay is now married to Manyataa.
Saif - Amrita
There was another star couple that just couldn't pull it on. When the 2 met in 1991, Amrita was a successful actress and he had only begun. But love blossomed and marriage of the apparent outcome. But the wedding wasn't easy. Saif's parents didn't approve of the match; therefore the two married secretly. Of course, later the oldsters came over. What's even amazing it that the 2 remained married for on the brink of 13 years, having two children, Sara and Ibrahim together. But the tempestuous relationship had to return to pass when a choice had to be taken.
It would be safe to assume that Amrita got trapped in happy (or read mundane) matrimony while Saif was slowly coming off his own and located the connection varying boring to choking. In time, Saif's name was to be attached to pretty faces like Riya Sen, Smriti Mishra and Preity Zinta. Things changed completely when Saif met Roza.
Soon, it had been splitsville for the 2 once they finally divorced in 2004.
Nandita Das - Saumya Sen
The feisty and gutsy actress has now seen two divorces though her other is most talked about. Saumya Sen, a billboard executive, married Nandita in 2002 and that they stayed married for seven years. But in 2009, Nandita ended the wedding citing irreconcilable difference.
She bounced back though and is now married the third time, this point to environment entrepreneur Subodh Maskara and features a four-month-old son with him called Vihaan.
Likewise, Hollywood has seen its own list of failed marriages- Eva Parker-Tony Parker;
Sandra Bullock - Jesse James; Jennifer Aniston - Brad Pitt; Kate Winslet - Sam Mendes;
Britney Spears - Kevin Federline; Imran Khan - Jemima Goldsmith and Rihanna - Chris Brown.
