Breakups in Bollywood – five sad divorces

  1. Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapoor – Heartthrob of India, Karishma Kapoor shocked her fans when she broke her engagement with Abhishek Bachchan and chose to marry her childhood friend Sunjay Kapoor. No true reason is known for her breakup with Abhishek but the fans thought that maybe she was so much in love with Sunjay Kapoor that she chose him over Abhishek Bachchan. However, this speculation proved to be wrong as soon after the marriage, everything between Karisma and Sunjay was not so good. Both of them started living separately after having a daughter and then again reconciled to give another chance to their relationship but things did not work out. Even after having another child their relationship grew bitter day by day and they finally decided to part ways forever. It is said that Karisma’s brother in law, Saif Ali Khan and her younger sister Kareena Kapoor acted as mediators between the two as Saif had faced similar situation in his own life when he divorced his first wife Amrita Singh. He made the couple realize that there was no point dragging a relationship when it was not working. Karisma and Sunjay have filed for a divorce and their love marriage is seeing an ugly ending as they have to go through the fight for the custody of their two children Samaira and Kian Raj Kapoor.


  1. Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh – Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh faced all odds to marry each other. Not only Amrita Singh was twelve years older to Saif Ali Khan, she belonged to a different religion too. They went against the will of their parents to unite but as years went by, the love between them disappeared. Their thirteen years long marriage came to an end with a mutual divorce. Even the two kids could not help them bond for lifetime. Saif still shares a good friendly relationship with Amrita and their children were also spotted at the second marriage of Saif with Kareena Kapoor.


  1. Amir Khan and Reena Dutta – Amir Khan and Reena Dutta had a Hindu-Muslim love marriage at a very young age. They spent fifteen years as a couple before they finally split. The mutual divorce was filed on basis of temperamental differences. However, Amir’s second wife Kiran is also suspected as the real reason behind the divorce. Though Amir and Reena are divorced now, they share a good rapport. Reena is still viewed as the daughter in law for his family. She is spotted at all important ceremonies, festivals, weddings etc. related to Amir’s family and her advice and decisions are valued by the family and Amir too. She is even friendly with Amir’s second wife Kiran. After the divorce, the custody of two children Junaid and Ira went to Reena and Amir now is working hard to give his son a big launch in Bollywood.


  1. Sanjay Dutt and Rhea Pillai – Sanjay Dutt and Rhea Pillai also had a love marriage and their love was evident from the fact that Rhea Pillai was the one who stood by him during his arrest in Bombay Blast case when most of his closest friends and relatives did not support him. Then what went wrong? The Casanova attitude of Sunjay Dutt became two frustrating for Rhea and allegedly she got close to Tennis player Leander Peas when Sanjay was not interested in giving up his bad habits and was also unable to spend time with her due to his busy schedules.


  1. Hrithik Roshan and Suzzane Khan – Hrithik Roshan gained a lot of appraisal for marrying his first love, Suzzane Khan even after he became a superstar. The couple was one of the hottest and sizzling couples of the Bollywood. Their love and marriage was an ideal for other couples but things started changing when Hrithik allegedly became closer to Barbara Mori, one of the actresses of his movie. Suzzane was seen living in a hotel for some days when the newspapers and magazines were writing about the affair between Hrithik and Barbara however, she hid it from the public by saying that she was living there because her home was being renovated. She later started living with Hrithik again but the 18 years long relationship, five years as lovers and thirteen years as a wedded couple, was destined to be ruined with a divorce after having two sons Hridhaan and Hrehaan. Suzzane is also linked with the actor Arjun Rampal which both of them deny.

Vineeta Sinha, the owner and president of Vineeta Constructions Co. is a writer and blogger at heart. An economics graduate, the talented writer has been in the writing industry for years. When asked about how she manages the two very different professions, she says, “Construction business is what me and my husband who is a civil engineer dreamt of together and I am glad we succeeded but writing is something I have been doing years before I stepped into the construction world. I was very young when I realized that there was a hidden passion for writing in me and I unveiled it through my school magazine for the very first time and there has been no looking back since then. Though construction contributes more in running my world, writing is something that completes me.”
