Bollywood Secret Affairs
Bollywood stars are always under the media glare. As a result, some of them try hard to keep their personal lives away from the limelight. While some couples openly share their relationship status, some try to keep it under the wraps until they feel the right time has come. Then there is the famous clichéd line, 'We're just friends' which is often used by stars to deny any relationship. Here are some affairs that have become part of Bollywood folklore.
Dilip Kumar-Madhubala: One of the most successful heroes in Indian film history had a famous romance with famous leading lady Madhubala which began in 1951 during the shooting of ‘Tarana.’ As far as the story goes Madhubala sent her hairdresser to Dilip Kumar with an Urdu note and a red rose and he accepted it to show his love. But her tyrannical father did not approve the relationship and they eventually parted ways.
Amitabh Bachchan- Rekha: It is one of the most famous secret romances in Bollywood history. The romance began on the sets of ‘Do Anjane’ when Amitabh had already married Jaya Bhaduri. Over the next several years they acted in several films and began spending more time together. But Jaya was determined that she would not leave Big B. The film, ‘Silsila’ was allegedly based on this real life love triangle. After this film, the affair suddenly ended and Rekha and Amitabh never worked together again.
Mithun-Sridevi: Mithun Chakraborty was already married to Yogita Bali when he fell for Sridevi. There were also reports in the media about a secret marriage. Yogita reportedly tried to commit suicide prompting Sridevi to end the relationship. Mithun is still married to Yogita while Sridevi married producer Boney Kapoor.
Shahid Kapoor- Sonakshi Sinha: While Shahid has not inclination to settle down any time soon, him and Sonakshi Sinha seems quite fond of each other. They apparently took a liking to each other while shooting for 'R… Rajkumar'. Though they are yet to accept it, they may be the next star couple.
Ranbir-Katrina: The only reason it is still considered secret is because they are yet to accept their relationship despite appearing in public together. The biggest proof of their relationship has been the leaked photos from a beach holiday in Spain.
