The troubled Bollywood marriages
When Bollywood celebs tie the knot, it becomes a much hyped event with fans and media persons following their every move. But what begins well does not end well always. Some Bollywood marriages that looked like a fairytale ended when harsh reality came crashing down. After the recent divorce between Hrithik Roshan and Sussane after 13 years of marriage, the interest in the history of not so perfect marriages has increased. It is ironical that in Bollywood movies these actors often represent the sanctity of the institution of marriage.
Hrithik Roshan - Sussane Khan
Bollywood ‘Greek God’ Hrithik Roshan married his childhood sweetheart Sussane Khan in 2000. Trouble first brew in 2010 when there were strong rumors about Hrithik having an affair with his co-star Barbara Mori. Early in his career Hrithik was linked with Kareena Kapoor as well. On the other hand, Sussane’s alleged closeness with actor Arjun Rampal made way into gossip circles. Finally in December last year both of them announced individually about their separation.
Anurag Kashyap - Kalki Koechlin
The marriage of eminent filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and actor Kalki Koechlin is also in troubled waters. In November last year Anurag stated to the media that, “Me and Kalki are separating. We are taking time off from each other to figure things out. We are not divorcing. We request the media to please respect our privacy and give us our space and not speculate.” They have refused to talk in public about it anymore but according to unconfirmed reports, they may go for divorce with Kashyap’s rumored closeness with actor Huma Qureshi now becoming a talking point.
Konkona Sen Sharma - Ranvir Shorey
