Shilpa Shetty will be adding herself to yet another bandwagon when she ties the knot with beau Raj Kundra: the “Bollywood-actress-who-has-married-a-previously-married-man” wagon that is. However, she is not the first of Bollywood leading ladies who have done the same in the past.
Hema Malini did the same when she married Dharmendra who was then married to wife Prakash. He also had two sons, Sunny and Bobby along with a daughter from Prakash. The veteran actor converted to Islam before marrying Malini. The couple has two daughters, Esha and Ahana between them.
Writer Salim Khan, father to Salman Khan, too has two wives: Salma Khan and cabaret queen, Helen. He married her and adopted a young girl, Arpita.
Sridevi married Boney Kapoor who had previously been married with two children. As did Shabana Azmi who married Javed Akhtar who was married to Honey Irani, mother to his talented children, Farhan and Zoya Akhtar.
Amongst the younger actresses, Karisma Kapoor entered into wedlock with Sanjay Kapur who was formerly married to fashion designer Sanjay Kapur. The same is for Mahima Chaudhary who married architect Bobby Mukherjee , father of two. Raveena Tandon too falls into this category.
And its not just marriage. Kareena Kapoor is dating Saif Ali Khan who was earlier married to Amrita Singh. And if that isn’t enough, Tabu is said to be secretly dating married man and actor Nagarjuna.
