Bollywood marriages are surely something to look at. All the glamour and gala put in one place and who can resist a big fat Indian wedding. But controversy is the second name of Bollywood and it doesn’t leave it behind even when it comes to love and marriages. Today, we have for you some of the most scandalous and debated Bollywood marriages which were thoroughly surrounded by controversies. Have a look-
Sridevi and Boney Kapoor
The love story that tops our list is the one that caused an uproar in Bollywood way back. This is because Boney’s ex-wife Mona had graciously hosted the Sridevi when she was new to Mumbai. Sridevi even stayed at his house when the city was on high alert in 1993 and ended up getting pregnant with Boney’s kid. Mona was completely shocked when she got to know that Sridevi and Boney Kapoor had ended up in each other’s back behind her back. The couple eventually got married and hid it for 6 months until making it public. Sridevi was and still is considered as the reason which broke off the 13 years long marriage of Boney Kapoor and Mona Kapoor. Their marriage was one of the most controversial marriages of Bollywood.
Hema Malini and Dharmendra
Our south “Indian Dreamgirl” also had to face enormous challenges whilst marrying the love of her life Dharmendra. Some were due to the regional differences, that is Hema from being South and Dharmendra being a Punjabi. Other than that Dharmendra’s existing marriage and two kids from the first marriage were also a major obstacle in their marriage. This did not go well, particularly with Hema Malini’s father who did not approve of this marriage. Therefore, Hema decided to marry her love after the sad demise of her father and both of them adopted Islam and having a secret ‘Nikaah’ as Dharmendra’s wife had refused to divorce him.

Nargis and Sunil Dutt
Even today, inter-caste marriages are a big taboo by some. Nargis and Sunil Dutt’s marriage took place during the post-partition era! Imagine the ruckus it must have created. Nargis, who was upset with her very painful break up from Raj Kapoor found solace in Sunil Dutt’s arms. Their love grew stronger especially when he saved her life when the sets accidentally caught fire. After the incident, Nargis wrote in her personal diary, "If it were not for him, perhaps I would have ended my life. For I alone know the turmoil that was going through me. 'I want you to live,' he (Sunil Dutt) said and I felt I had to live."
