Often our favourite Bollywood divas have been accused of breaking up relationships and happily being someone’s second or third wife. These actresses come up with the best storylines for films in which they unwittingly turn into vamps.
However, it is their own preference to fall in love with married men rather than the other way around. Here is a list of female actors who have been accused as home-wreckers:
Bollywood’s zero figure diva Shilpa Shetty married Raj Kundra on November 22, 2009, and the couple is now enjoying family life with their son.
Their marriage made headlines, but the diamond ring on Shilpa’s finger proves Raj Kundra’s love for her. However, she was blamed for severing Raj and his ex-wife Kavita’s marriage.
Rani has had many hits under the Yash Chopra banner, and she gradually got close to Aditya Chopra. She was the lead actress in many of his films, and as a result, they grew closer and fell in love. It is generally speculated that Aditya ended his seven-year marriage to Payal Chopra in order to marry Rani Mukerji.
Reena and Aamir had been neighbours and lovers for years before fleeing the house to marry at the age of 19. They were like a dream pair who were desperately in love before Aamir met Kiran Rao on the sets of Laagan. Aamir married Kiran Rao after his previous marriage of 15 years ended, and the couple have a son together.
Mahesh’s first wife was Shvetha Jaishankar, from whom he later split. Lara Dutta, the former Miss Universe, is thought to be the reason for the split. Shvetha also confirmed that they began dating when Mahesh was still married.
When Shabana Azmi announced her relationship with Javed Akhtar, who was already married at the time, the world couldn’t process the news. Javed Akhtar had two children with his first date, but he abandoned them both for Shabana Azmi.
When South Indian sensation Sridevi came into their home, Boney Kapoor introduced her to his wife as his sister. Later, they formed feelings for each other, which led to the extramarital affair. Boney Kapoor’s first partner, Mona, did not divorce him until the day she died.
Anil Thadani was already married to Natasha Sippy, Ramu Sippy’s daughter, when he formed feelings for Raveena Tandon. Anil’s attraction to Raveena was the primary reason for his divorce, however their union was very much criticized by the public.
It was rumoured that Hema Malini and Dharmendra were madly in love with each other. Dharmendra, on the other hand, was already married to Prakash Kaur, and she declined to divorce him. So Dharmendra and Hema Malini eloped and converted to Islam to marry.
Vani abandoned her profession as a dancer after marrying Kamal Haasan in 1978, and after a few years, she moved to the United States to work as a makeup artist for Kamal, who likes to play with his looks in film. During that year, Kamal met Sarika and they fell in love.
