Bollywood Marriages: Made in heaven or made in Bollywood?

4 Feb

Do you ever wonder why the FM radios in the country don’t ever wish the Bollywood stars on their marriage anniversaries, while they make a hell lot of noise on their birthdays? Of course the smart Radio stations very well know the volatile nature of the celebrity marriages.  It’s kind of funny how Bollywood portrays the image of the heroes and heroines in the movies, fell in love with someone and stay with him/her happily ever after. In reality these Bollywood actors change their spouses at their will and are ready to commit their life with someone who is married or divorced without any second thoughts. In India the marriages are surely made in heaven and the divorce saga is something which has really not touched the common man of our country, like in some other western countries. Bollywood movies can be given some credit for binding the couples of the country for long, but if we look into the real married life of these Bollywood actors it says a different story. One thing which is sure, be it Bollywood or Hollywood, for people with deep pockets, changing spouses is really not a big deal.

Let’ have a look at some of the Bollywood’s marriages:
