10 Most Surprising Bollywood Marriages Of All Time

Here are some celebrity weddings that took the Bollywood fans by surprise. Let’s take a look at them!

1. Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput

After several linkups and rumours with B-town actresses including Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha and Priyanka Chopra, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput’s marriage announcement was more like a volcanic eruption of sorts, crushing a lot of hearts! Shahid and Mira got married on July 7, 2015 in Delhi and welcomed a tiny princess on August 26, 2016.

This ‘Shahid getting married episode’ gained a lot of attention and even did some crazy damage to this handsome hunk’s female fan following. Shahid’s wedding to Mira was not as surprising as the fact that he chose to have an arranged one. And, that too with someone who was 13-and-a-half-years younger to him! But now that we look at these new parents, they don’t look like they had an arranged marriage and have such a huge gap.

2. John Abraham and Priya Runchal

When B-town fans woke up with a hangover of the New Year, 2014, there was something waiting to greet them- New Year wishes from "John and Priya Abraham".

Yes, that is what happened on January 2, 2014, when John Abraham’s twitter profile read:

“Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed 2014! May this year bring you love, good fortune and joy. Love, John and Priya Abraham”
The couple had met in 2010, at a gym in Bandra. Though it was in 2014 that John accepted to the status change in the relationship, many believe that the couple had got married long time back. So, in all sense of the word, it was truly a surprise!

3. Sridevi and Boney Kapoor

The two first met on the sets of Mr. India, and he was blown-over by her innocence and un-starry attitude. However, it took him time to win her love because she was an introvert and kept to herself.

Boney's biggest problem was that he did not know how to approach her, and that he was already married and had two kids. All this could not keep Boney Kapoor from pursuing Sridevi. He was a shoulder of comfort for her when her father passed away. He even became her pillar of strength when her mother was seriously ill. Sridevi even stayed at his home for a few days in 1993, when serial bomb blasts in Mumbai had put the city under high alert. During all this, Sridevi was drawn towards him, and she got pregnant with his child (Jhanvi). They decided to get married after the news of her pregnancy. This marriage shocked everyone because Boney had not yet got a divorce from his first wife, Mona Kapoor. The love-struck couple kept their marriage a secret for six months, till the time his divorce was finalised.

4. Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra

Once again the news of Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra's wedding spread around, everyone thought it to be a hoax. But, this time around it really happened. The discreet couple did not shy away from accepting that they had tied the knot in a hush-hush ceremony in Italy.

The couple had a formal church wedding, and Aditya did show that he doesn’t just make romantic films, he lives them too. The Yash Raj scion flew in a pandit to Italy to make the leading lady of his life happy. He even wore a traditional dhoti-kurta with the headgear, and Rani donned a traditional red Banarasi saree, with alta (traditional red colour that Bengali brides wear in place of mehendi) on her feet and palms.

5. Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta

Juhi was at the peak of her career when she got married to industrialist, Jay Mehta. The two kept their wedding a secret for a long time. The bubbly diva, who has starred in a number of super-hit films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Darr, Bol Radha Bol, Ishq and many more, always maintained that she and Jay are just “good friends”. But, she finally revealed her marital status when she was expecting her first child. We are not sure of the exact wedding date of this couple, all that is known is that it happened in December 1997.

6. Hema Malini and Dharmendra

Hema Malini, the dream girl for every man, broke hearts of her lovers and admirers after marrying Dharmendra. Although, Bollywood’s garam Dharam hailed from Punjab and Hema Malini from South India, no social or regional barriers could keep them apart. However, when Hema’s family got to know about their affair, her father was strongly against this match. Things were not smooth sailing at Dharmendra’s end as well, since he was already married and had two sons.

Hema decided to pursue her relationship with Dharmendra, after her father's demise, which left her mother deeply hurt. Since Dharmendra’s first wife was not ready to give him a divorce, both the stars decided to convert to Islam in order to get married. So, conquering the tough times the two love-birds got married in a secret nikah ceremony. The two later got married in an Iyengar style (since Hema is an Iyer), on May 2, 1980.

7. Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan

The young, Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan fell in love with gorgeous and talented Amrita Singh, after the two met in a party. When the party got over, she invited him over to her place. After a few minutes, Saif, was at her doorsteps with a bottle of Scotch, and, Saif has publicly admitted that he never left after that. Certainly, age becomes just a number when you are in love, but, for the rest of the world the staring gap of 12 years between the two came as a shock.

The staring age-gap and disapproval of Saif's parents on their relationship, was not enough to keep the two lovers apart. Saif went on to marry Amrita, and were pronounced man and wife in October 1991. Amrita, who was at the peak of her acting career then, decided to turn away from the film industry, to settle in the role of a home-maker. However, this young and passionate relationship could not stand the test of changing times. 13 years and two children later, Saif and Amrita got a highly-publicised divorce.

8. Kim Sharma and Ali Punjani

If the marriage of this cute Mohabbatein girl came as a shocker to you, we don’t blame you really, because there was literally no news of Kim Sharma and Ali Punjani’s courtship or wedding plans. Kim and Ali, who is a Kenya-based businessman, got married in 2010. The wedding took place in Mombasa and not a single Bollywood soul was seen or invited! What’s more? There are no photos of Kim and Ali’s marriage or them hanging out generally as a married couple.

Not much is known about Kim and Ali’s relationship, but it is believed that Kim met Ali when she was on a Safari trip in Kenya. Just a week of knowing each other and Kim and Ali decided to tie the knot. During that time, Ali was awaiting a divorce from his first wife. This is Ali’s second marriage and he has three kids from his previous wedding.

9. Urmila Matondkar and Mir Mohsin Akhtar

The news of Bollywood’s beloved Rangeela girl’s wedding was more of a sweet shock than a heavy jolt! The reason being, Urmila Matondkar had been single for a while, she did not speak about settling down or getting married and so, obviously, none of her fans saw this coming. Urmila married Mir Mohsin Akhtar, ten years her junior, a model by profession who belongs to a family of businessmen. He was the second runners-up at the Times of India, Mr. India 2007 competition and has even appeared in Bollywood movies like It’s A Man’s World, Mumbai Mast Kallander, and Luck By Chance.

10. Preity Zinta and Gene Goodenough

Our favourite dimpled beauty from Bollywood Preity Zinta was going strong with businessman Ness Wadia, and most of us thought that marriage was definitely on the cards for this fabulous looking couple. But this beautiful love story went kaput when reports of Ness slapping Preity at a party started doing the rounds.

In 2014, Preity even lodged a molestation case against Ness Wadia for threatening and abusing her. Beyond this, it was obvious the couple would never reconcile. As it usually happens, everyone forgot about this episode.
