11 Famous Bollywood Celebrity Couples Who Changed their Religion for Marriages

So, let us take a look at some of the most powerful and famous inter-religious marriages in Bollywood.

1. Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao

Bollywood’s 'Mr. Perfectionist', Aamir Khan, fell in love with Kiran Rao, a Brahmin from Bangalore. They tied the knot in 2005. While they did set an example by marrying despite the religion difference, the two were an inspiration to a lot of couples as they announced the birth of their son, Azad in 2011, whom they welcomed in their lives with the help of surrogacy.

2. Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Chibber

Indian cinema’s king of romance, Shah Rukh Khan, was no less romantic in his personal life. He fell in love with Gauri Chibber, who belonged to a Hindu Brahmin family. And, the disagreements and strong resistance from her family could not stop our King Khan from believing in his love. The two got married in 1991 and have been one of the best examples of fidelity in marriage.

3. Sohail Khan and Seema Sachdev

The couple has an interesting love story, which is no less than any masala Bollywood flick. The two ran away when Sohail’s first movie as a director, Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya, was released. They first married as per the Arya Samaj rituals, since Seema is a Punjabi. Later in the evening, they had a nikah. The two were later accepted by their families and are blessed with two sons.

4. Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani

They fell in love during the making of Dil Chahta Hai, and got married after a three-year-long relationship. The two belonged to different religious backgrounds, and Adhuna was six years elder to Farhan as well. They have two daughters and the couple is separated now.

5. Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan

The latest to join the club are Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu, who dated each other for a long time before they got married, on January 25, 2014. The couple met on the sets of Dhoondthe Reh Jaoge (2009) and fell in love. They were even in a live-in relationship for some time before tying the knot.

6. Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora

Just like his brother, even Arbaaz fell in love with a non-Muslim girl, Malaika Arora. However, Arbaaz did not follow Sohail's footsteps when it came to marrying his ladylove. Rather, he took permission from Malaika’s mother and the two had a Christian wedding. The couple is now divorced!

7. Shakeel Ladak and Amrita Arora

Amrita followed the footsteps of her sister Malaika, and married a Muslim guy, Shakeel Ladak. Amrita’s mother is a Catholic while her father is a Punjabi. So, to honour all the cultures they belong to, the couple got married in three different styles- Christian, Muslim and Punjabi.

8. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

This was one of the most talked-about weddings of Bollywood. While many people expected that the actress will change her religion after marriage, but just like her mother-in-law, Sharmila Tagore, she too set an example by remaining a Hindu. The two were blessed with a baby boy named Taimur in 2016.

9. Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza

This super-cute couple of Bollywood is yet another very beautiful example of the inter-faith marriage. Genelia is a Mangalorean Catholic and Riteish is a Maharashtrian Hindu. The two got married in 2012, in both Maharashtrian and Christian style, so as to show respect to each other’s traditions. They are blessed with two baby boys.

10. Sanjay Dutt and Dilnawaz Sheikh (Maanyata)

Maanyata, whose real name is Dilnawaz Sheikh, entered Sanjay’s life in 2006, through a common friend. She won his heart and they soon got married despite different religious backgrounds and a whopping 19-year-old age gap.

11. Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan

Even though the couple recently parted ways, they were once an example of true love and commitment. They got married in 2000 and got divorced in 2014. They have two sons.
