Around this time (in the 90s) Sanjay was linked to the beautiful Madhuri Dixit, the Dhak Dhak girl of Bollywood. The two allegedly got close to each other on the sets of Saajan, which surprised many (even Madhuri’s father was unhappy) because Sanjay Dutt aka Sanju was the bad boy of the industry. However, after Sanjay’s TADA arrest, it was time for Madhuri to move on. She got married to Dr Nene and moved to the US for few years; the Nene family is now back in Mumbai.

    Raj Kapoor: Raj Kapoor was a married man and therefore, the relationship did not materialise into marriage. A man of principles, he stayed with his wife till the very end. It’s no longer a secret that when Raj Kapoor and Nargis met on the movie sets, they fell in love. A passionate romance that became the talk of the whole nation! The iconic hindi song “Pyaar Hua Ikraar Hua Hai” (from the movie Shree 420) is still a reflection of Raj Kapoor and Nargis’ real-life love.However, this love story failed because Raj Kapoor was a married man who did not wish to leave his wife/family. Nargis was also not happy with Raj Kapoor’s womanizing ways, and went on to marry Sunil Dutt (they fell in love during the making of Mother India).


  1. MadhuBala: Madhubala was in love with Dilip Kumar. It is said that Dilip Kumar wanted her to quit movies and marry him, but as she was supporting her family, she refused to do so. Hence, Dilip Kumar went ahead and married Saira Banu instead.

With all these heartbreaking stories of our celebs we just want to say that marriages are made in Heaven…
