It is no news that women love older men and this might be the reason why many B- town actresses go for the 'been-there-done-that' divorcee men, when it comes to tying the knot. Recently Bollywood saw a number of high profile weddings and almost all of them saw leading actresses going for the mature and suave, but divorcee partners.
When Kareena Kapoor
and Saif Ali Khan first started dating, a number of jokes surfaced and many presumed that it would never last as Bebo was 10 years younger to Saif, who was a divorcee with two children and looked confused as far as his relationships went. But both Saif and Kareena proved everyone wrong when they tied the knot in 2012. Kareena looked radiant in her wedding day, when she came out to greet the press and everything looked in place.
The same cannot be said for her older sister Karishma Kapoor. She broke up her engagement with Abhishek Bachchan
and within a few months declared that she would marry childhood friend Sanjay Kapoor, who was a divorcee and was once married to Nandita Mahtani. They tied the knot at the earliest but domestic discord happened soon after, and Karishma is currently trying to find her way back to Bollywood after being separated from beau.
Vidya Balan achieved her lifelong dream to marry SRK. Figuring out that many a women loved Shahrukh Khan and can't have him, so Balan's next step was to get a namesake in the form of UTV honcho, Siddharth Roy Kapoor. He also experienced in the nuptials loopholes as he has been married twice before and hopefully third time would prove lucky for both him and Balan.
Mahesh Bhupati and Lara Dutta seemed like an unlikely pair but cupid did strike both of them and both found love in each other. Bhupati was initially married to Shweta Jaishankar but that did not work out. Now Bhupati and Lara Dutta are happily married and new parents.
The fifth and the last actress to choose a divorced man as a life partner was Shilpa Shetty. They had a lavish wedding after the initial hiccups, when media reported that Raj Kundra's first marriage failed because Shetty came in the picture. This claim has been refuted time and again and now they finally have their happily ever after.
