In the past, several Bollywood stars hid their marriages (or relationship status) as they were worried about it impacting their debut film, and career in general. In recent times, several TV stars also kept their marriages a secret, and here are the reasons given by them.
Qayamat se Qayamat Tak was a huge hit and the chocolate faced Aamir Khan’s popularity soared after the movie. But for a long time the Khan hid his relation ship status.
The same with Juhi Chawla, who hid her marriage when she secretly married businessman Jai Mehta. It was only when she got pregnant that Juhi reluctantly revealed that she was married to the man. Later, Juhi confessed that she did it to save her career as she was sure that offers would start dwindling after marriage.
After her, actresses like Mahima Chaudhury and a few others tried hiding their marriage as they were insecure about their career.
In the case of Sridevi, its difficult to say if she hid her marriage status because of her career because her ‘husband’ Boney Kapoor was still married to first wife Mona. So Sridevi went on denying the relationship till her baby bump started showing. Eventually the couple had no choice but to admit to the relationship, giving the shock of her life to the now deceased ‘Mona’. At that point, Mona had said, “There was nothing left in my relationship with Boney to give it a chance because Sridevi was already with a child.”
While the other actresses later confessed about their deceit, actress Rekha never agreed that she was ever married to the late actor Vinod Mehra.
