Its common for most Bollywood actors to hide their marriages, because most of them think that it will impact their career. But even more shocking is when you hear about Bollywood celeb divorces; especially when the couple seemed to be a very happy couple and have been together for several years.
Here we take a look at the famous Bollywood celebrity divorces, some of which made big headlines.
Hrithik Roshan-Sussanne Roshan
This one was indeed shocking as the couple made a cute pair and they had lovely children – Hrehaan and Hridaan. Nobody expected them to go separate ways. Even more shocking was the rumor that Sussanne had asked for an astronomical amount as alimony, which Hrithik Roshan denied.
The good thing is that the two have maintained cordial relation with one another despite getting divorced.
Aamir Khan–Reena Dutta
Aamir Khan being a private person this didn’t make big headlines. Its because the Aamir and Reena Dutta (Aamir Khan’s childhood sweetheart) are still cordial after the split. Aamir had hidden his marital status when ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ was released; his fans only came to know about his marriage later on.
What shocked everybody was that Aamir Khan got married to a much younger woman Kiran Rao. Aamir’s kids – Junaid and Ira live with ex-wife Reena.
Saif Ali Khan–Amrita Singh
Something didn’t look right about the couple even when they got married. Everybody was surprised by their decision to get married. the couple also had an age gap of 12 years between them. Saif is now married to Kareena Kapoor, whereas Saif’s kids Sara and Ibrahim live with their mother Amrita Singh.
Karisma Kapoor-Sunjay Kapur
As per the latest news, the couple (Karisma Kapoor-Sunjay Kapur) seem to have reached financial settlement, and are working on the visitation formalities concerning their children. When Karisma Kapoor’s marriage with Abhishek Bachchan was called off, Karisma was devastated and married businessman Sunjay Kapur in a hurry. However, after the couple had two kids (Samaira and Kiaan Raj Kapoor), everyone thought that all was well with their marriage. However, that was not to be. What seemed to be a happy marriage has ended on a very bitter note.
Chitrangada Singh married Golfer Jyoti Singh but her filmi aspirations got her to Mumbai. Soon cracks began to surface in their relationship and the duo finally got separated in 2014.

Himesh Reshammiya divorces wife Komal after 22 years of marriage
There are many cinema fans who were not even aware that Himesh Reshammiya was married and has a son, until now. Himesh Reshammiya has now officially divorced his wife Komal after 22 long years of marriage.
Himesh is a big name in the film industry; he’s a leading singer and composer, and judge of several reality shows. However, he was never seen in public with his wife.
So it really came as a surprise to us that Himesh was getting divorced, and it’s being rumoured that Himesh’s affair with another actress has led to their separation.
“Komal and I have amicably decided to part ways. There is no problem whatsoever with this decision among us and our family as every member respects it. Yet, Komal is and will always remain a part of our family and I will always be a part of her family,” Himesh Reshammiya
“Himesh and I completely respect each other and are jointly going with this decision to part ways legally but mutual respect will always be there between us as I am a part of his family and will always be, and the same is with him towards my family. There are compatibility issues in our marriage. We are separate but we respect each other immensely. Nobody else should be dragged into this matter and nobody else is responsible for this. The reason for our marriage not working is only and only compatibility. Sonia is not responsible for this at all and our son Swaym and our family loves Sonia just like a family member,” Komal.
After almost a year of legal procedures, the Bombay High Court finally granted divorce to the couple.
The couple has a son together, named Swayam. As per reports, Komal will continue to live in the same building where Himesh resides.
Manisha Koirala–Samrat Dahal
