Break-ups are often difficult to deal with, especially when you are a celebrity and the whole world is looking for a masala story. While many refrain from sharing their stories of break-up, some are not afraid to wash their dirty linen in public.
In this post, the team of Funniest Indian brings for you 7 Bollywood couples who ended their relationship on a bad note and spilled the beans about their exes in public.
1- Shahid Kapoor & Kareena Kapoor
After breaking up with Bebo, Shahid shared his painful experience and said, “I blame it on my being a good boyfriend. I was in a four-and-a-half-year-old relationship and very committed. Now, I have learnt better. And I shall not be the most wonderful boyfriend. My most successful film Jab We Met came when Kareena and I had broken up. I can only see it from a practical point of view. And I feel that some choices didn’t work for me.”
2- Bipasha Basu & John Abraham
It didn’t end well for the once love-buds and Bipasha even confessed that she regrets dating John Abraham. In fact, in of her interviews when she was asked about John she said, “John who? I don’t know this person.”
3- Shilpa Shetty & Akshay Kumar
Shilpa had bitter words for Akshay when they broke up and shared her pain in an interview. She said,
“Akshay Kumar used me and conveniently dropped me after he found someone else. The only person, I was upset with, was him. But I’m sure he’ll get it all back. It’s not easy to forget the past so soon, but I’m glad I’ve had the strength to move on. Today, he’s a forgotten chapter as far as I’m concerned. I will never work with him again. Professionally, things have never looked better.”
4- Salman Khan & Aishwarya Rai
Once touted as the most beautiful couple in Bollywood, the duo broke after Aishwarya couldn’t bear with Bhaijaan anymore. Post their break-up, she revealed, “After we broke up, he would call me and talk rubbish. He also suspected me of having affairs with my co-stars. I was linked-up with everyone, from Abhishek Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan.
“There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks. And I would go to work as if nothing had happened. I stood by him enduring his alcoholic misbehavior in its worst phases and in turn, I was at the receiving end of his abuse (verbal, physical and emotional), infidelity and indignity. That is why like any other self-respecting woman, I ended my relationship with him.”
5- Vivek Oberoi & Aishwarya Rai
Vivek got close to Aishwarya post her break-up with Salman, but Aishwarya soon parted ways with Vivek citing his ‘Immaturity’ as the main reason.
6- Saif Ali Khan & Amrita Singh
The nawab of Pataudi broke his 13 year-long marriage with Amrita Singh after irreconcilable differences arose between the couple. Saif later said in an interview, “It isn’t nice to be constantly reminded of how worthless you are and to have taunts, jeers, and abuses thrown at your mother and sister all the time.
I’ve gone through all of it. It’s also nice to be married to someone who’s fun, beautiful and non-judgemental. All three things. It’s better to have a hot and sexy wife. Never have room for regret and never say, ‘Oh, I wish I was married to a beautiful girl.”
7- Sajid Khan & Jacqueline Fernandez
Sajid Shared his bitter story after breaking up with Jacqueline and said,
“While we broke up in May 2013, in reality, right from December 2012 it started becoming sour. When you don’t have a woman in your life, you don’t have someone constantly nagging you, so you end up working better and are more focused. I went for a holiday with her for five days in the middle of making Himmatwala and felt so bad when the film didn’t do well. For Humshakals, I did not take a single holiday.”
One more similar scenario is recently brewing in the industry, with Kangana Ranaut accusing Hrithik Roshan of dumping her and mentally harassing her. The verdict is still not out on their controversy.
