How far would you go for love?
Here we have a list of Bollywood celebs who converted themselves to Islam to get married to the love of their lives.
1. Mahesh Bhatt
A married Mahesh Bhatt fell in love with actor Soni Razdan who’s a Muslim. At that time he had no time to divorce Pooja Bhatt’s mother but also wanted to settle with Soni. As per the Hindu Marriage Act, bigamy or polygamy is prohibited. Out of love he did not give a second thought but turned himself into embracing Islam and got married to Soni in London.
2. Amrita Singh
Being twelve years older than Saif Ali Khan, Amrita was already being a nasty target by the media to put her into their controversial edits. Additionally, Saif being a Muslim had to follow his religious policies wherein he could not marry her because of being a Hindu. Amrita went ahead to changing herself to being a Muslim to settle with her love. Sadly, the marriage could not survive forever.
3. Mamta Kulkarni
Hers is a story to tell! Mamta’s then-boyfriend Vicky Goswami was caught under a secret laundering of drugs at Dubai Airport. He was put on trial and was sentenced to jail for 25 years. To reduce the prison time, Vicky went ahead and turned into a Muslim. After that when they finally decided to get married, Mamta had to convert herself to Islam.
Dharmendra fell in love with the Dreamgirl while he was married to the mother of Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. He had no time to waste and decided to marry Hema Malini. However, his wife did not want to give him a divorce. To save himself from getting charged against the Hindu Marriage Act, he embraced Islam and married Hema Malini. Interestingly, he has two families, even now!
5. Ayesha Takia
Her long time boyfriend, hotelier guy Farhan Azmi before getting married to her had to ask her to convert to Islam. Their genuine romance made her think no more and she went ahead and did the needful. Ayesha seems content in her life without the limelight. Together they have a daughter.
