Fidelity plays a crucial role in determining the success of every married relationship. Even though adultery is not illegal in India, extramarital affairs are still considered a sin in India due to the dominance of religions. Bollywood is one industry in India where extramarital affairs are quite common. Despite a handful of celebrities who have always maintained a safe distance from gossips, several Bollywood actors have been under the scanner of paparazzi lens for alleged extramarital affairs, at least once in their lifetime.
International Business Times, India edition presents you with a list of five Bollywood celebrities who found romance in women other than their wives.
Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha
Amitabh Bachchan, the Big B of Bollywood is leading a happily married life with Jaya Bachchan. However, in his young days, he had a brewing relationship with dazzling starlet Rekha. Even though the love story remains a mystery for many, Jaya Bachchan was pretty aware of the developments between the two, and she did not let her husband go from her life. Even today, Amitabh Bachchan used to become uncomfortable in Rekha’s presence, and it clearly hints at the fact that there was something between the two.
Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra
Shah Rukh Khan is widely considered the most loyal husband in B-town. He married Gouri in 1991, and even after 30 years, their marital relationship is progressing steadily.
