A divorce leaves you high and dry. It hurts your heart, your mind and sometimes your deep pockets too. What we fail to understand is how a perfect couple who were once in love, end their marriage like a business deal. Finally, it does come down to money it seems. Read about your favourite couples and maybe speculate later, or just move on.
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh
Saif’s family never accepted Amrita due to their age difference. And despite trying hard, they gave up after thirteen years. The Nawab had to cough up quite an alimony and also give a huge amount in child support. They say half of his fortune got drained.
Sanjay Dutt and Rhea Pillai
According to the Bollywood insiders, Rhea was cheating on Sanjay with Leander Peas. And although for a change Sanjay Dutt was not the culprit, he suffered financially for the split. Rhea took a sea-facing apartment and a hugely expensive car as alimony. And that’s not all, he was also taking care of her bills.
Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan
Their love story was fairy tale material. But, sadly like all other good things this love story also came to an end in 2015. They say Hrithik cheated on her during the filming of Kites. Sussane took a whopping alimony of 400 crores from Hrithik. That must have hurt really bad!
Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapur
Karisma Kapoor was the reigning queen of Bollywood at one time and then as a shock to the entire nation, she went ahead and got married to a divorcee Sunjay Kapur. The lady just had to twist her little finger and any man would have come crawling. The couple have filed for divorce and are fighting a bitter battle over alimony and custody of the kids. According to latest reports, she is asking for ten lakhs a month as alimony. Ouch!
Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani
They were the perfect role model for so many of us. But at the start of 2016, we found out that they were calling it quits after sixteen long years. Adhuna has ‘just’ asked for their 10,000 square feet bungalow at Bandstand. More than enough we think!
