We are habitual of watching happy endings in our Bollywood movies with the hero and heroine getting married and living happily ever after. However, it is not the same when we talk about reality.
Many celebrities have often hinted that it’s tough to have a stable personal life when you work in the movie business, and when your life is constantly being talked about in the media. That is why celebrity divorces have become common these days. But having your personal life and divorce become people’s breakfast table conversation isn’t the only price these celebs have to pay. They literally have to pay a huge chunk!
Check out these 7 most expensive divorces of B-Town which will shock you!
Hrithik Roshan and Sussane Khan
People were left terribly shocked when the duo announced their separation last year, after 14 years of being married. Nevertheless, theirs has got to be one of the most expensive divorces in Bollywood. Sussane had demanded a whopping Rs 400 crore in alimony and Hrithik ended up paying Rs. 380 crores to her in a settlement!
Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapoor
Theirs has been one jinxed marriage since the very beginning. They have always been on an on-off mode constantly as far as their relationship is concerned, and the couple finally filed for a divorce last year. If reports are to be believed, their divorce is about to get finalised by June this year, and Karisma has apparently demanded Rs. 7 crore as alimony.
Sanjay Dutt and Rhea Pillai
Even though Rhea was Sanjay’s second, the two were much in love before Rhea went ahead and left him for tennis player Leander Paes. Reportedly, Sanjay was footing in her shopping and mobile phone bills till the time the official divorce was finalised, even though during that time she had a baby with Leander Paes! Not only that, Sanjay also ended up paying Rs 8 crore as alimony and an expensive car to Rhea.
Rhea Pillai and Leander Paes
Well, yeah! They also ended up getting divorced, funny right! In fact, the two of them had a much ugly divorce, with both of them making accusations at each other in front of the media. Paes even accused Pillai of cheating on him with a younger cricketer. Yet, Pillai demanded Rs. 4 lakh from him as monthly maintenance, Rs 3 lakh for herself and Rs. 90,000 for their daughter who studies in one of the most expensive schools in Mumbai.
Aditya Chopra and Payal Khanna
While most us know that Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra are happily married now, not many know of his first wife and childhood sweetheart Payal Khanna. Even though there were much speculations, their divorce details were kept under wraps. Yet, the alimony amount is believed to be so huge that it’s considered to be one of the most expensive divorces in the history of Bollywood.
Prabhudeva and Ramlath
Not many know, but the multitalented actor-dancer-director, Prabhudeva is also a divorcee. He divorced his wife Ramlath in 2011, but not without paying a hefty amount as alimony. She not only received property worth of Rs. 20-25 crores, which included villas, but also got Rs. 10 lakh as one time alimony and two expensive cars!
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh
So the two had a fairytale wedding, when Saif decided to marry a much elder Amrita despite his family’s opposition, and everyone else’s shock. Sadly, the couple parted ways after 13 years of being married. And even though the exact amount of Amrita’s alimony has never been disclosed, it’s said that apparently Saif had to pay half his fortune to Amrita as alimony and also paid for child support.
Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora
Though it was never confirmed by any source or by Arbaaz and Malaika themselves, it is said that Malaika demanded an alimony of Rs. 10-15 crores from Arbaaz post their divorce. Whether this was granted by the court or provided by Arbaaz is unconfirmed.
Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta
Another B-Town celeb standing in this queue is our own Mr. Perfectionist. Aamir had to reportedly pay alimony of Rs. 50 crores to his first wife Reena at the time of their divorce. Well, that’s a huge amount I must say!
Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani
Farhan and Adhuna got divorced in 2017. Their marriage lasted 16 years before they decided to part ways. After the divorce, Adhuna expressed her desire to keep their Mumbai residence (a sprawling 10,000 square feet bungalow in Bandstand) for herself. Alongside this, Farhan is also contributing a major amount in the security and upbringing of their daughters.
Well, now we know one thing for sure. Love does come at a cost, and sometimes a heavy one!
