Karan Singh Grover, Sanjay Dutt…celebs who married thrice


After two short-lived marriages, television star-turned-Bollywood actor Karan Singh Grover recently got married for the third time to the gorgeous Bipasha Basu.

He was first married to television actress (now fashion designer) Shraddha Nigam in December 2008, but they divorced within 10 months. Thereafter, Karan went on to marry his ‘Dil Mil Gaye’ co-star Jennifer Winget in 2012, but the couple separated after two years. Their divorce came through only earlier this year, following which he tied the knot with the Bong beauty.   

Karan is not an isolated case. Although there are many celebrity couples who have made their love and marriage last, some go on seeking love for second and third time as well, or even more. Let’s check out some other Bollywood personalities who married thrice.

Sanjay Dutt: The ‘Munnabhai’ of Bollywood is now happily settled with his wife Manyata and their adorable twins Shahraan and Iqra. But Sanjay Dutt was married twice before he tied the knot with Manyata in 2008. The actor lost his first wife Richa Sharma to brain tumour in 1996. He has a daughter with her, who lives in the US with her maternal grandparents. Sanjay then married model Rhea Pillai in 1998, but they divorced in 2005.     

Siddharth Roy Kapur: The CEO of UTV Motion Pictures had married twice before tying the knot with actress Vidya Balan in 2012. The brother of Bollywood actors Aditya Roy Kapur and Kunal Roy Kapur was first married to his childhood sweetheart. His second wife was a television producer. Both his marriages ended in divorce. Siddharth and Vidya’s love blossomed while the actress was working for UTV production ‘No One Killed Jessica’. After dating for two years the duo got married in a ceremony, which was a mix of both Tamilian and Punjabi rituals.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra: Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra was also married twice before he got hitched to his current wife film critic Anupama Chopra. The producer of films like ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘PK’ first married Renu Saluja, a film editor.

His second marriage in 2001 was to another divorcee, Dubai-based Arab Sabah Galadari, but she left him after one and half year. Sabah returned to Adan’s life again and they remarried in 2008, but the marriage lasted for only a year and the couple divorced again.
