Love Triangles of Bollywood

Whether love triangles are ethical or not is of little consequence from the point of view of people who thrive on gossip. And for the general public, love triangles will always be of interest but there are other more serious aspects attached. Love triangles often lead to heart break, creating emotional and other problems for all the parties who form the triangle. But no matter which way you look at them, the reality remains that love triangles cannot be wished away.

Love triangles have been a part of the history of romance – both on an off the screen — for countless years. Bollywood has witnessed some memorable love triangles which have, naturally, provided a lot of grist to rumour mills. Some people have described Bollywood’s real life love triangles as ‘better entertainment than fictionalised love triangles’. Bollywood superstars too have formed part of love triangles, and some of these have become the most talked about love triangles of Bollywood.
The most high profile, rumoured love triangle was between Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha and Jaya Bhaduri. The ‘Silsila’ which began decades ago still continues to set tongues wagging. Amitabh got married to Jaya Bhaduri in 1973, but his special relationship with Rekha became very apparent to many after the release of their film ‘Silsila’ in 1981. Another love triangle which became a major talking point was that of Raj Kapoor, Nargis and Sunil Dutt. Nargis it seems was very attracted to Raj Kapoor and the two had wanted to marry even though Raj Kapoor was already married to Krishna Kapoor. The iconic song “Pyaar Hua Ikraar Hua Hai” is still a mirror of their real-life love. However, this love triangle came to naught very soon and Nargis got married to Sunil Dutt.

The other well known love triangle was that of Guru Dutt, Waheeda Rehman and Geeta Roy. Guru Dutt was already married to singer Geeta Roy and they had a happy relationship. But problems started once Guru Dutt brought Geeta Roy in to films. Things got worse and the once happily married couple parted ways and plummeted to even lower depths when both became addicted to alcohol. Guru Dutt died in 1964 while Geeta Roy died in 1972. The love triangle of Kishore Kumar, Yogita Bali and Mithun Chakraborty also created quite a stir. Yogita Bali was married to Kishore Kumar, but things got problematic when Yogita Bali fell in love with Mithun Chakraborty on the set of his film ‘Khwab’. Yogita Bali divorced Kishore Kumar to marry Mithun Chakraborty. A love triangle which attracted considerable attention recently was of Akshay Kumar, Shilpa Shetty and Twinkle Khanna. There was a lot of speculation that Shilpa Shetty and Akshay Kumar were dating each other. It was confirmed when Shilpa Shetty accepted the fact in the media. Both were said to have had a good relation before news came that Akshay Kumar was dating Twinkle Khanna. Akshay Kumar got married to Twinkle Khanna and parted ways with Shilpa Shetty.
