5 Bollywood celebrities who tied the knot with a woman without divorcing the first wife!
1. Mahesh Bhatt
Mahesh Bhatt fell in love when he was young at school with a girl Lorraine Bright. The couple tied the knot when they were only 20-year old and they had a daughter, Pooja Bhatt at the age of 21. Mahesh Bhatt's greatest success and one of the most appreciated movies, Aashiqui, is based on his relationship with Lorraine. Not a long time after, their relationship ended because of his extramarital affair with actress Parveen Babi - that didn't last long either - and those two went their own ways without divorcing each other.
That time, he met Soni Razdan, who was one of the actors playing in the well-known film, Saraansh. The couple fell in love and wanted to get married when Soni’s father asked him to cut all ties with his first wife Kiran. And this is what Mahesh answered: "When I met Soni Razdan, it was like a replay in my life. Soni's father asked me how I planned to end my ties with Kiran and I said, a "with permanence''. But I would not divorce Kiran."
