Calling out ex-lovers for contributing to relationship problems is extremely prevalent in a field where avoiding ex-partners is impossible. Our Bollywood celebrities have dealt with everything from spilling tea in public to accusing their exes of abusing them.
Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty
Shilpa Shetty was left grieving over her fate and broken trust when Akshay ditched her and married Twinkle instead, despite the fact that she was deeply in love with him and had full intentions of marrying him. Shilpa Shetty opened up about her breakup and the awful experience she had because of Akshay Kumar in a no-holds-barred interview from back in 2000.
“Akshay Kumar used me and conveniently dropped me after he found someone else. The only person, I was upset with, was him. But I’m sure he’ll get it all back. It’s not easy to forget the past so soon, but I’m glad I’ve had the strength to move on. Today, he’s a forgotten chapter as far as I’m concerned. I will never work with him again. Professionally, things have never looked better.”
Jacqueline Fernandez and Sajid Khan
Even though this pair supposedly fell in love at first sight, they were purportedly on the verge of getting hitched. But it seems that Sajid Khan’s excessive possessiveness tore them apart. These remarks by the well-known director were made during an unpleasant split.
“While we broke up in May 2013, in reality right from December 2012, it started becoming sour. When you don’t have a woman in your life, you don’t have someone constantly nagging you, so you end up working better and are more focused. I went for a holiday with her for five days in the middle of making Himmatwala and felt so bad when the film didn’t do well. For Humshakals, I have not taken a single holiday.”
Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia
In 2005, a prominent actress and a prominent businessman began a storybook relationship that resulted in them both purchasing the IPL team Kings XI Punjab. Their happy times, however, were short-lived, as on June 13, 2014, Preity Zinta filed a complaint against Ness Wadia accusing him of molestation, abuse, and threats. She was quoted —
“He (Ness) intimidated me by saying he could make me disappear as I was a nobody and only an actress and he’s a powerful person… thisincident in Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium has left me shattered and fear for my life.”
In the FIR that she filed against him she said, “He came up to me at my seat and started screaming and abusing me in front of everyone… He used foul language, which was demeaning to my reputation and character.”
Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor
After three years of being inseparable, Kareena and Shahid split up while filming the cult classic Jab We Met. Shahid and Kareena stay away from one another despite being happily married to their respective partners and having their own children. Shahid Kapoor was quoted saying a number of times in the days leading up to their breakup when he was likely still feeling the repercussions of sadness.
“If my director wants me to work with a cow, or a buffalo, as an actor—I’m ready to do it.” (when asked if he would ever work with Kareena again!)
“I blame it on my being a good boyfriend. I was in a four-and-a-half year old relationship and was very committed. Now, I have learnt better. And I shall not be the most wonderful boyfriend.”
“My most successful film Jab We Met, came when Kareena and I had broken up. I can only see it from a practical point of view. And I feel that some choices didn’t work for me.”
Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan
Everyone is aware of the basic plot of this novel, yet these fire quotes are still worth mentioning. After keeping her relationship with Hrithik a secret for a very long time, Kangana revealed to a tabloid that he was her ex-boyfriend, which sparked the whole controversy.
She said,”Yes, many lame rumours are doing rounds, even a dumb ass can tell where these rumours are coming from. I don’t know why exes do silly things to get your attention. For me that chapter is over and I don’t dig graves.”
Naturally, Hrithik Roshan had to address her accusations without using any slurs, and he tweeted:
Kangana nearly broke down when discussing the accusations made by Hrithik Roshan and his father Rakesh Roshan to ruin her reputation and the torment she and her family had to endure as a result in her explosive interview with Rajeev Masand and on the show Aap Ki Adaalat.
