Bollywood films have depicted romances that cross all sorts of barriers, be it transcending caste, class, language and recently even sexual orientations. When it comes to their personal life romances, Bollywood celebs have let go of their inhibitions even off-screen as they married foreigners. Here’s taking a look at celebs who married foreigners.
#1 Shashi Kapoor
Shashi Kapoor had a fairytale romance and marriage, unlike some of his contemporaries. He fell in love with British theatre actress Jennifer Kendal when they met in Kolkata in 1956. He began touring with her troupe – and they got married two years later. She acted in a number of his films and passed away from colon cancer in 1984.
#2 Celina Jaitly
Celina Jaitly disappeared from Bollywood after her marriage and babies. The actress announced her engagement to Peter Haag, a Dubai-based Austrian businessman in 2011, and married him the same year. She is in a very happy marriage – and is now a mom to a pair of twins too. She recently gave birth to another set of twins but lost one of them as he was born with a serious heart defect.
#3 Kabir Bedi
Kabir Bedi has been married four times, and British fashion designer Susan Humphreys was his second. He was previously dating Parveen Babi after his first marriage broke down. Bedi and Humphreys have a son Adam Bedi who is a model and made his Bollywood debut with ‘Hello? Kaun Hai!’ However, she and Kabir ended their marriage and he married radio presenter Nikki.
#4 Milind Soman
Milind Soman had a famous relationship with fellow model Madhu Sapre for many years, but they never got married. He met his co-actress Mylene Jampanoi on the sets of ‘Valley of Flowers’ in 2006. She was half-French and half-Chinese, and both hit it off so well – they got married the same year, only to be divorced three years later.
# Preity Zinta
The bubble lass with dimpled cheeks silenced lovers, ex-lovers, and critics with her marriage to Gene Goodenough in 2016. Preity Zinta tied the knot with Gene in Los Angeles, after dating him for quite a while. The couple planned to auction their wedding photos for the purpose of charity. Preity did share her picture of her wearing a ‘Chooda’ in her wrist as a part of wedding celebrations.
#6 Lisa Ray
Lisa Ray is the eternal role-model for people battling with cancer. The actress tied the knot with Jason Dehni, a management consultant, in California, U.S.A. in the scenic Napa Valley which is a dream destination when it comes to weddings. Lisa wore an off-white georgette sari designed by Satya Paul highlighted with beige and traditional work which blended with shaded sequins on the border.
