When it comes to relationships in Bollywood, we had better respect their decisions and ask no more. Strange as it may sound, these Bollywood couples have announced their separation but never divorced.

Divorce or not divorce, that question might frequently pop up in one’s mind whenever a conflict arises during their marriage. However, the bond is so complicated sometimes that you don’t want to end the relationship with your spouse but truly want a more independent life. That’s when the term estrangement is introduced, and these Bollywood couples found it perfectly fit with their situations.

Do you recognize who's included in this separate but not divorced photo?

Here are some Bollywood marriages that end up in separation but not an official divorce. See who makes you most surprised!

Randhir Kapoor and Babita Kapoor

If suddenly you forget who is Randhir Kapoor and Babita, they are parents of two beautiful Bollywood divas Karishma and Kareena Kapoor. They are also former Indian actors during the Golden Age of the Hindi film industry.

Randhir Kapoor married Babita Kapoor in November 1971. This was their first and only marriage till date. However, Randhir and Babita had lived in separate homes for some years before reuniting in 2007. There were rumours that they continued living separately after that. In fact, they were still legal spouses of each other and didn’t have intention to file a divorce during all those years of estrangement though.

In an interview, Randhir Kapoor shared that he and Babita didn’t want to get married again, so there’s no reason for a divorce. They lived in separate homes just because Babita found he was a terrible man who drank and came home late at night, which she couldn’t accept.

Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia

Dimple Kapadia got married to Rajesh Khanna when she was only 15 years old in 1973. She hadn’t had her debut in the film industry then. Meanwhile, Rajesh Khanna was already a 30-year-old Bollywood superstar. They were one of the most controversial Bollywood couples at the time.

Six months after their marriage, Dimple Kapadia had her first film Bobby released. However, she soon retired from acting to fully take care of the family. It’s not until later that the actress revealed that her husband had forbidden her career after the wedding.

Nearly a decade suffering from an incompatible marriage, Dimple Kapadia separated from Rajesh Khan, partly due to his infidelity. She took her two daughters Twinkle Khanna and Rinkle Khanna to her parents’ house in 1982. However, she never filed a divorce with Rajesh who died in 2012.

When being asked about her intention of a second marriage, Dimple Kapadia said she was happy and content with her life then. To her, “once was more than enough.”

Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha

As you may not know, Dia Mirza rose to fame after winning second runner-up at the beauty pageant Femina Miss India 2000, one year before she had her debut Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein.

Sahil Sangha is a film producer and Dia’s business partner. The two got married in October 2014, being one of the most adored Bollywood couples in the tinsel town then.

Only 5 years after their wedding, Dia and Sahil announced their separation.

However, time flies and people change. Dia Mirza announced their separation in August 2019. The two haven’t divorced yet. Explaining for her decision, Dia said she derived the strength from her own parents who went in separate ways when she was only four and a half years old.
