Vaishnavi Gavankar |Jun 25, 2019

Sanjay Kapoor had accused Karisma of marrying him as a rebound post her breakup with the Bachchan's and also he mentioned that it was a clinical move from the actress to marry him because of the wealth he possesses.

Karisma Kapoor has turned 45 today. Her life is nothing less than a roller coaster ride with so many ups and downs. A couple of years back, her decade-year-old marriage was put to rest leaving the entire Bollywood industry with a lot of speculation about the reason behind it. Today we are here with a clear analysis of the actor's troubled marriage and the probable reason why it ended the way it did.

Engagement with Abhishek Bachchan and then backing out from it

In a recent interview, when Jaya Bachchan was asked about why did the Kapoor and Bachchan families call off the engagement between Abhishek and Karisma, all she could say was that it was neither any of the family's fault that it ended the way it did.

Bachchan and Kapoor's families had been associated with each other even before Karisma and Abhishek fell in love. Very fewer people know that Amitabh Bachchan's daughter Shweta Bachchan is married to Raj Kapoor's grandson Nikhil Nanda. And apparently it was during their wedding both Abhishek and Karisma met and fell in love with each other.

This was also the period when Amitabh Bachchan had started fading out from the Bollywood. But convinced by Abhishek and Karisma's relationship the families decided to take the extra step and went on to announce the engagement of the couple in Amitabh Bachchan's 60th birthday celebration.

But soon the news came out that their engagement has been called off and it was Abhishek Bachchan's decision to do so (as said in the aforementioned interview of Jaya Bachchan). Now there are many reasons surrounding the Abhishek's decision but one of the most prominent ones is that during that period (15 years ago) Abhishek was not a renowned name in the industry. And Amitabh's career was also reaching a state of stalemate.

While on the other hand, Karisma had a lot of projects under her name and the actress had many coveted awards for her acting prowess. Seeing this, Karisma Kapoor's mother Babita had asked for a prenup prior to the marriage and she had asked for the exact details of the amount of wealth that Amitabh Bachchan was supposed to give his son. This, however, was not acceptable by Abhishek and Amitabh Bachchan who later on went to call off the marriage.

Troubled Marriage with Sanjay Kapoor

Within a few months of their breakup, in 2003 Karisma went on to marry a famous Delhi based businessman Sanjay Kapoor.

It came as a surprise to her fans and the media when Karisma decided to tie the knot with Sanjay KapoorKarisma and Sanjay Kapoor's marriage, of course, has been the talk of the town at that time. Both the couples went through a rough patch before the wedding of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan.

In fact, the couples had resolved their differences and that was when their son was born in 2010. The couple was later actively involved in Saif and Kareena's wedding too. But things started to get more tough for Karisma and Sanjay Kapoor, and eventually, they decided to take a break from the marriage and get a divorce.

The marriage took such a rough turn that Karisma registered a case of domestic violence and harassment against both Sanjay Kapoor and his mother. Sanjay, on the other hand, accused that Karisma had agreed to the marriage just because he is rich and her motive all along was to gain financial benefits from him.

Sanjay had accused the actress of marrying him as a rebound post her breakup with the Bachchan's and also he mentioned that it was a clinical move from the actress to marry him because of the wealth he possesses. The businessman stated that Karisma denied his sick father's wish to see his kids and that the actress used them as a mere pawn just to claim more money from the Kapoor family.

Finally, in 2014 the couples filed a mutual consent in the court pleading for a divorce and a year later, over some financial disputes Karisma withdrew her consent in 2015. It was then when the businessman had alleged that he had started receiving threat calls from the underworld and requested to change the hearings from Mumbai to Delhi.

A year later in 2016, in the personal hearing, the Supreme Court of India asked Sanjay and Karisma to settle the differences and come to a mutual agreement regarding the divorce. And thus, a 13 year long volatile and rough marriage came to an end with a consent that a house owned by Sanjay Kapoor will have to be transferred under Karisma's name and a bond worth of 14 Crore will be used to pay his kids maintenance and expenses.

As well as all the jewelry that she had been gifted during her marriage will also be returned to her. And in return, Karisma had agreed to withdraw all the cases against him and his mother. The Apex court also allowed a set of days where the father can meet his kids and this sums to a total of two to three months in a year.

Sanjay Kapoor later went on to marry the Indian American businesswoman Priya Sachdev in a very close and personal affair. The couple had a baby boy in 2018. While on the other hand Karisma Kapoor was linked with businessman Sandeep Toshniwal.

Sandeep Toshniwal is CEO of Mumbai based pharmaceutical company and there were rumors that the alleged couple had parted their ways as Karisma Kapoor was not interested in getting remarried again and that she wants to focus on her kids more than anything else in her life.

Karisma Kapoor returned to acting

On the work front, Karisma Kapoor had finished shooting for her digital debut Mentalhood. The series is about parenting and motherhood and the web series is supposed to portrait all the ups and downs and happiness and sadness of mother. The show is produced by Ekta Kapoor's Alt Balaji.

The actress returned to acting after 7 months and it would be interesting to see what roles she would sign for Bollywood too. With veteran actress Sridevi passing away there has been a void created for a person who can take up some mature and hitting roles. And if we go as per the speculations Karisma Kapoor is the perfect person as an artist to fill that gap.
