Harshini |Sep 23, 2019

From Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Karisma Kapoor, before attaining their real happiness, these stars had a horrible past being victims of physical and mental abuse.

Domestic violence, is it a crime, an offence, or an exaggerated expression? Whatever your thoughts are on this, it is an actual thing that exists and seems to not have a tendency of stopping. It is the issue that can happen to anyone, and even the idolized celebrities may have to experience that horror, too.

Appearing that dreamy on-screen, their lives are not always in a rosy scenery. Movie stars, television actresses or beauty queens, some of them have been there and it left an unpleasant mark in their life.

For anyone unversed, here are a number of stars who have raised their voice to the mass about the time they had suffered from mental and physical abuse in their romantic affairs.

1. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Being the world’s top gorgeous woman, the 1994 Miss World and a talented actress, yet she was involved in a toxic relationship. She was an item with actor Salman Khan and the two were seen as the most good-looking couple. But what happened between them that created such a storm?

Their split story made lots and lots of headlines as Aishwarya mentioned after the breakup that she had to cope with Salman Khan’s alcoholism. Also, she was on the receiving end of the actor’s infidelity and abuses. They eventually parted ways when he indirectly admitted that he was unfaithful to her.

In 2000, parents of Aishwarya filed a complaint to police about Salman trying to stalk, threaten and even forcefully break into Aishwarya’s home.

The entire issue reached another level when in 2002, it was reported that Salman arrived at Chalte Chalte sets and furiously hit the actress. He even pushed Aishwarya on the ground and ruined the sets.

On another hand, while being questioned whether he had ever hit a woman, the Dabangg 3 actor replied, "If I hit a woman, she wouldn't have survived. It's not true that I hit a woman."

3. Zeenat Aman


In spite of doing incredibly well in acting, modeling and even being a beauty queen, it seemed that the lucky lady didn’t smile with Zeenat Aman in terms of relationship and married life. Back to the 80s, Zeenat’s extramarital link with Sanjay Khan did not end very well. Reportedly, Sanjay beat Zeenat before the eyes of his wife at hotel Taj.

He bashed her up too brutally at it left a permanent scar on the eye of Zeenat. Zeenat was in complete shock post the incident and the actress had to take anti-depressants injections thrice each day. One of Zeenat’s doctors once was quoted,

4. Karisma Kapoor

Karisma Kapoor is the star born in the Kapoors, the first Bombay celluloid family. She was also a victim of domestic violence and it still remains as a tragic memory to the actress. She got divorced with ex-spouse Sanjay Kapur and why they split was because he physically abused Karisma.


Although it was decided that Karisma was granted the children’s custody, the final decision came round was that Sunjay can have access to the kids occasionally.

5. Yukta Mookhey


Another former Miss World was involved in domestic violence. Yukta Mookhey turned in a hand-written application to the police of Mumbai, reporting against her spouse Prince Tuli.

The case was allegedly due to abuse and harassment. The police had looked into the case and done an inquiry but there was no registration of an FIR.
