Divorces and separations are heart-wrenching. They don’t just affect you ‘mentally’, but ‘financially’ as well. Mentally-because you are supposed to let go off all the precious memories and emotions. Financially-because you end up paying a hefty sum as alimony to your partner.
Well, just like us, some of our Bollywood celebrities have also experienced this phase and had to pay a heavy alimony to their partners. And you’ll be surprised to know that one of them had to pay a whopping sum of 380 crores as alimony amount.
If you wish to know who the actor was, scroll down and take a look.
Here is a list of some of the most expensive celebrity divorces in Bollywood:
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh went ahead to put an end to their 13-year-long marriage in 2004. If rumours are to be believed, it is said that it was Amrita’s ill-treatment and bad behaviour towards Saif and his family members that led to the separation of the two. After their split, the ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ actor had to pay a heavy amount for the alimony. In an interview with a leading daily, the actor had said, “I’m supposed to give Amrita Rs 5 crore, of which I’ve already given her approximately Rs 2.5 crore. Also, I’m paying Rs 1 lakh per month until my son becomes 18. I’m not Shah Rukh Khan. I don’t have that kind of money. I’ve promised her I’ll pay up the rest of the money, and I will, even if I’ve to slog till I drop dead.”
Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapur
The Bollywood diva, Karisma Kapoor has not been lucky when it comes to relationships. After her engagement with Abhishek Bachchan was called off, the actress got married to a Delhi-based businessman, Sunjay Kapur. But their marriage couldn’t last for too long because of Sunjay’s disloyal ways. So, the duo filed for a divorce in 2014 and officially got separated in May 2016. As per reports, it was told that the actress got Rs 7 crore as alimony from Sunjay. Other than that, the expenses of their kids, Samaira and Kian, are also borne by their father.
Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan
It came as a big shock to all of us when the power couple of the Bollywood industry, Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan parted their ways after being in a marriage for 14 long years. The two ended in a divorce when Sussanne announced their split in 2014. When they got separated, it was rumoured that Sussanne demanded a whopping sum of 400 crores as the alimony. While Hrithik completely rubbished all these reports and called them fake, rumours were rife that the actor paid her 380 crores as alimony.
Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani
Another celeb couple, Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani parted their ways after staying together for 15 long years. The two filed for a divorce in October 2016 on mutual consent and were granted it in April 2017. As per reports, the custody of their daughters Shakya and Akira was given to Adhun while Farhan was given the access to his kids whenever he wants. The amount paid to Adhun as alimony was not disclosed in open, but it was told that she demanded their 10,000 sq ft bungalow, Vipassana, located in Bandra and investments in the name of their daughters.
Malaika Arora Khan and Arbaaz Khan
Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan ended their 18-year-long marriage in May 2017 on mutual consent. It was being speculated that the two might reunite as they were often spotted together at various events and gatherings, but later it was revealed that the two were keeping this friendly relation only so that their divorce doesn’t impact their connection with their son. As per reports, it was told that the ‘Chaiya Chaiya’ girl had demanded a stupendous sum of 10-15 crores as alimony and Arbaaz agreed to pay her the settlement amount, but over a certain period of time.
