Tennis star Sania Mirza got engaged to her childhood sweetheart Mohammed Sohrab but soon parted ways with him. Although, incompatibility is given as a reason for their split, rumours suggested Sania's closeness to Mahesh or Sohrab's previous marriage controversy may have caused the rift. Marital bliss came Sania's way when she tied the knot with Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik.
Pakistani actress Veena Mallik had a much publicised break up with tainted Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Asif. She accused Asif of harassing her and being linked with Indian bookies.

After Sam Mendes directed his wife Kate Winslet in Revolutionary Road opposite her Titanic co-star Leonardo Di Caprio, the couple reportedly decided to end their seven year marriage.

The actress has a daughter from her first marriage to assistant director Jim Threapleton and a son with Mendes.
Life altering 2010
Divorce between The Blind Side actor Sandra Bullock and America TV personality Jesse James had shocked everyone.
