Continuing our series on  Bollywood's marriages and remarriages, we take a look at some more couples who went beyond a second attempt at seeking marital bliss.

Mahesh Bhatt was lucky with his second marriage to Soni Razdan, while Shekhar Kapoor, who gave us Elizabeth, Bandit Queen, Masoom and Mr India, got lucky the second time with singer-actress Suchitra Krishnamurthy. His first marriage with Medha ended in a divorce. Similarly, Bhajan Samrat Anup Jalota’s first marriage to Sonali (now married to Roopkumar Rathod) ended in a divorce, he found his soul mate in Shekhar Kapoor’s ex-wife Medha. Both the couples are living happily now and so is Sonali with Roopkumar Rathod. Boney Kapoor had to divorce Mona Kapoor to marry Sridevi for the second time.

While for some, the second marriage seems to be lucky, there are many men in the industry who have even tried eating the ladoo thrice, but with little success. The suave actor Kabir Bedi has failed thrice. First he got married to the bohemian Protima (Pooja Bedi’s mother) and after the divorce married American beautician Susan (Adam Bedi’s mother). The marriage was stable for three years. Soon Kabir was attracted to another beautiful and talented young lady, Nikki Bedi but the marriage didn’t last long and recently ended in a divorce.

The present generation stars like Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan seem to be treading the same path in their search for marital happiness. To each then his own, so here is wishing them happiness and good luck in their search.
