The wedding season is upon us and many celeb couples are waiting in line to bolt down the aisle. While some like Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are first-timers, Farhan Akhtar will give love a second try with ladylove Shibani Dandekar. The father of two reportedly has extravagant plans for the big day that will have daughters Shakya and Akira as part of the festivities. However, not all Bollywood star kids have been so accepting of their parent’s second marriage. Take a look…
1. Sunny Deol
Dharmendra and Hema Malini’s love story is the stuff of Bollywood romance novels, but the prequel to this is far from dreamy. Dharmendra was at the time, married to Prakash Kaur with whom he fathered 4 children. When he decided to marry Hema, son Sunny Deol was reportedly “furious” and allegedly even fought with the actress for ‘taking away his father’. Kaur, in her interviews even admitted that her children were shocked with Dharmendra’s second marriage, and rubbished rumours of her son’s tiff with Hema.
2. Salman Khan
Salman Khan always makes hearts melt when he shares photos with his mom Salma and Helen. But back in the ’90s, the star admitted in an interview that he and his four siblings weren’t too happy about father Salim Khan’s second marriage. Salman told Filmfare, “I’m a mama’s boy. I can’t bear to see her unhappy. She was very hurt when my father married again; I’d hate it when she’d wait until he came home.”
“Then, gradually, mom started accepting it. Dad explained to us that he still loved mom and that he’ll always be around. I was about 10 at that time and it took us quite some time to really accept Helen aunty. Today she’s a part of our family. Our whole family is like a closed fist,” he concluded.
3. Arjun Kapoor
Arjun Kapoor made it very clear that he “was not okay” with father Boney Kapoor’s decision to leave Mona Shourie and marry Sridevi. The father-son duo shared a strained relationship that was mended only recently. In a recent interview, the actor not only admitted that he didn’t like what happened with his family after Boney’s second marriage, but said he understood why his father fell in love with the actress. He also stated that had it not been for his bond with Janhvi and Khushi, he would have ‘resented many things’ and might have not reconnected with his father.
