When Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu looked like they had the perfect marriage, out came his marriage with Asma.

Rekha got into a heady alliance with Sunjay Dutt (then referred to as her toyboy) after she was disallowed to meet Amitabh Bachchan.

Kamalahasan and Sarika were in love, but not public about it for some time. But Sarika got pregnant out of wedlock. Of course, Vani Ganapathy, his wedded wife, raised an uproar and went public. But Sarika went ahead and gave birth to her love child. Later they got married and have recently split.

Rajesh Khanna, the 30+ Superstar was into a relationship with Anju Mahendru when he announced his runaway marriage to a girl half his age, the 16-year-old Dimple Kapadia. Dimple at that time was romantically involved with Rishi Kapoor. The marriage was a disaster and the Superstar moved on to Tina Munim. Dimple left with her two daughters and made a dramatic comeback with Sagar opposite Rishi again. Later she was also involved deeply with Sunny Deol. As for Rajesh and Tina, their love could be measured by the fact that they would even share their toothbrush and were the first ones to start 'living together'. Later, Tina married Anil Ambani.

J'accuse!

Boney-Sridevi

The latest was, of course, Preeti Jain who accused Madhur Bhandarkar for 'raping' her for five yeard. She alleged that he had promised to cast her in his film. Though it created quite a sensation and nightmarish time for Madhur it fizzled out.

A huge ruckus was created by Vivek Oberoi when he called a press conferance to tell the world that Salman, blinded by his 'love' for Aishwarya had called him up 41 times in the middle of the night.
