In a nation where love is highly dominated by religion, Nargis Dutt, the yesteryear heartthrob did not let that affect her choice when it came to love. She was a Muslim who fell in love with Sunil Dutt, who was a Hindu and her co-star in the movie Mother India. She quite fearlessly embraced Hinduism and even adopted a Hindu name, Nirmala Dutt. Their marriage surprised the post-partition divided nation. It was a surprise for their fans as well as they went public about their love only after they got married.
