From 'Gehraiyaan' Fame, Deepika Padukone To Ananya Panday, Actresses Whose Partners Cheated Them

Directed by Shakun Batra, Gehraiyaan has become the talk of the town for some time now. Ever since the film was released on February 11, 2022, it has garnered a lot of appreciation from the audience. Social media is flooded with appreciation posts praising the actors, Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa for their stellar performances in the film. Gehraiyaan is a story about the complexities in human relationships, and it focuses on love, friendship, and betrayal.

While Bollywood films make us believe in fairytale love and happy endings, celebrities do not always have 'happily ever after' in real life. The celebs have their own share of hardships and heartbreaks. No matter how much their fans root for them, sometimes, a relationship is not just meant to be. Talking about relationships and heartbreaks, over time, we have seen many B-town couples, who parted ways with each other after feeling betrayed. So, without further ado, let's have a look at some of the B-Town actresses, who got cheated by their partners.

#1. Deepika Padukone


Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor had made a dreamy pair. The couple had met on the sets of their film, Bachna Ae Haseeno, and had fallen in love in no time. Their fans had wanted the couple to turn into an endgame, and reports were even rife that Deepika and Ranbir would tie the knot. However, things had turned upside down when Ranbir had reportedly turned affectionate towards Katrina Kaif on the sets of their film, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. So, the Rockstar actor had left Deepika mid-way, and thus they had ended in a bitter breakup. 

Deepika Padukone had once opened up about Ranbir Kapoor and his cheating habits. In an interview with Verve Magazine, the actress had told that she had been cheated in the past and had added:

“For me, sex is not just about physicality; there are emotions involved. I have never cheated or strayed when I’m in a relationship. If I’m going to be fooling around, why would I be in a relationship? It’s better to be single and have fun. But not everyone thinks like that. Maybe that’s why I’ve been hurt in the past. The first time he cheated on me, I thought there was something wrong with the relationship, or me. But when someone makes a habit of it, you know the problem lies with him.”

#2. Ananya Panday


Daughter of the Bollywood actor, Chunky Panday, Ananya Panday, rules the hearts of millions and enjoys a huge fanbase on her social media platforms. Ananya has already etched a special place in everyone's hearts with only a couple of films. She has made her mark in B-town with her charming presence, acting spree, million-dollar smile, and humble personality. But, her personal life was not a bed of roses, and she had been cheated by her boyfriends at a young age.

In an interview with MissMalini, Ananya said that she has been through heartbreak and had talked about her ‘dramatic’ break-ups in school. Ananya had said:

“I am really young and I have been through heartbreak but obviously not… Like in school, when people cheat and you slap them, it’s very dramatic that way. All that has happened but it’s obviously not as serious. The emotions and stakes were obviously not so high but I kind of had to go in much deeper and face some uncomfortable truths."

#3. Neelam Kothari

Govinda had first met Neelam Kothari during the shooting of his debut film, Ilzaam in the year 1986. Soon, fans heaped praises for Neelam and Govinda's on-screen chemistry. Together the duo had worked together in 14 hit films. While fans were going gaga over this on-screen couple, rumours were rife that Govinda and Neelam had fallen madly in love with each other. In the meantime, Govinda's mother had got him officially married to his childhood friend, Sunita Ahuja, in a small ceremony at the mandir. But, he hadn't disclosed his marriage publicly as he had felt that it would affect his career. Even Neelam didn't know about it. She had got to know only after a year, and it had left her shattered. 

Govinda was so much in love with Neelam, that he had even taken the step of breaking his engagement with Sunita. Govinda had mentioned the instance when he had broken off his engagement with Sunita because she had said something about Neelam during one of their fights. Govinda had described:

"After I started getting busier, my relationship with Sunita went through a change. She began feeling insecure and jealous. And I was of no help. She would nag me and I would lose my temper. We had constant fights. In one of those fights, Sunita said something about Neelam, and I lost my head and called it quits. I asked Sunita to leave me. I broke off my engagement with her. And had Sunita not called me after five days and coaxed me into it again, I would probably have married Neelam."

Lesser known facts about Raveena Tandon

Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon’s love affair isn’t something that's hidden from the Bollywood fanatics. Back in the 90s, Akshay and Raveena were often spotted hanging out with each other, and they had decided to make their on-screen love a real one. Soon the news of their intimate secret engagement broke on the internet, but later, things took an ugly turn in their paradise and they had called off their relationship. Given the ‘Casanova’ image of Akshay, a time came in their relationship when he had cheated on her with Shilpa Shetty.

In 2002, Raveena Tandon had appeared in the popular chat show, Rendezvous with Simi Garewal, and had made a secret revelation of her life. When the host, Simi Garewal had asked her why she had left films for two years and enquired if it was in hope of getting married, Raveena had said: 

“It was a voluntary decision. I was engaged to somebody I knew. This is what I wanted, to lead a very normal life. I quit in advance before marriage because we did think that when there will be last day of my shoot, we will go ahead and get married. Once I re-started my career, he again said that leave it and we will go ahead with the wedding. But, then I told him that once I chose you over my career, but now I will choose my career over you."

#5. Shilpa Shetty

Well, not just Raveena, but actress, Shilpa Shetty Kundra also had a brief affair with Akshay Kumar. Akshay, Raveena and Shilpa’s love triangle had created quite a hullabaloo in the 90s. At that time, there were reports that Akshay was also dating Shilpa Shetty along with Raveena. And reportedly, that had become the reason for Raveena’s breakup with Akshay as she was fed up with his flings and affairs. However, after some time, Akshay had later cheated on Shilpa too, with his now-wife, Twinkle Khanna. 

Later, at a reality show, Super Dancer Chapter 2, both Shilpa and Raveena had taken a fun dig at their past. As reported by Mumbai Mirror, Raveena and Shilpa were giggling over their ‘common mistake’. A source had informed the tabloid:

“When Raveena mentioned that she has made a lot of mistakes in life, Shilpa winked, ‘Some of the mistakes were common,’ sending them into peals of laughter. At another point, everyone was discussing Golmaal when Raveena clapped back, ‘Everyone does golmaal in life, Shilpa and I have done it too. You know what I mean, right?”

Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh had met on the sets of Rahul Rawail’s film, and he had decided to ask her out for dinner a couple of days later. On their first dinner date, Saif had a good time with Amrita, and the night had ended with a kiss. It was in 1991 when they had tied the knot, and later, were blessed with two kids, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan. Meanwhile, Saif had got into a relationship with an Italian model named Rosa Catalano and had lost his heart to her. So, after13 years of marital bliss, Saif and Amrita had mutually decided to end their marriage and were granted the divorce in 2004. 

According to a report in Cosmopolitan, Rosa and Saif had met in Kenya. Their one-off meeting had turned into a love-filled romance, and Rosa had come to India. It was only after she had come to India that she had found out that Saif had been previously married and was a father to two children. She had even developed a great bond with Saif's kids, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan. But Saif and Rosa's romance was short-lived.

Breakups are difficult to handle, and we just hope that no one has to deal with it ever. However, bygones are bygones, and now, these actresses have moved on in their lives, and are living their best lives with their loved ones.
