Despite being one of the most beautiful and successful actors of her generation in Bollywood, Karisma Kapoor’s personal life was filled with adversity, at least until her marriage to Suraj Kapur dissolved, followed by an unpleasant legal battle over custody of their children.
Karisma surely has been shining bright on the professional front. However, the Biwi No.1 star was once “auctioned” by Sunjay to one of his friends, as per Zoom TV. The actor made the shocking revelation during her recollection of how her life changed completely after marriage, during her divorce proceedings.
Following her breakup with Abhishek Bachchan, with whom Karisma was engaged to be married, the Dil To Pagal Hai star tied the knot with businessman Sunjay Kapur. Theirs was an arranged marriage and trouble started brewing soon after.
While sharing a disturbing story of their honeymoon, Karisma had revealed that he [Sunjay] tried to force her to sleep with his friends. And when she refused, he beat her up. He even put a price tag on her, to auction to one of his friends. Karisma also went on to allege that Sanjay refused to follow up on his financial commitments. To that, Sunjay argued that Karisma only married him for his money.
Karisma and Sunjay tied the knot in 2003 in a grand wedding ceremony and after 11 years, the duo parted ways in 2014. Their divorce was an ugly affair, seeing both parties leveling nasty allegations against one another. Karisma had also filed a dowry harassment case against Sunjay and his mother Rani.
Airing their dirty laundry:
During one of the proceedings, Karisma claimed that once Rani, her then mother-in-law, gifted her a dress during the time she was pregnant. But seeing Karisma incapable of fitting into that dress, Sunjay asked Rani to slap her. Karisma stated that Sunjay looked at his mom and told her, “Why don’t you just slap her?”
The actor also alleged Sunjay enjoyed a philandering lifestyle that involved living with another woman. She recalled his mother supporting all his wrongdoings too and claimed that Sunjay was still in a physical relationship with his first wife when they tied the knot.
Karisma and Sunjay were legally battling to get custody of their kids, which required them to air their dirty laundry in public to deem the other party an unfit parent. The two were granted divorce in 2016, with Karisma winning custody over the children, Samaira Kapoor, and Kiaan Raj Kapoor. While Sunjay was allowed occasional visits.
