Priyanka Chopra impending marriage to American singer, songwriter, and record producer Nick Jonas is the talk of the town at the moment. But, she isn’t the first Bollywood heroine to get hitched to a foreigner, and while a name or two may pop in your mind now that we’ve mentioned it, we bet that the list we’ve compiled is going to spring a few surprises.
Check out which Bollywood actresses have married foreigners in the past:
1.) Preity Zinta and Gene Goodenough
Preity tied the knot with her long-time American partner Gene at a private ceremony in Los Angeles on 29th February 2016.
2.) Celina Jaitley and Peter Haag
Celine settled down with Austrian hotelier Haag in 2011, after a long courtship. They’ve been blessed with twin boys Winston and Viraaj, and a third son Arthur, who was born a few years later. The family lives alternatively between Singapore and Dubai.
3.) Lisa Ray and Jason Dehni
Lisa got hitched to California-based management consultant, banking executive, and philanthropist Dehni in 2012, soon after being cured of cancer.
4.) Shriya Saran and Andrei Koscheev
Though Shriya is a more popular name in South films, she has done some Bollywood work, and the fact remains that she’s also married to Russian tennis player Koscheev. The couple exchanged vows on 19th March 2018.
5.) Reena Roy and Mohsin Khan
Mohsin Khan was one of the most-stylish cricketers of his time, both while batting on the field, and off it, too. Perhaps that could explain why Reena Roy bid adieu to Bollywood at the height of her career to settle down into marital harmony with the Pakistani dasher. It wasn’t quite the harmonious union through and ended in an acrimonious divorce a few years later.
6.) Ileana D’Cruz and Andrew Kneebone
Okay, she may not have tied the knot yet, but it’s only a matter of time with Ileana, who’s been in a relationship with Australian photographer Kneebone for years now, and keeps whisking off between film shoots to spend quality time with him.
Love and truly strike anywhere and anytime.
