The Bollywood Celebrities who married twice or more

 Love and loyalty are the inevitable traits that hold a marriage together. Bollywood has had its own share of famous marriages, shocking divorces, and breakups but some celebrities took the plunge more than twice by having multiple marriages of which some turned out successful and some didn't. In this blog, I have selected those celebrities who did not find happiness in their first marriage but were successful the second time around and apart from their personal life, have successful professional lives too.
