Like it or not, you just cannot escape from social media. Just last week, pictures of actor Ranbir Kapoor with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in New York went crazy viral and now, a video of Dimple Kapadia with Sunny Deol, holding hands, is swiftly becoming one of the top trends on the Internet. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the alleged ex-couple were spotted in London and flew to the city last month for a holiday. Self-styled film critic Kamaal R Khan was one of the first persons to share the video on Twitter and wrote, “Sunny Deol and Dimple Kapadia are enjoying their holidays together. They are looking beautiful couple.” (sic).
As soon as the video popped up, Twitter soon started revisiting Dimple Kapadia and Sunny Deol’s alleged romance, which dates back to the 80’s. “Ishq chhupta nahin chhupaane se, kya faayda darr ke zamaane se,” tweeted a user. While Sunny Deol was criticized for spending time with Dimple Kapadia. “Sunny Deol and Dimple Kapadia affair still continues. Wonder how his wife accepts this. Ajeeb rishte of Bollywood,” “Sunny Deol is the latest example of ‘men are trash’. He has a wife, but overseas with Dimple Kapadia,” wrote the Twitter users.
Dimple Kapadia and Sunny Deol co-starred with each other in films such as Manzil Manzil, Arjun, Aag Ka Gola and Narasimha. Several media reports claim that Sunny Deol, despite being married, had given Dimple Kapadia the status of a wife and he was the main reason behind the actress’ separation with late actor Rajesh Khanna. However, none of them ever acknowledged their alleged romance.
Dimple Kapadia married superstar Rajesh Khanna in 1973, few months before the release of her debut film Bobby. Their first child, daughter Twinkle Khanna, was born in 1974 and Rinke in 1977. The couple separated in 1984 but never divorced.
Sunny Deol, currently married to Pooja, is a father to two sons – Karan and Rajveer. Karan is prepping for his Bollywood debut and is being launched by Sunny Deol, son of veteran actor Dharmendra. Sunny Deol was last seen in Poster Boys.
