Bollywood actress Madhubala has mesmerized her fans and movie buffs with her beauty and talent. Her mysterious smile has always hooked people to the screen. Her passing away at the mere age of 36, succumbing to a miserable illness, was a setback to many fans and movie lovers.
But it was said that her on-screen bubbly, dreamy life is far different from her real tragic life. From heartbreaks to health issues, the actress had enormous pain in her life.
Madhubala's name was linked with many actors and filmmakers during her acting career. The famous one was with handsome Dilip Kumar. Talking about Madhubala and Dilip's affairs, her sister, Madhur Bhushan told Filmfare, "Apa first fell in love with Premnath. The relationship lasted six months. It broke on the grounds of religion. He asked her to convert and she refused. The next relationship was with Dilip Kumar. She met Bhaijan (Dilip Kumar) on the sets of Tarana. They later worked in Sangdil, Amar and Mughal-e-Azam. It was a nine-year-long affair. They even got engaged."
But why then Madhubala didn't marry Dilip Kumar? It is reported that, Madhubala's father, Ataullah Khan, didn't allow this holy union of the two. According to Madhubala's sister, Madhur Bhushan, it was the court case during the making of the Film Naya Daur that separated Madhubala and Dilip.
Later in an interview with Rediff.com, Madhubala's sister, Madhur reflected on her marriage with legendary singer Kishore Kumar and said that Madhubala was madly in love with Dilip even after they went their ways. Not only that, when Kishore proposed, Madhubala married him out of anger against Dilip.
"Madhubala married Kishore Kumar out of stubbornness, and anger towards Dilip saab. They got married in 1960. She was 27 years old," she added.
