When Kishore Kumar left wife Madhubala at her parent's home after doctor told she won't live long
Madhubala faced many hardships and struggles in her life, apart from her dazzling career in Bollywood; one of such problems was her health issues; read on.
The epitome of grace, beauty and courage, Madhubala, the name is enough to make millions of hearts beat. The actress was considered one of the most beautiful women in India and had a massive fan following. Although her life looked perfect on screen, it was not a piece of cake offscreen.
Madhubala had many men in her life, and later she got tired of all the unstable relationships in her life. Madhubala had met Kishore Kumar during the shoot of Chalti Ka Naam Gadi and Half Ticket, soon they fell in love and got married.
But their marriage was short-lived as destiny played its cruel role. They dated each other for nine years. Madhubala instantly said yes to Kumar's proposal, and in 1960, they tied a knot.
Kishore also converted to Islam and changed his name to Karim Abdul for the sake of her parents. However, she was never accepted in Kumar's family despite of a Hindu wedding. All this chaos took a toll on her mental health.
After a few days, Kishore and Madhubala left for London, where she had some health issues; doctors revealed that she has a heart condition that has gotten worse, and she has only two years to live.
After learning that Madhubala has a hole in the heart, Kishore Kumar left her at her parent's house, as he thought he could not take care of her as he was busy with shoots.
Reports say that Madhubala wanted Kumar's love and support amid such difficult times. So Kumar bought a falt at Quarter Deck, Carter Road, where they stayed for a while. But she would be alone most of the time. The sea breeze made her sicker.
Madhubala's brother Madhur in an interview said that Kishore would visit her once in two to three months. Madhubala was confined to bed for nine years and was reduced to bones and skin. Madhubala breathed her last on February 23, 1969. She and Kishore never had children.
