Aishwarya Rai

Let’s start with the world’s most gorgeous woman Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. As we all know, the Aishwarya-Salman affair had generated a big storm when their break-up story hit newspapers and tabloids. But what went wrong between the two most ‘good-looking’ people? Well, Aishwarya after the split up was found saying that she had to endure Salman’s alcoholism and was at the receiving end of his abuses and infidelity. They broke up when Salman indirectly confessed to her that he was cheating on her. In 2000, Aishwarya's parents also filed a police complaint against Salman Khan for stalking, threatening and trying to forcefully enter Aishwarya’s house.



This whole episode took another leap in 2002, when Salman came onto the sets of Chalte Chalte. Furious actor “reportedly” hit Aishwarya and pushed her on the ground and destroyed the sets. As a result of all this high-end drama, Aishwarya was sacked from the film and Rani Mukerji was roped in.

Aishwarya in her interview to Times of India said, There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks. And I would go to work as if nothing had happened."



Now going to the other side of the story, when Salman was asked whether he has hit a woman, he said "If I hit a woman, she wouldn't have survived. It's not true that I hit a woman."

As for the former Miss World, “Let others say what they want. But every person concerned knows the truth... God is the witness."

Aishwarya even declared Salman’s chapter to be a nightmare in her life.

Zeenat Aman

A successful actress, model and former beauty queen, Zeenat’s married life and her relationship both were unfortunately far away from being perfect. In the 80s Zeenat's relationship with already married Sanjay Khan ended on a terrible note. There were reports in the print that Sanjay brutally bashed up Zeenat in front of his wife in hotel Taj.



He thrashed her so much that Zeenat got a permanent scar on her eye. After this incident, Zeenat went into the state of shock and had to be injected with anti-depressants three times a day. In an old report one of her doctor was quoted saying “Zeenat was in such a terrible state. Her face was covered with bruises and black eyes. There were blood clots in her eyes and her lips were severely cut.”



After this gory anti-fairy-tale, Zeenat got married to Mazhar Khan. Unfortunately the actress was physically battered in this relationship also. In a press conference in Mumbai, Zeenat bravely spoke about this issue and brought it to limelight. Zeenat had filed for divorce also but Mazhar’s sudden death due to renal failure brought an end to to their marriage.

Yukta Mookhey

Now moving from famous to not so famous starlets of Bollywood, here is another beauty queen. The former Miss World Yukta Mookhey was also a victim of domestic violence. She filed a complaint against her husband Prince Tulli at a police station in Mumbai. According to the reports, she accused her husband of beating her often.

Dimpy Ganguly

Right after the much-publicised Swayamwar, Dimpy Mahajan was seen making headlines for her charges against her husband Rahul Mahajan. She spoke out loud about his abusive ways and how Rahul used to point his gun at her during their fights. When Mumbai Mirror met up with Dimpy just hours after that incident, there were bruises on her shin, right and left hand, while her left cheek was swollen. There was also a lump on her head. Dimpy’s statement in the media at that time was, “I don't know what I have gotten myself into. He seemed nice, but no one can control him when he gets abusive."

Shweta Tiwari

The most popular beti of Indian Television, Shweta Tiwari, is another victim of domestic violence. Before her divorce the actress had been pouring her heart out in interviews about troubled relationship with her husband. The abusive marriage lasted 14 years and came to an end with Shweta’s allegations about domestic abuse in court against Raja. She claimed that Raja would come home drunk and physically harm her. During their marriage also, Shweta had reported against Raja several times in police stations for physical and verbal abuse.

Rucha Gujrati

TV actress Rucha Gujrati who made her debut with Ekta Kapoor's show-Kkusum is another victim on the list. She was married to businessman Mitul Sanghavi and reportedely her marriage hit the rock bottom due to the physical and mental abuse at the hands of her husband and in-laws. According to the reports published in TOI, sources said that Rucha was tortured and badly beaten on many occasions by her husband and in-laws. The torture was to an extent that she was even deprived of meals and asked to foot the bills for her expenses.
