Myth Busters! Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!

It “was” a man’s world…, not anymore!

When we look at our Indian society, we see that the wife mostly stays behind her husband, and her actions are more or less guided by the men. But, things aren’t similar anymore. The stereotypes are slammed and the myths are busted in this millennial era. Women are successfully taking over the so-called “man’s world” and are making a stand for their own.

Bollywood industry is no less than a good list of stereotype busters. The gorgeous ladies are going notches higher…, sometimes even surpassing their husband’s fame! Several B-Town leading ladies are making an important stance in the film industry, and are financially independent too. Let’s take a tour of all those ladies who have successfully defeated their husband’s popularity:

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


Myth Busters! 9 Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!


The former Miss World and one of the most gorgeous women in the world, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has made her own name around the world all by herself. She is known to all, and she takes immense pride in that. Although Aishwarya married Abhishek Bachchan in 2007, but she has always remained an inch taller than him in her stardom! Despite Abhishek being the legendary Big-B’s son, he couldn’t reach to that level where Aishwarya is right now.

Madhuri Dixit Nene


Myth Busters! Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!


Who can forget the “Dhak-Dhak” girl from the 90’s, Madhuri Dixit! She created a sensation back then with her latkaas and jhatkaas, right? She shocked her fans/ lovers when she tied her knots with Dr. Sriram Nene and flew to the USA with him. However, the duo came back to India and we’re sure it was because Madhuri missed Bollywood (of course, Bollywood missed Madhuri equally…, right?). Many a times, people recall Sriram as “Madhuri’s husband”, but he’s a mature man to leave aside his ego and be happy for his superstar wife!

Shilpa Shetty Kundra


Myth Busters! Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!


Shilpa Shetty Kundra has always been the heartthrob of Bollywood and her sexy “adaa” has looted “U.P. and Bihar” (LOL!). Her stardom grew bigger when she won the international celebrity reality show ‘Big Brother’. Shilpa got married to the businessman and an IPL team Rajasthan Royal’s owner Raj Kundra in the year 2009, but she still is more famous than him in all the aspects.

Preity Zinta


Myth Busters! Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!


The “dimple girl” of Bollywood, Preity Zinta is the heart beat of zillions in India. She is the owner of the IPL team Kings XI Punjab and is one of the most gorgeous faces of Bollywood. Preity Zinta got married to her longtime boyfriend, Gene Goodenough. Gene is not even a known face, but Preity is one of the most followed B-Town actresses.

Raveena Tandon


Myth Busters! Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!


Raveena Tandon back in the 90’s was a fashionista and a trendsetter for all those fashion-freak girls out there. She has given back-to-back blockbusters in Bollywood and is known for her versatility. Less people know that, she adopted two girls when she was only 20 years old and broke many stereotypes. Raveena married a film distributor Anil Thandani, who is not a known face in India of course. The “Mast-Mast” actress is coming back with her thriller film ‘Matr’ which is one of the most promising films of 2017.

Farah Khan Kunder


Myth Busters! Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!


Who doesn’t know Farah Khan! She is one of the most frequent faces of Bollywood and the fraternity loves her. The most famous choreographer turned director Farah Khan has made it large by making big banner movies like ‘Main Hoon Na’ and ‘Happy New Year’. Farah married the film editor Shirish Kunder. But, not many people know about him, right?

Dia Mirza Sangha


Myth Busters! Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!


The former Miss Asia Pacific, Dia Mirza became famous countrywide with her amazing performance in ‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’. This Hyderabadi beauty is surely the face of her husband Sahil Sangha’s business. Dia Mirza has turned her interest into film production and is doing pretty well for herself. Definitely, you know Dia much much more than her husband. And it’s true that Dia’s husband enjoyed a huge business profit because of his star wife!

Vidya Balan


Myth Busters! Bollywood wives who are more popular than their husbands!


The sexy yet classy versatile actress Vidya Balan has it all to become one of the top earning actresses in Bollywood. She has always chosen her movies diligently, which surfaced a social message as well. With her par-excellence performance in the movies like Kahaani, The Dirty Picture and Ishqiya, Vidya has proved her unique stardom to everyone, and we all love her. She got married to Siddharth Roy Kapur in 2012, and nobody can deny that Vidya Balan is clearly much more well known celebrity than her producer husband, what say? Her movie Begum Jaan has already wowed the audience as well as the critics because there are less actresses who can pull-off such a challenging role!

So you see, these actresses can dare to make a difference in the society by taking a stand for themselves. What do you have to say about this? Share your views in the comments section below!
