Some people are unlucky in marriages. The man we will going to introduce to you today was married twice and both the times his wives died. We are talking about none other than famous producer Boney Kapoor. He first married Mona Kapoor in 1983 and the couple has two children, Arjun Kapoor (born 1985) and Anshula (born in 1987).
They were leading a happy life until Sridevi came between in 1996. She was accused of breaking a happy family. Boney Kapoor fell in love with Sridevi and divorced Mona in 1996 and married Sridevi following the same year. Mona was all shattered, her life broke down, she had two little children to care. But dumping by someone is the biggest pain not everyone in this world can bear. Mona was one of them.
She diagnosed with cancer. It is said that it was Sridevi who affected Mona Kapoor. She died due to multiple organ failures after battling with cancer and hypertension on 25 March 2012. She was highly disturbed as her husband left her for another woman and also abandoned his children. Arjun was 10 years old when his father left him. Arjun believes that it was Sridevi who shattered their family. She snatched his father from him and changed their lives forever.
After Mona’s death, Boney never knew that he had yet to suffer more. The ill-fated day came on February 24, 2018, when his second wife and screen legend Sridevi breathed her last in Dubai following an accidental drowning. The actress, 54, had gone there to attend the wedding function of her nephew Mohit Marwah and never came back alive.
Sridevi’s elder daughter Janhvi was about to debut in Bollywood in July 2018. She had been alive for five more months so that she would have been able to watch the film, slated to release on July 20. Call it a mind-boggling coincidence or the cruel twist of fate, something similar had happened at the time of Boney Kapoor’s first wife Mona Kapoor’s death. Mona, a film producer, had succumbed to cancer just two months before the release of Ishaqzaade, her son Arjun Kapoor’s debut film. While Ishaqzaade had released in May 2012, Mona had passed away on March 25 the same year.
It is extremely sad to know that Boney has to deal with the loss of a wife for the second time in his life. He is a widower again and this time. As we Indians are superstitious of the kind, we believe it happens when a person is Manglik. He might be or might not be a Manglik.
In Hindu astrology, a person with Mangal Dosha is believed to be unfavourable for marriages, causing discomfort and tension in the relationship, leading to severe disharmony among the spouses and eventually to other bigger problems sometimes even death.
