In our Indian culture, marriage is a synonym for settling down in life. And while it is looked upon as a great deal, it is a must-do for every individual. This is why when any Bollywood actor ‘settles down’ they literally break the internet, especially the actresses. But like our diverse Indian culture, our Indian film industry also has a variety of relationships we get to witness, while there are some happy couples, there are also actors who fell in love but never decided to settle down. 

And some of our leading ladies in Bollywood fall in this category, despite having name, fame, wealth, and also the love of their life they never chose to get married. We bring you Bollywood beauties who fell in love, but never married only for reasons known to them…

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut has been a firebrand in Bollywood. While she literally takes on anybody and everybody who crosses her path, she has burnt bridges with many in Bollywood. And it is her affairs with some married men of Bollywood that made her take this stance, however, there was a point and affair of the actress when everybody thought she will get married. But to date, Kangana has not taken the plunge. 


Tabu has been leaving us smitten with her spectacular performances even now, while she has been ruling the roost since the 90s era, her series of stellar performances don’t seem to end any time soon. On the personal front, Tabu has been linked to Sajid Nadiadwala, South star Nagarjuna and some other superstars. In fact, Tabu was also reported to be engaged with Sajid Nadiadwala, but nobody knows why did the actress chose not to get married in her life. 

Divya Dutta

Divya Dutta is a well-acclaimed name in Bollywood for both commercial and content-driven cinema. And her impeccable craft is a golden feather in her hat. Despite so many achievements, Divya has often been in the news for her love affairs, however, the actress has never spoken about them openly, and nor has she gotten married till date. 

Parveen Babi

Bollywood’s yesteryear actress, the late Parveen Babi, ruled the 70s for her glamorous avatar. And while she stayed in the news for dating various married actors, she was someone who was also known for having affairs with her co-stars. Sadly, Parveen developed schizophrenia, she even accused a superstar of trying to kill her and she succumbed to her miseries all alone. 


There has never been any clarity about the evergreen beauty Rekha’s marital status. While her affair with megastar Amitabh Bachchan is known and talked about to date, there are contradicting reports about her marriage. Some say that Rekha was married thrice to businessmen who died, while others say that she never married waiting for Amitabh Bachchan. In fact, it is also said that she wears a sindoor (vermilion) of Big B’s name on her forehead to date.
