15 Bollywood Actress Married To Rich Man For Money

Bollywood Actresses Married for Money

We listen to a lot of these incidents where ordinary girls marry men just for their money. But there are cases in which even actresses chose money instead of love. It is definitely arguable that whether money brought these couples together or love, but as we have seen over the years, it is money in most cases.

1- Abhishek and Aishwarya


The famous couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are known for their marriage more than their acting. Aishwarya Rai married him as she saw him as a growing actor and also he is the son of Great Amitabh Bachchan.

2- Shilpa Shetty


Let’s not forget the old sweetheart of Bollywood, Shilpa Shetty. She went on to tie the knot with Raj Kundra, a British businessman. Apart from having a number of successful business ventures such as Groupco Developers and TMT Global, Raj and Shilpa even invested in their own IPL team, the Rajasthan Royals. It is said that Kundra makes about 100 million dollars each year! Well, this business tycoon sure is flying high today and taking his wife along for the beautiful ride.

3- Kim Sharma


Bollywood actress and model, Kim Sharma made her film debut with Aditya Chopra’s 2000 film, Mohabbatein. Kim married a Kenya-based businessman by the name of Ali Badruddin Punjani in August 2010. Ali is a rich guy, and so much so that when last year in 2017, it was reported that Kim and Ali have separated, she was left penniless. It was reported:

“Ali left Kim as he got attracted to another woman. The irony is that when Ali met Kim, he was plump and not great-looking but now because he is in love, he has lost weight and looking great. But Kim is left with no money or financial security. Right now, she is looking to establish her business in Mumbai to provide for herself financially. She is now a brand strategist and goes by the name Kimi Sharma (her real name). Kimi didn’t just leave their home in Kenya behind, but her job as the CEO of Punjani’s chain of hotels as well”.

10- Ayesha Takia

Everyone was surprised when Ayesha Takia simply upped and left, going miles away from Bollywood, in spite of having a fairly good career. At the young age of 23, Takia settled for marriage. She is now wedded to Farhan Azmi, mega hotelier and the son of politician Abu Azmi. Needless to say, he is quite an influential name in town, in terms of money, power, and prestige. Ayesha lives a content life now, with her husband and her son.

11- Tina Ambani

Let’s start at the top! We all know how the Ambani bahu used to be an actress. While she was not hugely successful, she did grab the eyeballs of plenty of actors/directors. However, none of those relationships seemed to last! But do you know whom she chose to tie the knot? It's none other than one of the richest men – Anil Ambani, cited as the 6th richest man in Forbes magazine. With a net worth of 2.8 billion USD (according to Forbes' report), we don’t even need to tell you what kind of luxuries and facilities are at her beck and call. You can imagine for yourselves!

12- Celina Jaitly

Here’s another actress whose stint in Bollywood was short-lived. She did a couple of movies but did not find herself catapulted towards stardom. So, she went ahead to marry Peter Haag, an Austrian who is a successful owner of hotel chains in Dubai as well as Singapore. Being married to a rich and successful hotelier seems to have worked wonders for Celina, as she is now happy and content and the mother of twin boys.

13- Rani Mukerji

Happy-go-lucky, vibrant, full of life – these words sum up Rani Mukerji for you. When people began to assume that she would never get married, the actress turned the tables by marrying the one and only Aditya Chopra! The man behind the country’s most popular film banner, Yash Raj Films. Wise choice, Rani! Adi Chopra’s YRF purportedly has a net worth of 960 million dollars. Rest assured that true to her name, Rani can live like a queen! Talk about a life of luxury.

14- Sridevi

While some may make faces and hound Sridevi for breaking up a marriage and a family, there are some others who will laud her for thinking ahead. Marrying Boney Kapoor is perhaps the wisest decision Sridevi could ever have made. Come on, you have to admit that each time Sridevi attends an event or a party, she looks rich. She doesn’t look like a mother of two grown-up girls now, does she? Boney Kapoor has a net worth of a million dollars or more. Yeah, he’s rolling in hard cash! We’ve got to give it to Sridevi for this one

15- Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapoor.

She is one of the few on this list who has enjoyed (and still does) a beautifully successful career. But she decided to go all the way and get married to Siddharth Roy Kapoor, who is equally successful and might we say, very, very loaded! Apart from being a producer, Siddharth also enjoyed the title of MD of The Walt Disney Co. India from which he resigned some time back. He is even a part of and mostly presides over meetings of the Film and Television Producers Guild of India. A powerful man who is also financially sound, with a net worth of a whopping 475 million dollars. We think Vidya made a stellar decision.
