So, it turns out Karan Johar lied. True love doesnt happen just once.
You’d have thought that when their first marriage fell through, these celebs would have been too paranoid to give marriage a second try; but apparently love does overcome all. Here’s a look at seven celeb couples who found true love the second time round:
Saif Ali Khan & Kareena Kapoor
Her affair with Saif Ali Khan may have garnered a lot of publicity given that it came shortly on the heels of her breakup with Shahid Kapoor; but the duo overcame all the negative publicity, and their ten year age gap, to happily tie the knot in 2012, thereby marking Saif’s second trip down the aisle after his earlier marriage with Amrita Singh crashed and burned.
Aamir Khan & Kiran Rao
We always thought that Cupid hadn’t been too kind on Aamir Khan, given how his fifteen year marriage to Reena Dutta ended with him handing over custody of both his kids, but Cupid finally took mercy on him and sent Kiran Rao his way - The duo hit it off big time and tied the knot late 2005.
Shilpa Shetty & Raj Kundra
Businessman Raj Kundra’s abrupt divorce with his first wife in his hurry to be married to Bollwyood actress Shilpa Shetty may have drawn many raised eyebrows, but then again, who are we to argue with the power of true love?

Sanjay & Maanyata Dutt
His personal life may currently be topsy-turvy due to his run-in with the law, but actor Sanjay Dutt still counts his second marriage to Maanyata Dutt as the best thing to have happened to him in a long time; eighteen years age gap notwithstanding.

Boney Kapoor & Sridevi
The fact that Sridevi gave birth to daughter Janhavi while Boney Kapoor was still married to Mona Kapoor may have drawn much gossip, but we are glad that the duo tied the knot in 1996 and finally found happiness.

Dharmendra & Hema Malini
Given that he didn’t let their thirteen age gap stand in their way, it probably shouldn’t have come as a surprise when Dharmendra converted to Islam to marry Hema Malini, after falling for her on the sets of Sholay.

Lara Dutta & Mahesh Bhupathi
His marriage to former Miss Universe Lara Dutta may have come a bit soon after his previous one with model Shvetha Jaishankar fell through, but we can’t exactly blame him for wanting to snap Lara up before someone else did.
