According to Bollywood lore, producer Boney Kapoor fell in love with Sridevi when he saw her Tamil films in the ‘70s. He then bided his time and waited until he could offer her the female lead role in ‘Mr India’ in 1984. During the making of the film he confessed his love to Sridevi. She was apparently in a dilemma as Boney was married to Mona at the time. The actress and the producer were in a relationship for several years before they finally tied the knot in 1996. Boney’s first wife took his decision badly and initially there were troubled times for everyone involved. But the Boney-Sridevi marriage has withstood all that. They now have two teenage daughters.
