Veteran actress Sonam aka Bakhtavar Khan who has worked with some of the biggest Bollywood stars like Rishi Kapoor, Govinda, Dharmendra among others, got married for the second time with Dr. Murali Poduval.
The couple recently had an intimate nikaah ceremony on April 14 in Ooty. Murali, just like his better-half (Sonam) is also a divorcee and a businessman by profession.
Sonam was earlier married to a famous director, Rajiv Rai who is known for movies like Tridev and Vishwatma. Sonam and Rajiv fell in love while working together in Tridev. After dating for 3 years, the ex-couple tied the knot on January 21, 1991. They also have a 23-year-old son named, Gaurav Rai.
She was at the peak of her career when she got married. As Rajiv was not in a favour of his wife working in the films, the diva bid goodbye to her career. After the birth of their son, Sonam and Rajiv shifted to Los Angeles and finally settled in Switzerland.
As her son grew, she was keen on making a comeback, but Rajiv was against it. Soon their marriage hit a rough patch and after being in a meaningless relationship for 15 long years (they were together for the betterment of their son), the couple got divorced last year, after 25 years of marriage.
Love blossomed again in her life when she met a friend, Murali Poduval, in Puducherry, who proposed her for marriage soon and she accepted it to give love a chance all over again.
Speaking bout her second marriage, Sonam revealed to SpotboyE that, “Murali and I had a nikkah on April 14 in Ooty.”
Our heartiest congratulations to Sonam and her hubby, Murali.
