In 1979, Bollywood superstar Mithun Chakraborty married Yogeeta and now the couple has been together for over four decades. The couple even has children from their marriage. However, there was a time when the actor got married to the beautiful late actress Sridevi. Mithun and Sridevi got married in 1985 and got separated in 1988 after the actor refused to leave his first wife, Yogeeta Bali for the late actress. Amidst all this, Mithun Chakraborty’s wife Yogeeta Bali attempted suicide. Read on to know all about it in detail.
Mithun Chakraborty’s wife Yogeeta Bali:
Before Bollywood, Sridevi ruled the Tamil film industry. Sridevi was one of the firsts female superstars in the South industry. To everyone’s shock, Mithun Chakraborty married the Nagina actress Sridevi while he was already married to Yogeeta Bali. Later, when Yogeeta found out about his marriage to Sridevi she attempted suicide. Talking to a leading daily, she said, “I will accept it even if he has a second wife.”
Moreover, the reports also suggest that Sridevi had no idea about Mithun Chakraborty’s divorce from Yogeeta Bali and hence married him. Hence, when she found out about it she filed for an annulment in marriage and separated in 1988. The Disco Dancer actor wasn’t ready to hurt or leave his first wife Bali and therefore Sridevi decided to file for legal separation. After her separation from Mithun Chakraborty, the late actress got married to producer Boney Kapoor in 1996.
