8 Yesteryear Heroines Who Never Married

They say a woman is incomplete without marriage but this rule has undergone a lot of change as far as our Bollywood heroines and actresses are concerned. The 50’s and 60’s saw heroines donning the greasepaint for the lark of it and settled down in marriage after five or six years of stardom. The 70’s and 80’s saw a change in trend where heroines started taking their acting career a lot seriously before settling down in matrimony. They extended their shelf-life as a lead by another five years knowing very well that after marriage they will be offered ‘bhabhi’ roles. The heroines who voluntarily retired in the previous decades were already playing ‘mother’ to heroes whom they had romanced some years ago. Then came the 20th century which changed the very thought of marital bliss. The latest trend was being more career-oriented and stay single than marry the wrong guy or if at all marry then marry a rich guy. We get to see so many leading actresses who are in their late 30’s and early 40’s but still haven’t taken the plunge as they’ve chosen to stay single. An actress like Sushmita Sen has gone a step further by adopting two daughters. There’s a price for fame and stardom which doesn’t come easily. Barring the current lot of Bollywood heroines, let’s take a look at some of the yesteryear heroines from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s who had relationships but never got hitched to anyone.
