Nargis Dutt


In a nation where love is highly dominated by religion, Nargis Dutt, the yesteryear heartthrob did not let that affect her choice when it came to love. She was a Muslim who fell in love with Sunil Dutt, who was a Hindu and her co-star in the movie Mother India. She quite fearlessly embraced Hinduism and even adopted a Hindu name, Nirmala Dutt. Their marriage surprised the post-partition divided nation. It was a surprise for their fans as well as they went public about their love only after they got married.


Sharmila Tagore

When she was at the top of her career, she fell in love with the Nawab of Pataudi, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi who was a Muslim. She converted to Islam and took on a new name Begum Ayesha Sultana.

Ayesha Takia Azmi
