Some people might think that what happened in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ would not happen in real life. Which husband would want to marry his wife off to her lover, right? However, as it turns out, films do mirror society!
According to Times Now, a man in Bihar’s Bhagalpur recently married his wife off to her lover. He had been married to her for 7 years and even had two children with her.
Sapna Kumari got married to Uttam Mandal seven years ago. Reportedly, they were “happily married” until one day, Sapna met a relative of Uttam named Raju Kumar. She fell in love and went on to have an affair with him.
When Uttam got to know about this, naturally he was against it. But Sapna persisted, despite giving birth to two kids. Even her parents and in-laws tried to convince her to save her marriage but in vain.
According to Navbharat Times, the relationship between the married couple turned sour over the years. Therefore, Uttam finally agreed to marry Sapna off to Raju. He even arranged for a ceremony at a nearby temple and watched them take ‘saath phere’.
After the wedding rituals, Sapna and Raju sought Uttam’s blessings, which he did offer to them. However, it was reported that Uttam had tears in his eyes watching the entire incident unfold right in front of his eyes.
This isn’t the only such incident that has taken place. In the past, a man from Kanpur helped his wife marry her lover just three months after their marriage.
This goes on to show how you can’t bind someone to a loveless relationship. What Uttam Mandal has done is selfless and respectful.
