Why Karisma Kapoor & Abhishek Bachchan Broke Their Engagement
Karisma Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan belonged to the two powerful families in the Bollywood film industry. They were almost getting married before calling off their engagement. Both the families and even Abhishek and Karisma have never spoken about the reason behind it in public.
Here is the actual reason why Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor broke their engagement and went their separate ways. Karisma and Abhishek’s engagement was announced on the 60th birthday celebration of Amitabh Bachchan in October 2002.
The young couple was very much in love with each other and their happiness was reflected when they were spotted during the function. Also, Jaya Bachchan was really overjoyed in welcoming Karisma as Bachchan’s daughter-in-law. So, Here is Why Karisma Kapoor & Abhishek Bachchan Broke Their Engagement The Bachchan family was very close to politician Amar Singh during this time. Amitabh and Amar Singh were more like brothers as the political leader was treated as a member of the family. Amar had used various actresses from the film industry who worked as escorts. His leaked phone conversations with Bipasha Basu years later are proof of that.

So Amar Singh doubted that as an actress, Karisma also would be working as an escort. He wanted to know if she was involved in escorting and he used his influence and hired men to follow Karisma wherever she went. Also, Karisma’s mother Babita wanted to sign a pre-nuptial agreement before the marriage. She wanted financial security for her daughter if the marriage did not work because Babita did not want Karisma to suffer like her. When Babita was separated from Randhir Kapoor who was an unsuccessful actor, she had no money to take care of herself and her daughters. As she did not want history to repeat, she asked Amitabh and Jaya to sign over certain properties in the name of Abhishek. The insistence on the pre-nuptial agreement made Amar Singh more suspicious about Karisma being an escort and he was adamant in finding the truth.
But the personal detectives that he hired could not find anything during their spying on Karisma. In the meantime, the Kapoor family came to know about what Amar Singh was doing. They were upset with the politician’s actions and Karisma’s mother was furious at him and the Bachchans. Since the Bachchans were having a difficult time with their financial burden, they badly needed the support of Amar Singh. So they took his side and defended him. They explained the actions by saying that Amar had their best interests at his heart and was only trying to be helpful. As the Bachchan family did not apologize or regret what they have done, Babita decided that her daughter would not be married into such a badly controlling household. The engagement was suddenly called off without any explanation. So, that’s Why Karisma Kapoor & Abhishek Bachchan Broke Their Engagement.
It was pretty hard for Abhishek and Karisma as they were really into each other. While Abhishek channeled his sadness by completely immersing in his work, what waited Karisma was completely tragic. She was immediately married off to businessman Sanjay Kapoor who was already a divorcee.
Even though Sanjay was a family friend of the Kapoors, he was abusive towards Karisma. After more than a decade of being married and having 2 children, the actress filed for divorce and is currently single. As for Amar Singh, he and Amitabh Bachchan fell apart once the politician landed in jail. He was upset that no one from the Bachchan family came to visit him in jail. They were not even on talking terms when Amar Singh died in the past year.
Anyway, he was the reason why the two most powerful families in Bollywood could not come closer. If it had been not for him, Abhishek and Karisma would have been happily married.
