Throwback: When Amrita Singh talked about Dimple Kapadia’s relationship with Sunny Deol


Dimple Kapadia turns a year older today, June 8. The veteran actor is now 65 years old. She is known for bold and beautiful performances in movies like ‘Kaash’, ‘Jaanbaaz’, ‘Sagar’, ‘Lekin’, ‘Krantiveer’, ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, among so many others.

She is also known for staying married but living separately from estranged husband Rajesh Khanna until his demise. The couple tied the knot in 1973 when Dimple was very young. Ten years and two daughters (Twinkle and Rinke) later, in 1982, the couple got separated. This is one of the reasons why Dimple’s first movie was in 1973 and her second movie was a decade later in 1983 – ‘Sagar’.

There is another bit of Dimple’s personal life that makes the news every now and then and that’s her relationship with Sunny Deol. For the unversed, for decades now it has been speculated that Sunny Deol and Dimple Kapadia have been seeing each other. This is despite the fact that Sunny Deol is a married man and has children. He is still very much married and is father to two grown boys.

Meanwhile, Dimple Kapadia’s daughters are also all grown up and married. Twinkle Khanna has carved quite the name for herself in the literary circle and is lauded for her wit. She is married to superstar Akshay Kumar and they are parents to two children.

This throwback dates many years ago when Sunny Deol was reportedly in a relationship with Amrita Singh. It was rumoured then that Sunny was seeing Amrita as well as Dimple.

At that time in an interaction with a magazine, Amrita Singh had allegedly said that Dimple Kapadia was “having her cake and eating it too.”

She is rumoured to have said, “So what if it’s not heading anywhere? When you’ve already lived a life, you are happy with a relationship that’s at the status quo.”

Amrita Singh has always been known to not hold back and is used to being straightforward. As per reports though, Dimple and Sunny have remained close through the years and a few years ago there were photos of the two of them holding hands in a train in London. Neither party has ever commented or responded to the rumours till date though.
