A lot of us are envious of Bollywood celebrities and their larger than life shaadis. At times, we even dream of getting married to one of the stars to enjoy all the spotlight. But then, as we say, people who work together, stay together; celebs tend to marry another celeb and everyone is then related to each other in the fraternity. But there are always exceptions. There are a few actresses who decided to pick on a partner who is NOT from the industry. In fact, some actress chose to get out of their circle and marry into a political family.
