This nymphet who started her career at the tender age of 15, showed immense promise yet gave up everything to marry producer Rajiv Rai. Sonam whose real name is Bhaktavar, despite making her screen presence felt, never really made it to the top. However, her marriage and subsequent motherhood – she became mother to a son Gaurav in 1992 – kept her away from the limelight for many years. At that point of time, Rajiv Rai was allegedly being threatened by the underworld and even nearly escaped a fatal bid to his life. The couple with their son then vanished from the Bollywood circuit completely and supposedly, lived in Switzerland for many years. However, things weren’t very good between Sonam and her husband and they supposedly, started living apart from 2001. Last year, their relationship went completely kaput and ended in a divorce, and this year, after a hiatus of many years, Sonam came back into the spotlight. News filtered in that she married her boyfriend Dr Murali Poduval. Sonam later confirmed it on social media. She went on to say that Dr Murali and she had met in Pondicherry and had fallen in love. Murali like Sonam is also a divorcee. They got married in the presence of Sonam’s 23-year-old son. Stardust wishes them the very best!
