Dimple Kapadia and Sunny Deol were a hot couple who did a number of successful films including Arjun Manzil-Manzil Aag Ka Gola Gunah and Narsimha. Even though Sunny and Dimple were married at the time it was widely reported in every newspaper and magazine that they were madly in love. Rajesh Khanna and Dimple was separated at the time although they were still technically married. Even though the couple had always kept it a secret Sunny's ex-girlfriend Amrita Singh had confirmed that he had been seeing Dimple.

In a short time rumours started to circulate that Dimple Khanna who had recently filed for divorce from Rajesh Khanna was having a wonderful relationship with her co-star-turned-boyfriend Sunny. Twinkle Khanna and Rinke Khanna even started calling Sunny Chote Papa because of this. And when Simple Kapadia Dimple's sister passed away in 2009 Sunny was there to comfort her. The rumours about Dimple Kapadia and Sunny Deol's covert union were also making waves. If rumours were to be true Sunny allegedly treated Dimple like his wife at a number of social events and film industry parties. Sunny Deol made the decision not to divorce Pooja Deol. According to sources if Sunny doesn't leave Dimple Pooja would reportedly threaten to leave the house with their two boys Karan and Rajveer Deol. Sunny made the decision to remain with his wife and children as a result but their secret relationship continued. Like many lovers Dimple Kapadia and Sunny Deol wanted to keep their affair a secret. There were slow whispers in the business about their hidden affair even if the rumours gradually subsided. Some claimed that the two were still very much in love and together after their lengthy 11-year relationship. 

Dimple Kapadia and Sunny Deol's images and videos from their vacation in Monaco where they were seen holding hands like young lovers went viral in September 2017 as proof that the rumours were true. The couple from earlier was seen in the stolen photos and video holding hands securely and conversing.

Husband

The actor Rajesh Khanna was adored by Dimple Kapadia. Despite being aware that the actress is still in her teenage years the actor wasted no time in proposing marriage to Dimple Kapadia after learning about her breakup and obsession with him. Dimple Kapadia was thrilled to accept her favourite movie star's proposal. The scene was set and everyone in the film industry was invited to Rajesh and Dimple's wedding. There was extensive media coverage of their wedding. After all it was one of the best actors in the business getting married. Dimple Kapadia married Rajesh Khanna on 27 March 1973.

But the couple's age difference caught everyone off guard. Dimple married Rajesh who was 15 years her senior when she was barely 16 years old. Dimple left the industry after getting married at Rajesh's request but she didn't mind too much because her family was her top priority. Dimple however stuck by his side and helped him get through the trying time until Rajesh fell in love with another young aspiring actress Tina Munim. The actress had a total of 11 films with Kaka and because she was such a big fan of his she was unable to contain her feelings for him.

Despite their separation the couple did not finish their divorce. Despite Tina's repeated requests Kaka did not divorce the actress since he was very close to their daughters Twinkle and Rinki Khanna. Years after their separation they both found their lost love again but they kept their separate lives. Nevertheless despite their relationship's ups and downs Dimple and Rajesh Khanna continued to get along and were frequently spotted together at social events political rallies and other locations.
