Aravind Swamy the hero of Mani Ratnam’s Bombay got divorced after 16 years of being married to a Mumbai girl Gayatri. There was a time when many of the Bollywood heroines found the fair skinned suave Aravind very happening.
In fact, girls of the 90’s would often be discussing him as dishy. However, Aravind was one of those staid married types who put his hands in his pocket when he spotted a heroine approaching him. In other words, Aravind didn’t flirt. But he and his Bombay heroine Manisha Koirala always remained friends.
One hears that when Manisha was shooting for her Tamil film recently, she had a surprise visitor.Yes, Aravind dropped by to say hello and the two were chatting like long standing school buddies. Nice to hear these stories because they are so rare in the film industry. Unfortunately it is coincidental that Aravind regained his bachelor status with divorce while Manisha has lost her 40 year old Bachelor status by marrying Samrat.
