Ishaa Koppikar's ex's shaadi to non-filmi girl fails

Ishaa Koppikar's ex-beau Inder Kumar tied the knot with a non-industry girl soon after the actress broke off with him. But his marriage to Kamaljeet Kaur went kaput within two months. The actor is now in the throes of getting a divorce.

As soon as Ishaa went public with her current love, restaurateur Timmy Narang in July last year, Inder also wanted to move on in life.

Though nursing a broken heart, as Inder and Ishaa had been together on and off for 12 years, he finally took the plunge.

Says an industry source, "Inder thought that marriage would enable him to forget Ishaa. He was keen to find stability in life and have a family.

That is why he was keen to marry someone who was not associated with Bollywood in any way. He thought he had found his match in Kamaljeet. But their relations were strained and the marriage was on the rocks soon."

It is learnt that the very reasons why Inder married Kamaljeet went for a toss when she wanted to lead a life with starry trappings.

Adds the source, " Inder was shocked by her changed behaviour. She demanded designer brand wear. He realised that she had married him not for Inder, the person but Inder, the film actor. When all dialogue failed, a separation was the only way out."

Inder who has been maintaining a low profile post the Ishaa break-up admits, "Yes, I did marry as I wanted to settle in life. But things did not work out. I don't want to say anything more at his juncture about anyone. After a while, I will."

Incidentally, the Ishaa and Inder relationship hit rocky terrain several times but they reconciled every phase - Inder's unsuccessful film career, his failed marriage and a drug abuse problem that resulted in hospitalisation.

Inder was also briefly married in 2003 to Sonal Kariya (daughter of film publicist Rajoo Kariya) from whom he has a daughter. It is learnt that Sonal, too, has moved on and remarried. Informs the source, "Sonal has relocated outside Mumbai and she has a daughter now."

On the B-Town front, Inder will be seen in Prabhudeva's Wanted Dead or Alive, Paritossh Painter's Paying Guest and Anees Bazmee's It's My Life.
