despite this, he was unable to forget her.
An Indian husband got his wife married to her lover, echoing the plot of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
The 1999 film narrates the story of newlywed Sameer (Salman Khan) who discovers that his wife (Aishwarya Rai) is in love with another man (Ajay Devgn).
He then decides to unite them.
The plot appeared to come to life in Uttar Pradesh’s Deoria where a man helped his wife reunite with her lover and got her married to him.
The couple had been married for a year.
However, he did not know that his wife was cheating on him with a man from Bihar.
The affair came to light when the lover, Akash Shah, turned up at the woman’s marital home to meet her.
Locals spotted Akash and realised he was at the house for a tryst. They then assaulted him.
A resident of Bihar’s Gopalganj, Akash revealed he had been in a relationship with the woman for two years.
He knew she was married but despite this, he was unable to forget her.
Akash explained that this was the reason why he turned up at her house to meet her.
The Indian husband found out about the affair but things took an unexpected turn when he decided to get them married instead of becoming enraged.
The woman pleaded with her husband to let her be with her lover. According to police, he agreed and got them married.
After obtaining consent from both families, the man took his wife and her lover to a local temple and got them married.
He then sent the newlyweds away on the motorcycle Akash had arrived on.
A similar incident happened in Bihar where a man sacrificed his marriage by arranging for his wife of seven years to get married to her lover.
It was reported that Sapna Kumari was married to Uttam Mandal. The pair had been married for seven years.
Their relationship was good until a relative of Uttam met Sapna.
According to family members, Sapna and the young man, named Raju Kumar, took a liking for one another and the pair ended up getting into an illicit relationship.
The affair went on for a while before Uttam found out.
When he found out, he was immediately against it.
But when he realised his efforts to save his marriage were in vain, he accepted his wife’s relationship and got them married.
