Love sees no boundaries and can make you do anything for staying with your partner. There are some Bollywood actresses who have proved their love for their better half by converting their religion. For example, Nargis Dutt who married veteran actor Sunil Dutt converted to Hinduism before tying the knot. Although they form a classic example of a Hindu and Muslim wedding, Nargis had to convert to a Hindu to tie the knot with Sunil. Her name was changed to Nirmala Dutt.

Another Bollywood actress who converted her religion for love is the gorgeous Bengali beauty Sharmila Tagore. When Sharmila Tagore married late Nawab Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, she converted to Islam. She also took a new name as Begum Ayesha Sultana during the conversion. Although there were problems in their families, they overcame the hurdles and tied the knot. Sharmila's first daughter-in-law, Amrita Singh converted to Islam to marry Saif Ali Khan. However, her second daughter-in-law Kareena Kapoor did not convert to Islam to when she became the second wife of Saif Ali Khan.

Other actresses like Nagma and Ayesha Takia also converted their religion. While Nagma did for the love for Jesus Christ by converting to Christianity, Ayesha who was born to a Hindu father and Anglo-Indian mother converted to Islam to get married to Farhan.
