Hilarious to see people trying to equate Aditya's mistake of bigamy with that of Malini who is now an unrepentant rapist, serial thief, wannabe human trafficker, pathological liar and all round psycho. Aditya atleast has admitted his mistakes and made a sincere attempt to atone unlike shameless Malini.

Aditya-Imlie-Malini case is one of BIGAMY and not EMA. But this doesn't make it any better. Aditya's crimes and cowardly acts can't be whitewashed by saying that he married Imlie first. It's like saying that he can first have Malini but if he wants Imlie later,it's not wrong BCOZ SHE IS HIS WIFE. So if Malini is a criminal,so is Aditya!

Okay this article is ridiculous and label incorrectly. Aditya is guilty of Polygamy, which mean being married to more then one woman not EMA. Vanraj is disgusting he's literally the definition of EMA, sleeping another woman while married for 9 years. Palkhi is married and lusting after her married brother in-law isn't EMA. Fateh is a cheater and liar. And if you're going add a show that's not on air anymore, then the article should've been Title differently about ITV shows that tackles EMA

U forgot to mention Bepannaah. Aditya's wife Pooja was cheating on him with Zoya's husband Yash. Both were cheating on their spouses and Pooja even got pregnant with Yash's baby. This was another show like Silsila that glorified EMA and blamed the real victims.

The title montage of Imlie that plays before every episode literally shows that Adi-Imlie were married, and still people want to claim it was an EMA? lol it doesn't even require that much "research", just basic observation. But I guess even that is too hard for IF waale right now? lol

Adi imlie Malini triangle is the case of bigamy and not EMA. Please check your facts before posting any article.

Adi-Imlie-Malini triangle is the case of bigamy & not EMA. Please at least go through the synopsis of the show if you cannot be bothered about watching the shows that you are actually making an article on. This is basic research.

How is Imlie a story of EMA, he is married to both of them - while I agree it is a bigamy story, there was no EMA
