For Ben Indra, fame was not something he set out to achieve. It was simply a by-product of his marriage to Anna Faris. The pair remained together for half a decade and called things off citing irreconcilable differences. And while many fans were shocked by the divorce, many saw it coming a long way. After all, Faris’s career was heading to the very top, and Indra’s career was floundering at the very best. The divide ended up becoming too great for the pair to sustain and Faris finally decided to call things off in 2008. Since the divorce, Indra has vanished from the media and leads a grounded life.
