A famous fight between her ex-husband and TV host Nadia Khan was aired on Geo TV. Noor Bukhari told Dunya News later that her husband Vikram had lied to her that he had converted to Islam prior to their marriage. She said when she realized that Vikram was still non-Muslim, she tried her best to convert him. But he refused and then she decided to file for divorce from him.[5]

She had then married film producer/director Farooq Mengal but separated from him four months later and eventually divorced him as well.[6] Then Noor Bukhari married Awn Chaudhry, the personal secretary of Cricketer-Turned Politician Imran Khan, in 2012 and this was her third marriage. They got divorced in same year. In June 2015, it was reported that she and a fellow actor Wali Hamid Ali Khan (son of renowned classical singer Hamid Ali Khan) are married now. This was her fourth marriage. Unfortunately, in March 2017 she reported in her official blog that this marriage has also failed and resulted in a divorce.[7][8]
