As far as I know Bigamy is a crime in India. But, can someone please clarify me the Muslim marriage laws...in Qubool hai it's shown that Rashid is married to both Dilshad and Shireen...isn't a divorce required to marry a second time or its allowed ?
Isn't it considered as bigamy?

Can someone please explain this ?

I'm going to answer this as it pertains to law and not necessarily any one religion...
 
The following info is from wikipedia...
 
 
 
Polygamy in India
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 

Polygamy is illegal in India for Hindus and other religious groups under the Hindu marriage Act. It remains legal for Muslims under the terms of The Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act of 1937, as interpreted by the All India Muslim Personal Law Board" According to the 1961 census (the last census to record such data), polygamy was actually less prevalent among Indian Muslims (5.7%) than among several other religious groups.[1] Incidence was highest among Adivasis (15.25%) and Buddhists (7.9%); Hindus, by comparison, had an incidence of 5.8%.[2][3] Although there are movements to end polygamy,[4] many muslims seek to preserve the practice.[5]

 
 
In muslim law...a man is permitted to maintain a maximum of 4 wives at the same time.
