Bollywood seems incomplete without controversies. An actor, free from controversies is like a lake without water or like a desert without sand. Whether big or small, every star is surrounded by some or the other scandalous story. Though most actors don't like getting involved in gossips, it's hard to stay away from it.
The birth of every other controversy has some base. In a nation like India, where half the population are crazy about the Bollywood industry, it gets really easy for any star to boost up the hype with small controversies. Some controversies are certainly genuine, while some are made-up and hyped without any base.
We present here the list of those top-notch Bollywood stars, who have got embroiled into several controversies. Whom do you think amongst them could be defined as the King or Queen of controversies?
Once upon a time, it looked like Salman Khan and controversies are made for each other. Say it his 2002 hit and run case, his involvement in hunting an endangered species, the Chinkara (2006), his alleged misbehaviour with his girlfriends or his purported underworld links, Salman had always hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
She's the most beautiful lady on this earth. That doesn't stop Ash from getting surrounded by controversies. The actress too has a long list of rumoured scandalous stories. Aishwarya has been under the media scanner for her personal affairs. In 2010, Ash had hit the headlines over her skin lightening controversy for the Elle magazine. Recently, Aishwarya became the hot controversial topic for her weight gain post pregnancy.
Saif Ali Khan
The Chhotte Nawaab is generally known for his mild behaviour. But his recent high-profile fight with an NRI at the Taj Hotel has changed our perception. Well, Saif has a short history of scandals also. In 2008, a case was reported to have manhandled a photojournalist in Patiala during the filming of Love Aaj Kal. In 1998, Saif, along with Salman Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam, was charged with poaching two blackbucks in Kankani during the shooting of their film Hum Saath Saath Hain. But the charges were dropped soon after Khan was acquitted.
From the Salman Khan controversial tape to IPL scandal, Preity Zinta is another actress, who have been a victim of hard-hitting controversial stories.
