Bollywood and controversy are like Siamese twins which just can't go separate. Bollywood has always been one of the most glamorous and media favourite industry for both good and necessarily 'not so good' reasons. However, it's mostly the 'not so good' part of Bollywood stars that hogs the limelight. Bollywood celebs have seen it all from charges of drug abuse to rapes and even killing people. Let's have a look on to a list of Bollywood stars who have garnered huge publicity from time to time, of course in the other way.
To talk about controversy in Bollywood, the first name has to be none other than our very own Sallu Bhai. Salman Khan got into his first big controversy in 1998 by hunting an endangered Chinkara, following which he was arrested but later released on bail. But Sallu bhai could not resist himself for long from getting into another tilt and got his speeding car dashed over a footpath where some homeless people were sleeping. This incident left one dead and three injured and Salman was charged with hit and run case, the trial of which is still in process. Salman also was a hot topic for his break up with Aishwarya Rai and his alleged harassment on the blue eyed lady.
Saif Ali Khan
The second name to be marked in the list has to be Saif Ali Khan who actually happens to be the latest controversial star in Bollywood for allegedly assaulting a NRI businessman and his father, the trial of which has resumed freshly. The case belongs to the year 2012 when the nawab star along with his friends and wife Kareena Kapoor engaged into a scuffle with an NRI man at the Taj hotel and allegedly smashed the businessman's nose. The NRI later filed a case of assault following which Saif and his three male friends were arrested but later released on bail, however the case being recently resumed, the star is again making space in media content. Also to be mentioned, Saif was also accused in the same Chinkara hunting case for allegedly being an accomplice of Salman in the act.
Munnabhai Sanjay Dutt is another very controversial name in the industry with his alleged links with the underworld 'Bhais'. During the Mumbai blasts in 1993, Sanjay Dutt was arrested for possessing illegal weapons under the Act of Terrorist and Disruptive Activities. Sanju bhai is currently behind the bars with five years imprisonment been sentenced. Earlier Sanjay Dutt already served 18 months in jail for the same case. Apart from this case, Sanjay Dutt was also ill-famed for his drug addiction for almost 10 years, later however he recovered after rigorous treatment.
Shahrukh Khan also could not miss from being included in the series of controversial actors when he was found misbehaving with a security official at Wankhede Stadium during 2012 IPL matches. SRK allegedly used some slang words on the official which resulted in five years ban on the star entering the stadium. Before that King Khan also was alleged of slapping choreographer Farah Khan's husband Shrish Kunder at a party. It was reported that Kunder was drunk and was following Shahrukh everywhere in the party, owing to which the star got irritated and slapped Kunder. The scuffle was however later resolved when Farah Khan came into the scene and controlled the situation.
Shiney Ahuja may not be a very popular name in Bollywood but this actor made his mark in the headlines with some really serious charges of raping his house-maid in the year 2009. The maid filed an FIR alleging that the actor raped her while she was alone with Shiney in the house. However, the case later had a twist when the same maid strangely took her words back saying such an incident never happened and Shiney was out on bail.
Now to shift our focus towards the divas of Bollywood who also registered their names in one or the other controversies in the recent past. Our bubly Preity Zinta was in much talks for her alleged affair with Shekhar Kapur when Kapur's ex-wife Suchitra Krishnamurthy alleged Preity to be the reason behind their divorce. However, the actress clearly denied the allegations. Preity was also dragged in the Salman-Aishwarya phone conversation scandal, following which Preity filed a defamation case against a newspaper for allegedly publishing false information about the dimple-cheeked actress.
Kareena Kapoor was in the news for her leaked kissing video with then boyfriend Shahid Kapoor which claimed much criticism on the actress for it being supposed to be a publicity stunt. Bebo was also linked with Hrithik Roshan as there were rumours of Kareena having an affair with the junior Roshan, however both Hrithik and Kareena never confessed about the alleged affair.
Shilpa Shetty made it into this list with her alleged racist comments in the British reality TV show 'Big Brother' which became a topic of discussion across India and UK. Later Shilpa again got into another controversy when Hollywood star Richard Gere openly kissed the actress.
Actress Riya Sen became a hot topic of gossip with a leaked love making MMS of the actress with former boyfriend Ashmit Patel. The video got viral which then created a lot of hullabaloo in the industry.
