Being true desis, Bollywood is something we all relate to. We all have our Raj or Simran and wish to have a love story as theirs. Weather it is the B-town fashion trends, or the SRK-Sallu cold war, the cat fights or the break/link ups or the saucy dance numbers …B-town caters to all of it. Be it the latkas and jhatkas of your favourite actress, or 8-pack abs of your favourite hero, these hotties get you drooling everytime they’re spotted. But everything doesn’t go well in this paradise. Here are top 10 Bollywood controversies you may not be aware of:
4. Aee bhaai..tune pappi kyun lee??
Remember the “oh jezus …media ko bulao…” drama queen? Who can forget the spectacle after Mika’s birthday party where Rakhi Sawant was “forcefully” kissed by none other than our Punjabi munda Mika Singh. The incident was heavily reported with protests against violation of woman’s rights.
5. Hum tum or bhai!
India’s heartthrob Salmaan Khan and Miss Universe Aishwarya Rai found themselves all over the paper for their alleged love affair. Rumours have it that Aish broke up with Salmaan without his knowledge and did not return his calls ending our drunk dabanng on her doorstep, banging doors, shouting and creating a scene the entire night. There was news of Aishwarya being beaten up because of her affair with debutant Vivek Obrei who later became a victim to threat calls by the bhai himself.
The relationship was finally called off…and so was Vivek Oberoi’s acting career…phew!!
6.Shiney Ahuja Rape Case
The entire B-town was in shock when actor-director Shiney Ahuja was arrested for molesting his maid. The actor was summoned 7 years of prison for raping her maid. Although there were a lot of shocking developments in the case where the maid changed her statement and refused to be raped by the actor.
7. The famous Sharmila Tagore controversy.
It was in 1967,when Bollywood was about to witness something it had never seen. When Sharmila Tagore walked into the studio of photographer Dhiraj Chawda, he asked her what was she going to wear for the shoot and Sharmila Tagore just took out something from her purse. What resulted?
Sharmila Tagore was the first-ever Indian actress to pose in a bikini for a magazine cover. The pictures created a stir when the issue hit the stands on August 19, 1966. The issue even raised questions in the Parliament.
8. Mere hubby ko chanta kyun mara.
Our much-loved SRK isn’t very patient when it comes to losing his cool. Scorpion much? ;). The incident so happened that SRK and sirish kunder were invited to sanjay dutt’s A-listed party at Juhu. After being stalked by Kunder right through the party, Khan as he was about to leave, lost his cool and allegedly pinned him onto a sofa and slapped him. This lead to the break-up of the famous actor-producer duo, following zilch conversation and ample amount of awkwardness between them. The fight did carry on for a long time, but no FIR was filled.
9. Jiah Khan’s Suicide
The suicide of the Ghajini actress was shocking, to say the least, but the suicide notes that followed in quick succession lent an even greater air of mystery to the proceedings when her alleged boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi was accused and there were rumours of abortion.
10. Saif’s wild Safari
Saif Ali Khan went to have a quiet dinner with his friends at Wasabi in Taj Mahal hotel. But it was not to be as he ended up in a scuffle with Iqbal Sharma. By the end of it, Iqbal had a bloody nose and Saif a torn shirt! Saif was arrested for allegedly punching the NRI businessman and his relative after the latter told the actor’s gang to keep the noise level down. The argument became ugly and took the face of a brutal fight. However, Saif was immediately bailed.
