Bollywood Scandals: Controversies of the Court create ripples and steal the spotlight-welcome to Bollywood! B-town is inconspicuous with its appreciation for dispute. There’s not a single star out there who, at least once in their career, hasn’t stirred a storm or created headlines for all the wrong reasons. Our favourite Bollywood stars continue to stay in the news with things they do and say, whether it’s their personal life, the movies they do, or the words they choose to use. While affairs and secret wars in Tinsel Town are not very rare, some actors have taken controversy a bit higher and have given us enough reasons to think about them for years to come.
Bollywood Scandals Of All Times, Here are some of the most significant controversies of Bollywood
Bipasha Basu and politician Amar Singh
Hello! Who’s Speaking? Bips?
In 2011, for all the wrong reasons, a leaked phone recording made headlines between Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu and politician Amar Singh. A woman (the actress allegedly) is calling Singh and is arranging a meeting soon. The politician, who is addressing her as “Bips,” thanks her for reminding him of “an old man.” When the woman remarks that “age doesn’t matter,” the former leader of the Samajwadi Party quips that “age matters between the thighs.” When the tapes were released to the audience, a furious Bipasha denied all the accusations and challenged everyone to show that Singh is talking dirty to her in the recordings.
Shiney Ahuja Scandal
Actor Shiney Ahuja had already gained the status of celebrity in Tinsel Town in 2009. With Hazaron Khwahishen Aisi, he won the Filmfare and received a series of hits such as Woh Lamhe, Bhool Bhulaiya, Life In A Metro and Gangster.

His career hit a major roadblock when he was accused of rape by his teenage maid. Although Ahuja’s wife and family claimed he had been framed, it proved that he was guilty of circumstantial evidence such as medical reports, bloodstains on the bedsheet, semen on curtains, and severe scratches on Ahuja’s hands. The maid later withdrew the charges in court, however, and said the s*x was consensual. The actor was sentenced to seven years in prison despite this.

The Big Bad Couch In Bollywood
A popular news channel conducting a casting couch sting operation in March 2005 was caught on the wrong foot by actor and host Aman Verma. The channel’s call recordings showed how the actor persuaded a journalist (disguised as a fighting actor and model) to visit him in his apartment on the pretext of offering her roles in a film. The videotapes that follow show him asking the woman to get up, turn around, and get closer.
Payal Rohtagi And Dibakar Banerjee Scandal
Actress Payal Rohtagi accused the director of movies like Love, S#x or Dhokha, and Oye Lucky, Dibakar Banerjee! Lucky Oye! To make s#xual advances against her. While auditioning for one of his movies, Payal disclosed how her relationship with the director turned sour. Payal felt very low after an upsetting audition in which she had to play the role of a woman who had lost her husband, so Dibakar offered her in her apartment to visit her. The conversation turned to the character and her weight, and Payal was asked by Dibakar to lift her top and bare her stomach. The actress was so furious that she was telling him to leave.
Preeti Jain And Madhur Bhandarkar
Model Preeti Jain accused Madhur Bhandarkar of repeatedly raping her for five years on the pretext of marriage and a part in one of his films in 2004. Preeti had numerous text messages as evidence that the boss asked her for s#xual favours. The turn in the story came a year ago when Preeti hired a gangster to kill Bhandarkar and paid him 75,000. But, when the gangster failed to complete the mission, things turned south, and Preeti demanded her money back.
Shahid Kapoor And Kareena Kapoor
As former lovers Shahid Kapoor’s MMS and Kareena Kapoor’s lip-locking in a Mumbai restaurant began to do the web rounds, it became one of the most talked-about Bollywood scandals. Although both actors insisted that the video was fake and never kissed in public, the internet had the dose of gossip it wanted!
Love, Lust And A Scandal
Bengali siren Riya Sen and her ex-beau ASMIT Patel were in the midst of a storm when a couple’s steamy video appeared on the internet at their most intimate moments. While Ashmit claimed the footage was real, in the video, Riya claimed it was her lookalike. Before the MMS went viral, the couple had just broken up, and several news reports suggested it was ASMIT who was leaking the video for ads.
The Infamous Kiss
The “Queen” And Her Scandalous Affair
The Kangana Ranaut-Aditya Pancholi affair began when the Manikarnika actress was still struggling to make it big in the industry, one of Bollywood’s most scandalous affairs. According to Kangana, she was held under house arrest, humiliated and raped by Pancholi, who was her “father’s age.” Finally, she had to jump out of the window of her apartment to avoid his wrath. He did everything to help a “penniless” Kangana, however, according to Aditya, who was “totally in love” with her and even built a house for her, but she cheated him with another star. This has become one of the biggest scandals in Bollywood.
The Dirty Picture Of Bollywood And Some Publicity
Pakistani actress Veena Malik, who also appeared on Big Boss 4, found herself in the centre of a controversy when he and costar Rajan Verma’s 44-second MMS went viral on the internet. Kissing, cuddling, and becoming intimate were seen in the duo. Veena said the video was a scene from the B-grade film starring Veena and Rajan. Others even mentioned the video was just an advertising gimmick released for the promotion of the film.
Bollywood’s Bad Guy And A S#x Scandal
Shakti Kapoor, the favourite villain of Bollywood, was involved in an s*x scandal when he was caught on camera demanding s*xual favours from an aspiring actress. In the video, Kapoor said, “I want to love you… and if you want to get into this row, you have to do what I’m doing.” He also named three of the industry’s top actresses, suggesting they only had their share of fame because they were sleeping with producers and directors. Shakti Kapoor said after the tapes had been broadcast that the tapes had been tampered with, and he only went to meet the girl when she threatened suicide.
Abhishek Bachchan – Jhanvi Kapoor Scandal
When Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan married Bollywood’s couple of the moment in 2007, there was much bigger news than their star-studded marriage. A model cum actress named Jhanvi Kapoor reported that in 2006, in the presence of a few relatives, Junior Bachchan had married her in a temple.
Ironically, in Abhishek’s Dus Bahane song, Ms Kapoor was one of the dancers. The starlet attempted to cut her wrist outside Bachchan’s residence in a very Bollywood-like drama. She failed to produce pictures of her alleged wedding with the star, however, and named the friends she believed to be part of Bachchan’s wedding.
