Grab your popcorn as we bring to you some of the most controversial episodes of the Bollywood world of 2017.

Bollywood has been courting controversies this year! From the infamous banter between Kangana Ranaut
and Hrithik Roshan to the protests against Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati, the year-end leaves us with a
lot of apprehensions.

Here’s a look at some of the Bollywood controversies that made headlines this year:

Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut spat:


Hrithik and Kangana triggered media attention when they slapped legal notices on each other in 2016.
And this year, Kangana was seen elaborating on her alleged affair with the actor on various occassions
and Hrithik Roshan did not hold back either. And the infamous spat never concluded!

Milind Soman’s young girlfriend:

51-year-old supermodel Milind Soman was trolled relentlessly for dating an “18-year-old” air hostess,
Ankita Konwar. Although Ankita’s age is not yet revealed, yet the gulf of gap between their ages grabbed
a lot of attention and ended with Milind being tagged a “paedophile” by some.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s autobiography:

The ex-lover of Nawazuddin, Niharika Singh, accused him of painting an unflattering image of her in his
book, “An Ordinary Life”. She said: “when he paints me as a woman in fur enticing him into her bedroom
with candles, or desperately calling him and mailing other women on his behalf, I can only laugh.” He
had to withdraw his book after a complaint filed by Niharika.

Mira Rajput’s comparing her child to a puppy:

The young wife of Shahid Kapoor left many women seething in anger with her comment “I love being at
home, I love being a mother to my child. I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush
off to work. Why did I have her? She’s not a puppy. I want to be there for her as a mother.”

Sonu Nigam shaving his head:

Sonu Nigam posted a couple of tweets where he expressed his anger towards Azaan (Muslim’s calling out
for prayers) played on loudspeakers. To which, a fatwa was issued against him and he had to shave off his

Bipasha Basu’s condom ad:

Bipashu Basu and husband Karan Grover invited the wrath of twitteratis by endorsing a condom brand.
To which the bold actress responded, “The idea is to create awareness on the subject; it’s the need of the
hour. I am doing no wrong by endorsing condoms.”


This list would have been incomplete without a mention of the most vandalised movie of the year,
“Padmavati”. This Sanjay Leela Bansali movie is still caught in a maze of controversies for an alleged
dream sequence between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji. The Rajput Karni Sena threatened to chop
off Deepika Padukone’s nose if the movie gets released.
