Here are the top 20 controversial comments made by our favourite Bollywood stars over the years till 2020. So, what are you waiting for? Let's dig in.
Though Bollywood celebrities are trained to give measured answers, one way or the other they get entangled with controversies because of their any weird statements or misspoken debatable comments. Here are the few, read on.
One of the most controversial actresses is Kangana Ranaut. She has been known for her comments and statements. Recently she has been making the headlines with her comments since Sushant Singh Rajput's sudden demise. When Urmila Matondkar got a BJP ticket, she said "Even Urmila is a soft porn star. She is not known for her acting for sure, what is she known for? For doing soft porns right. If she could get a ticket, why wouldn't I get a ticket?"
She has also commented on the farmers' protest and said that the farmers protesting against the union government for passing controversial bills are 'terrorists'.
Kedarnath Actress, Sara Ali Khan, daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh gave a tip which turned into controversy. In a Barkha Dutt interview, she said, "If you wanna be tan, just put on some bronzer, and if you wanna be fair, put on some powder".
Sonam Kapoor once allegedly said that Aishwarya caters the older generation as they both worked for the same brand, Loreal and Sonam thought she is the face for the younger lot. Aish didn't take it lightly, and they got into a cold war, when Sonam said, "Ash has worked with my dad so I have to call her aunty na?
When Priyanka Chopra cancelled her contract with Salman Khan for their film Bharat because she prioritised her personal life, Salman was hurt and angry and said, "She has worked all her life so hard, and when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped the film and got married. Hats off! Usually, people leave their husbands for a film like this." This got him into trouble with Priyanka.
Kangana had a problem with Deepika's coming out talking about her mental health issues too. She said, "If @deepikapadukone says she suddenly got depressed for a break up which happened 10 years ago, we believe her so give me and Sushant same respect if I say I am not mentally ill or if Sushant's father says he wasn't mentally ill believe us also na. Why you forcing illness on us".
Mahesh Bhatt once spurted that if Pooja Bhatt was not her daughter, he would have loved to marry her. WHAT!?
Do you know when Shahid Kapoor was asked about working with his ex-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor again what he said? He said, "I would like to work with her again. I feel that as an actor if my producer wants me to romance with a cow or a buffalo also, I'll do it because that's my job."
When Salman Khan was shooting for Sultan, he said: "When I used to walk out of that ring, it used to be actually like a raped woman walking out." And with this statement, he had to face a lot of backlash from the netizens.
When Kangana Ranaut called out Taapsee Pannu as B-grade actress, Taapsee replied, "My opinion not matching yours doesn't make me wrong. The hypocrisy was exposed when you yourself are fighting for outsiders and simultaneously pulling down other outsiders."
Karan Johar is another celeb who get into trouble very often because of what he utters. Once he bitched about Priyanka Chopra, he said, "Using their hired PR machinery and hiding behind so-called "friends" to get news into tabloids is nothing but spineless and lame. Some people need to wake up and smell the KOFFEE!!! Get a reality check before its too late!!! Grow up!!! and don't mess with goodness...."
Neha Dhupia once said that two things sell in Bollywood, one is Shah Rukh Khan and sex.
There was a cold war between Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra when Kareena said that her film Heroine would be more successful than PeeCee's Fashion. Priyanka said, "Well, I guess if you don't have one (National Award) then, it's just sour grapes, you know. What do I say?" Ah, these catfights.
Anushka Sharma had also got entangled herself in a controversial situation when she said talking about Deepika, "I am Kashyap's and Hirani's choice. She is Ayan's and whosoever's. I never pull anybody down. That makes me nice, right?"
When Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzarish released, this is how Salman Khan reacted, "Arre, usme toh makhi udd rahi thi, lekin koi machhar bhi nahi gaya dekhne. Arre, koi kutta bhi nahin gaya".
Here's what Kangana said to Karan Johar, "In my biopic, you'll play that stereotypical Bollywood biggie who is snooty and completely intolerant of outsiders. The flagbearer of nepotism".
Bipasa Basu once made some weird comments about Ameesha Patel, she said, "Ameesha doesn't have the physical attributes to carry a film like Jism, honestly. Not just your body, you have to have a very strong personality. And I think she's too petite, too small… her whole frame is wrong".
Kangana and Hrithik's equation was a very controversial one. In Aap ki Adalat Kangana uttered these things about Hrithik Roshan, "He told me that he would never accept me publicly and the way things were in his family, he would never leave his wife. So, I told him to leave me but he didn't want to do that either. This was the reason I didn't want to do Krrish 3 because when you are not ready to marry me, then I don't want anything with you. But he persuaded me for four months to sign Krrish 3".
Not only Vivek Oberoi, but even Emraan Hashmi also called Aishwarya Rai a plastic.
Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan never had a good bond, and Aamir once took his blog to say, "Shah Rukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more I can ask for?...Shah Rukh is once again begging for my attention, so let me get me get back to him. He is smelling too much. I think he needs a bath. Heel Boy, heel".
