Bollywood mein kuch ho na ho, masala hona chahiye. This statement is not just for Bollywood movies, but is applicable on actors' life as well.
In a country like ours, people follow Bollywood like they follow religion. And this is why everything that happens in the industry becomes gossip in the blink of an eye. From affairs to parties, from marriage to spats, there is nothing in Bollywood which is sheltered from the media. Being such a big actor and having n number of fans, makes every act of these stars controversial before they even know it.
Take these fights between the directors, singers and actors for instance, in no time these fights became the topic of gossip and many even turned into cold wars.
In 2016, singer Arijit Singh posted a lengthy apology on Facebook after he pulled a joke on Salman Khan at an award function. It is believed that this was the reason why Arijit Singh's version of 'Jag Ghoomeya' was dropped and replaced by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's version.
Recently, another buzz came in the limelight that the playback singer's track in a song in the upcoming film, Welcome To New York, which has a special appearance of Salman Khan, has been replaced.
The spat between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut was one of the most popular gossips of 2017.
It began when Kangana Ranaut addressed Hrithik as her silly-ex. In response, he sent her a legal notice demanding apology. And that is how the controversy started.
Nepotism has suddenly become the talk of the B-town. But do you know when and where did it come from?
It all began when Kangana Ranaut called Karan Johar 'the flag bearer of nepotism' on his popular chat show, Koffee with Karan. It was then that nepotism became a hot topic in B-town.
There is an old famous saying that "Ek myaan me do talwar nahi reh sakti." Well, the spat between directors Karan Johar and Ram Gopal Varma will remind of just that.
It began when Ram Gopal Varma expressed that he wants to remake Mani Ratnam's 'Raavan' with the title 'My Name Is Raavan'. It obviously was an indirect dig at Karan Johar's 'My Name Is Khan.'
Karan Johar replied by tweeting, "You have an amazing sense of humour Ramu! Never shows up in your films though."
The bold and gorgeous Kareena Kapoor Khan and Bipasha Basu were seen in a film together only once, in Ajnabee. According to reports, they did not get along even on the sets of the film. The tiff started over costumes. The two had a war of words and Kareena Kapoor reportedly called Bipasha Basu "Kaali Billi." And then on Koffee with Karan, she called her then then-boyfriend John Abraham "expressionless".
Akshay Kumar recently launched #PadManChallenge as a promotional event for his movie Padman. In the campaign, people held a pad and posted a picture with it on their social media accounts as a symbol to shun the stigma around menstruation. While celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma and many other embraced the challenge, comedian Mallika Dua, used her Instagram account to post her thoughts.
She wrote, "Always remember, each time you feel weak, each time you feel lesser than your equals, each time you feel you've been made to feel lesser for no reason and that the fight has just begun… When you feel society and the govt have not given you your due, hold up a sanitary pad and post a picture of it on Instagram. You will feel empowered. So empowered. Bye."
The most talked fight of Bollywood is the one between Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. It all began at Katrina Kaif's birthday party when Shah Rukh Khan passed a comment on Salman Khan's ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai. The comment angered Salman Khan and soon things started piling up.
Shah Rukh Khan punched and slapped Farah Khan's husband at a private party after the latter made a comment about Ra.One. He called the film a '150-crore firework frizzle' which hurt SRK.
The spat between Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi is among the most prolonged quarrels of Bollywood industry. And the reason is that they both dated Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Salman is reported to have drunk called Vivek Oberoi when he was dating Aishwarya Rai, to abuse and threaten to kill him. The buzz is Salman is the reason why Vivek has not been able to get good movie offers, despite apologising several times.
That's all, folks.
