Deepika Padukone is one of the beloved actresses of B- town for her acting to dressing sense. She has completed a decade in Bollywood and she is not new to controversies. Her movie ‘Padmaavat’ created numerous controversies before its release as it received a lot of backlashes from a section of the audience including Karni Sena as they believed their queen ‘Padmavati’ was portrayed in an inappropriate manner. Karni Sena threatened Deepika of chopping her nose if they don’t stop the release of the film. Even they allegedly destroyed the set of the shooting area. After two months of the struggle, the movie was finally released named as ‘Padmaavat’. After the release of this film, it got massive success on the box office. Deepika Padukone was praised for her acting and dedication. It seems she got the unachieved fame after this controversy. Another controversy arose when Deepika Padukone joined the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students to support them and condemn the attack on JNU students without knowing the real cause of it. She was in the city to promote her movie ‘Chhapaak’. Very few supported her, while many called it was a promotional stunt and accused her for being an anti-national to stand with JNU student without knowing the real cause of it. Inspite of these controversies, she became more popular worldwide though the movie couldn’t make a super bumper box office collection due to the controversies around the promotional activity.

A post shared by Alia Bhatt ☀️ (@aliaabhatt)

When Alia Bhatt entered into the glamorous world of Bollywood, she was allegedly linked-up to many of her co-actors, whether Varun Dhawan or Siddharth Malhotra or Arjun Kapoor. The epic controversy was when she attended Karan Johar’s famous show ‘Koffee with Karan’ where Karan asked her who is the President of India, to which she answered “Prithviraj Chauhan”. It was hilarious to watch her making this unexpected goof-up. Soon this incident got viral everywhere and people trolled her for her foolish reply. It is said that the unexpected and hilarious mistake by Alia turned out to be a boon for her as she picked-up mileage from this incident and embarrassingly earned the tag of being a “beauty without brain” in the industry. Inspite of these moments, she acted in the movies which became very much a hit.

It is during the filming of his movie ‘Rockstar’ when people allegedly saw waving of a Tibet flag in the background of the movie’s song titled ‘Sadda Haq’. Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) told Imtiaz Ali to blur the flag, but the director allegedly didn’t do that, and what happened was expected i.e. the Tibetans protested against this song. The protest and controversies around it didn’t really affect the box office collection of the movie as after the release of ‘Rockstar’, the news broke that it got a massive box office success and made Ranbir Kapoor a superstar.

Vicky Kaushal started his career as a child actor, and his hard work acted as a catalyst for his success as he made it to the protagonist’s role in many following movies. Though he started as a child actor, he did not have a backing of any Bollywood biggie like other star kids like Alia Bhatt, Sara Ali Khan, Jahnvi Kapoor, etc. as he was not a star kid. There are several controversies reserved in the name of Vicky Kaushal. As per report, his dialogue in the 2019 released movie ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ “Apni 72 hooron ko hamara salaam bolna! Kehna dawaat par intezar karein, aaj bahut saare mehman bhejne wale hain.” received backlash from a section of the society and a minority community after which it was edited and presented in the movie.
