Bollywood & Controversy
Controversy is a term deeply associated with every aspect of life; be it sports or Bollywood. When I speak about Bollywood, every controversy; be it good or bad brings extra business to the industry! Now, it became a trend to get into controversy for every film before being released into theatres.
Khan's and Controversy
The Khan's of Bollywood and the controversy are having deep bond of friendship. Controversy just loves to follow the Khans, be it SRK, Sallu Bhai or Aamir. In 2010 too we came across few controversies surrounding the top most Khans of Bollywood. Here is a synopsis of those cases.
Salman Khan in Controversy
It is a known fact that Salman Khan was the hot favorite of the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. However, he opted for Hrithik Roshan over Salman for his 2010 venture called "Gujarish". The movie got a luke response on box office. During one of the award function Salman commented on the movie by saying, "in the movie we have seen a mosquito flying but even a flies did not watch that movie!" This irritates both Sanjay and Hrithik.
Sharukh Khan in Controversy
This year SRK gets into a verbal fight with Shiv Sena party Supreemo, just before the release of his movie "My Name is Khan". SRK while commenting about IPL said that, Pakistani Cricketers should have been included in IPL. This irritates the "Shiv Sena". They demanded an apology from SRK. All said and done, but SRK was in no mood to bend before any political party. Shiv Sena warned SRK and did all the vandalism to stop the fans to watch the movie. But nothing works against SRK's magic and the movie got a good respond. Later it was said on the media that, all these are a part of publicity gimmick by SRK. The truth behind this is still a mystery!
Aamir Khan in Controversy
Aamir Khan's biggest hit of last year "3 Idiots got into controversy at the beginning of the year 2010. It is a well known fact that the story line of the movie is taken from the well known book "Five Point Some one" of Chetan Bhagat. However, no credit was given to this writer in the movie. Earlier this year Chetan accused Mr. Vidhu Vinod Chopra of plagiarism! However, the perfectionist Aamir Khan came into rescue of Vidhu Vinod Chopra through a press conference where he openly said that Chetan has nothing to do with the movie! Later we hear that Chetan Bhagat apologize to Aamir for this issue!
