Controversies of Bollywood in 2019
Well, Bollywood just doesn’t produce the largest number of films but also the largest number of controversies tbh. and 2019 hasn’t been alien from it as well. It all started from the #MeToo campaign and it is still continuing as netizens are busy trolling Priyanka Chopra for smoking a cigarette on her birthday! What even?! Have a look!
Tanushree Dutta And Nana Patekar’s Brawl : Well, one has to give credit where it is due and Tanushree Dutta must be lauded for coming out & accusing Nana Patekar for what he did to her years back on the sets of Horn Okay Please. She told everyone how she was inappropriately touched, sexually molested and when she said no for any such further activities, she was attacked while she was trying to head back home in her car with her family.
The Koffee With Karan Debacle : It all went down to the limit when this special episode featuring cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul was forced to be taken off from the streaming service due to the countless controversies surrounding it. On the famous chat-show, Hardik crossed the line and said some really disturbing and regressive statements about women which shamed his image to a grave state!
Priyanka Chopra Leaves Bharat, Salman Khan Takes Katrina Kaif : It was all pretty in paradise till Priyanka Chopra Jonas went back to the US to bring in her special day as she got married to the singer-actor and the love of her life, Nick Jonas. In the process, she had to say no to Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar’s film Bharat. This did not go down well with Khan as he might have took it on his ego and bought in Katrina Kaif for PC’s replacement. Well, she was getting married after all! Only if Salman knew the importance of getting married in life!
Zaira Wasim And Her Bye Bye To Bollywood : Owing to personal reasons, the Dangal fame actress, Zaira Wasim decided to quit acting & Bollywood and she wrote a long heartfelt post about why her religion and several other reasons which are coming on her way to continue with acting and Islam was one of the many. It did not go down with many celebs like Raveena Tandon etc and took to Twitter to express the same while a few supported Zaira for the gutsy step. Well, it bottom down to one person about what she wants to do in her life or not and that is Zaira so let her decide!
Vivek Oberoi As Narendra Modi : As soon as we saw the 1st look of Vivek Oberoi as the nation’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it was quite weird and cringe-worthy at the same time. The talented actor did not fit in well as Modi and it did not come naturally to him. Not just this, the film’s release was also stalled as it was releasing during elections and it clearly proved that it is a propaganda film. And yes, the audience also did not love the film. All said and done, the film was a dud and a controversy-recipe.
Hina Khan At Cannes : To say the least, Hina Khan did stun all of us at the Cannes Film Festival and she looked like a true diva. Strutting on the red-carpet with oozing confidence and power-dressing, Hina was in fact better than several leading B-Town ladies but as everyone is super opinionated in India, comments had to rush in. An editor of a leading magazine posted her photo on his Instagram story and compared her to someone at Chandivali studios and later, fro, several Bollywood celebs to the actors from the TV space came together to lend their support for Hina and bashed the editor for his hurtful statement.
Kangana Ranaut At The Wakhra Swag Launch : Things misfired at the Wakhra Swag launch when Kangana Ranaut expressed her disagreement with a journalist who had reportedly trolled the actress numerous times in relation to her last film, Manikarnika : The Queen Of Jhansi and it was almost legendary! She took his case left, right and center and did not stop no matter what! It led to a controversial fight between them and it also led to a ban on Ranaut by a few media houses who supported his statements. That whole 20 minute fiasco went viral for obvious reasons and again, Kangana was involved. Controversy’s favorite child much?
Priyanka Chopra Papped While Smoking : It suddenly became the headlines of all leading newspapers when a poor quality image clicked by paps emerged on the Internet which shows Priyanka Chopra Jonas smoking a cigarette while she was celebrating her 37th birthday on her personal yacht. Many netizens trolled her for being a wrong example as she is heavily looked upon while some mocked her by saying that her asthma won’t heal by smoking. Well, no one trolled Nick Jonas or PC’s mother Madhu Chopra for unknown reasons. May be they think smoking a cigar is classy?! Lame right!
Well, B-Town awaits many more such controversies to follow as 2019 is still not over and yeah, we are used to it. What do you think? Let us know in the comment-section below.
