Deepika Padukone’s saffron bikini in Besharam Rang

As soon as the Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer Pathaan’s song Besharam Rang was released, it won kudos and love from the fans but also a lot of criticism from the BJP functionaries and right wing organisations.

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra said the green and saffron colours of the actors’ clothing, as well as the song’s lyrics and the movie’s title, all need to be fixed before the movie’s release in January 2023. Many other Hindu outfits staged protests across the country, demanding a ban on the film.

Ranveer Singh charged after his naked photoshoot

Ranveer Singh has previously been the subject of jokes because of his zany wardrobe choices, which frequently shock the eyeball.

But in September this year, he dropped every bit of them! The actor went buck naked for a photoshoot for PAPER magazine.

An FIR was filed against him in Mumbai and a number of social activists even launched a campaign to collect clothes for the actor.

IFFI jury chief Nadav Lapid and The Kashmir Files

The Kashmir Files, directed by Vivek Agnihotri, grabbed attention throughout the year. Israeli director and IFFI jury chair Nadav Lapid said the film was vulgar and propaganda, which sparked a heated discussion.

Lapid made several comments against the film during the closing ceremony of the 53rd IFFI, which sparked debate against him. Some defended him, while others accused him of being unsympathetic to the plight of Kashmiri Pandits.

Kaali Poster controversy

Leena Manimekalai, an Indian documentary maker, posted the poster she curated for her film Kaali, which kicked up a row. The depiction of Goddess Kali smoking a cigarette in this poster offended many people.

In addition to smoking, the poster showed the actress portraying Kali holding a trishul in one hand and the LGBTQ pride flag in the other. Many said that the Hindu deity was being disrespected and called for the filmmaker to face harsh punishment. After the outcry, the filmmaker was the target of numerous FIRs, but she stood her ground.

Jacqueline Fernandez, Nora Fatehi get ED summons

Bollywood actors Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi were summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the money laundering case launched against alleged conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.

Chandrashekhar was introduced to both actors by Bollywood actor Pinky Irani. In August, the ED’s Delhi office summoned Fatehi, and in September, the ED repeatedly recorded Fernandez’s statement for the case.

Richa Chadda’s Galwan moment

The Gangs of Wasseypur actor was the recipient of harsh criticism for her reply “Galwan says Hi” to a tweet quoting the Northern Command GOC-in-C saying the Indian Army was prepared to wrest back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Akshay Kumar was among the celebrities who criticised Richa Chadda for her comment. Veteran actor Prakash Raj, a Modi critic, defended her and denounced Akshay Kumar. She also faced backlash from Shiv Sena spokesperson Anand Dubey, who demanded stern action against the “anti-national” actor from Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde and Home Minister Amit Shah.

Sajid Khan in Bigg Boss 16 and #MeToo

In October 2021, the #MeToo movement converged on Bigg Boss Season 16 when Sajid Khan was listed as a participant.

Khan had been accused of sexually harassing nine women. Due to his nomination, actors Ali Fazal, Mandana Karimi, Sherlyn and Saloni Chopra, as well as singer Sona Mohapatra, all demanded that he be kicked off Bigg Boss. But Bigg Boss, as we know, thrives on any publicity, good, bad or the #MeToo kind.

Dhanush divorces Aishwarya Rajinikanth

Cinema is where romance and real-life love stories are brought to life, as seen in the Dhanush and Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s divorce.

Divorces and breakups occasionally make the news, though. The couple had two sons after their wedding in 2004. They requested that people respect their privacy when they announced their separation earlier this year on social media.
