Eight Bollywood stars were caught red-handed, tarnishing their reputation.
Mandakini: After leaked pictures of Mandakini, famous for the film “Ram Teri Ganga Maili,” alongside gangster Dawood Ibrahim, rumors of their link-up started circulating. Due to her association with a gangster, Mandakini faced difficulties in the film industry. Even offering her small roles became a challenge, and her comeback to the film world was met with disappointment.
Raj Kundra: Raj Kundra was arrested by the Mumbai Crime Branch for his involvement in the production of pornographic films. His wife, Shilpa Shetty, also faced career setbacks due to the allegations. Raj Kundra was sent on police remand until July 23, 2021. He was producing porn films for a foreign app, and the shootings took place in Mumbai’s Mad Island area. Shilpa Shetty’s film “Hungama 2” was adversely affected by Raj Kundra’s controversy, resulting in its failure at the box office.
Shakti Kapoor: During a sting operation in 2005, Shakti Kapoor faced a major backlash. He made inappropriate remarks to a TV reporter, saying, “If you want to enter the film industry, you’ll have to do what I ask and give you love.” This incident led to severe criticism and negatively impacted Shradha Kapoor’s career.
Sanjay Dutt: Sanjay Dutt was arrested in 1993 for his involvement in the Mumbai blast case. Several items, including an AK-56 rifle, were recovered from his residence. He faced jail time and went through multiple court hearings in relation to this case.
Shiney Ahuja: In 2011, Shiney Ahuja was accused of rape by his maid. After being found guilty, he received a seven-year prison time. In 2015, he made a small comeback with the film “Welcome Back,” but it failed to resonate with the audience. Shiney Ahuja’s film career was severely affected by this incident.
Vijay Raaz: During the shooting of the film “Deewane Huye Paagal” in 2005, Abu Dhabi police caught Vijay Raaz with drugs. Since then, Vijay Raaz has had fewer appearances in films. Being caught in a drug-related case made it challenging for him to find work in the film industry.
Shweta Basu Prasad: In 2014, Shweta Basu Prasad was caught in a prostitution racket. The police caught her red-handed at a hotel in Hyderabad. She was later sent to a rehabilitation center. Although Shweta is now away from such controversies and focusing on her acting career, she still lags behind in terms of popularity.
Aman Verma: Aman Verma had earned a good name in the television industry. However, a sting operation shattered his world. He was caught in a sting operation where he was caught demanding sexual favors from a girl under the pretext of offering her work. This incident caused a major uproar and significantly affected his reputation. Fardeen Khan: In 2001, Fardeen Khan was caught buying cocaine. He was arrested in Juhu, Mumbai. Prior to this incident, Fardeen Khan enjoyed popularity, but when his name came up in this case, the industry distanced itself from him, and he received a lot of negative publicity.
