Of blows and bashings
A lot many times stars have lost their poise to display an ugly and violent side to them... We count the slaps and punches while going down the memory lane...
While the brawl between Shah Rukh Khan and Shirish Kunder has already become national news, we take a look at some of the famous fights in B-Town that created huge buzz in the industry.
Bollywood stars who are at their best behaviour most often have lost their cool, too, on certain occasions and have got into ugly fights.
Salman Khan's famous fights with SRK, Vivek Oberoi and John Abraham
The bad boy of Bollywood, Salman Khan is notorious for losing his cool at the drop of a hat. He has got into verbal spats and brawls with co-stars, fans and even the media. His feuds with John Abraham and Vivek Oberoi have made headlines. At Katrina Kaif's birthday bash in 2008, Salman had his most infamous spat with Shah Rukh. And since then the two haven't seen eye-to-eye. Salman even fought with Bunty Walia at Maanayata Dutt's birthday party in 2011. Apart from getting into a fistfight with shutterbugs trying to click Katrina Kaif, he was also in the news recently for slapping a fan at Anil Kapoor's birthday party.
Shah Rukh Khan: SRK had a fall-out with his best friend Farah Khan before the making of Tees Maar Khan and there is now trouble brewing between him and Arjun Rampal too. However, the actor has rarely got into a brawl barring the latest incident with Shirish Kunder and a scuffle with producer Mozez Singh at Sanjay Kapoor's party last year.
Govinda: He slapped a fan on the sets of Money Hai to Honey Hai in 2008. According to the actor's secretary, the miscreant had been misbehaving with the staff and kicking the actor's chair in between shots.
Sanjay Dutt: Under the influence of alcohol, Sanjay Dutt lost his cool when his fans tried to click his pictures at a Mumbai hotel in 2005. Both the parties almost came to blows, before Sanju was whisked away.
Aditya Pancholi: Kangna Ranaut who had an alleged affair with him later accused him of physically abusing her. He had earlier been arrested for slapping a constable in 1996.
John Abraham: He lost his temper when some guys made a nasty pass at then girlfriend Bipasha Basu in a Mumbai nightspot in March 2003. John reportedly thrashed the men till the pub management stepped in.
Abhishek Bachchan: He had apparently damaged a photojournalist's camera while shooting for Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hai in Delhi. This spat apparently happened when Abhi tried defending the producer's sister on the streets of the capital. A case was filed and later withdrawn when Bachchan Sr sent money to the photographer to buy new equipment.
Zayed Khan: In early 2004, Zayed reportedly bashed up two NRIs for trying to gatecrash his friend and co-star Esha Deol's birthday party. He also got into a spat with DJ Ryan, at a Worli nightspot owned by his brother-in-law, DJ Aqueel.
Sohail Khan: He roughed up Kirron and Anupam Kher's son Sikander Kher after he passed an unsavoury comment about brother Salman in December 2005.
Sunny Deol: He got into an ugly spat last year with the director of Yamla Pagla Deewana, Samir Karnik when the latter made a snide remark about Sunny's relationship with Dimple Kapadia at the bash held at the Deol residence. Consequently, Samir is no longer a part of the film's sequel.
Adnan Sami: Singer Adnan Sami, who made headlines due to the fight with his wife, got into a spat with the son of a top cop at the trial show for the Shahid-Genelia starrer Chance Pe Dance.
