The big controversy around the infamous slapping incident between Varun Dhawan and Sohail Khan refuses to die down, in spite of both the camps continuing to deny it.
The grapevine has been abuzz with rumours that David Dhawan’s son had an altercation with Sohail and the latter slapped him.
While denials may be flying through the air, it once again throws light on Bollywood’s most famous brawls.
Here’s a low-down on the top ‘hit’ incidents...
SRK slaps Shirish Kunder: It was the night to celebrate Sanjay Dutt’s success for his role in the remake of Agneepath. SRK who had been upset with Shirish for making nasty comments about his film RA.One on social networking sites bumped into him and slapped him hard. They apparently patched up a couple of days later.
Govinda slaps Neeraj Vora: Govinda was working under Neeraj who was directing the long-pending film Run Bhola Run. The actor felt offended by Vora and thought that he was giving more prominence to his co-star Aryan Vaid. Both parties denied the news but people on the sets confirmed it. Govinda apparently had also hit a fan on the sets of Money Hai To Honey Hai.
Akshay Kumar slaps Prakash Jaju: Akshay, who has been linked to Priyanka Chopra in the past, slapped her secretary Prakash Jaju at the Filmistan Studios. Akki felt that it was Jaju who was behind all the rumours that were leaked to the media about the alleged relationship between the two actors.
Salman Khan slaps Subhash Ghai: Salman once again became the bad boy when he apparently slapped Subhash Ghai at a party over some comment. When Salman’s father Salim Khan learnt about it, he asked the actor to apologise to Ghai. All was forgotten and they even ended up working together in Yuvraaj.
Pooja Bhatt slaps Muzzamil Ibrahim: Pooja gave a break to model-turned-actor Muzzamil in her directorial venture Dhokha. During the shoot, Muzzamil could not get his expressions right and Pooja lost her cool and slapped him.
And it’s not just them, but yesteryear stars too engaged in slapping matches. Nutan had once slapped Sanjeev Kumar at a film studio while Anand Bakshi had hit music director Lakshmikant. Even Dharmendra had slapped Sanjay Khan.
