Controversies go synonymous with the Entertainment industry! And 2022 was rather full of them.

Bollywood celebrities are known to get involved in some controversy or another and as mentioned above, this year was no different. As 2022 is coming to an end, we thought of going down memory lane and walking through some of the most talked about controversies of the year.

Boycott trend and its effect on 'Laal Singh Chaddha'

Right before the release of 'Laal Singh Chaddha,' Twitter users started trending the hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha, asking people to not watch the movie. At first, it looked harmless, just a group of trolls creating some hysteria around the film, however, when the film was declared a box office flop, people realised the seriousness.

Some Twitter users went through the archives and dug up Aamir's controversial "India's growing intolerance" statement and circulated it on the micro-blogging site. Some of Kareena's controversial statements from the past have also been surfacing online.

Talking about the controversial statement in question, in 2015, Aamir Khan said in an interview, "Our country is very tolerant, but there are people who spread ill-will". His wife Kiran Rao also made headlines for saying that she considered leaving the country for the safety of their children. Eventually, the film failed to make business at the box office.

'Kashmir Files' vs IFFI jury head Nadav Lapid

The 'Kashmir Files' was screened at the Internation Film Festival of India which was held in Goa last month. However, things turned ugly at the closing ceremony of IFFI, when the head of Jury Nadav Lapid addressed the audience and called the film "propaganda, vulgar".

"All of us were disturbed and shocked by the 15th film, The Kashmir Files. That felt like a propaganda, vulgar movie, inappropriate for an artistic competitive section of such a prestigious film festival. I feel totally comfortable openly sharing these feelings here with you at this stage. In the spirit of this festival, we can surely also accept a critical discussion, which is essential for art and life," said Nadav at the festival's closing ceremony.

After that, he was slammed by many including director Vivek Agnihotri, who challenged Nadav to prove how the film is factually wrong. He said, "I challenge all these urban Naxals and the legendary filmmaker who came from Israel that if they can prove any single shot, event or dialogue is not completely true, then I will quit filmmaking. Who are these people who stand up against India every time?"

Ranveer Singh's nude photoshoot

Ranveer got embroiled in a controversy after posing nude for a magazine photoshoot earlier this year. An FIR was filed against him post that.

The Mumbai Police filed the FIR under various Sections of the Indian Penal Code like 292 (sale of obscene books, etc), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and provisions of the Information Technology Act.

Ranveer's photo shoot images were posted online on July 21. In them, Ranveer was seen wearing no clothes. In one of the images, he was seen lying on a rug naked recreating Burt Reynold's famous photograph.

'Liger' funding investigation

ED grilled Actor Vijay Deverakonda for more than nine hours in connection with the PMLA case registered after a complaint was filed with the central agency stating that hawala money was invested in the movie 'Liger' by a top Telangana Rashtra Samithi leader. According to sources, Vijay was questioned in a case related to an alleged FEMA (Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999) violation. Earlier on November 17, ED questioned 'Liger' producer Charmme Kaur over an alleged FEMA violation. 'Liger' failed to impress the audience and was a box office disaster. The matter is still being investigated by authorities. (ANI)
