Katrina Kaif Controversy
The actress has landed in some controversies. Here are the list of controversy the actress has been part of:
- Katrina broke up with Salman in 2010. The reason behind this was her closeness with co-star Ranbir Kapoor during the film Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani. However, both Katrina and Ranbir denied it. But their personal photo during their holiday in Ibiza was leaked by some magazine. After the photos were published the actress said, “she was upset and distressed by the breach of their privacy”.
- During her 27th birthday, Salman and Shahrukh heated argument turned ugly and the world has seen their rivalry after that. Both the actors were not on talking terms. However, with time, they have moved on and became friends. This brings another controversy in Katrina’s life without being her at fault.
- When no one knew Katrina, she did an intimate scene with Gulshan Grover in movie Boom. After she became established in Bollywood, her fans wonder why did she choose to do the scene. The video was like a shock of the highest order. Because Katrina has so far maintained a very clean image who barely does any intimate scene on screen.
- During the shoot of Namaste London, she visited Ajmer Sharif Dargah in Miniskirt. This hurts the religious sentiments of people of India. She is very much aware of Indian roots and she could have avoided this controversy by wearing a suitable dress.
