Controversies court celebrities! Or is it the other way round? Roughing up the media, misbehaving with scribes, mouthing abuses, loosing their temper at press conferences… in short following the 'jerk code of conduct'. Some celebs have done it all.
Director Vidu Vinod Chopra lost his temper at a press conference of '3 Idiots' and ended up looking like an idiot himself. The director, who has been preaching Gandhigiri and aal izz well, forgot the lesson himself when a journalist questioned him about Chetan Bhagat's credit status. The scribe was told to shut up in complete filmy ishtyle. Well, Aal wazz certainly not well!
The controversy bug has bitten Salman Khan many times. The road accident, the black buck and of course, the infamous incident when sallu miyan punched a reporter after his break-up with former miss world Aishwarya Rai. Salman seems to be wooing controversies.
Celebrities these days have acquired a cult-like image. Harbhajan Singh, the turbannator just stands testimony to this. Over a year ago, Bhaji apparently, jabbed at a cameraman after his camera had hit him on the head, while he was taking his luggage out from a car before entering the airport. The cricketer is alleged to have slapped a cameraman in Bangalore amidst large media presence.
Singer Mika Singh has also made headlines for all the wrong reasons. Maybe item girl Rakhi just taught him that post the 'kissnama' they wrote together. The latest edition to his notorieties was the police complaint lodged against him by a Ludhiana-based television reporter, who had to face abuse by Mika after he asked the singer about Raakhi Sawant.
Last but definitely not the least is Raja Chaudhary. Ex-husband of TV actress Shweta Tiwari and contestant Bigg Boss 2 mis-behaved with a TV journalist when she questioned him about the charges of wife beating pressed on him.
