Whether it is Hollywood or Bollywood, stars end up in the limelight for all the right and wrong reasons. While the right reasons most often overpower the wrong, there is a niche of actors who are notoriously known to be riding on the wrong side of the law and end up in jail. Let us look at a few.
This Khan is always in the news for his bigger than life attitude. He may have a huge fan base, but those who hate the guy, HATE the guy! Salman was arrested for poaching chinkaras and black bucks and had to spend three days in jail. He was then arrested for a hit and run case where he rammed his car into a bakery and killed one person, injured two. His case was opened once again, recently.
When we talk about Bollywood bad boys, this guy can easily top the list. Sanjay was first arrested under TADA Act in 1993 for illegal possession of arms. After spending one year in jail, this Bollywood celebrity was accused in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts that killed more than 250 people. The actor is currently serving a jail term.
