Most Controversial Bollywood Movies Till 2021
Controversies and Bollywood grew together, and there are many instances when movies were banned in some states. You all are pretty familiar with the names of movies that should be on the list. However, I will try my best to give you a few new details via this post related to the controversies.
Since most of the Indian movies were banned or criticized for showing skin, I am excluding all of those because that’s absurd. If you find any controversial movie in the list because of skin… it is probably because of the silliness of the Indian audience.
1. Padmavat changed from Padmavati Controversy
The makers were forced to change the name of the movie because of the so-called Karni Sena. Even though Padmavati was changed to Padmavat, the Karni Sena threatened actors and filmmakers. I remember going through extra security to watch the movie in the theatres.
2. Jodha Akbar Controversy
Some historians questioned the script as they believe Jodha and Akbar were not the husband and wife. The movie was not accurate to history and Ashutosh Gowarikar was criticized for this.
3. Kurbaan Controversy
That’s the silliest thing that came across when the audience rip off the posters because it has backless Kareena Kapoor Khan. Later, Kareena came forward and cleared how Indian women often wear backless blouses even in villages and rural areas.
4. Judgemental Hai Kya changed from Mental Hai Kya Controversy
The movie title was changed just before the release. The major reason was the NGOs who claimed it would hurt the sentiments of Mental people. Makers were forced to change the name of the movie.
5. Fire Controversial Film
India’s first lesbian romantic movie featured veteran actresses Sabana Azmi and Nandita Das in the lead role. While the movie came into controversy because of a same-sex relationship, another angle was using the name Sita (which wasn’t even true.)
6. RGV’s Dangerous Controversy
RGV’s upcoming movie Dangerous is getting lots of backlash from the LGBTQIA+ community for such an objectifying portrayal. Even though Ramu keeps saying this is a romantic movie, the plot is completely different. Check the trailer.
7. Mohenjo Daro Controversy
Another Ashutosh Gowariker movie falls into controversy because of inadequate research work behind the script. The movie promises to tell the story of 5000 years old civilization, but the movie became a disaster.
8. PK Controversial Film
Aamir Khan’s blockbuster movie PK came into controversy because of the scene where an alien attacked a stage artist dressed like Lord Shiva. The Hindus keep saying that they were hurt because of Lord Shiva’s portrayal.
9. Black Friday Controversy
Anurag Kashyap’s masterpiece was on hold for months before the censor board gave it a green signal. Even after that, the movie was backlashed for not being diplomatic in such a sensitive matter. People also believe, the movie is behind the punishment of attackers.
10. Udta Punjab Controversy
When the censor board asked for almost 100 cuts, Anurag Kashyap and other filmmakers came together for the press conference and talk against Censor Board.
There are many movies that can be included in the list of most controversial Bollywood Movies. Comment down the movie which came into controversies becuase of odd reasons.
