Akshay Kumar, the Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi has had his share of controversies over the years. From his string of affairs and a bold casanova image to the scandal his wife and him shared. Here are 7 such shocking scandals that got their share of the spotlight over the years.
Remember when Twinkle Khanna popped open Akshay Kumar's jeans button during a Levis fashion show? Well, while most of the country found it fun and flirty, there was a group of moral policers that filed a complaint against the couple.
Skip to 1:53 and you'll know why this controversy happened. The world wasn't prepared for Akshay Kumar and Rekha's strange intimacy and frankly, I'm still not. But this song is quite entertaining... and cringy.
Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon's on-screen chemistry had everyone singing 'Tip Tip Barsa Paani'. But his then-girlfriend, Pooja Batra wasn't quite happy about it when he cheated on her with Raveena.
She might have been his entry into Bollywood since Pooja Batra was a successful model at the beginning of Akshay's career and he was a newcomer. Either way, this didn't last long either but she was definitely the first feather in his stocked up hat. Surprisingly, the two are still good friends and cordial when they meet at public events.
She could have been 'the one' but alas, Shilpa Shetty lost the battle to Twinkle Khanna when she managed to turn their fling into a wedding. This Dhadkan didn't make it too far.
These two began getting close during the filming of Aitraaz in 2004 and then didn't stop till Waqt released in 2005. But when Twinkle Khanna got a whiff of this ongoing romance, she gave Akshay Kumar an ultimatum and banned him from working with Priyanka Chopra again.
Akshay Kumar went ahead and bid his naval uniform from his recent release, Rustom in order to raise money for animal welfare. But Major General GD Bakshi said that it was a crime to sell the uniform and the process got stuck in the scandal.
