Bollywood has had its fair share of controversies and the recent drug bust involving Shahrukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan is one of many. 


So, here are other controversies that actor Shahrukh Khan has found himself in. Take a look. 

1. When the celeb was banned from entering Wankhede Stadium. 

In 2012, the Mumbai Cricket Association had claimed that the actor was drunk and had assaulted its officials. And apparently, the reason behind the brawl was a couple of stadium officials manhandling his daughter Suhana. 


2. When he ended up slapping Farah Khan’s husband Shirish Kunder. 

According to the reports, Shirish Kunder was constantly stalking Shahrukh Khan at Sunjay Dutt’s success party for Agneepath. And ultimately, that led to the celeb finally losing composure and slapping Kunder.
