With the advent of the year 2016, a number of controversies revolving around Bollywood celebs popped up.

Before we say a final goodbye to the year, here's giving you a flashback of all the controversies that shook B-townies and all of us.

Hrithik Roshan- Kangana Ranaut UGLY SPAT:

Who can forget the ugliest battle between Hrithik Roshan- Kangana Ranaut that made headlines for almost more than a month. Their spat took an ugly turn when the actors who were rumored to have been dating in the past slapped each other with legal notices. Even after thorough investigations, the officials are yet to come to any conclusion.

BAN on Pakistani actors:

Cross-border India-Pakistan tension affected the entertainment world and this led to a ban on Pakistani actors. The members of the political party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) threatened them and issued an "ultimatum" to quit India within 48 hours or face trouble.

The ban came after the September 18 terror attack that killed 19 Indian soldiers in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir.

The most affected one was Karan Johar as his film "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" was caught in the eye of the storm for featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. Things got better when Karan came out with a video, saying he will not engage with talent from Pakistan "in the circumstances".

Salman Khan's "Insensitive Rape Remarks":

Salman Khan during his 'Sultan' interviews gave out a statement where he compared himself to a 'raped woman'. These comments got him in big trouble and the star was then made apologize for it,

Kareena Kapoor- Saif Ali Khan's son 'Taimur Ali Khan':

Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan welcomed their first child on December 20, 2016. The couple named their son 'Taimur Ali Khan' and soon after they made the announcement they faced a huge backlash from the social media. However, the couple is yet to give any clarification on the same.

Censor hassles:

No kissing, no bikini, no abuses, no same-sex couples kissing -- the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was not so liberal with its approach in 2016. The censor board implemented several cuts, which irked filmmakers. The loudest flutter was made when it tried to alter Anurag Kashyap's film "Udta Punjab" by demanding 89 cuts, including the removal of a reference to Punjab.

Other films to face the censor board's scissors were "Aligarh" for its homosexual scenes, "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" for some intimate scenes between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor and "Befikre" for same-sex kissing.

Piracy trouble:

From "Udta Punjab" and "Great Grand Masti" getting leaked even before their release, to the prints of "Kabali", "Mohenjo Daro", "Rustom" and now "Dangal" surfacing online -- the ghost of piracy loomed large on the Indian film industry this year. It not only stumped industry professionals but also fuelled the long-standing debate on how piracy could be tackled.

There are many more controversies that rocked the headlines of 2016. Indeed, it was a year filled with so many surprising and shocking events.
