As per new reports from the Mumbai Regional Transport Office (RTO), Salman Khan, who allegedly was behind the wheels of his SUV during the hit-and-run case in 2002, had no driving license when the incident took place.

The "Kick" actor had allegedly rammed his car into a bakery in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on 28 September 2002, killing one person and injuring four others.

Salman had earlier also run into legal trouble for the 1998 black buck poaching case, where he had reportedly killed endangered deer with Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam during the shooting of "Hum Saath-Saath Hain" in Rajasthan.

Salman Khan's "Ek Tha Tiger" also faced a couple of issues when a few people alleged that the film had a resemblance with the real-life story of a late RAW agent, Ravindra Kaushik, who passed away in a Pakistani jail in 2002.

While Salman might be one of the most popular actors with legal issues, there are a few others who have also made it to the list. 

Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Karan Johar

The controversial show AIB Knockout was recently in news for all the wrong reasons. The show, which was attended by many leading B-town celebs, was taken down from YouTube for its filthy content and was criticised by many for the adult jokes by the hosts of the show.

An FIR was filed against Ranveer, Arjun and Karan for participating in the show under sections 292 (Distribution of obscene content or lascivious or appeals to the prurient interest) and Section 294 (Obscene Act in public place) of IPC.

Aamir Khan

"PK" turned out to be the most controversial film in Aamir Khan's career ever since the makers released the first look poster featuring the superstar with just a transistor. Aamir faced legal trouble for the 'obscene' and 'vulgar' poster, following which many demanded a ban on the film. However, the film turned out to be the top box office hit of 2014 and received many accolades.

Sanjay Gupta

Sanjay Gupta, director of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's comeback film "Jazbaa" had earlier committed to work with Vinod Bachchan for a project named "Delhi Ka Thug", which failed to go on floors. Following this, Vinod demanded ₹50 lakh, which the "Jazbaa" director had earlier accepted as a remuneration.

However, Gupta's lawyer claimed that the film-maker had already paid ₹49.5 lakh compensation in April last year and filed a case against Vinod for defamation, extortion and cheating.

Amitabh Bachchan

Big B was recently summoned by a Los Angeles Federal Court for using a controversial slogan "blood for blood" in 1984 after Sikh body guards assassinated former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.


South Indian superstar Rajinikanth recently faced some plagiarism allegations, before and after his film "Lingaa" was released worldwide. An aspiring film-maker had claimed that the storyline of Rajini's film was similar to his film "Mullai Vanam 999" based on the Mullaperiyar dam.

AR Murugadoss

The "Kaththi" director was also said to have copied the storyline of an upcoming director Minjur Gopi for Vijay's film. Murugadoss had also filed a defamation case against Gopi.

Sanjay Dutt

Sanjay Dutt is serving a 42-month sentence for his involvement in the Mumbai serial blasts, which rocked the city in March 1993. 

Daisy Shah, Ganesh Acharya, Rajneesh Duggal

Salman Khan's "Jai Ho" heroine Daisy Shah was named in a police complaint by Bhojpuri actor Satyendra Singh. The actor had filed an 'attempt to murder' case against 21 people, which also had the names of ace choreographer Ganesh Acharya and actor Rajneesh Duggal. Singh filed the case after he was thrown out of a film titled "Soda" and met with a car accident in UP.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ranveer Singh,  Deepika Padukone

The lead actors and film-maker Bhansali had faced legal trouble over the film "Ram-leela", which was accused of promoting communal violence and enmity between two groups.

Ranbir Kapoor

The Kapoor scion faced legal issues in 2012 for violating Section 5 of the Rajasthan Prevention of Smoking Act by smoking in public during the shoot of "Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani". 

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh also had his share of legal issues for smoking publicly during an IPL match in Jaipur in 2012.
