From Bollywood actors to sportspersons, many celebs had landed themselves into controversies and made headlines.

Here are few Indian sportspersons who got involved in scandals.

MS Dhoni

MS Dhoni had got an arrest warrant from Andhra Pradesh court for allegedly hurting Hindu sentiments. Apparently, a business magazine carried Dhoni's picture as Lord Vishnu holding several products, including shoes. This made people of Andhra furious, spelling trouble for the Indian cricket captain.


Cricketer Sreesanth frequently found himself embroiled in some controversy when he was active professionally. But the big scandal that got him banned for life was due to IPL Season 6 spot fixing. He was found guilty after an internal probe was conducted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Sania Mirza

Indian Tennis sensation Sania Mirza made headlines when she married Shoaib Malik. After dealing with a number of controversies and troubles, the love birds tied the knot.

Boxer Vijender Singh

Boxer Vijender Singh was accused of consuming and purchasing drugs which became a sensational scandal. But later, after testing, he was given an "all clean" certificate by National Anti – Doping Agency.

Sourav Ganguly

Indian cricketer Sourav Ganguly's relationship with actress Nagma was the biggest scandal in terms of love affairs in both cricket and film industry. The cricketer's career was on the verge of getting ruined.
