Many envy Bollywood celebrities for their high-profile and glamorous lives, but these stars have dark past too.

Even a single slip lands them into controversies, which sometimes turn their life upside down. A-listers like Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt have even spent time behind bars for their misdeeds.

Here are a few celebrities who have had trouble with law:

Mamta Kulkarni

A joint operation between Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Mombasa Police led to the arrest of Mamta Kulkarni, best known for doing sensual roles in the 90s. She was arrested with her husband Vicky Goswami in Kenya for alleged involvement in drug trafficking.

Salman Khan

"Kick" star Salman Khan has made multiple trips to court owing to black buck poaching case (1998) and hit-and-run case (2002). Khan had a hearing on 5 November for the latter case, which got adjourned till 24 November. In 2002, the actor, driving his car, ran a few labourers over, injuring three and killing one.

Sanjay Dutt

Sanjay Dutt has also made headlines for conflict with law. The "Munnabhai MBBS" star has been in news since his drug addiction in college. He went to jail multiple times, mainly for possessing arms and ammunition illegally.

Shweta Basu

"Makdee" fame Shweta Basu Prasad was found being involved in a prostitution racket. She was caught red-handed in a famous hotel by Hyderabad police and was booked for prostitution on 31 August this year.

Monika Bedi

Actress Monika Bedi was arrested with underworld don Abu Salem in 2002. Even in 2010, Bedi was taken into custody for passport forgery, but her jail term was reduced as she had already spent three years in custody earlier.

Shiney Ahuja

The news of the "Gangster" actor Shiney Ahuja came as a shock to Bollywood as well as his fans. In 2009, the actor was arrested as his housemaid filed a complaint, accusing him of raping her in his house. He was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment in 2011.
