Updated: Dec 31, 2016 18:18 IST

New Delhi [India], Dec. 31 (ANI): Rumours and controversies have always been an inseparable part of tinsel town. Be it break-ups, patch-up or fights, here is a list of the most talked about controversies of 2016.

-Kangana-Hrithik tiff

The most controversial tussle between Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan has not just been this year's but one of the Bollywood's ugliest fights and as 2016 comes to an end, the 'Queen' of Bollywood poured her heart out and shared her "part of the story". Hrithik till date is yet to officially open up to the press on the issue.

-The CBFC and censorship in cinema

After the Central Board of Film Certification review committee suggested a whopping 89 cuts in the drug-themed bollywood movie ' Udta Punjab', almost everyone had a side to take in the controversy. They also asked the filmmakers to delete all references to Punjab and its cities, politics, elections and doing away with the expletives.

-Is Taimur the name of Kareena's baby?

After Kareena Kapoor gave birth to baby boy, the newborn became the talk of the town after his parents, Saif and Kareena, revealed his name -Taimur. Social media went crazy with the name, which is taken after the conqueror known for his brutal conquests.

-National anthem in theatres before every movie

The Supreme Court recently ruled that the national anthem should be played before the screening of every film in cinema halls, and for that everybody should "stand up in respect." Ever since the judgement, there have been cases registered against those 'disrespecting' the anthem. And of course, voices have been raised against why it is that movies are always 'targeted'.

-The 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' row

The terrorists attacks that killed 17 Army soldiers and injured 19 in a suicide attack on an Army camp close to the headquarter of the 12th Brigade at Uri in Baramulla District, was followed by the ban of Pakistani actors in India.

With political parties and public opposing casting Pakistani actors in Indian cinema, director Karan Johar's 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' was caught between a rock and a hard place as actor Fawad Khan played a small role in the film.

Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis too received flak for 'brokering' a deal between the MNS and the makers of the film to ensure its smooth release. (ANI)
