    Whether a tongue-in-cheek remark or a social faux pas or sometimes even a deliberate attempt to create controversy -
    Indian film stars love to hog the limelight for all the wrong reasons. Here is a look at Bollywood's most controversial quotes.
    Shah Rukh Khan recently said, "I always wanted to be a porn star. I am going to work very hard, positively,
    with clarity to be a porn star. I will take my flag and put it up in America as the biggest porn star of the world."

    Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan's war of words is not new in Bollywood. More than a year ago, Aamir wrote on his blog,
    "Shah Rukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more can I ask for?
    Now, before you jump to any conclusions, let me add that Shah Rukh is the name of our dog."

    SRK reacted to this saying, "Aamir has lost two of his fans as both my children loved him as an actor."

    Now, after more than a year, it's difficult to say what prompted Aamir to apologise, but he did while launching a coffee table book.
    But Aamir was very careful with his choice of words, he said, "I haven't apologised to Shah Rukh.
    But yes, I have apologized to his children."

    Shah Rukh Khan's detention at a US airport witnessed a war of words of another sort.
    Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh claimed it a publicity gimmick and said,
    "He is garnering publicity for his forthcoming film My Name is Khan."

    To this, SRK reacted in a press conference saying,
    "Amar Singhji is not in good health. So I pray to God to give him
    physical and mental strength."

    In fact, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan too ruffled feathers with each other on King Khan's detention issue when Salman said,
    "There is no big deal about it. We all wait for hours and get frisked at airports. It's because of their strict checking."

    And prompt came SRK's reply, "Everyone has his own experience.
    It happens with him so it's nothing new for him."

    Actress Sonam Kapoor's remarks on Aishwarya Rai had raked up a controversy
    when she said, "We belong to two different generations."

    In fact, not only that, according to reports, she even went ahead and said,
    "Ash has worked with my dad so I have to call her Aunty na?"

    There are more controversies to Sonam's credit. Criticizing Shobha De Sonam said to a newspaper,
    "For a 60-something porn writer, I am sure she (Shobha) knows what she's talking about."

    Shobha had commented on Sonam's sex appeal saying, "Sonam just doesn't cut it in the sex appeal stakes."

    After his break-up with Kareena Kapoor, when Shaid was asked on a television channel if he would work with Kareena,
    he reacted, "If my director wants me to work with a cow or a buffalo, as an actor, I am ready to do it."

    Actor Aamir Khan's severe criticism of Amitabh Bachchan's Black caused a rift between the two. Aamir said in an interview,
    "I didnít like the film. I found it very insensitive, it sends out very wrong signals. It was extremely manipulative. I could see the effort
    in the manipulation, and the art of the director is in not letting you see the manipulation. The sensibility wasnít right for me,
    I couldnít make out if they were living in a house or a museum or a library or a church.
    The performances were over the top."

    He further said, "Black reminded me of The Taming Of The Shrew, and I found that very disturbing.
    It was a film about ĎI can teach a bear how to dance.í"

    Extremely upset, Big B reacted strongly, "I failed to understand how a polio affected person can bowl
    as shown in Lagaan and the insensitivity shown towards a blind girl played by Kajol in Fanaa.

    Even Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire was up for some criticism and most prominent among all was from Amitabh Bachchan who wrote on his blog,
    "If Slumdog... projects India as a Third World dirty underbelly developing nation and causes pain and disgust among nationalists and patriots,
    let it be known that a murky under belly exists and thrives even in the most developed nations. Itís just that the Slumdog... idea,
    authored by an Indian and conceived and cinematically put together by a Westerner, gets global recognition.
    The other would perhaps not."
    Later on, Big B took a u-turn.

    Another star who criticised Slumdog Millionaire was actress Shilpa Shetty. She said, "Obviously, itís about the slums. I just feel that
    internationally recognised films focus more on our slums and poverty. So I just wrote on my blog two days ago that for a change
    Iím doing a film that focuses on the beauty of India and its culture. Thatíll be interesting to watch as well."

    With her views on pre-marital sex, actress Khushboo has caused a storm in Southern Indian states.
    She said in an interview, "Pre-marital sex is okay provided safety measures are followed to prevent
    pregnancy and sexually-transmitted diseases."

    She also added, "No educated man today would expect his wife to be a virgin."
    She later apologized for her comments.

    Sexy siren Sherlyn Chopra never feels shy from making statements which cause ripples in the film industry. In one of the interviews,
    she had said, "I donít believe in sticking to the normal of 1:1 ratio thing. If you can heighten your pleasure in a ratio of 1: 3 or 2: 4,
    then why not? Do you think the Indian male is well-equipped to satisfy me?

    Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan's off-handed remark snowballed into a controversy.
    While promoting a film she said, "We are from Uttar Pradesh and should speak in Hindi."

    Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) and Shiv Sena launched a scathing attack on her.
    Finally, she had to apologised for her comments.

    Shilpa also entered into another controversy with author and scriptwriter Farrukh Dhondy who had commented
    that racial remarks on her in British TV reality show Celebrity Big Brother was a drama and gimmick.

    To this, Shilpa had said, "Farrukh Dhondy has made a statement that I'm a fake. How dare he? How dare he take away
    the fact that I'm representing my country in Britain? A lot of Indians in Britain are very irked by his criticism of me.

    Aamir Khan's support to Narmada Bachao Andolan led to the burning of posters and effigies of the actor.
    Lending support to the Andolan, Aamir had said, "As a concerned Indian citizen, I have come here to lend my support to
    these poor Adivasis who will lose their land and will be displaced from their homes if the height of the dam is raised."
