In case if you are thinking that Kangana is the only Bollywood actress  who grabbed everyone’s attention, then it’s time you take a look at these 6 other Bollywood divas who shocked us with their legal battles. Start scrolling.

Tabu, Neelam Kothari, and Sonali Bendre: After working together in Sooraj Barjatya’s Hum Saath Saath Hain, the trio (unknowingly, of course) landed into a legal soup in the black buck poaching case. Though Salman Khan was the prime accused in the case, the actresses too were required to attend all the hearing regarding this case. The incident took place in 1998.

Monica Bedi: The actress, who quit Bollywood because of her alleged relationship with gangster Abu Salem, landed into trouble for the same. She landed into a legal battle, as she entered Portugal with fake documents. According to reports, in September 2002, Bedi and Abu Salem were arrested and served jail sentence in Portugal. In 2006, an Indian Court convicted Bedi for procuring a passport on a fictitious name. In November 2010, the Supreme Court of India upheld her conviction but reduced the jail term to the period that she had already served.
