Bollywood celebrities are an inspiration to many. We try to imbibe Celebrity culture in our daily life. There are times when fans go crazy enough for their role models, that they forget the line between right and wrong and support their favorite celebrity in the darkest of times.

Though these actors may have made it large in Hindi cinema, but one mistake can ruin their public image.
