Apart from their excellent box office record some actors have also maintained a crime record for which they were arrested and the sad part is that some real reputed actors are in the list. It's a shame for one to read that someone who's being idolized by many or someone who is perhaps the face of the new generation, committing preposterous crimes. It's equally shocking to see an A list actor commit a crime as it is to read the varying degrees of laws being violated by them.
We have witnessed different kinds of unlawful acts for which the actors were booked. While some of them are free from their allegations, others are still in the court facing trial. Many were proved guilty while some were discharged on bail.
The list has many names. Here's one with some top actor names in it, who were guilty under the law and order.
1. Shiney Ahuja
Everyone is very well aware of the incident as enough attention was given to the issue. He was booked for allegedly raping his domestic maid. This news was like a big blow to Bollywood as well as the whole nation. The actor argued that whatever happened was consensual. However it could not be proved and he was sentenced to seven years of jail for his crime.
2. Salman Khan
Today's star of the industry, perhaps the biggest face of Bollywood is guilty under the law for not just one but for two serious cases. One was for shooting an endangered species of antelope in Jodhpur when he was there for his shoot and the other case was for the culpable homicide in the hit and run case when he rammed his Toyota Land cruiser into a bakery, killing one person and injuring four others. The case is set to resume which was left in between due to the mysterious loss of some papers.
3. Sanjay Dutt
Sanjay Dutt was sent to prison in 2007 under the anti-terrorist law for possession of deadly, illegal firearms. Mumbai, in 1993, suffered a series of serial bombings and Dutt was amongst several accused in that case for which he went to jail. Court again upheld Dutt's five year sentence in 2013. He is currently serving his term in Yerwada central Jail.
4. Ankit Tiwari
This upcoming and talented Bollywood singer was arrested for raping his girlfriend. In her complaint, she claimed that the Aashiqui 2 singer raped her on several occasions. He was granted bail subsequently. His brother too was involved in this case as a person who had been threatening the victim.
5. Saif Ali Khan
Along with Salman Khan, the other cast and crew of the movie 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' were charged guilty under the law in the Black Buck shooting case. Saif was one of the accused. Recently, Saif had been called upon by the court with other stars who were involved in this crime. Later in 2012, he was again arrested for manhandling a NRI at a five star restaurant in Mumbai.
6. Shahrukh Khan
He got arrested for allegedly slapping a journalist. There are two sides to this story one where he did not hit the journalist and other where he did until he apologized to the actor for publishing an article on him being involved with his co-star. Even in the jail he called him up and abused him.
7. Fardeen Khan
Veteran actor Firoze Khan's son was arrested in 2001 for buying drugs from a peddler. The actor claimed that he had consumed less than 1 gm of cocaine which was agreed upon by the court. He was later granted immunity.

9. Sana Khan
The actress and Bigg Boss season 6 contestant was accused of kidnapping a minor girl along with her cousin. The sole reason for her abduction was she rejecting Sana Khan's cousin's marriage proposal. Sana Khan went missing after the reports were filed. Later on she came face to face with the law and denied all the allegations.
10. Madhur Bhandarkar
Director of the movie Fashion and Page 3 was accused of raping then struggling actress Preeti Jain in 2004. The national award winning director faced technical arrest for which he was granted a bail. The lady claimed that they both were sexually involved and he used her under the false pretext of giving her an opportunity to lead in one of his films. The allegations were proved wrong.
