Actors and actresses of the Hindi Film Industry are admired by many people all over the world. Many are even worshipped and have temples dedicated to them such as Rajnikant and Amitabh Bachhan. Bollywood is one such place where everyone longs for fame and money. And some fortuitous ones get more than they ever wished for! While many actors get famous, they often forget about the moral responsibility that comes along with fame. Since ordinary people tend to follow their footsteps, mannerisms and even lifestyles, they make a significant impact on their fans. However, many have managed to make a negative influence on not just their fans but the entire world as well.

While many actors were negligent, some broke the laws unknowingly, some did it deliberately and some became a victim of their surroundings. However, in all the cases, their image took a big hit except for the biggies like Salman Khan and Saif Ali Khan, although it did affect their fan following. These actors become role models for many but after all they are humans. That said, a crime is a crime, especially when the world looks up to you!
