    Bollywood is no stranger to controversies and the latest film to milk profits is porn star Sunny Leone's Jism 2. From PIL to effiges burnt, the film has garnered enough heat to keep it burning, even before the release. There is no doubt about the fact that controversies have given the added push to a film's cause but at times, they do almost nothing for its future. While some controversies were merely publicity stunts, others attracted public outrage because of the films' explicit content. Here's a look at the ten most controversial films of all time.

    Aamir Khan in 'Gajini': It took 13 months and a daily regimen of four hours to get the most talked about eight-packs. Aamir's 'Gajini' body was fueled mostly with 16 egg whites through  the day and atleast 1000 abdomen crunches everyday. So eight packs, anyone?

    Here's a list of Top 10 actresses who are all set for their second innings at the box-office

    The times are changing and Bollywood is also in a state of flux. Earlier, the shelf-life of an actress was limited where an actress was as good as her last box-office release. Those who got an extension were relegated to the background and had to play the role of a mother or sister to the co-star she had romanced few years ago.
