8 Bollywood actors who were accused of sexual abuse


The Bollywood industry seems all glitzy and glamorous, but it has its dark side too. From fraud to cheating, from unprofessional behaviour to real life fights and accusations, we’ve seen it all. But there have been instances when some of them were accused of sexual assault.

Here we list down 8 Bollywood actors who have been accused of such a crime.


In the year 2009, the ‘Gangster’ star Shiney Ahuja made it to headlines when he was arrested by the Oshiwara Police following an FIR filed by his maid. Ahuja’s maid claimed that the actor raped her when the two were alone at his residence and then kept her locked in the room for two hours. Ahuja was then arrested and punished with seven year imprisonment. Later, he was granted bail as the maid wavered from her statement and said that Shiney didn’t rape her and she charged him with false allegations.

In the year 2014, Inder Kumar’s girlfriend filed a case against the star with the charges of sexual assault post which he had been arrested. Inder Kumar and his model-girlfriend were apparently in a live-in relationship and his girlfriend accused him of raping and beating her up out of rage. According to the reports, Inder had probably hit her with a beer bottle and kicked her out of anger post which she filed a case against him. He was booked under Indian Penal Code section 376 (rape), 342 (wrongful confinement), 325 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt) and 506-2 (criminal intimidation).


Nilesh Nirbhavane, who featured as a back dancer in Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor’s ‘ABCD 2’, had been accused for gang-raping a teenager. Reports suggest that he along with three others used to rape a 14 –year-old mentally challenged in public toilets and some isolated areas of Ghatkopar. Reports further revealed that Nilesh admitted to committing this crime and has been charged with IPC sections 376D (gang rape), 377 (unnatural offences) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention), along with relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.
