Even as Ekta Kapoor‘s much talked about spooky flick Ragini MMS hits theatres this week, we at Bollywood Hungama take a trip down memory lane and look at some real life MMS scandals which shook Bollywood.
Ashmit Patel- Riya Sen video
When it comes to the most controversial and talked about MMS scandals in the world of Bollywood, you can’t help but first think about the Ashmit Patel-Riya Sen MMS which did the rounds of the mobile and internet world a few years ago. It is a well-known fact that Ashmit and Riya were seeing each other at that point of time but when their erotic video apparently leaked out in the public it did cause a lot of furore. Rumours state that Ashmit released the video deliberately when he realized that Riya was cheating on him while other sources say that the video was a mere publicity stunt. Needless to say the couple broke-up soon after the incident but there is no doubt the video till date continues to haunt them.
Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor never really denied the fact that they were a couple. However, little did they expect that their private moment would be available on public domain for one and all to see. The MMS video which leaked featured the couple indulging in a passionate lip lock at a popular nightspot. Even though Shahid and Bebo denied that it was them in the video, the similarities were too obvious to miss the naked eye.
Sherlyn Chopra stripping video
Another popular MMS video was the one featuring starlet Sherlyn aka Mona Chopra. The actress was seen topless as she undressed in front of the mirror in the video. Going by her image, we won’t be surprised if the video was nothing more than a publicity stunt to garner eyeballs.
Besides the above mentioned ones, there were quite a few MMS videos which claimed to feature various top actresses but most of them contained fake / morphed images.
