Controversies of Amol Palekar

Rahul Rawail, a jury member of the Film Federation of India, had accused chairman Amol Palekar of manipulating the process of electing an Indian film for the Oscars.   A huge commotion was created near Law College (Pune) when actor Amol Palekar's BMW crashed into a Swift car. Amol Palekar got into an argument with the other car's driver while the onlookers tried to sort the issue. The accident occurred when the two cars were waiting for the signal to go green. At last, the issue was taken to the police.   His name appeared in the Bofors scandal in which he was later declared not-guilty.   He was indicted for submitting false documents to prove that he is a farmer.   Stardust imposed a 15-years ban on him during his peak acting years. According to his blog, he brought the idea of National Emergency and ban on Media. So, media took that otherwise and banned Amitabh Bachchan: means no interviews, no mention or pictures, etc.   In 1996, he had to face a legal battle for organizing Miss World competition inappropriately.
