2. Sidharth-Alia and Ranveer-Deepika Break up Rumors
These rumors have been doing rounds since the starting of the year. The IT couple of Bollywood- Ranveer and Deepika had split!

5. Salman Khan-Lulia Vantur Married
The couple being already married was abuzz. Although it was not known whether the couple was dating, the media spread the news of them being already married secretly in Romania.

As per a report, the actor was reportedly married in Romania with Iulia Vantur, his alleged girlfriend. Another report by Romanian media’s leading tabloid addressed the model-singer Iulia as “Doamna Khan”. The term translates as “royal Mrs. Khan”. Mr. Sallu (Khan) maintained silence on his affair or marriage with Ms. Vantur.
6. An accident of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan

7. Aamir Khan-Fatima Sana Shaikh Dating
‘Dangal’ proved to be a smashing hit at the box office. As per the natural rule of Bollywood, co-stars are often linked up despite their interest in each other. So the gossip mills were abuzz with the rumors Aamir Khan and Fatima Sana Sheikh dating each other. It was also reported that M. Perfectionist’s wife got really upset over the growing closeness of the actors. Although neither Aamir nor Fatima denied any such link up, it is for the time to decide the truth.

Another big rumor of the year is Mia Khalifa’s Bollywood debut. Although it is good news for hardcore fans of pornstar Mia Khalifa, the news is sadly untrue. Her Bollywood debut is not happening.
9. The Padmavati Romantic Scene
Much hue and cry was made by several so-called activist groups about the movie. Right from the news of the director of the movie Sanjay Leela Bhansali getting physically assaulted to the lead actors getting death threats, people committing suicide, and angst among people, the movie has been through a lot. One of the major reasons behind this uproar is the so-called romantic scene between the controversial characters of Ranveer (Allauddin Khilji) and Deepika (Padmavati). However, this has been proved as the biggest rumor of the year.
