Here are some slap moments from Bollywood
1. Mala Sinha slaps Sharmila Tagore: During the making of Joy Mukherjee’s espionage thriller Humsaya (1968) Joy’s two heroines Mala Sinha and Sharmila Tagore were said to have had catfights galore.

2. Nutan Slaps Sanjeev Kumar: The story goes that Nutan’s husband Rajnish Behl suspected his wife of having an affair with her co-star Sanjeev Kumar during the making of Devi(1970). To prove that the rumours were wrong Nutan slapped Sanjeev in full public view.
3. Anupam Kher Slaps Journalist: A journalist from a gossip magazine who had written about an alleged affair between the actor and Mamta Kulkarnis’s sister, was slapped on the set of a Kher movie. The slap led to massive protests in the media.
4. Geetika Tyagi Slaps Subhash Kapoor: Starlet Geetika Tyagi’s video where she slaps director Subhash Kapoor in front of the latter’s wife created a sensation on the internet.

8. Govinda Slaps Fan: This was way back in 2008 when on the set of a film a fan got too close to Govinda for comfort. The actor retorted with a slap. Now the honorable court has asked Govindas to apologise. Issko kehte hain thappad ki goonj.
