02/5Govinda slapped a fan on the sets of ‘Money Hai Toh Honey Hai’
Bollywood actor Govinda came under the fire in 2008 when he slapped commoner Santosh Ray on the sets of 'Money Hai Toh Honey Hai' at Filmistan Studio. On his part, the actor had reportedly stated that Santosh was allegedly misbehaving on the sets. Ray had filed a case against the actor in the Bombay High Court but it was quashed in 2013 stating that Ray had filed a case a year after the incident, making it look like he was instigated to act against the actor.

Kangana said, "You were bashing 'Manikarnika'. Have I done anything wrong by making a film on nationalism? You called me a jingoistic woman who is making a film on nationalism." However, the journalist maintained that he had not tweeted anything about the said movie and that she cannot intimidate a journalist because she is on a stage.
