Controversies • Her kissing scene with actor Vinod Khanna, who was 20 years elder to her for the film Dayavan (1988) was counted among one of the creepiest kissing scenes ever. She has confessed that she should have rejected that entire scene altogether.
• She used to promote the product of Maggie saying that it is very healthy for kids. But, after the Maggie controversy (MSG in high amount) in 2015, she was badly criticized for it. A district court directed police to register an FIR against Amitabh Bachchan, Madhuri and Preity Zinta, for this.
• If rumours are to be believed, then in 2012 she demanded a huge amount of 9 – 10 Crore (INR), to be the brand ambassador of Maharashtra. The news soon spread quickly and she was criticized for acting so pricey, and later Hrithik Roshan replaced her.
