Dil Se Dil Tak actor Sidharth Shukla is again in the eye of the storm. The actor was arrested last night for hitting his BMW car into three vehicles and ramming his car onto a divider. This is not the first time that the TV star has been embroiled in a controversy.
Here are some of the controversies he has been involved in.
The Balika Vadhu star was arrested on Saturday for rash driving. The actor was driving his car at a higher speed and lost control. He was booked under sections 279, 337 and 427 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). He was released after paying a penalty of Rs 5000.
Actor Kunal Verma had openly criticised Sidharth Shukla for his bad behaviour on the sets of Dil Se Dil Tak. In August last year, he opened up about Sidharth's brash behaviour on the sets of the show, where the actor didn't just abused Kunal but also threw water at him. While talking to The Times of India, Kunal even said the actor needs psychiatric help. He said, "He is an unprofessional maniac and a psycho. I think he needs a psychiatric treatment again. I heard he had gone to a rehab once and I think he needs to visit it again."
Sidharth Shukla reportedly got into a fight with co-star Rashami Desai in June last year on the sets of Dil Se Dil Tak. Things went from bad to worse between the duo, who were once rumoured to be dating each other.
Sidharth Shukla seems to be a regular offender when it comes to his behaviour with his co-stars. According to reports, things went kaput between Sidharth and Toral when they were shooting the honeymoon sequence in Kashmir. The two were not in talking terms after returning from the shoot in Kashmir.

Sidharth could easily be called the new tantrum king of telly world. The actor is known to be late on sets and create a ruckus with his bizarre demands. Once, Sidharth had apparently refused to shoot because his vanity van was smaller than Rashami's.
Sidharth was caught driving under the influence of alcohol on New Year's Eve in 2014. Sidharth was booked for 'Drunk and Drive' case and was fined Rs 2000.
