Since the beginning of his career, Kamal has been in the middle of controversies, such as his temper tantrums during the shooting of ‘Bigg Boss’. Bigg Boss is a reality show that takes place inside the confines of a house. The contestants are to remain in the house during the entire production of the show and their life inside this house is shot and broadcasted. Kamaal R Khan was noticeable for certain acts that he committed during this shoot such as throwing a water bottle in rage against another housemate. The film that he produced- ‘Deshdrohi’ was banned in Maharashtra as the government feared that it would cause riots in the state. Apart from this, Kamaal also lands into trouble often by simply speaking out his mind. While criticizing a movie in which a South Indian actor played the lead role, he accidentally made racist remarks at the actor. The same scenario repeated when the words that he used to describe Rajnikanth’s movie – ‘Kochaadiyan’, were derogatory and unnecessary. He had to face the wrath of Rajinikanth’s fans for several days. Apart from his minor unpleasant instances in the industry, He is a very promising individual in the field of cinema. His real name is Rashid Khan but he added Kamaal to it making it Kamaal Rashid Khan. Though he is not famous for his movies, we can say he does KAMAAL atleast through his controversies.
