Bigg Boss, the Indian reality TV show which is an adaptation of UK based reality TV show ‘Bigg Brother’.
The actor was nominated for eviction for 3 consecutive weeks. Later on, he became the first contender to be impulsively kicked out from the Bigg Boss house owing to his violent behavior towards other house mates. The actor abused Rohit Verma and then threw a water bottle at him. Unfortunately, the bottle hit
Shamita Shetty accidentally. In the show, Khan also had a turbulent fight with comedian
Raju Srivastav. The show authorities asked Khan to leave the house on the night. Later on, on 19th of November, Khan re-entered the house of Bigg Boss as a wild card entrant. The second stint of Khan ended in Week 10.
Khan was also involved in a controversy for his debut film Deshdrohi. The movie was banned in Maharashtra by the state government owing to concerns related to riots. In one of the instances, Kamaal Khan was accused of making offensive caste based remarks and slanderous remarks against Dhanush, South Indian actor in his review for the latter's debut Hindi movie Raanjhanaa. The reviews were posted on YouTube.
Thereafter, a case under Section 66A of the IT Act was registered against the actor which was lodged by Dr Bheemrao Ambedkar Vichaar Manch secretary R.L. Kane through email. The film fraternity also approached the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE). They demanded a complete ban against the actor.
One can say that KRK is an illegitimate son of controversy. Nowadays, he is more famous for his controversies than his movie related things.

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.
