Mumbai Police file FIR against Ranveer Singh for nude photos
The Mumbai Police on Tuesday filed an FIR against Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh after several complaints were lodged against him. It has been alleged that the actor hurt the sentiments of women by posting his nude photos online. Reportedly, the police took cognizance of a complaint filed by an office-bearer of an NGO at the Chembur Police Station. Read on to know more.
- The 83 actor set the internet on fire as he went naked for a photo shoot for Paper magazine recently.
- In the photos, Singh can be seen posing on a Turkish rug with a bare body.
- Even before Singh shared them on his social media space, the photos went viral.
- And, cases filed against him for posting such photos come as an unexpected twist.
The FIR was filed under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including Sections 292 (sale of obscene books), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), 509 (word, gesture, or act intended to insult women's modesty), and provisions of the Information Technology Act.
In one of the complaints, a lawyer had asked for an investigation to know Singh's intention behind posting the pictures. On the other hand, the NGO office-bearer had alleged the actor offended women's modesty and damaged their feelings through the nude photos. They sought a case be registered against Singh under the Information Technology Act and different sections of the Indian Penal Code, too.
Meanwhile, Tamil actor Vishnu Vishal (Raatchasan fame) took to his Instagram space on Monday and shared a few semi-nude photos to keep up with the trend. To recall, earlier this month, Vijay Deverakonda shared a poster of his upcoming film Liger, which had him posing semi-nude, too. The photo had Deverakonda posing with nothing but a bunch of flowers and boxing gloves.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Singh will be next seen in Rohit Shetty's directorial venture titled Cirkus. Jacqueline Fernandes and Pooja Hegde will be seen as his co-stars in the upcoming project. The film is slated for a Christmas 2022 release. He also has Karan Johar's Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani with Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi, and Jaya Bachchan in store.
