Recently, actor Ranveer Singh landed into trouble for posing nude for a magazine photoshoot.
After the pictures went viral on social media, an FIR was registered against the actor on July 26. by an office-bearer of the NGO who had alleged that the actor hurt the sentiments of women with his nude photos. The Mumbai Police filed the FIR under various Sections of the Indian Penal Code like 292 (sale of obscene books, etc), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and provisions of the Information Technology Act.
During the interrogation by the Mumbai Police the actor stated that the photo revealing his private parts was morphed and is fake. This was in relation to one of the pictures of the actor where he was seen lying on a rug naked recreating Burt Reynold’s famous photograph.
Mumbai police recorded his statement last month for two hours after the actor reached Chembur Police station at 7:30am on August 29.
“We had asked the actor to come to the police station by August 30. He visited the police station on Monday at 7:30am and was present in the police station till 9:30am,” said deputy commissioner of police, Krishna Kant Upadhyay, Zone VI.
Earlier it was reported that when the actor was shown all the photos by the police, he denied uploading one of the pictures in which his private parts were allegedly visible.
The police stated that the actor answered all their questions and he might be summoned again if the need be. The police officials also stated that the actor was “completely co-operative” with the investigators.
