Ranveer Singh has been involved in a controversy since posing naked for a magazine. The actor is currently in boil with the Maharashtra State Commission for Women.
Ranveer’s bold photo shoot has drawn criticism for violating the “dignity of women and small children,” as per the complaint.
According to Zoom, the complainant, Advocate Ashish Rai, has stated that the Women’s Commission should take action under suo-moto cognizance and also that Ranveer should delete the contentious images from his social media account.
Previously, a FIR was filed out against actor at the Chembur police station under IPC sections 293 (sale of obscene objects to young persons), 509 (word, gesture), and 293 (obscenity, sale or exhibition publicly of material for sale).
ETimes asked advocate Hitesh Jain about the legal implications of this naked shoot, he said, “In today’s times, no one can prevent people from filing a FIR, but at the end of the day, we have to see if the ingredient in the FIR constitutes an offence. I mean, it’s not even remotely offensive. The court will not uphold this case. It might evoke a little curiosity, but nothing more.”
“In Aveek Sarkar’s case, a test was used in which a person was discovered to be nude. There have been countless instances just like that. Even if you pose naked, it won’t be considered obscenity. Ranveer Singh is not at all at fault,” added Hitesh Jain (Ranveer’s Advocate).
