Ranveer Singh has landed himself into another trouble as an application was filed with Mumbai Police on Monday seeking the registration of a First Information Report (FIR) against him. He is being accused of “hurting sentiments of women” through his nude photographs on social media, an official said. The complaint application was submitted at the Chembur police station by an office-bearer of a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), also based in the east Mumbai suburb.
The complainant stated the actor has hurt the sentiments of women and insulted their modesty through his photographs, the official said.
The complainant demanded the registration of a case against the actor under the Information Technology Act and various sections of the Indian Penal Code.
A part of the complaint application read, “….Ranveer Singh has posted the photos on his personal Instagram and twitter accounts. This clearly shows that he has nothing to do with the Indian culture and he is least bothered about the people living in the country and abroad but his only concern is to earn crores of rupees by damaging cultures and traditions of India.”
“The actors like Ranveer Singh can go to any extent for getting publicity. By doing this act, the actor has crossed all limits of a cultured and gentlemen person. I have two daughters and four other girls in my family and I kept saying them to not open any social media and google news.”
“In view of the above, I would like to lodge a complaint against Ranveer Singh under section 354 and 509 of Indian Penal Code for outraging the modesty of women. As this act of the accused person created shame in the eyes of the Womens at large and publishing and transmitting sexually explicit act material”, it read further.
“We received an application from a person associated with an NGO on Monday. No FIR is registered so far. We are enquiring,” the official said.
For the unversed, Ranveer Singh became the talk of the town after he shared his nude pictures from his latest photoshoot with the Paper magazine recently. In the photos, Ranveer is seen posing on a Turkish rug, wearing nothing. In no time, the pictures for the shoot went viral on social media platforms.
