Ranveer Singh booked by Mumbai Police over nude photo shoot

The actor was alleged hurting the sentiments of women in general and insulted their modesty through his photographs

A First Information Report (FIR) has been registered against actor Ranveer Singh by the Mumbai Police on Tuesday over his nude pictures on social media, an official said.

A Mumbai-based non-governmental organisation (NGO) had approached Chembur police in Mumbai with a complaint against the actor.

Based on it, the police registered the FIR against Ranveer 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, an official from the Chembur police station said.

An office-bearer of the NGO had alleged that the actor hurt the sentiments of women in general and insulted their modesty through his photographs, police had earlier said.

Ranveer Singh, a recipient of several awards, is known for his roles in films like Bajirao MastaniPadmaavat and Gully Boy.

Last Thursday, the actor's nude pictures, which were for the shoot of a foreign magazine, were posted on his social media accounts like Instagram and went viral, according to police.

Later, the NGO and a woman lawyer submitted separate complaints against the actor at Chembur police station.

The application filed by the lawyer, a former journalist, had also demanded a case against Ranveer on the charge of intent to outrage the modesty of women, police earlier said.
