Vivek Agnihotri on FIR over Ranveer Singh’s nude photoshoot: Getting attention for no reason

‘There are so many nude pictures of women, does it hurt the sentiments of men?’ said The Kashmir Files director 

Published: 28th July 2022

Ranveer Singh’s nude photos have become the talk of the town. After the photoshoot with Paper magazine, Ranveer’s birthday suit was a subject of both news debates and social media trolling alike. An FIR was also registered against the Befikre actor over the photos for ‘insulting the modesty of women.’

Now, Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri has commented on the issue. Calling the FIR as ‘stupid’, Vivek said that the matter ‘is getting too much attention without reason.’

“It is a very stupid FIR. This is such an amusing case, which is getting attention without any reason. It is written in the FIR that the sentiment of women is being hurt. Now tell me, when there are so many nude pictures of women, does it hurt the sentiments of men? This is such a stupid argument,” Vivek said in an interview with Aaj Tak.

Vivek further defended Ranveer for choosing to do a nude photoshoot and said that the human body was the ‘most beautiful creation of God’. He also said that the negative reactions show ‘very conservative thinking.’

“Human bodies have always been appreciated in our culture. I would say that the human body is the most beautiful creation of God. What’s wrong with that? I do not like such things. It shows very conservative thinking which I do not support,” he said.

Earlier, Swara Bhasker had also commented on the FIR and called it ‘foolish’.“Unbelievable foolishness and unemployment is rampant in our country!” She wrote. A few days ago, she had also reacted to the debate around Ranveer’s pictures, and tweeted, “Daily cases of injustice & oppression in India, but sure.. our outrage is reserved for @RanveerOfficial’s photos! I mean, seriously… don’t like it, don’t look at it! Not your cup of tea, don’t drink it! But don’t ‘thopo (impose)’ your preferences on us! And no, this isn’t a moral issue!”
