Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: After Alia Bhatt, Vidya Balan has now come out in aid of actor Ranveer Singh over his debatable nude photoshoot.
While speaking to the media at Kubbra Sait’s e-book launch on Thursday, Vidya gave a hilarious response whilst she changed into requested if she appreciated Ranveer’s bare photographs and what she thinks about it. “What is the problem in that? This is the first time a man has done something like this. Hume bhi aankhein sekhne dijiye (Let us also feast our eyes),” she said.
On Tuesday, an FIR was registered against Ranveer on a criticism filed at the Chembur Police Station. Reportedly the case has been filed after receiving criticism by means of an office-bearer of the NGO who had alleged that the actor hurt the emotions of women along with his nude pics.
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 younger humans), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and provisions of the Information Technology Act.
When asked further about FIR being filed in opposition to Ranveer, Vidya stated, “Maybe they (people who filed the FIR) don’t have much work to do, hence they are wasting their time on these things. If you don’t like it, then close the paper or throw it, do what you wish to. Why get into an FIR?”
The pictures from Ranveer’s photoshoot for Paper Magazine were published online on July 21. In the photographs, Ranveer is visible carrying no clothes. In one of the images, he became visible lying on a rug naked recreating Burt Reynold’s well-known photograph.
In an interview, as quoted by way of an Instagram page that is going by means of the call DietSabya, Ranveer stated, “I work f****** hard. I need to wear best shit. “I work f****** hard. I want to wear nice shit. Eat my f****** a**, I will wear nice f****** shit. I bust my balls, I work 20-hour days. I’m not complaining — I’m only too happy and too grateful — but I go f****** hard. I will f****** buy Gucci, I will wear it from head to toe. Anybody who judges me can eat my f****** a**.”
On Wednesday, another complaint was filed against Ranveer before the Maharashtra State Commission for Women.
As per complainant Ashish Rai, an advocate, Ranveer’s pictures are against the “dignity of women and small children.” He demanded his nude photos be deleted from social media. Through the complaint, demand has also been made to the Women’s Commission to take action under suo-motu cognizance.
