New Delhi: Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh recorded his statement to the Mumbai Police on Monday in connection with a case filed against him for posting naked pictures of himself online, according to an official.
In Mumbai’s Chembur police station, a First Information Report (FIR) was filed against Ranveer Singh last month as a result of a complaint made by an official of a non-governmental organisation (NGO). He was then given a summons by the police to participate in the case investigation.
Around seven in the morning on Monday, the actor showed up before the investigating officer, and his statement was taken down, the official said.
The FIR was filed by the Mumbai Police in accordance with several sections of the Indian Penal Code, including sections 292 (sale of obscene books, etc.), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), 509 (word, gesture, or act intended to insult a woman’s modesty), and provisions of the Information Technology Act.
On July 21, pictures from Ranveer’s photo shoot were shared online. Ranveer can be seen in them with no clothing on. He was depicted lying on a rug naked in one of the pictures, emulating Burt Reynolds’ well-known image.
