Complaint filed against Ranveer Singh for 'hurting sentiments of women' with nude photoshoot

Complainant seeks to register an FIR against the actor

Entertainment Desk July 26, 2022

Days after Ranveer Singh posed nude for a magazine, a complaint has been filed against him with the Mumbai Police for “hurting sentiments of women.” The complainant seeks to register an FIR against the actor.

Last week, Ranveer posed naked for India’s Paper Magazine. The Jayeshbhai Jordaar star posed on a Turkish rug, wearing nothing for most photos. As per Indian outlet ANI, the application was submitted on Monday 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 that Ranveer has hurt the sentiments of women and insulted their modesty through his photographs, an official told ANI. They also demanded the registration of a case against Ranveer under the Information Technology Act and various sections of the Indian Penal Code. “We received an application from a person associated with an NGO on Monday. No FIR is registered so far. We are enquiring,” ANI quoted the official as saying.

A day after Ranveer's photos appeared on Paper Magazine, the actor shared them on his own Instagram. He was praised by fellow actors and followers, many of whom called him “brave” for being unapologetically himself. However, many also criticised him for “indecent behaviour”.

Alia Bhatt defended him during a press conference, asserting that she couldn't even tolerate a question about the hate he was suddenly receiving. “I don’t like anything negative being said about my favourite co-star, Ranveer Singh. So, this question itself is something I can’t tolerate. I love him, he’s eternally favourite to every one of us actually. And he has given us so much in the movies. We should only give him love.”
