The complainant, Advocate Ashish Rai has stated that the Women’s commission should take action under the suo-moto cognizance and that Ranveer should delete the controversial pictures from his social media account, reports Zoom. Previously, an FIR was filed against the actor at the Chembur police station under under IPC section 292 (obscenity, sale or exhibiting publicly material for sale), section 293 (sale of obscene objects to young persons), and section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult modesty of women).
When ETimes reached out to advocate Hitesh Jain on the legal implications of this nude shoot, he said, “In today’s times, nobody can prevent people from filing an FIR, but at the end of the day we have to see whether the ingredient in the FIR makes an offence. I mean it is nowhere making any offence. This case will not hold in court. It can evoke some curiosity but it will not go beyond that. In Aveek Sarkar’s case, there was test that was applied where a person was found nude. And there have been umpteen cases like that. Even if you pose nude it will not amount to obscenity. Ranveer Singh is absolutely not guilty.”
