New Delhi: A non-governmental organisation (NGO) in Madhya Pradesh`s Indore organised a clothing drive to “donate” clothes for actor Ranveer Singh, whose nude photoshoot for a magazine sparked outrage.
The locals are donating clothing into a box that has nude images of the actor from the photoshoot. They are gathered at a location where the NGO named “Neki Ki Deewar” held a cloth donation drive.
According to the locals, people in the country follow Ranveer Singh, however, they “do not want the youth to follow what he has done”.
An FIR was registered against Singh on a complaint filed at the Chembur Police Station. Reportedly, the case has been filed after receiving the complaint by an office-bearer of the NGO who had alleged that the actor hurt the sentiments of women with his nude photos.
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 young people), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and provisions of the Information Technology Act.
The images from Ranveer`s photo shoot for Paper Magazine were posted online on July 21. In the images, Ranveer is seen wearing no clothes. In one of the images, he was seen lying on a rug naked recreating Burt Reynold`s famous photograph.
