New Delhi: Ranveer Singh’s recent photoshoot seems to have garnered mixed response from the audiences. While many praised the actor and hailed him as a true trendsetter, others weren’t pleased much.

On Monday, two applications were filed with Mumbai Police seeking the registration of a First Information Report (FIR) against Ranveer Singh for “hurting sentiments of women” through his nude photographs on social media.

The Mumbai Police registered the FIR on Tuesday under various Indian Penal Code Sections 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, an official from the Chembur police station said.

According to officials, the complaints were submitted separately at the Chembur police station by an office-bearer of a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), also based in the east Mumbai suburb, and a woman lawyer.

The NGO office-bearer stated the actor has hurt the sentiments of women in general and insulted their modesty through his photographs, the official said.

The complainant demanded the registration of a case against the actor under the Information Technology Act and various sections of the Indian Penal Code. The application filed by the lawyer, a former journalist, also demanded a case against Ranveer on the charge of intent to outrage the modesty of women.

“We received applications from a person associated with an NGO and a woman lawyer on Monday in this matter. No FIR is registered so far. We are enquiring,” the official said.
