New Delhi: It seems the entire controversy around Ranveer Singh’s nude photoshoot is not dying down anytime soon. In the latest development, a team from Mumbai Police on Friday went to Ranveer’s residence to issue him summon to appear before the police in connection with an FIR registered against him for posting his nude photographs on his Instagram account.
The actor was reportedly not at his residence and the police were told that he would be back on August 16. He has reportedly been summoned to appear before the cops to record his statement on August 22.
An FIR was registered against the actor for “hurting sentiments of women” under sections 509, 292, and 294 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 67 A of the IT Act after the president of a city-based NGO lodged a complaint with the police.
Ranveer did the much-talked-about shoot for PAPER magazine. In the photos, the actor can be seen sleeping on a Turkish rug in a replica of Burt Reynolds’ iconic portrait in one of the photos. On a different cover, he posed in his underwear for the camera. He can also be seen in a variety of positions.
In the magazine interview, Ranveer discussed his work, his style, and his comfort with being nude.
He told PAPER magazine, “It’s so easy for me to be physically naked, but in some of my performances I’ve been damn f**king naked. You can see my f**king soul. How naked is that? That’s being actually naked. I can be naked in front of a thousand people, I don’t give a shit. It’s just that they get uncomfortable.”
Regarding his career, Ranveer was most recently seen in the film ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’. He is now working on a handful of different film projects. He is now working with Alia Bhatt on the film ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’, which is being directed by Karan Johar. His next project is Rohit Shetty’s ‘Cirkus’ with Jacqueline Fernandes and Pooja Hegde.
