Ranveer Singh Photoshoot Row: Actor Records His Statement At Chembur Police Station

New Delhi: Ranveer Singh on Monday recorded his statement at Chembur police station in connection with the FIR registered against him for posting his nude photographs on his Instagram account.  Ranveer was summoned to appear before the cops on August 30 but he reached the police station early in the morning today (August 29) to record his statement. 

Ranveer Singh reached the station with his legal team and his statement was recorded for around two hours. Police had a line-up of questions for him like the details of his contract with the magazine for which the actor did the nude photoshoot, where were the pictures shot, and whether Ranveer had any idea that the pictures can hurt the sentiments of the people.  

Ranveer in his statement clarified that he had no idea the photoshoot will land him in trouble and will hurt people’s sentiments. He has been asked to keep cooperating in the investigation. 

On August 12, a team from Mumbai Police had gone to Ranveer’s residence to issue him summon to appear before the police. The actor was reportedly not at his residence and the police were told that he would be back on August 16.  

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 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.
