Bollywood actor Vaani Kapoor does not fall behind when it comes to her style statements and sartorial choices. Leading the pack on the fashion front, she is surely a fashionista to watch out for. Be it red carpet appearances, award ceremonies or casual lunch and dinner soirees, the starlet are always dressed to impress. In a recent turn of events, however, Vaani has come under scrutiny for one particular outfit she sported this week. Posting an image of the same ensemble on social media, she came under fire for wearing a rather revealing blouse with the word ‘Ram’ written on it. Shri Ram – one of the names of a Hindu god – is a sacred symbol for righteous followers of the religion.
Vaani uploaded a picture of herself on Instagram, clad in the said attire, and deleted it soon after she started receiving ample hate in the comments section. She was slammed for hurting religious sentiments. Now, a complaint has been filed against the actor by a Mumbai resident, Rama Sawant, for the same. The FIR filed in Mumbai's NM Joshi Marg police station and the Mumbai police commissioner alleges that Vaani has betrayed Hinduism with her choice of clothing.
Sawant said she was called by police to record her statement in the case. Her letter read, "The undersigned is an ardent devotee of Lord Shri Ram’. The undersigned has come across a photograph of Bollywood actress by name Ms Vaani Kapoor on her Instagram, where under, she is found in vulgar cloth in semi-nude position and over her body and more particularly from her shoulder to breast, she is found to be wearing blouse/brassiere made out a cloth-like Ramnami, in as much as the names of Lord Shri Ram has been described containing ‘Shri Ram’, which denotes to Lord Shri Ram." It continued, "In view of the facts set out hereinabove, and law enunciated by the Honourable Apex Court and so also various high courts of the Country including Hon’ble High Court, Bombay, you are requested to forthwith register an FIR against actress Vaani Kapoor for an offence punishable u/s. 215A of IPC and take further legal action so that she is brought to book/punished in accordance with the law.” Vaani has not responded to the complaint yet.
