Bollywood star Akshay Kumar was recently arrested by the Mumbai police on the charges of display of obscenity in public. Kumar was subsequently released on bail.
“Akshay, who arrived in Mumbai from abroad, surrendered before the police today. He was accompanied by his lawyer,” a senior police officer told a news agency.
“We arrested him under Indian Penal Code Section 294, which deals with obscenity in public. Since it is a bailable offence, he was released on bail,” the officer is quoted as saying.
You might remember the fuss that was created by the incident which happened during last month’s Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai. Akshay walked down the ramp and asked his wife, Twinkle Khanna, to unbutton his jeans in front of media (check out the video below).
While Twinkle reluctantly obliged to the act, their friends and the viewers had a hearty laugh at the ‘obscene’ incident. A civil lawyer, however, didn’t seem to agree with the act and filed a case against the celebrity couple.
Twinkle was arrested and released at the same time but Akshay was arrested just recently, as he was out of the country for a whole month, to shoot for the movie De Dana Dan, in Singapore.
Meanwhile, the latest buzz is that Akshay will be teaming up with Aishwarya Rai in their upcoming movie ‘Action Replay’. This will be their first movie together after a long gap of almost six years. The last movie was Khakee, directed by Rajkumar Santoshi.
Action Replay is based on a 1994 Gujarati play and is said to be a remake of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
