Vidya Balan to be booked for obscenity in ‘The Dirty Picture’

Controversies continue to dog The Dirty Picture with a city court directing police to book actor Vidya Balan for posing indecently in photographs for the film posters and promos.  Nampally criminal court in Andhra Pradesh ordered the Nallakunta police station in the city to book a criminal case against the Bollywood star.  The court passed the orders on a petition filed by an advocate SK Azad.  The judge asked police to book the actor under relevant sections of Indian Penal Code and also under Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, 1986.  Police was also asked to take action against public display of posters and promotional advertisements of the controversial movie.  The petitioner said the posters and hoardings of the film were spoiling the minds of the people and causing harm to the society.  Produced by Balaji Telefilms, starring Vidya, Naseeruddin Shah, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor, the film was released all over the country on Friday.  There have been protests by anti-obscenity activists in parts of Hyderabad and other towns in the state during last two days.  The film before its release had landed into trouble when former south Indian actress Silk Smitha’s brother V Naga Varaprasad Rao moved the Andhra Pradesh High Court, objecting to the way her late sister was portrayed in the film.  The court on December 1 refused to stop the film’s release after the filmmaker denied that it is based on Silk Smitha’s life.
