Ashkay Kumar released on bail

Bollywood star Akshay Kumar released on bail

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has been released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of obscene behaviour at a recent fashion show.If you read my last entry about Akshay I wrote about his Levi catwalk show when he asked his wife to unbutton his jeans and it went down like a lead balloon.

Subsequenty a  complaint of obscenity was subsequently lodged with police  and a sharp take of breath as well and it beggars the question why ?

Kumar is the brand ambassador of Levi’s “Unbuttoned” range and one of Bollywood’s most popular stars.  He did apologise, saying he did not mean to cause any offence by his actions.   Last week  he visited Mumbai’s Vakola police station where the complaint was registered, an officer told the BBC.   The star was arrested and immediately released on bail. The case is expected to be heard in court at a later date.

During his catwalk appearance at Lakme India Fashion Week in April, Akshay Kumar walked up to his wife, Twinkle Khanna, who was seated in the front row, and asked her to undo the top button of his jeans.

The case against him was filed by Anil P Nayar, a social worker, who says the unbuttoning of the jeans was “vulgar and indecent”.   In an interview with the Hindustan Times newspaper published last week, Kumar apparently made light of the complaint.   “I just want to make it home… without my car being egged by all those who have never been unbuttoned by their wives,” he said.
