Friday, December 9, 2011 • Tamil Comments

It is an issue which might explode into a controversy.  We should not be surprised even if some tv debates are aired around it.  This has been triggered by a case slapped on Vidya in mana Hyderabad.

Nampally criminal courts ordered the Nallakunta police station in the city to book a criminal case against Vidya. The court has passed the order following a petition filed by an advocate S. K. Azad.

The judge asked police to book the actress 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 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 Dirty Picture' was released all over the country Friday.

There have been protests by anti-obscenity activists in parts of Hyderabad and other towns in the state during last two days.
