Ranveer Singh has created a lot of buzz with his recent nude photoshoot for Paper magazine. While many celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Lilly Singh, Manish Malhotra and Alia Bhatt have applauded the actor for his bold move, many others are not so happy about it.
In fact, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) and a woman lawyer have filed separate complaints against the actor with Mumbai Police. The complaints have claimed that Ranveer Singh’s nude photos have hurt the sentiments of women.
Nevertheless, it is interesting to note that Ranveer Singh is actually not the first celebrity in the world to pose nude for the camera. Actually, he is also not the first Indian celebrity to do so. In the past decades, despite all the societal norms against them, many Indian stars have shed their clothes for the camera.
