Thane: Former porn star and Bollywood actress Sunny Leone is in trouble. A right-wing outfit has filed an FIR against Sunny for 'promoting obscenity' through her website.
The outfit Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on Friday demanded the deportation of former Sunny and barring her future entry into India for displaying what it terms vulgarity on her website and insulting the dignity of women.
The HJS lodged a first information report (FIR) with Sunil Shivarkar, head of Ramnagar police station in Dombivali in Thane, said HJS spokesman Uday Dhuri.
"The FIR was registered by our local representative Anjali Palan and others. Besides, we have already registered over a dozen similar complaints in various districts of Maharashtra and in Goa in the past one week but police have not taken any action so far," Dhuri told IANS.
Accusing Sunny Leone - who now works in Bollywood movies - of promoting vulgarity through nude and provocative pictures posted on her website (www.sunnyleone.com), he said this was corrupting the Indian youth, spoiling the young and insulting the dignity of Indian women.
Although there is a disclaimer on the website, its useless since even children were able to view the website content, he said.
"Last week when we lodged a complaint in Navi Mumbai, Police Commissioner K.L. Prasad said she is promoting her own pictures. He advised us to concentrate on other issues like toilets for women," Dhuri said.
Pointing out how Leone waa influencing the masses, Dhuri cited recent news reports to say that she exceeds even the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on global search engines like Google.
"This is a dangerous trend," Dhuri said.
The HJS has demanded a ban on her website and said Sunny Leone should be deported from India and barred entering the country.
