Midway between Akshay's ramp walk for Levi he walked toward his wife Twinkle who was seated in the audience, and requested her to unbutton him. She was initially shocked, but got over it soon enough to unbutton him. The act was not pre-planned. Akshay just decided to add a bold twist to unveil the new Levi's brand "Unbuttoned". Though the act was for pure entertainment, the social activists in the audience took serious offense. They could not understand how an actor who had just been honored with the Padma Shri award could do something so obscene.
Anil Nair, a social activist filed a written complain against the actor, his wife, the show organizer and the hotel management. He also provided video footage of the show to the Police. He requested the complain be booked under section 292 :sale of obscene objects, and section 293: sale of obscene objects to young persons. The police is currently investigating the matter and would take proper action.
As for Akshay he has made a public apology for hurting people's sentiments unknowingly. Did Akshay really commit a crime or is the social activist taking it a little too far?
