Publicised for his bare dare act in the movies 'Dostana' and 'New York', the model turned actor has landed himself in a messy soup this time.
A Delhi city court has asked the police to lodge a report on a complaint seeking registration of a criminal case against him for posing allegedly nude in a photograph published in a daily.
"Since the complaint alleges commission of cognisable offences under Section 292 and 294 (relating to spread of obscene material) of the Indian Penal Code, the SHO is directed to file his report within two weeks," the court said.
C.M. Dua, who runs an NGO, sought registration of a FIR against John as well as the publisher and the editor of the daily.
"....the lascivious, prurient and obscene acts and photographs being published and shown by established members of society and publication house... tend to corrupt young minds, which is very dangerous and suicidal for the coming generation, if not taken care of," Dua mentioned in his petition.
He said he was appalled to find the magazine supplement of the daily dated June 11, 2009, carrying a "nude photograph" of Abraham at the study desk of his children.
Dua said that as the police had not paid hue to his complaint, he approached the court.
