Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar was arrested and later released on bail for allegedly indulging in obscene behaviour during a fashion show in Mumbai during the Lakme Fashion Week held in March.
“Akshay, who arrived in Mumbai from abroad, surrendered before the police today. He was accompanied by his lawyer,” a senior police officer said.
“He was then arrested under section 294 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code for his alleged obscene behaviour,” the officer added.
Akshay’s wife Twinkle was also arrested under the same charges last month and immediately released on bail.
Akshay Kumar, his wife Twinkle and the organiser were booked after an “unbuttoning” act during the Lakme India Fashion week.
Twinkle had unbuttoned Akshay’s jeans in public when he asked her to do so while he was on the ramp.
A Mumbai-based social worker had lodged a police complaint against Akshay, Twinkle and the organisers for his alleged obscene behaviour in public.
