Akshay Kumar's wife, Twinkle Khanna, was arrested by the Vakola police and released on a cash bail of Rs 950 late on Wednesday for supposedly obscene behavior at the Lakme Fashion Show held at a Santa Cruz hotel a few days back.
Police officers said Twinkle was with her lawyer Bhairav Choudhary when she surrendered. A huge crowd gathered outside the police station and it stayed for the couple of hours she spent at the Vakola police station.
Assistant commissioner of police in the Vakola division Arvind Mahabdi said: ''It was a bailable offence and we released her on a bail of Rs 950 at the police station itself. We are now waiting for Akshay.'' A person, claiming to be a social worker, had supposed that husband and wife had behaved in an obscene and offensive manner and action should be made against them.
Akshay Kumar also faces arrest on the same charges. The duo and organizers of the fashion show have been booked under section 294 IPC (obscene act and songs), police said.
Twinkle told police that Akshay was abroad on a professional assignment and would come to the police station to complete some legal paperwork as soon as he returns next week.
Police officers, however, said they might not pursue the case as it was very ''weak in law''.
An officer said, ''Akshay's trouser was supposed to be unbuttoned by some other woman on the ramp but Akshay went to wife Twinkle."
The act had Akshay walking down the ramp at Lakme Fashion show last week for designer Tarun Tahiliani when he suddenly stopped in front of his wife who was seated in the front row and asked her to unbutton his jeans.
In case you missed it or if you want to see it again, the video below shows Akshay Kumar walking down the ramp during Lakme Fashion Week. See if you can spot this endeavor.
Now we want your opinion on this matter. Do you think Akshay Kumar and his wife really deserve to be facing some charges for this act? Give us your comments on this mishap.
