Mumbai: A police complaint has been filed against Kareena Kapoor and two others in Maharashtra’s Beed city on Wednesday.
The top Bollywood actress has been accused of hurting religious by a Christian group, which has taken objection to the title of Kareena’s recently launched book on pregnancy.
In the complaint submitted at Shivaji Nagar police station in Beed, Alpha Omega Christian Mahasangh president Ashish Shinde has referred to the book ‘Pregnancy Bible’, which has been written by Kareena and Aditi Shah Bhimjani, and published by Juggernaut Books.
Shinde has said that the holy word ‘Bible’, which has been used in the book’s title, has hurt the sentiments of Christians.
Shinde has asked for a case to be registered under IPC section 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) against the trio, including Kareena.
“We have received the complaint but no case can be registered here, as the incident has not happened here (in Beed). I have advised him to file a complaint in Mumbai,” Shivaji Nagar police station in-charge Inspector Sainath Thombre was quoted as saying by PTI.
Kareena, who launched the book last week, said the book is a personal account of what she experienced physically and emotionally through her two pregnancies.
Kareena, who is married to actor Saif Ali Khan, gave birth to a second baby boy recently.
