Mumbai: The Bandra magistrate’s court on Saturday issued a warrant against actor-producer Pooja Bhatt for not appearing before the court in a case registered against her for the posters of the film Rog, which allegedly carried ‘indecent’ pictures.
Advocate Vijendra Jabra, appearing for social activist Vinod Jain who had filed a case against Bhatt, said, “Bhatt did not appear before the court so the court issued a bailable warrant against her.”
In January, a sessions court set aside a magisterial order quashing an FIR against Bhatt, her company Fish Eye, co-producer Sujit Singh and his company, Shreya Creations. On July 14, 2008, the Bandra court discharged Bhatt, Singh and their companies, saying the evidence against them was insufficient. The case dates back to January 2005, when Bhatt’s film Rog was released. A group of people had objected to the posters of the film, which carried pictures of “scantily-clad” South African model Elina Hamman. The police had then registered a case of obscenity against six persons, including Bhatt and Singh.
