Getting Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s wife to unbutton his jeans at the Lakme Fashion Week may have been a smart gimmick, but the actor is in trouble for it.

A Santacruz-based social activist on Thursday filed a written complaint at Vakola police station against the actor, his wife Twinkle Khanna and the event organisers for obscenity in public. The show took place on March 30 at Grand Hyatt in Santacruz.

Akshay has apologised for the publicity stunt. “If I have hurt anyone’s sentiments with my actions, I am sorry because I did not mean to,” he said.

In his complaint, Anil Nair (29) alleged that Akshay Kumar, an idol for the country’s youth, has shamed the nation with his behaviour and he should apologise and return the Padma Shri award he was honoured with on March 31.

“Many mothers complained to me about the indecent behaviour at the show and asked me to take up the matter with the police. It’s the complaint of scores of parents,” Nair said. He said he was not opposed to western culture but to indecent behaviour.

“We have received the complaint and are looking into the matter,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Nisar Tamboli told Hindustan Times.
