Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor landed in controversy after posting a nude photo of a child on his Twitter account, following which an NGO filed a written complaint with the Mumbai Cyber Police.

Initially, the reports suggested the NGO had filed an FIR but cops have now clarified that there was no case registered by them.

The actor removed the post within a day of posting it. While sharing his thoughts in a sarcastic way on a social issue, he posted a nude boy’s photo along with a message. However the method of spreading the message did not go down well with a local Mumbai based NGO who works for underprivileged children.
