Janhvi Kapoor was attending an event in Delhi on Friday, when she was asked to comment on Ranveer Singh's nude photoshoot. She defended Ranveer and his freedom as an artist as she reacted to the matter.
In a video shared by Pinkvilla, Janhvi said, "I think it's artistic freedom and I don't think anyone should be penalised for their artistic freedom." Several other celebrities from the film industry have defended Ranveer amidst the backlash. Parineeti Chopra, who made her acting debut with the Ranveer-starrer Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, told Bombay Times that Ranveer is a true artiste and she does not think any other actor would have been able to do the photoshoot. Vaani Kapoor, who appeared opposite Ranveer in Befikre, added, "Ranveer’s an artiste and a great one at that. He’s experimental and open with the right aesthetics and sensibilities."
Ranveer's Gully Boy co-star Alia Bhatt said at an event that she did not want to hear anything negative about her 'favourite' Ranveer Singh. Vidya Balan had a hilarious reaction, when asked about her take on his nude pictures, and told the media, “Arre kya problem hai? Pahli baar koi aadmi aisa kar raha hai, hum logo ko bhi aankhein sekhne dijiye na (What's the problem. A man is doing it for the first time, let us also enjoy this)." Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri called the police complaint against the actor 'stupid' and ‘amusing’.
