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
"scantily-clad" pictures of South African model Elina
Hamman. The police had then registered a case of
obscenity against six persons, including Bhatt and Singh. The penal action in such cases is imprisonment of at
least two years and a fine of up to Rs 2,000. If the
offence is repeated, the sentence may extend to
five years' imprisonment and a fine of Rs 5,000.
