“One photo was tampered with & morphed”. This is what Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh told cops in the ongoing nude photoshoot case. News agency ANI reported the claims made by the ‘Jayeshbhai Jordar’ actor earlier on Thursday. The actor had given the statement earlier on August 29 when he appeared in front of the Mumbai police.

For the unversed, a case has been registered against Ranveer Singh for obscenity & insulting women’s modesty under the IT Act 2002 based on a complaint filed by an NGO official. The complaint was filed earlier in July at the Chembur police station, days after Ranveer Singh brewed a storm by appearing in a nude photo shoot for a US-based magazine.

It should be noted that the picture that Singh alleges to be morphed and tampered with, is not part of the seven pictures he had shared on his Instagram account. The one picture that Singh has alleged to be morphed will be sent to forensic laboratory.

Meanwhile, as per an Indian Express report, Ranveer Singh will likely be given a clean chit as the FIR was filed on the basis of the fact that his private parts were visible in one of the photographs. Pictures shared on Instagram does not come in the purview of obscenity as no private parts were visible.
