Mumbai: Kareena Kapoor Khan, Bollywood actress who recently has given birth to her second baby boy ‘Jeh’ has landed herself in big trouble after a Christian group has taken objection to the title of her book and filed a police complaint in Beed city of Maharashtra against her and two others on Wednesday, accusing them of hurting religious sentiments of the community, as per an official.
The actress had co-authored a book titled ‘Pregnancy Bible’, where she talked about her personal experience of what she felt physically and emotionally through both her pregnancies. However, it seems the word ‘Bible’ in its title didn’t go down well with many and book day after its launch created controversy.
The complaint was filed by president of Alpha Omega Christian Mahasangh, Ashish Shinde, at the Shivaji Nagar Police Station in Beed, where he referred to the title of the book, ‘Pregnancy Bible’ as “outrageous” and “insulting” to the Christian community.
The holy word ‘Bible’ has been used in the book’s title and this has hurt religious sentiments of Christians, he has said. Shinde has sought registration of a case under IPC section 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) against the actress and the two others. A police official confirmed receiving the complaint, but said no FIR has been filed.
However, the case couldn’t be registered at Beed police station. Shivaji Nagar Police Station in-charge Inspector Sainath Thombre said, “We have received the complaint but no case can be registered here as the incident has not happened here (in Beed). I have advised him to file a complaint in Mumbai.”
For the unversed, Kareena launched her book on July 9. She called it her third child. The 40-year-old actress, who gave birth to her second child in February this year, shared a series of posts to promote the book on social media. The book is authored by Kareena Kapoor and Aditi Shah Bhimjani, and published by Juggernaut Books.
Meanwhile on the professional front, Kareena will next be seen in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ opposite Aamir Khan. Apart from that, she also has Karan Johar’s period drama, ‘Takht’ in her kitty.
