The actor has been summoned on June 26 by a Udaipur court for smoking on the sets of his upcoming film Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, reports NDTV. The actor would be booked for violating Section 5 of the Rajasthan Prevention of Smoking Act.
While Ranbir and Deepika Padukone were shooting for Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani in Udaipur, a local daily published images of RK smoking on May 28, 2012. Reacting to these images, Harish Vaishnav lodged a complaint under CrPC Section 156(3) at a local court in Udaipur. As a result, Ranbir has been summoned by the court on June 26, 2012.
Talking to a leading daily, Harendra Singh, in-charge, Ghanta Ghar police station, said, “A copy of the summons reached us on Saturday evening. He is being booked for violation of Section 5 of Rajasthan Prevention of Smoking Act. Our personnel will visit the actor in Mumbai next week to hand over the summons to him.”
This comes Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan too got into legal hassle for smoking in public at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur. But, a smart Khan, handled the situation by agreeing to pay a fine for his wrong act. Well, it looks like the Bollywood actors are having a tough time in Rajasthan.
