Bollywood star Akshay Kumar arrested over 'obscenity' - Mr.Bhat - 05-18-2009

Police in the Indian city, which is home to the Bollywood film industry, said that a complaint had been lodged against Kumar and his wife, Twinkle Khanna, after she was photographed unbuttoning a pair of jeans that the actor was modelling on the catwalk at the Lakme Fashion Week in March.
"I can confirm that Akshay Kumar came to Vakola police station at 8.30 am with his lawyer and surrendered himself," said Arvind Mahdadi, the assistant commissioner of police.

"He was arrested under section 294 of Indian Penal Code and was given bail."
Khanna was arrested and bailed last month.
Kumar, 41, whose dozens of films include the 1994 hit Mohra, has said he did not mean to cause any offence by his actions and apologised.
The arrest came as he returned to India after filming abroad.
"The news blew up when I was away," he said.
"I just want to make it home from the airport without my car being egged by all those who have never been unbuttoned by their wives."
Kumar was recently seen in the first Hindi-language film to be shot on location in China, Chandni Chowk to China, which was poorly received by audiences and critics.
