A local Hindu organisation in Chennai has lodged a police complaint against actress Shriya, who starred opposite Rajnikanth in the Tamil blockbuster, Sivaji-The Boss, objecting to the outfit worn by her during the 175th day celebration of the film.
In a complaint, the Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK) alleged that Shriya’s outfit had ‘offended Hindu culture,’ police said.
The complaint was under investigation, they said. The outfit had been called to the police station for questioning, but had arrogantly refused, hurling a stream of expletives at the police officer who delivered the summons.
Ok, fine, I made that last line up. But not the rest of it. Sigh.
