Indian media reports that Ranveer Singh claimed in his statement to the Mumbai Police on 29 August 2022 that his photo was tampered with and morphed.

Earlier, in his interview with the Paper magazine, Ranveer Singh spoke about how the pandemic left a deep impact on him.

He said:

“Everything’s gone to shit. I understand that this journey of life is an agonizing f**king journey. It’s agonizing to just exist. I am hyper-sensitive to everything around me, it’s just the way I am, it’s how I’m wired.”

Ranveer Singh has further added:

“It’s so easy for me to be physically naked, but in some of my performances I’ve been damn f*ing naked. You can see my f*ing soul. How naked is that? That’s being actually naked. I can be naked in front of a thousand people, I don’t give a s*t. It’s just that they get uncomfortable.”

Some praised the Bollywood superstar while others used social media to post various reactions and rib-tickling memes since the release of the naked pictures.

The police case was registered under sections pertaining to obscenity and insulting the modesty of women, and under the Information Technology Act, at the Chembur police station in July 2022.
