Kareena Kapoor Khan, the Hindi actor, who had recently announced her book, Pregnancy Bible, is faced with a police complaint filed by a Christian group that has taken objection to the book’s title, PTI reported.
According to PTI, a police complaint was filed on Wednesday in Beed city of Maharashtra against Kapoor Khan and two others, accusing them of hurting the religious sentiments of a community. Alpha Omega Christian Mahasangh president Ashish Shinde submitted the complaint at the Shivaji Nagar Police Station over the book, which is co-authored by Aditi Shah Bhimjani.
Shinde’s complaint specified that the title of the book Pregnancy Bible, published by Juggernaut Books, has the holy word ‘Bible’ in it and this has hurt their religious sentiments. He 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 actor and the others.
However, no FIR has been filed against any of the parties.
Talking to PTI, 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).”
The actor shared the first look of her book on Friday, and wrote, “This has been quite the journey… both my pregnancies and writing my Pregnancy Bible. There were good days and bad days; some days I was raring to go to work and others where I struggled to get out of bed. This book is a very personal account of what I experienced both physically and emotionally through both my pregnancies.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, she will next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha alongside Aamir Khan. The film, which is being directed by Advait Chandan, was earlier set to release on Christmas 2020, but was postponed to Christmas 2021 as the shooting was halted several times due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
