Mallika Sherawat receives warrant in alleged obscenity case


Once again, Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat is in the news. On July 9, 2013, one of the local courts issued a bailable warrant against the actress, regarding a case where she has been accused of obscenity. The warrant has been issued by the Vadodara district court, asking her to appear before it on August 19, 2013.


A case has been filed against the actress by Narendra Tiwari, former president of the Baroda Bar Association over an alleged obscene dance performance at a New Year’s Eve event that was held in Mumbai on December 31, 2006. Tiwari filed the suit after he watched her performance on TV channels.

A bailable warrant has been issued to the actress and the management of the five-star hotel where the event was held and they are named as respondents in the case. Summons has been issued to the actress last week to appear in front of the court on Saturday, July 6, 2013. However, Mallika failed to appear, after which Tiwari asked the court to issue a non-bailable warrant against the actress.

After hearing the application, the actress has been issued a bailable warrant. Even in the past, the ‘Khwahish’ actress has been issued with summons regarding the same case.
