Jaipur: Looks like the year 2012 is turning out to be a jinxed phase in the lives of Bollywood actors. Bollywood bigwigs have been courting trouble for themselves by getting embroiled in controversies that perhaps could have been averted. Shah Rukh, Saif Ali Khan, Priyanka Chopra have all been hugely talked about this season, for all the wrong reasons. And the one to follow suit is Ranbir Kapoor.
The Kapoor boy, who was shooting with Deepika Padukone in Rajasthan for ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’, has been summoned by a court in Udaipur on June 26 for smoking in public.
Harish Vaishnav lodged a complaint with a court in Udaipur after seeing pictures of Ranbir smoking were published in vernacular newspapers. A complaint under CrPC Section (156(3)) at a local court has been lodged.
Talking to a leading daily, Harendra Singh, in-charge, Ghanta Ghar police station, said, “A copy of the summons reached us on Saturday evening. He is being booked for violation of Section 5 of Rajasthan Prevention of Smoking Act. Our personnel will visit the actor in Mumbai next week to hand over the summons to him.”
