AThe offensive ad: Ranveer has insulted women says the lawyer
Delhi lawyer has filed a complaint with the National Commission of Women (NCW) against Ranveer Singh for being a part of the sexist Jack and Jones ad.
The lawyer has said that Ranveer has insulted women in the advertisement of menswear company, which presented them in a derogatory manner.
He has also requested the NCW to issue a notice to the brand as well as the Bollywood actor, according to reports.
The lawyer, Gaurav Gulati, was quoted as saying in reports, “I have seen an advertisement hoarding of Jack & Jones company on social media and some online news reports in which famous Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh could be seen posing slinging a woman on his shoulder, suggesting that women are nothing more than objects. Then there’s a punch line by the side that says ‘Do Not Hold Back, Take Your Work Home’.”
The lawyer feels that the advertisement is demeaning and is a violation of gender equality.
Ranveer was trolled on social media for the hoardings which were later taken down.
The actor apologized for his mistake.
Ranveer had said in a statement, “It was important to give the brand creative freedom while designing their campaign, but I guess we got it wrong on one of those billboards and I’m sorry this happened but it’s a thing of the past.” – CINEWS
