Pune: The Pune police have arrested a small time actress and Mumbai model Vandana Ravindra Tiwari alias Gehna Vashist from her residence for wearing bikini made by national flag during a photo –shoot on a beach recently.
The 23-year-old model had sported a bikini along with an Indian flag, draped around the lower part of her body. The Pune police arrested Gehna following a complaint registered against her by Ravindra V. Brahmo, National Secretary LJP (Lok Janshakti party).
Gehna had earlier also made headlines when she promished to Indian olympians to run nude if Indian athlete won a gold medal for India. In this regard, Manohar Joshi, a senior Sub-Inspector posted at Deccan police station said that summons were sent to the model on which she sought for two days time. Unfortunately she did not care to appear even after that period, prompting the cops to send a team to find out about her whereabouts.
The police, however, have denied the reports of her arrest yet. In a similar case a few years back while the World Cup finals was telecast, actress Mandira Bedi's saree became a similar subject of discussion.
Mandira's sari on the occasion had images of national flags of all the cricket-playing nations printed on it. But, the image of the Indian Tricolour was in a rather disrespectful position. Mandira's disrespectful act evoked immense anger and raised serious debates across the nation.
