Twinkle Khanna was arrested by the Vakola police in Mumbai yesterday evening. She was taken to the police station and questioned in respect of her behaviour at the Lakme Fashion Show when she unbuttoned husband Akshay Kumar’s jeans at his request. Akshay was walking the ramp at the time as part of Tarun Tahiliani’s Levi’s Range. Akshay is the brand ambassador for Levi’s Live Unbuttoned range.
Accompanied by her lawyer, Twinkle was released on bail of just Rs 950. Akshay, who is filming out of town, did not accompany her but will present himself to the police on his return. Assistant Commissioner of Police, Arvind Mahabdi, said, “It was a bailable offense and we released her on a bail of Rs 950 at the police station. We are now waiting for Akshay.” Police, however, were doubtful that the case would be pursued as it was “very weak in law.”
Originally, the plan was for a model to unbutton Akshay but he shooed her off and asked his wife to do it instead. Campaigner Anil Nair complained to the police that Akshay had performed an “obscene” act in full public view.
A popular actress in the 1990s, Twinkle is best remembered for her roles in Barsaat with Bobby Deol, International Khiladi with soon-to-be husband Akshay Kumar and Jodi No.1 with Sanjay Dutt, Govinda and Monica Bedi. She married Akshay eight years ago and retired from the industry, concentrating instead on building her interior design business.
