SC quashes FIR against Malayalam actress Priya Varrier

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday quashed an FIR lodged in Hyderabad against Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier, who shot to fame following her ‘wink song’ from the film “Oru Addar Love”.

It also barred registration of any further FIR against her in connection with the same controversial song in the film which is still under production.

Observing that no case is made out for an offence of hurting any religious sentiments, a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said there was “no sign of blasphemy”.

The court said: “It (song) does not express any calculated tendency to insult or upset moral or public order, no sign of blasphemy.”
