In continuation to the report, the petitioner has alleged that Singh's image on the magazine's cover page is nothing but obscene as per public opinion at large. She added that the naked picture of the actor would deprave the mind of the public, especially minors.

Moreover, a representation had also been moved by the same petitioner earlier, before respondents number 1 to 3 (State of West Bengal, Principal Secretary, Department of Information and Cultural Affairs and Electronics and Secretary, Department of Information and Cultural Affairs and Electronics) for blocking public access to the magazine's official website, specifically in West Bengal.

The Bajirao Mastaani actor is already facing an FIR in Maharashtra for posting his nude photographs on social media platforms. The FIR was lodged under the Indian Penal Code, 1860 Sections 292, 293, and 509 and Section 67A of the Informaton Technology Act, 2000.
