Bollywood actor Rakhi Sawant has been booked for wearing a dress with pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in August, police said.

The First Information Report was lodged at a police station in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district, over 350 km from Jaipur.

"The FIR was lodged on Thursday evening by a local resident against the actor. The complainant said by wearing the particular dress, she not only insulted the Prime Minister but also indulged in obscenity," a police official from Kankroli Police station in Rajsamand told IANS on phone.

"We registered the case under the Indian Penal Code provisions and started investigations," the official added.

Rakhi is known to be controversy’s favourite child and this is not the first time she is making news.

Following the alleged suicide of popular TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee, Sawant had called for a ban on ceiling fans saying that they were the reason why so many women were committing suicide.
