Television actor Sanil Sodhi arrested for mailing nude photo


Sanil Sodhi is a television actor who is recently in the news for debauchery. He has acted in a few television serials such as “Hum”, “Ladies Special”, “Phir Bhi” and “Rishte”. He also worked at the theatres and been part of Hindi language plays like “Bench Park” and “Raj Darbar”. Recently it had been reported that he was detained.

The Mumbai police have arrested him on the grounds of sending a woman vulgar and lewd photographs and messages through his Blackberry Messenger.

The woman who has received these messages is a thirty-three year old married woman who had been his friend. He had sent about 25 nude photographs of himself to this woman. Hours after sending these messages on Sunday night- Jan 20th- he was arrested by the Mumbai police.

The actor has been charged under the section- 509 of IPC (Indian Penal Code) and section- 67 of ITA (Information Technology Act) for transmitting vulgar content electronically.

Sanil Sodhi has also acted in two Bollywood films. One was “Hu Tu Tu” that starred in the lead roles Suniel Shetty and Tabu. The other was “Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Ma”, which included veteran actors Nandita Das and Jaya Bachchan.

Some time back similar cases had been in the news when small-time actors or filmmakers had to be arrested by the police.

Earlier on Rani Mukerji’s brother Raja Mukerji was reported to have asked for sexual favors from an aspiring television actress named Priya Mishra. He then tried to molest her when she did not give in to his demands.

The girl reported against him to the police after which a medical test was carried out.  A case was then filed under the section of 354 of the IPC (Indian Penal Code). He was then sent to Andheri jail by the police officials.

Bobby Vats who has acted in some serials and has appeared in films such as “Halla Bol”, “Aa Dekhen Zara” and “Kismat Love Paisa Dilli” was in trouble.

His girlfriend of one year who is studying at an engineering college levied against him charges of attempt to rape. The girl had been his live-in partner. She also accused him of brutally beating her up when she battled against his rape attempts.

These small-time actors and filmmakers’ foothold in the television and film industry have been very weak. To add to that these repulsive incidents will only prove fatal for their career.
