A Madurai court ordered non-bailable arrest warrants for Bollywood actresses Shilpa Shetty and Reema Sen accusing them of "posing in an obscene manner." The editor of the Murugan newspaper that published the photos was also issued a warrant.

The dusky actress Shetty, a native of Tamil Nadu, appeared in film stills with a traditional sari exposing her navel!
Shetty complained: "If navel-showing is obscenity, then our traditional Indian outfit - the traditional sari - should be banned in the first place."
