Report by Santanu Ganguly, New Delhi: Controversial model Gehana Vasisth who went into hiding since last evening did a nude photo shoot today and dedicated it to boxer Mary Kom.
She will surrender to the Deccan Gymkhana, Pune city police on Wednesday afternoon where an FIR has been registered against her in the national flag controversy. Says a defiant and spunky Gehana Vasisth, “I had made a promise on national television that I will pose nude if India wins Gold at the Olympics. I was trying to delay the Deccan Gymkhana matter for a few days so that I could keep up my promise. However, since the police won’t give me any more time to surrender and have threatened to arrest me from my house, I decided to any way do the nude shoot and dedicate it to my favourite sportsperson Mary Kom hoping and praying that she wins a gold medal for India. The nude photos will be released publicly on Thursday, her publicist informed.
With several NGOs demanding her arrest, the Pune police were under great pressure to act in the case. The last nail in the coffin for Gehana was when the Indian Artistes and Actors Forum (IAAF) threatened to move the courts if she was not arrested within 72 hours. The police put tremendous pressure on Gehana, compelling her to decide to surrender on her own.
