An FIR was registered against actor and self-proclaimed film critic Kamaal R Khan in suburban Bandra, Mumbai.
The FIR was lodged for alleged derogatory remarks against late actors Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan on social media, police said on Thursday.
The FIR was registered on Wednesday. A complaint was lodged by Yuva Sena’s core committee member Rahul Kanal.
On April 30, Khan had allegedly taken to Twitter to announce Rishi Kapoor’s hospitalisation. He had tweeted that the actor must not die as wine shops were set to open soon, he said.
He had also allegedly taken pot-shots at Irrfan Khan, a day before his death on April 29, the official added. “We have registered an FIR against Kamaal R Khan for making derogatory remarks about both the deceased actors under section 294 (punishment for obscene acts or words in public) and other provisions of the IPC,” a senior police official said.
No arrest has been made so far as investigation is on, he added. Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor succumbed to leukaemia on April 30. This was less than 24 hours after Irrfan Khan died of colon infection on April 29.
