New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday quashed an FIR lodged in Hyderabad against Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier, who shot to fame following her ‘wink song’ from the film “Oru Addar Love”.

Barred the registration of any further FIR against her in connection with the controversial song, CJI Dipak Misra also rebuked the complainants for filing a case, reported NDTV.

“Somebody in a film sings a song and you have no other job but to file a case,” Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra said, rebuking complainants Muqeeth Khan and Zaheer Uddin Ali Khan, who had filed a case of hurting religious sentiments with the Hyderabad Police.

Stating that the charges did not apply to Varrier, a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud said there was “no sign of blasphemy”. The court said: “It (song) does not express any calculated tendency to insult or upset moral or public order, no sign of blasphemy.”
