 Nagpur   : Bollywood hottie Mallika Sherawat has approached the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court here to withdraw criminal cases filed against her by a social worker.

 Rajnikant Borile had filed an application before the Judicial Magistrate First Class at Pandharkawda in Yavatmal district, seeking registration of offences under IPC section 291 (continuance of nuisance after injunction to discontinue) against Mallika on April 8, 2009.

The same court issued summons to Mallika on April 3, 2010 but she failed to appear before it.

Borile had alleged that the actress had performed "obscene acts" in films like 'Shaadi Ke Pehle', 'Murder' and 'Maan Gaya Mughal-e-Azam' which were affecting the society and younger generation in particular, he said.

Since the actor was performing for gaining money, she should be booked under IPC Section 291, he contended. Mallika was accordingly booked.

Justice P D Kode, Judge at the HC Bench here on Thursday, while declining to postpone the hearing, issued notices to State Government and the respondent Borile, asking them to file reply by September 23. PTI
