While the two were posing for the photographs outside a luxury hotel in Mumbai, a group of men watching it by the pool suddenly started raising strong objections. The group, reported to be customers, were shouting at the actress and the magazine crew.
The situation, however, spiraled out of control when the shouting gave way to assault as the group tried to confiscate the cameras from the magazine crew, alleging that the photoshoot was 'promoting lesbianism'.
Reports claim the men belonged to the radical Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), an outfit led by Raj Thackeray, who's been earlier accused of 'moral policing' and related acts of violence.
Speaking on the incident, Neetu Chandra said: "First they tried to seek my attention with smiles and stares, so I acknowledged them. But as I went on with my work, the whole group of men suddenly started feeling ignored and began creating a scene. They did manage to scare me when they started to politicise the issue and scream communal slogans. That was when we had to stop the shoot."
