Mandira…FIR Se

(Mandira says sorry after saree kicks up a storm)

So, Mandira Bedi invites an FIR, courtesy her designer saree that places the Indian flag at her feet, well almost.

Mandira’s attire has hardly gone unnoticed. So when she decked out in a Satya Paul saree, a patchwork of the national flags of 16 World Cup nations, the Indian tri-colour was seen at her ankles.

Subsequently, an FIR was lodged against Mandira and designer Punit Nanda for violating the Flag Code and insulting the tri-colour.

After her alarmed husband called her to inform about the row back home, Mandira was to quickly change the saree and apologise for the "inadvertent" lapse.

"I deeply apologise... I didn't mean to disrespect the (Indian) national flag," she said.

Last time it was a tattoo on her back that got the goat of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) and Mandira had to tender an unconditional apology to save her skin.
