A shop owner has been instructed by the local council to take down the ‘obscene’ ads displayed in his store, which also included a Longines ad featuring Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. According to reports, the shop owner tried to defend in vain saying that the posters were supplied by the manufacturers; nonetheless, he had to remove them, and also had to pay a moderate fine.

The 42-year-old Bollywood actress had been a brand ambassador of luxury watch brand Longines since 1999. The disputed poster had Aishwarya in a strapped black dress showcasing her watch, which looks far from being deemed suggestive.
