Katy Perry might face court action after making an "obscene and lascivious" gesture in front of her Indian fans.
The Firework singer apparently caused controversy when she performed at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in April this year.
The singer invited Australian bowler Doug Bollinger to join her on stage, and reportedly asked Bollinger to show her how to hold a bat. The cricket player then stood behind her and wrapped his arms around her. As she held her microphone, he put his hands on hers and then lowered the microphone to her groin.
Lawyer K Jebakumar has laid an indecency claim against the two, saying that their playful on-stage antics was "obscene and lascivious" and "distracted students who were writing exams at the time".
The case will be heard on 31 July at a High Court in Madras where the judge will consider whether Jebakumar's claim is valid and if the two need to be formally charged.
The two are not required to attend any court proceedings.
According to The Sun, a similar action was filed against Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan, while local media said Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra and IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla were also included in the claim.
A source added: "They were only having a bit of fun but obviously it can be deemed offensive. It may have been a bit saucy given where they were - but this all seems a bit excessive."
