National Commission for Protection of Child Rights issues notice to Papon, Bollywood reacts


He wrote, “My stand is on assumption that it was actually a wrong angle and the kiss was not on the lips…” Sona Mohapatra, said she believes Papon was innocent in his intent but the video is not in good taste. Shameful!Perverse! The explanations given are ridiculous! The explanations given are ridiculous! It was just a moment of affection that is being portrayed otherwise. Filmmaker and reality TV show judge, Farah said, “I know Papon, he is a good guy. The girls parents succumbing to pressure! But there is no doubt that when I saw the video, it made me uncomfortable. There was no wrong camera angle or the child moving her face mistakenly BTW 🙄😡#papon👎”

Wasn’t smothering a child’s face with your palm rubbing color all over it for 4 secs enough as fatherly love, that u had to pull the child’s face then to strategically peck her on the lip??? Shameful!Perverse! That is the way I have been brought up and that’s how I have always been with people close to me or people I care for. (with inputs from IANS)

Singer Shaan tweeted in favour of Papon but later deleted his tweet. Singer Papon also apologised in a statement which he published on his Facebook account. The girls parents succumbing to pressure! We have guidelines on our website which clearly mentions rules for channels using children in their show,” added the official. “We are following the legal procedure. I don’t think he meant to do it, but if it was my daughter I wouldn’t like it. Related News
Such celebs shouldn’t be invited: Pahlaj Nihalani on Papon controversyAfter kiss row, Papon quits as show judgeFarah Khan-Shirish Kunder’s cute banter on Twitter is ‘Awww-dorable’After a video emerged of singer Papon kissing a minor girl inappropriately, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) on Friday issued a notice to both singer Papon and the TV channel. Haven’t felt such anger and shame to see this happen and some on tv debates actually defending the act!”

Disgusting! Still, I think the man is innocent — he just needs to be wiser.”
However, the girl’s father said that Papon is a mentor and a father-figure to his daughter. Haven’t felt such anger and shame to see this happen and some on tv debates actually defending the act! To show affection for an 11-year-old child whom I have been mentoring for a while now is not an alien concept for me,” he wrote. Anyone who knows me would be aware that I am an extremely affectionate and expressive person. Raveena herself has been a judge of a popular kids reality show. But like I said, he is not a mad person to do it while the camera was rolling. “A formality and distance in such a space would have been better…maybe boundaries should be maintained. “I am very painfully conscious of the accusations that have been made against me in the last few days. He must have genuinely not meant it, but it didn’t give me a good feeling.”
Actor Raveena Tandon, last seen in Maatr also expressed her displeasure at the incident. We felt this is a provocative case. I would request and urge the media to not pursue this further,” he said. This man Papon should be arrested! “Papon possibly should have been more aware of how this looks to a layman,” she said. I think people should not touch other people’s children and should just show affection to their own children.”
Adding to it, the Mai Hoon Na director said, “I think, if you see the girl’s face after it happened, you’ll realise how uncomfortable she was. She tweeted, “Disgusting! We will ask for their version as well and accordingly further action will be taken. This man Papon should be arrested! “What you saw in the video is not intentional. “We have seen the video and have gone through the written complaint which came to us from Supreme Court lawyer Runa Bhuyan. Necessary legal action will be taken,” the NCPCR official said. 2018-02-24T14:40:16+00:00″>
