NEW DELHI -- A Bollywood actress and former Miss India on Friday filed a complaint of sexual harassment at the Bangur Nagar Police Station in Mumbai.

In her complaint, she said that she has been receiving phone calls and obscene videos from an unidentified person for a long time.

According to a report in the The Indian Express, the actress alleged that she has been receiving messages from an unknown person for the past one month.

"First I thought it could be a fan sending me these messages and pictures. So I didn't bother. Then this person started sending me 'non-veg' jokes, and I chose to ignore it. But then it got serious and I was uncomfortable with the pictures and messages he was sending, these were very sexual in nature. That's when I decided not to keep quiet and I had to do something about it," the report quoted the complainant saying.

The police filed an FIR on 2 March under sections 354 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
