Cairo: A Kuwaiti criminal court has sentenced a Pakistani actor to two years in prison after convicting him of violating public decency, according to a media report.

The court also ordered the actor Farhan Al Ali to pay a fine of 1,000 Kuwaiti dinars and deportation from the country after serving the penalty, Al Qabas newspaper said.

Al Ali, who performed in a number of Kuwaiti TV serials and stage shows, were charged with releasing a video deemed immoral on social media. In June, Kuwaiti media reported that the actor had appeared naked in a video on his snapchat account. At the time, he claimed his snapchat had been hacked.
