Mumbai: A defamation suit has been filed against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut and Javed Akhtar. The matter was heard in a dark court today. Javed Akhtar’s wife and Bollywood star Shabana Ajmer reached the court for the hearing of the case. However, Kangana Ranaut did not appear in court today.
Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui said that the actress was in poor health due to which she could not appear in court. His lawyer demanded an exemption from court appearances. The court then ordered the actress to appear in court on September 20. At the same time, the judge further said that if Kangana does not appear in court at the next hearing, an arrest warrant will be issued against her.
Kangana’s lawyer presented Kangana’s medical certificate to the court and explained the reason for her non-appearance. But, even after that, he may have to face the court at the next hearing. Kangana’s lawyer said in his defense that the allegation against Jayakumar Bharadwaj that the hearing on the matter was being delayed was false.
He said- ‘Kangana needs to be tested. What if he comes here and finds Covid positive? Because, people have been found to be positive even after taking both doses of the corona vaccine. In fact, Javed Akhtar’s lawyer Jayakumar Bharadwaj alleged that Kangana did not reach the court even after multiple notices were issued. He is trying to delay the hearing. In this regard, Kangana’s lawyer offered an explanation.
