Bollywood’s ‘Panga Queen’ actress Kangana Ranaut has received a push from the Bombay High Court. The Bombay High Court dismissed Kangana Ranaut’s plea to quash the criminal defamation suit filed by Javed Akhtar. After the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the actor made many allegations against Javed Akhtar, after which the lyricist filed a defamation suit against him.
In November last year, Javed Akhtar filed a defamation suit against Kangana Ranaut. In the petition, the actress filed a defamation suit against lyricist Javed Akhtar.
Javed Akhtar had filed a criminal complaint against Kangana Ranaut before the Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate in November last year for making defamatory and baseless remarks in a television interview.
Akhtar claimed that Kangana had taken his name when referring to ‘sectarianism’ in Bollywood in a TV interview after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June last year. It is alleged that Kangana falsely claimed that Javed Akhtar had threatened to remain silent about her alleged relationship with Hrithik Roshan. The allegations allege that it damaged Akhtar’s public image.
