Kangana Ranaut is trying to delay proceedings, claims Javed akhtar as he files an affidavit in Bombay HC

In a defamatory case that Javed has filed against Kangana, she is failing to show up at the court

Actress Kangana Ranaut and lyricist Javed Akhtar’s legal fight has been continuing for quite some time. It all started when Kangana Ranaut said something derogatory against Akhtar in a tv show. Farhan Akhtar’s dad had lodged a defamation suit against the actress, and in February 2021, the Magistrate summoned Ranaut to appear for the court hearing.  TBut tthe actress did not show up. The most recent development is that Javed has submitted a document in the Bombay High Court stating that the petition filed by the Panga actress is only for the purpose of prolonging the defamatory proceedings brought against her before the Magistrate Court in Andheri.

As per a source in India Today, Javed Akhtar’s affidavit indicates that Kangana’s claims are entirely false and baseless. It further adds, “The current Petition was filed with the express purpose of delaying the proceedings with no foundation. Furthermore, on the previous five dates, the Applicant (Ranaut) has failed to appear before the Ld. 10th MM (Magistrate Court) on various grounds.”

Actress Kangana Ranaut has asked Justice Revati Mohite-Dere to dismiss Javed Akhtar’s defamation complaint on behalf of the unnamed. The actress sought to vacate the whole case, including all orders and summonses made to date, on the grounds that they are a direct result of the Magistrate’s jurisdiction. In opposition to this petition, Javed Akhtar argues that neither the Magistrate’s orders, including the issue of process and warrant, necessitated the intervention of the High Court. Even after this, Kangana did not attend and contested the Magistrate Court’s order to issue procedure before the Dindoshi Session Court. In April, the Sessions Court denied her appeal.

Kangana Ranaut then sought the single bench of Justices Mohite-Dere. On Monday, Akhtar’s affidavit was filed to the court, which will now hear the case on August 18.
