Court directs cops to conduct inquiry in Javed Akhtar’s complaint against Kangana Ranaut – Times of India


MUMBAI: A magistrate’s court Saturday directed the police to conduct an inquiry and submit a report after Bollywood veteran Javed Akhtar submitted a complaint against actor Kangana Ranaut alleging she had made defamatory statements against him to a news channel. Akhtar’s statement was recorded by the court on December 3.

Akhtar was present in court today. His lawyer Niranjan Mundargi submitted arguments on the plea after which the court passed the order. The plea is scheduled to be heard again on January 16.

The video of the actor allegedly making the disparaging remarks in the aftermath of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death had gone viral.

Akhtar’s plea said he was shocked when he learnt Ranaut had on July 19 given an interview to TV anchor, Arnab Goswami, of Republic TV and Republic Bharat, damaging his “immaculate reputation by falsely attributing statements to him”.

“During the course of the interview, the accused (Ranaut) proceeded to give her opinion(s) on the circumstances around the death of Sushant Singh Rajput without appearing to have any direct personal knowledge of the circumstances,” the plea said. It said that in the same interview she referred to Akhtar as being part of a part of an alleged “suicide gang”. The plea said these false and malicious statements had an adverse effect on his reputation and had maligned his dignity.

“At the same time, needlessly dragging the complainant’s name into an unconnected sensitive matter is tantamount to extending veiled threats to the complainant, who is an extremely respectable member of the film fraternity,” the plea said.
