Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has approached the Dindoshi sessions court in Mumbai seeking quashing of the bailable warrant against her by the Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate Court. The plea was filed on March 10 and will be heard by the additional sessions court on March 15.
Javed Akhtar filed a complaint against Kangana Ranaut following an interview given by her to the news channel Republic TV. According to reports, Ranaut's statements hurt Akhtar's reputation. The veteran lyricist claimed that his name has been unnecessarily dragged in connection to the unfortunate death of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
On February 1, Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate, RR Khan, issued summons to Rananut to appear before the court on March 1, 2021. Akhtar's lawyers alleged that despite being in Mumbai, the actor did not pay heed to the summons.
Meanwhile, Ranaut's plea is filed under Section 397 of the Criminal Procedure Code which is about ‘calling for records to exercise powers of revision'. Earlier, the actor had also approached the Supreme Court seeking to transfer four criminal cases against her in various Mumbai courts to Shimla, Himachal Pradesh. One of these four cases was filed by Javed Akhtar.
