Kangana Ranaut and Javed Akhtar’s defamation case – latest update on the proceedings | Eagles Vine

In 2020, Javed Akhtar had filed a case against Kangana Ranaut for her alleged ‘defamatory and baseless comments’ against him during a television discussion post the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput. In December 2020, the court directed the Juhu police to conduct an inquiry into Akhtar’s complaint and subsequently an offence of defamation was prima facie made out and the court initiated criminal proceedings against the actress. The Bombay High Court had dismissed the plea filed by Kangana, seeking to quash the defamation case filed against her, based on the lyricist Javed Akhtar’s complaint. In the latest proceedings, Kangana Ranaut has filed a counter-complaint and made several new statements in the matter.
