Mumbai: Mumbai Police has summoned actress Kangana Ranaut in a defamation case filed by noted writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar. An official gave this information.
The police officer said that Kangana has been asked to appear before the Juhu police on Friday.
Akhtar had lodged a criminal complaint with the Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate in November last year for allegedly defaming and making baseless comments against her in television interviews.
Akhtar claimed that Kangana had dragged his name into it, referring to “factionalism” in Bollywood in TV interviews after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June last year.
It was alleged in the complaint that Kangana falsely claimed that Akhtar had threatened to remain silent about her alleged relationship with Hrithik Roshan. The complaint states that this has damaged Akhtar’s public image.
On January 17, the court gave the police time till February 1 to present the investigation report in this case.
