Javed Akhtar had filed a criminal case against Kangana Ranaut for making defamatory statements against him on several news channels. He had claimed that she dragged his name in Sushant Singh Rajput’s case unnecessarily during one of the interviews. He further asked for proceedings against the Dhaakad actor on the basis of the video that has garnered lakh of views on various online platforms. Javed Akhtar has asked for a defamation case to be registered against Kangana Ranaut under IPC sections 499 and 500.

In the interview, Kangana spoke about her conversation with Akhtar at his house, where a doctor was also present. However, Javed Akhtar and Kangana are claiming different things regarding the case. However, the only witness in the case, the doctor, can only reveal what happened exactly as he is known to both Kangana and Akhtar. The court has asked police to question the doctor and attach his statement with the report.
