In the complaint, Javed said that the actor made ‘baseless comments’ that damaged his reputation. He alleged that Kangana dragged his name while referring to a ‘privilege club’ in Bollywood that excluded Sushant Singh Rajput and her in the Hindi film industry. He has further asked for proceedings against Kangana on the basis of the video that has garnered views in lakhs on various online platforms.

Javed Akhtar will have to verify to the court that the complaint has been filed by him. The verification of the complaint is still pending. Javed’s advocate, Niranjan Mundargi refused to divulge details of the complaint.  He has asked for a defamation case to be registered against Kangana Ranaut under IPC sections 499 and 500.

Meanwhile, Kangana has been also accused f spreading communal hatred, using offensive language and making derogatory comments against Bollywood and Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray in their tweets and interviews. The complainant has also alleged that both Kangana and Rangoli have been speaking ill about the media too.
