Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has been summoned by a court in Mumbai in a defamation case against her by veteran Javed Akhtar, Hindustan Times reported.
The case was filed by Akhtar earlier in 2020 and the Andheri magistrate ordered the Juhu police to investigate his complaint in December. The case was promoted when police submitted their report to the court on Monday.
The report calls for further investigation into the matter, after which Magistrate RR Khan Kangana summoned Ranaut.
Akhtar accused Ranaut of accusing him after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June 2020, and of making ‘unfounded comments’ about being part of a bullying clique in the industry.
