Kangana Ranaut Kangana Ranaut has moved the Bombay High Court challenging the proceedings initiated by the city magistrate in the defamation case against her by lyricist Javed Akhtar. Ranaut's lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee appealed to quash the entire proceedings initiated by the Magistrate. Kangana claimed that the Andheri Metropolitan magistrate’s court initiated proceedings based on the police's report and did not examine witnesses independently. For the unversed, Bollywood lyricist Javed Akhtar filed a defamation suit against Kangana Ranaut after she mentioned his name in connection to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in an interview to Republic TV last year.
