Famous Bollywood writer Javed Akhtar filed a complaint in the magistrate’s court of Mumbai in November last year, claiming that Kangana Ranaut had made defamatory statements against him in a television interview, which allegedly damaged his reputation.
The actress has been avoiding court appearances for one reason or the other ever since summons were issued to her in February this year. The case came up hearing today and Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer sought that she be exempted from appearance for the day as she was not keeping well.
The court has become serious with the repeated excuses. The court has clarified that it will issue a warrant against her if she fails to appear on the next date of hearing on September 20th. Kangana already approached the Bombay High Court to quash the proceedings in the local court but the court refused.Follow @THEPANIPURI
