A Metropolitan Magistrate court in Mumbai has directed police to investigate  the criminal defamation complaint filed by Lyricist and poet Javed Akhtar against actor Kangana Ranaut for remarks made against him dragging his name into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

The said complaint has been filed before the Metropolitan Magistrate Court at Andheri under Sections 499 (defamation) and 500 (punishment for defamation) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 200 (examination of complainant) of Code of Criminal Procedure.

Court has forwarded the Complaint to Juhu police station and directed to file the report by January 16

According to the said complaint, Kangana gave an interview to Republic TV alleging that the Hindi film industry was run by a mafia and named Mahesh Bhatt and Javed Akhtar as people who are a part of this alleged 'Mafia'. She said -

"Then there are Javed Akhtar and company, who are so-called atheists. But their whole group is about keeping an eye on who is Islam friendly and who is not Islam friendly."

The complainant has alleged that the video of the said interview on Republic TV has been watched by millions of people on YouTube alone, which is damaging his reputation.

Lately, several cases have been filed against the 33-year-old actor for her tweets as well as remarks made on other media platforms. A Bandra Court ordered registration of FIR against her last month for tweets allegedly promoting religious disharmony between hindus and muslims. Thereafter, a Mumbai based lawyer filed two separate complaints against her, for tweets against the judiciary and tweets promoting communal divide. This led to Andheri Court seeking an inquiry against the actor and her sister Rangoli Chandel.

Even a Court in Karnataka ordered registration of FIR against Kangana for her tweet against farmers protesting against the farm bills.
