Mumbai: Actor Kangana Ranaut has contacted a session court, which is challenging a collateral warrant issued by a magistrate, which filed against him by the songwriter Javed Akhtar in a defamation complaint.

The court of Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate issued a bailable warrant against the actor after appearing before the court on March 1.

The magistrate said that Ranavat had a freedom to contact a High Court to challenge the summons, but he could not escape the presence before his court. Earlier, the police had deposited a report on Akhtar’s complaint and said that the crime of defamation has been done against Ranapa.
Akhtar has accused the actor of talking about ‘Kotery’ in Bollywood after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput in June last and accused the actor of harming his reputation.
Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui said that his petition will be heard on Monday in the session court.
He said that the summons themselves were issued without compliance with the Code of Criminal Procedure, because the oath of four witnesses named by Akhtar was not investigated by Akhtar.
