Kangana Ranaut has appeared before a Mumbai court in defamation case filed by lyricist and writer, Javed Akhtar.
Ranaut, who attended court with sister Rangoli Chandel, claims that Akhtar had threatened and insulted her after she refused to apologise to Hrithik Roshan in their spat.
According to IndiaToday, Ranaut told the court, “We will not take time to put up impostors, then it will be open to the public to know that your affair was not with Hrithik but with impostors, then your face will be blackened, there will be so much infamy in the public that you will have no other way except suicide. We have evidence, they have all the ministries, apologize and save yourself. A girl from a good family will drown in shame. If you have little shame to save your honor, then don’t insist.”
Akhtar filed the case in 2020 after the actress alleged “defamatory and baseless comments” about him in a television interview.
