Mumbai: The Additional Chief Metropolitan magistrate ST Dande on Thursday rejected the request and the fresh plea that was filed by Actor Kangana Ranaut regarding the ongoing proceedings and hence to seek transfer of the defamation case that was filed against her lyricist and poet Javed Akhtar. Akhtar had filed a defamation case against Ranaut, last year November because of allegedly making defamatory and baseless comments against him during a television interview. 

Last month Ranaut had filed a transfer plea in front of the metropolitan magistrate’s court asking for the transfer and the reallocation of the case to another judge at the Andheri Metropolitan magistrate court, mentioning that she has ‘lost faith’ regarding it. Her lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui in the transfer plea mentioned that though the offenses that were against her are totally cognizable, compoundable, and bailable but still, an arrest warrant was issued against her.

Javed Akhtar’s lawyer Jay Bharadwaj went on to oppose Ranaut’s plea by mentioning that though the Andheri court had issued all the processes against her during February after observing that a prima facie case of the defamation was made out, her ‘wilful absence’, has led to a mode of delay and has further resulted into the harassment of Akhtar. Bharadwaj even added that as Ranaut has challenged the Andheri court’s order after issuing the processes against her in front of the Bombay High Court, the High Court has further upheld the procedure that is further going to be followed. 

Also in a counter statement that was filed recently by the actress, it was mentioned that after the dispute with her co-star Hrithik Roshan, Akthar had called her and her sister to his house in Juhu with “mala fide intentions and ulterior motives”. She added that Akhtar called her and her sister on the pretext of acting as a mediator but instead threatened her and forced her to tender a written apology to Roshan, thus forcefully seeking to create a document in favour of her co-star.
