Kangana Ranaut has been at loggerheads with Javed Akhtar since long. It all started with her tiff with the Roshan family. Earlier, in an interview with Pinkvilla, she said, “Once Javed Akhtar had called me to his house and told me that Rakesh Roshan and his family are very big people. If you don’t apologise to them, you will have nowhere to go. They will put you in jail, and eventually, the only path would be that of destruction…you will commit suicide. These were his words. Why did he think if I don’t apologise to Hrithik Roshan, I would have to commit suicide? He shouted and yelled at me. I was shaking in his house.”
In many occasions, we have seen Kangana lashing out at Akhtar and his family. Now, as per a report in SpotboyE, sources informed the portal that Javed Akhtar has filed an elaborate defamation case against Kangana for her repeated allegations that he summoned her to his home and “threatened” her for speaking out about her alleged relationship with Hrithik Roshan. Sources close to Javed Akhtar said that no such threat was ever issued.
The portal quoted a source saying, “Javed Saab is by nature very tolerant. But this was going on for too long. Remedial action had to be taken. Javed Saab has filed an elaborate defamation case against Kangana.”
The report also states that the case has now opened in court and Javed Akhtar is ready for a long battle ahead, ‘with no question of an out-of-court settlement’.
Kangana is yet to react to this. Stay tuned for more updates on this.
