Actor Kangana Ranaut has filed a counter-complaint against lyricist Javed Akhtar in a Mumbai court, alleging “extortion and criminal intimidation”. She has accused that Javed Akhtar is threatening her and also said she had “lost faith” in the Metropolitan Magistrate’s court in Andheri.
Ms Ranaut’s lawyer has given a request to the court for transfer of the case. Her counter-complaint is in response to a defamation suit by Mr Akhtar, who has alleged she dragged his name into a TV discussion last year on the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Both of them came face-to-face in the courtroom, where Ms Ranaut arrived accompanied by her enhanced CRPF security entourage.
