Following this, Akhtar’s lawyer, Jay Bharadwaj, urged that a non-bailable warrant be issued against Ranaut for failing to appear in court several times. However, her advocate, Rizwan Siddiquee, appeared in the court on behalf of the actress and cleared the air that the actress is ready to appear before the court on July 4. The next hearing in the case will take place on July 4 at 4 pm.

According to reports, Kangana has also demanded that  she is ready to record her statements in front of the magistrate but in the absence of the media.

This case dates back to 2020, when Javed Akhtar filed a defamation complaint against Kangana. After the suspicious death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput two years ago, Kangana Ranaut allegedly said in an interview that the noted lyricist belonged to the “suicide gang” of Bollywood, which had pushed “outsiders” like her to end their lives. Soon after, Javed Akhtar filed a defamation complaint against Kangana at the Magistrate Court.

Kangana did not stay behind and filed an extortion complaint against Akhtar, which the court is ready to hear following the actress’s appearance and statement.
