Meanwhile, according to a report, the lyricist on Tuesday filed a criminal complaint against the ‘Manikarnika’ actress in a local court for allegedly making defamatory and baseless comments against him in television interviews. According to the Mumbai Mirror report, Akhtar filed the complaint seeking action against Ranaut under the relevant provisions of the IPC for defamation.
Reportedly, the complaint stated that the actress claimed Akhtar had threatened her to not speak about her alleged relationship with actor Hrithik Roshan. The complaint added that Ranaut dragged Akhtar’s name while referring to a “coterie” existing in Bollywood following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June.
It further said that all these comments made by the actress tarnished Akhtar’s reputation.
