“High Court Denies Kangana Ranaut’s Plea to Stay Defamation Proceedings Against Javed Akhtar”

Mumbai High Court Rules on Kangana Ranaut and Javed Akhtar Legal Tussle

In the ongoing legal saga between Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut and lyricist Javed Akhtar, the Mumbai High Court delivered a verdict denying Ranaut’s plea to stay the defamation proceedings initiated by Akhtar. The complaint filed by Akhtar stemmed from remarks made by Ranaut in a 2016 interview, triggering a legal battle between the two personalities.

Ranaut, in response, filed a cross-complaint against Akhtar, alleging criminal conspiracy, extortion, and invasion of privacy. Seeking a joint trial for both complaints, Ranaut approached the High Court, arguing that the incidents leading to both complaints were intertwined and should be tried together to prevent conflicting judgments.

Justice PD Naik, however, observed that the trial in Akhtar’s case had already commenced, rendering the relief sought by Ranaut untimely. The Court emphasized that considering the factual context, no relief could be granted at this stage.

Earlier, a sessions court had stayed the criminal proceedings arising from Ranaut’s complaint until a revision application by Akhtar was heard. Ranaut contended that while proceedings from her complaint were on hold, those from Akhtar’s complaint were continuing, posing an injustice. Akhtar’s counsel argued against the petition, asserting that Ranaut’s move was an attempt to delay the defamation case.

As the legal battle continues, the Mumbai High Court’s recent ruling adds another chapter to the complex and contentious dispute between Kangana Ranaut and Javed Akhtar.
