A year ago, Javed Akhtar filed a case against Thalaivi actress Kangana Ranaut for making defamatory and baseless comments during a television interview. Soon in December, the court ordered the Juhu police to conduct an inquiry against the actress.
In the last month, Kangana through her lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui had filed a transfer petition to transfer this case stating the trial judge RR Khan was biased. while pleading for this the actress said that she has “lost faith” in the magistrate’s court.
However, the veteran lyricist had stated that the plea was filed only to delay the proceedings before the Andheri metropolitan magistrate court could come to a conclusion.
After hearing both sides of the arguments, the court rejected Ms. Ranaut’s petition on Thursday.
