Amritsar, March 16
A local court has fixed March 19 as the next date of hearing in a case filed by a local resident against Kangana Ranaut for making derogatory remarks against farm women participating in the ongoing protest against three controversial agriculture laws at Delhi borders.
The actress had courted a controversy in November last year with her tweet with a picture of an elderly farm woman from Punjab and misrepresenting that the same woman who had hit the headlines as Shaheen Bagh dadi and that she was available for Rs100.
Jeevanjot Kaur, who has filed the complaint, said she had been actively participating in the protest from the initial days. She said thousands of other women who were attending the protest were deeply hurt by the allegedly malicious tweets of the Hindi film actress.
Aam Aadmi Party legal cell in-charge and legal counsel, Kaur said: “Earlier, a legal notice was sent to Ranaut. The case was filed after the actress failed to apologise.” He said in the next hearing, the court has asked the complainant to file evidence regarding the complaint. Sethi said her client contends that the said tweet was made to discredit the peaceful and lawful protest by spreading malicious misinformation at the behest of some powerful anti-farmer lobby.
