Mumbai, November 3
Bollywood lyricist Javed Akhtar on Tuesday filed a criminal complaint against actor Kangana Ranaut in a local court for allegedly making defamatory and baseless comments against him in television interviews.

It 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. She had also claimed that Akhtar had threatened her not to speak about her alleged relationship with actor Hrithik Roshan, it said. Meanwhile, the police have issued a second notice to Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel, asking them to remain present at the Bandra police station on November 10. — PTI
