In her plea, Ranaut alleged that the 10th Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court (Andheri) was biased and prejudiced against her by refusing to grant her a permanent exemption from appearance and threatened to issue an arrest warrant for a ‘bailable and non-cognizable misdemeanor.’ A similar request had been dismissed by the chief metropolitan magistrate (CMM) in October 2021, thus she went to the sessions court.

In November 2020, the lyricist filed a suit with the Andheri magistrate, stating that the Queen actor made defamatory allegations about him in a television interview, damaging his reputation. Kangana dragged his name for no cause when discussing the possibility of a ‘coterie’ in Bollywood in the wake of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s reported death in June 2020, according to Javed Akhtar’s criminal defamation case. In turn, Ranaut filed a counter-complaint against Akhtar in the Andheri court, citing ‘extortion and criminal intimidation.’ Also Read – Gangubai Kathiawadi Beats Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Raazi After 8 Days at Box Office – Check Detailed Collection Report
