Big blow to Kangana; Bombay HC refuses urgent hearing of Ranaut’s plea on passport renewal

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday dealt a blow to Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut in the sedition case and the delay in renewal of her passport due to it. While hearing this matter, the High Court has refused to give any relief to her for the time being. Now the next hearing of this case will be on June 25.

Actually, Kangana was sure that after the hearing, the decision would be in her favor, but it did not happen. Kangana wanted the matter to be heard soon, but the court refused to do so and directed her to file a fresh petition. The High Court said that the actress has filed a wrong petition. Why is the petition filed at the last minute when the passport is expiring? After this, the court has adjourned the hearing till June 25, directing Kangana to file the petition again in a new way.

Why is Kangana’s passport not being renewed?

Kangana Ranaut’s passport expires in September 2021. She was to go to Budapest, Hungary from June 15 to August 20, 2021 for the shooting of her film “Dhakad”. The Passport Office has sought a court’s direction to renew Kangana’s passport as she is facing charges of spreading hatred among communities, spreading communalism, posting objectionable tweets and sedition. An FIR was registered against Kangana and her sister Rangoli Chandel at the Bandra police station on charges of sedition and intentionally spreading hatred. This case is of October 2020.
