The troubles for controversial Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut seem to be increasing. A court in Bathinda has summoned actress Kangana Ranaut to appear on April 19 in a defamation case. The actress had made a controversial tweet about an elderly woman named Mohinder Kaur during the farmers’ movement. Kangana got a notice to appear in the defamation case only on the complaint of this woman.

Mahinder Kaur’s lawyer Raghuveer Singh Beniwal said that the trial went on for about 13 months and now the court has issued summons to Kangana and directed her to appear in the court. According to Mohinder Kaur’s lawyer, Mohinder Kaur had filed a case under sections 499 (defamation) and 500 (defamation) of the Indian Penal Code.

Mohinder Kaur is a resident of Bahadurgarh Jandis. She has been continuously active in the farmers’ movement. Kaur took part in the farmers movement throughout the year as an active member. She constantly lived on the Delhi border and continued to oppose agricultural laws.

Mohinder Kaur had filed a case against Kangana in a district court in Bathinda on January 4, 2021, after Kangana in a tweet sharing a picture of her claimed that it was the same famous Bilkis Bano, known as ‘Dadi’. Also known by the name and he took part in the movement in Shaheen Bagh and has been brought into the movement on a daily wage of Rs.100-100. However, Kangana later deleted the tweet.
