The court case between Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut and writer Ashish Kaul has taken a new turn. Writer Ashish Kaul had alleged copyright infringement against Kangana a few days ago. Now writer Ashish has filed a contempt petition against the actress in the Bombay High Court. On this whole matter, Ashish’s lawyers Adnan Sheikh and Yogita Joshi have said, ‘We have written a letter to Javed Akhtar ji and from his reply it came to know that the facts given by Kangana Ranaut during the passport application are wrong and this one is a serious offence. We will keep this matter in the High Court and if this fraud is proved in the court then its result will definitely come.

Fight between Kangana and Ashish
Kangana had announced a few days ago that she would soon make a film titled ‘Manikarnika Returns The Legend of Didda’. The book on which this film is based is authored by Ashish Kaul. It was only after Kangana’s announcement that Ashish filed a petition against Kangana for copyright infringement and now the matter has reached the Bombay High Court.

Kangana Ranaut and Javed Akhtar
The defamation case going on between Bollywood’s well-known music composer Javed Akhtar and actress Kangana Ranaut is in tremendous headlines. Javed Akhtar had filed a defamation case against the actress only last year. In which Javed Akhtar had alleged that Kangana had made many objectionable statements against him during an interview in July 2020. At the same time, according to media reports, Kangana has been warned by the court regarding this case that the actress has to be present in the court on the next hearing date.

Recently, Kangana Ranaut filed a petition in a court in Mumbai. In which she had sought exemption from personal appearance in the defamation case filed by Bollywood lyricist Javed Akhtar, but the court has directed her to be present on the next date of hearing. The magistrate has also dismissed the petition filed by Javed Akhtar’s lawyer, seeking issuance of an arrest warrant against Kangana. The judge said in the hearing that if Kangana Ranaut does not appear in the next hearing, then Javed Akhtar’s lawyer can file the petition again.
