  Bombay HC quashes Kangana Ranaut's plea seeking stay in Javed Akhtar's defamation trial

The Bombay High Court has dismissed a plea submitted by actor Kangana Ranaut, which sought to halt a defamation trial demanded by poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar. Arguing that Akhtar's complaint against her and her complaints against him were cross-complaints, the Bollywood actor has requested a stay on the trial, urging for a joint hearing.

Justice PD Naik stated that the trial in Javed Akhtar's case had already commenced, and the relief sought by Ranaut at this juncture couldn't be granted. Noting that Akhtar's complaint is "first in point of time and process has been issued, "he added, "considering the factual matrix, no relief can be granted." Ranaut filed her complaint at a belated stage, he added.

Javed Akhtar had filed a complaint against Kangana Ranaut in 2020 about certain derogatory remarks that she made against him in an interview. Backfiring at him, Ranaut filed a counter-complaint against Akhtar in 2021, alleging criminal conspiracy, extortion, and invasion of her privacy.

Regarding Ranaut's accusation, a court had summoned Akhtar last year. However, Akhtar had appealed to the sessions court, which halted the case's progress. Until the court decides on Akhtar's request for revision, the criminal procedures related to Ranaut's complaint are temporarily suspended.
