Kangana Ranaut made derogatory remarks against farm women participating in the ongoing protest against three controversial agriculture laws at Delhi borders, to which a local woman filed a case against Kangana. The local court has fixed March 19 as the next hearing of the case.
Earlier, Kangana made a derogatory comment in November, last year, with a picture of an old woman protesting at the Delhi borders is the same woman who was at Shaheen Bagh protesting. She labelled the woman as ‘Shaheen Bagh dadi’ and that she was available for Rs.100.
Jeevanjot Kaur, who has filed the complaint, said she had been actively participating in the protest from the initial days. She said thousands of other women who were attending the protest were deeply hurt by the allegedly malicious tweets of the Hindi film actress.
Aam Aadmi Party’s legal counsel, Kaur said, “Earlier, a legal notice was sent to Ranaut. The case was filed after the actress failed to apologise.” He said in the next hearing, the court has asked the complainant to file evidence regarding the complaint. Sethi said her client contends that the said tweet was made to discredit the peaceful and lawful protest by spreading malicious misinformation at the behest of some powerful anti-farmer lobby.
