Mumbai: Two police complaints have been filed against Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut for insulting Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and causing communal hatred among the public at large.
One of the complaints filed by Arun Srikant Mishra at Dindoshi police station accused Ranaut of committing sectarian discrimination and bringing it to the public at large.
The complaint states that Ranaut has compared the alleged incident with Kashmiri Pandits and to do so has tried to create discrimination against a particular community, which is also against the law.
It said that on 9 September, Ranaut aired a video on social media in which he used “inflammatory and derogatory words” against Uddhav Thackeray and in doing so she tried to “dilute the character and challenge the dignity of the Chief Minister of state.
In another complaint filed by lawyer Nitin Mane at Vikhroli police station, Ranaut was also accused of insulting Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
This comes after Ranaut engaged in a bitter fight with Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut after her remarks saying she feels insecure in Mumbai after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput and has no confidence in the Mumbai Police.
On September 9, Ranaut hit Uddhav Thackeray and film director Karan Johar in a video message on Twitter. Later, she had tweeted that she will “expose” both Thackeray and “Karana Johar Gang.”
