Aditya Pancholi ups the ante against Kangana Ranaut; to file a criminal defamation case

After Kangana Ranaut made a series of statements about her past relationship with Aditya Pancholi, the actor sent her a legal notice accusing of defamation. Today, he is likely to up the ante and file a criminal defamation case in an Andheri court.


Lawyers of Aditya Pancholi, Zameer Khan and Shreya Srivastav, have alluded to sections 499 and 500 of the IPC in their petition. As per reports, husband and wife, Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab had no other alternative, but to move the court. On national television, Kangana kept on dragging their names whilst promoting her film 'Simran'. Speaking to a leading daily, Aditya said, "I am not angry, but I am definitely hurt by Kangana's act."


He further added," The legal team sent Kangana and her sister Rangoli notices, but their response wasn't up to the mark. We asked them to apologise unconditionally on the same national platforms where Kangana made those derogatory remarks against me. Eventually, her sister and she dragged even my son, daughter and wife into all this. That's the reason Zarina and I decided to file a defamation case against her, which is both civil and criminal."
