The infamous controversy between Kangana Ranaut andb Entertainment Journalists Guild has taken a new turn. The 'Judgementall Hai Kya' actress has filed a civil suit against PTI Journalist (whom she had spat with), Press Club of India and the Guild in Dindoshi Court.
A copy of the complaint which has been accessed by Republic TV has been filed by Kangana Ranaut's sister and spokesperson Rangoli Chandel. The points mentioned by the plaintiff demands the court to pass an 'Ex-parte order and injuction restraining all three defendants from conducting or committing any act which shall redicule or defame Kangana in any manner whatsoever'. The complaint further says that all the published articles on the Twitter account should be removed that were against the actress. The case will be heard in the court on 7th August.
Earlier in July, Kangana Ranaut had sent a legal notice to the Entertainment Journalists Guild of India, that called for a ban on the actress, and the Press Club of India, that supported it. The notice, sent through her lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee, accused the two organisations of ‘criminally intimidating’ and ‘defaming’ Kangana and demanded, along with an apology, that the bodies withdraw the ban within 24 hours, failing which legal action would be initiated against them.
The notice termed the Entertainment Journalists Guild as ‘unregistered’ and the Press Club of India as ‘merely a press club’ with ‘no legal standing’ to ‘unconstitutionally’ ban the actress.
The lawyer also stated that the journalist, Justin Rao, who got into an argument with Kangana at a song launch of ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’ movie, indulged in ‘criminal activities’ and that the journalists supporting him had ‘violated’ Norms of Journalistic Conduct and Press Council of India Act, 1978 by ‘openly ridiculing, insulting, annoying, criminally intimidating and defaming’ his client.
