Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut’s plea seeking renewal of her passport has been adjourned by the Bombay High Court till June 25, according to The Indian Express. And in pure Kangana fashion, she has taken to social media to express grief.
On her Koo handle, she wrote, “Mahavinashkari government has started to indirectly harass me again, my request for passport renewal has been rejected because a tapori/roadside romeo called Munnawar Ali filed a sedition case – yes, the irony of it is hilarious – on me. By the way, the case was almost dismissed by the court, yet, the court has rejected my request for a passport renewal with the reason provided being, ‘my request is vague’ hmm.”
Sharing a screenshot of her rant on Instagram, Kangana went on to compare the treatment she received to the treatment Aamir Khan received. “Please note, when Aamir Khan offended BJP government by calling India intolerant, no one held back his passport to stop his films or shoots. In no way was he tortured or harassed #JustSaying,” she wrote in her Stories.
On Tuesday, the Bombay High Court adjourned the hearing of Kangana’s plea till June 25, despite the fact that her counsel requested for an earlier date provided a film shoot of hers was in the pipeline. The bench said, “Her schedule can be arranged accordingly,” adding, “If the applicant was vigilant, she would have given all the details to the counsel. June 25 is the earlier date which we can grant you.”
Back in October 2020, Mumbai’s Bandra police station had filed an FIR against Kangana and her sister Rangoli Chandel under various sections, including sedition, after the two passed a few ‘problematic’ remarks. This FIR has caused the Passport Authority of India to raise objections to her passport renewal.
Kangana is waiting to fly to Hungary for the shoot of her film Dhaakad. She also has Thalaivi, Tejas, Manikarnika sequel and a film on Indira Gandhi under way.
