Actor Kangana Ranaut has got into trouble over her comment on Bilkis dadi, one of the Shaheen Bagh dadis.
Kangana Ranaut has got into a legal trouble over her comment on Bilkis dadi, one of the Shaheen Bagh dadi. The actress has been served a legal notice for comment on Bilkis dadi.
Ranaut had claimed that she (dadi) was available for hire to make an appearance in protests for Rs 100, through a tweet, which is now deleted.
Kangana tweeted, “Ha ha ha, she is the same dadi who featured in Time magazine for being the most powerful Indian… And she is available in 100 rupees. Pakistani journos have hijacked international PR for India in an embarrassing way. We need our own people to speak for us internationally,”.
Advocate Hakam Singh, sent a notice to Ranaut. In his legal notice he said that he has sent a legal notice for a tweet misidentifying Ms. Mohinder Kaur as Bilkis dadi with an insinuation that she(Ms Kaur) was available as a hired protestor for Rs 100. The notice gives Ranaut 7 days to issue an apology failing which a defamation case will be pursued.”
However, in a fact check run by an online portal, Bano said that she was not the one see in the photo, but was sitting at her home in Shaheen Bagh.
Actor Urmila Matondkar, who joined the Shiv Sena, recently said that Ranaut had been given undue importance. “I will certainly not engage in any war of words with her. I am not a fan of her and I think we all have talked about her much more than what she actually deserves, so I don’t think there is anything to talk about her. We live in a democratic country and all the citizens in our country have the right to freedom of speech, so they should do what they want to do,”
