The ongoing legal battle between Javed Akhtar and Kangana Ranaut has taken a new turn.

The ongoing legal battle between Javed Akhtar and Kangana Ranaut has taken a new turn. The magistrate court has summoned noted lyricist Javed Akhtar under sections 506 (criminal intimidation) and 509 (outraging the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code on the basis of complaints filed by the actress.

He has been asked to appear in court on August 5, reports India Today. Please tell that this matter is of 2021, when Kangana had told in an interview that Javed Akhtar had pressurized her to apologize to Hrithik Roshan. After this statement of the actress, the lyricist filed a defamation case against her.

This was the time when both Hrithik and Kangana were embroiled in a controversy over alleged emails. Then Kangana also filed a complaint against Javed Akhtar for threats and insults. In the last hearing in this case, Dr. Ramesh Agarwal, who is the physician of Javed Akhtar, Kangana Ranaut and Roshan family, was called in the court as a witness.

He mentioned that the meeting took place between Akhtar, Kangana and her sister Rangoli where he was also present. He also told the court that Akhtar had spoken to him about the issues between the actors and how they should reach a settlement.

Dr. Aggarwal told in the court that the meeting lasted for about 20-30 minutes. The news portal quoted Agarwal as saying that Agarwal was present at the meeting on the request of Javed Akhtar and the agenda of the meeting was that both the actors would apologize to each other. Dr Aggarwal also confirmed to Kangana's lawyer that the actress never asked him to mediate in the dispute between her and Hrithik Roshan.
