Kangana Ranaut moves Bombay High Court for renewal of passport
Mumbai: Actor Kangana Ranaut has filed an application in the Bombay High Court seeking permission for renewal of her passport so that she can travel abroad in order to shoot for her next project.
Reportedly, her plea said that the Passport Authority of India objected to the renewal due to the FIR registered against her by the Bandra police for hateful tweets and sedition.
The plea has been filed through advocate Rizwan Siddiquee that stated Kangana Ranaut has to fly to Hungary for the shooting of her movie ‘Dhaakad’, from June 15 to August 30, added reports.
It is to be noted that in October 2020, the Metropolitan Magistrate court directed the Bandra police to investigate a complaint filed by Bollywood casting director Munawwar Ali Sayyed.
The complaint alleged that Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel defamed the Hindi film industry through their tweets and statements. Sayyed also accused that the duo was spreading division and hatred between Hindu and Muslim communities.
Thereafter, the Bandra police registered an FIR against them under IPC sections 135A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, etc), 295A (deliberate acts hurting religious sentiments) and 124-A (sedition) read with 34 (conspiracy) following which the sisters had been granted protection.
