Bollywood Actress Kangana Ranaut gained 20 kilos for her "most ambitious" biopic "Thalaivi", where she plays one of southern India's most prominent politicians and actresses, the late Jayalalithaa.
The order by Bandra 12th Court Magistrate Jaidev Ghule came in a plea by Munawwarali alias Sahil A Sayyed, a Bollywood casting director, said his lawyer Ravish F Zamindar.
The FIR, against Kangana Ranaut and Rangoli Chandel, has been filed under IPC sections 153A (promoting enmity), 295A (malicious acts meant to outrage the religious feelings), and 124A (sedition).
According to police, the FIR states that through their tweets, the sisters tried to "malign the Indian Constitution and image of the Maharashtra government, hurt sentiments of Muslims and tried to create division between Hindus and Muslims".
As per ABP news, the complainants reportedly told the court that Kangana and Rangoli have been spreading "communal hatred" and dividing communities via tweets. The petition has now reportedly turned into an FIR after the Bandra Court has ordered the Mumbai Police to file an FIR against the two. I found the cognizable offence has been committed by the accused. The complaint mentions her recent tweets where she compared the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) to Babur Sena, claiming that she is the first person to make movies on Jhansi Ki Rani (Manikarnika) and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and comparing Mumbai to POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir). The accused used social media like Twitter. "Thorough investigation is necessary by the expert... search and seizure is necessary in this case", Metropolitan Magistrate Jaydeo Khule said in his order. He had directed the concerned police station to investigate the complaint.
During the hearing, the complainant had submitted that the "Queen" actress continuously defamed Bollywood film industry for the last couple of months as a hub of nepotism, favouritism, through her tweets from her official Twitter and TV interviews.
