FIR registered against Kangana Ranaut, her sister Rangoli for spreading communal hatred

Kangana Ranaut has started the training for her upcoming action films Teja and she gave a sneak peek of her workout to her social media followers. The complaint has been reportedly filed by Casting director Sahil Ashrafali Sayyed. On the directions of the court, Bandra Police registered a First Information Report against Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel under IPC sections 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, etc.), 295A (deliberate acts hurting religious sentiments) and 124-A (sedition), a police official said.

Citing her tweets about the Palghar lynching where she referred to the BMC as "Babur Sena", Sayyed said "Kangana is creating divisions between Hindu artistes and Muslim artistes.is maliciously bringing religion in nearly all her tweets".

The complaint filed before the court stated that Ranaut was "creating divisions between communities and spreading communal hatred".

Reportedly, Metropolitan Magistrate Jaydeo Y Ghule observed that on prima facie perusal of the complaint and submissions the court has found that a cognizable offence has been committed by the accused.

Recently, Kangana revealed on social media that she had gained 20 kgs for Thalaivi and that it is time for her to shed the extra kilos as the movie is nearing completion. He had directed the concerned police station to investigate the complaint.

Among other things, Sayyed accused Kangana and Rangoli of defaming Bollywood, portraying people working in it in a bad light with claims of nepotism, drug addiction, communal bias, attempting to create a rift between artistes of different communities, insulting religions, calling them murderers etc on social media and through public statements. The complaint referred to various tweets by Ranaut over the past few months, including a tweet where she referred to Mumbai as POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir). "The thorough investigation is necessary by the expert...search and seizure is necessary in this case". "Right of speech and expression should not be construed as promoting communal disharmony".
