Old Bollywood controversies are here to haunt. Kangana Ranaut and Aditya Pancholi are at loggerheads once again. The actress who had accused Pancholi of physical and mental abuse in her old interviews might have to face the law now. According to a report in a daily, the Race 2 actor has filed a complaint against the Queen actress earlier this month. The FIR that was filed at Versova police station, is a counter application to Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel’s complaint against the actor stating that he exploited and abused Ranaut. Pancholi chose the legal way by filing the FIR, which also states that Ranaut’s lawyer threatened to file a rape case against him if he didn’t take back the defamation suit that he filed against the actress.
The actor has filed the complaint along with the video footage of his meeting with Kangana’s lawyer. Talking about the same, Aditya in a statement said, “I have already filed a defamation case against the actor, which is subjudice. Following the defamation case, her lawyer, on January 6 this year, threatened to file a rape case against me if I didn’t withdraw the defamation case against his client. Thankfully, I have recorded the 18-minute meeting with him. The video in the form of evidence has been submitted to the court and to the police as well.” In another statement Aditya said, “I submitted my application with the police against Siddique, Kangana and Rangoli earlier this month. I have submitted the video in the police station and court. Rape is the worst kind of crime that can happen [to any woman].”
Meanwhile, a senior police office from the station was quoted, “We have asked both of them to record statements. We will conduct an inquiry before registering an FIR.” (Agencies)
