Actress Kangana Ranaut seems to be digging in trouble for her anti-farmer tweet last month in which he called terrorists to those people who, as Kangana thinks, were spreading misinformation about the farm laws passed by the Parliament. The Tumkuru district police on Tuesday (October 13) registered a case against the actress for her tweet against farmers who were protesting against the farm laws.
Last week, a Tumkuru court had directed the local Kyatasandra police station to book Kangana Ranaut for her tweet on farmers. The ruling came after a complaint was lodged by advocate L. Ramesh Naik last month.
"My case against popular Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is not to gain any publicity but to convey to her that what she did was wrong. When farmers take to the streets to protest against any government policy, they are not necessarily terrorists, as she thinks. I have joined many such protests, am I a terrorist? I need clarification on this and therefore I am fighting this case", Naik told IANS as quoted in India TV report.
On September 21, Kangana had tweeted, "People who spread misinformation and rumours about CAA that caused riots are the same people who are now spreading misinformation about farmers' bills and causing terror in the nation, they are terrorists".
Alleging that the tweet amounted to causing provocation, hurt, the enmity between groups, and intentional insult, Naik had filed the complaint against the actress in the Tumkur court on September 28 after the Tumkuru police refused to entertain his complaint.
Kangana is currently busy shooting for her upcoming film "Thalaivi" in which she is portraying the character of a late actress and former chief minister of Tamil Nadu, Jayaram Jayalalithaa.
