Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has regularly been a part of the news for her strong and controversial statements.

For this defamation case, the metropolitan magistrate of Andheri, Mumbai, RR Khan, had issued a summon to Kangana Ranaut on February 1. According to the summon, she was supposed to appear for a hearing on March 1. When Kangana failed to appear for the hearing, despite a legal summons, she was issued a bailable warrant.
