In Bollywood, it doesn’t take long for actors to fight and every tiff comes with a cost. Aditya Pancholi filed a defamation suit against Kangana and her sister alleging that the ‘Queen’ actor tried to malign his image on national television and her sister tried to ruin his image on social media by falsely accusing him of things. However, Kangana alleged that she was in an abusive relationship with Aditya when she was a newcomer and how he misused her. Rangoli had also filed an application before the Versova police station in May, claiming that her sister was exploited and abused by Aditya. However, Aditya, in turn, filed a counter application.
Aditya told reporters”They were not present in the court today. Next date of the hearing is on August 22. The case is of defamation. I can’t discuss more about it. They said they didn’t receive any summons. They have been asked to be physically present in the next hearing,” Aditya has also been under the spotlight for quite some time now for a rape case filed against him by a renowned Bollywood actress. He received an anticipatory bail in the rape case filed by the actress against him. The actor was granted interim relief from arrest till July 19 by the Dindoshi Sessions Court in Mumbai a few weeks back.
The Dindoshi Sessions court granted relief to the actor as the public prosecutor sought time to go through the papers of investigating agencies. In June, the Mumbai Police filed an FIR under charges of rape against Aditya on the complaint of the actress. In the complaint filed at Versova Police Station, Aditya has been charged under Sections 376 (rape), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison), 384 (extortion), 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The actress had recorded her statement before the Versova Police in support of her previous complaint against Aditya. Soon after the FIR was filed, the actor said that he is being “falsely implicated in this case.”
The final outcome is yet to be seen, but it is clear that the mighty have fallen and this phoenix is not rising from the ashes any time soon.
