Self-proclaimed film critic and controversial figure Kamaal R Khan, also known as KRK, has found himself in legal trouble yet again. This time, an Indore court has issued an arrest warrant against him in a defamation case filed by Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpayee.

Manoj Bajpayee is living in Mumbai but he went all the way to Indore to file a case against me. Means he doesn’t trust @MumbaiPolice @CPMumbaiPolice and Mumbai courts. Case hearing is at Supreme Court on 20th march 2023. pic.twitter.com/IfaYlt54MY
