Mumbai: Bollywood actor Aditya Pancholi and his wife Zarina Wahab on Friday filed a criminal defamation suit against actress Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli for making derogatory statements against Pancholi and his family members.

Mr Pancholi said, “Yes, me and my wife (Zarina Wahab) have filed a defamation case against Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel in court today. Notices were issued to them earlier. A notice was issued to Rangoli on September 20 and later on
September 25.”

The matter is expected to come up for hearing in December. Ms Ranaut’s lawyer  Rizwan Siddiqui told The Asian Age, “A befitting reply was sent to Ms Wahab and Mr Pancholi.”

The notices were issued to Ms Ranaut after her interview to a senior journalist. In the interview, Ms Ranaut had alleged that Mr Pancholi had held her under house arrest and exploited her. She had also claimed that she had approached his wife for help but she did not help her.

Later, Ms Chandel in her sister’s support made some allegations against Mr Pancholi, following which he sent legal notices to both of them.

Mr Pancholi has initially demanded an unconditional public apology from them, but since they did not apologise he decided to go ahead and file defamation case against them. Mr Pancholi claims that all the allegations levelled against him and his wife by Ms Ranaut and her sister are false and baseless.
