A court has issued summons to Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel, seeking their appearance in connection with defamation cases filed by actor Aditya Pancholi and his wife.

While the cases against Kangana are related to her interviews and statements made during a television show, those against her sister are related to comments made on social media. “She (Kangana) had claimed that Aditya kept her under house arrest and she registered an FIR against him, but since no such FIR was ever registered, there is prima facie case that she defamed him,” Pancholi’s lawyer Shreya Shrivastava said. Rangoli defamed the actor and his wife by making allegations against them on social media, the lawyer claimed.

She allegedly tweeted that there was an FIR against Pancholi in 2005-06.

The matter is posted for further hearing on July 26, Shrivastava added.
