Ranaut had told the Court the authority was raising objections due to the FIRs registered against her..During the hearing, Ranaut had made a statement to the Court that there were "no criminal cases are pending against the petitioner in any Court arising out of two FIRs"; one registered in connection with her tweets allegedly promoting religious enmity and the second pertaining to alleged copyright infringement..Based on this statement, the passport authority had earlier assured the Court that Ranaut's passport renewal application will be considered as expeditiously as possible..Akhtar has now sought to intervene in the matter. His intervention petition filed through Advocate Jay Bharadwaj contends that the statement made by Ranaut is false, misleading and made with an intention to obtain a favourable order..He submitted that the query put forth by the Court essentially required Ranaut's lawyer, Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee, to confirm that "no criminal cases were pending against Ranaut". .However, Akhtar claims that the response made by Ranaut's lawyer was limited to criminal proceedings arising out of only two FIRs and without mentioning another pending criminal defamation complaint which had been filed by Akhtar against Ranaut..Javed Akhtar files criminal defamation complaint against Kangana Ranaut .He stated further that Ranaut should have brought this factual position before the Court, especially when she was in complete knowledge of pendency of this criminal case. .The complaint had been filed by Akhtar against Ranaut's statements made against him in an interview with Arnab Goswami which was aired by Republic TV..He stated in his application that the Magistrate had issued notice to Ranaut in February 2021 and upon her failure to appear in the Court, had also issued a bailable warrant in March 2021..Akhat's contends that Ranaut had knowledge of the proceedings based on the following facts:She had appeared before the Magistrate and applied for bail which was granted by the Magistrate.
