In Friday’s breaking news from Tinsel Town, the controversial actor, Kangana Ranaut has apparently pleaded to Andheri Magistrate Court to exempt her permanently.

She stated that she is very busy. So she will not be able to attend the hearings henceforth, as stated by her lawyer, Rizwan Siddiquee. He said that “The applicant declares that her non-appearance shall not come in the way of proceeding with trial, and she will appear through her advocate. The applicant also confirms that she has no objection if the evidence is recorded in her absence.”

Kangana’s plea continued to state that she is “one of the top-most actresses of the Hindi film industry and has won several prestigious awards including National Awards, and has also been honoured with Padma Shri, fourth-highest civilian award in India.”

It further states that “by virtue of being an actress, she needs to travel to different parts of the country and even to international locations for professional commitments. Also, huge monetary investments are made by production houses in booking such shooting locations wherein the Applicant essentially needs to participate as an Actress.”

Jay Bhardwaj, the advocate representing Jawed Akhtar opposed the plea. Although that has been turned down by the court and Andheri Magistrate Court. It was stated that, due to the pandemic situation, when traveling from one place to another is not convenient, her plea should be granted.
