Actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli on Friday appeared before Bandra Police to record their statements, in connection with a sedition case filed against them.
Munawarli Sahil A. Sayyed, had lodged an FIR, on October 17 over the alleged hateful social media posts by the duo. Following the FIR, the sisters were issued summons to appear on three different dates which they skipped on various grounds.
A Bollywood casting director and fitness trainer, Sayyed had accused Kangana and Rangoli of defaming the film industry, portraying the people working in it in a bad light with claims of nepotism, drug addiction, communal bias, and attempting to drive a wedge between artistes of different communities, calling them murderers, insulting religions etc on the social media and through public statements.
In his complaint, he also charged the Ranaut sisters with seeking to create a Hindu-Muslim divide through objectionable comments, citing Rangoli's "make the mullahs and secular media stand in line and shoot them down; history may call us Nazis, who cares" remarks.
