Kangana Ranaut has been asked to be present in Bathinda court on 19th April in an ongoing defamation case filed against her by Mohinder Kaur he was misidentified on Twitter by the Kangana as the “Shaheen Bagh dadi” the tweet is now deleted.

On Wednesday, Mohinder’s advocate Raghbir Singh Behniwal announced that the court allocated a summons to Kangana for appearing before it on 19th April. He mentioned that the complaint was filed against the actor in January 2021.

In her complaint, Mohinder addressed that the actor made “false imputations and remarks” against her in a tweet by correlating her with a woman, saying she was the same “dadi” who was part of the Shaheen Bagh protest.

“By using such remarks, the actor lowered my reputation and prestige,” Mohinder had declared in the complaint. She is a resident of Bahadurgarh Jandian village in Bathinda, Punjab.

The Bollywood actress had misidentified Kaur as Bilkis Bano, the octogenarian who made headlines during the anti-CAA protests in 2019 in the Delhi neighbourhood of Shaheen Bagh.

Kangana had shared a tweet professing that the ‘Shaheen Bagh dadi’ also joined the farmers’ uproar over the new agriculture laws at various border points of the national capital.

She had retweeted the post with pictures of the two elderly women, including Bilkis Bano, and tweeted that the “same Dadi” who starred in Time Magazine was “available in 100 rupees”. The actor deleted the tweet when she came to know from Twitter users who pointed out that both the women were different.

Kangana was last seen on screen in the political biopic Thalaivii, which was released last year. She is all geared up for her upcoming two films this year – Dhaakad and Tejas. Besides, the actor is also hosting the highly-anticipated reality show Lock Upp, which will commence streaming on MX Player and Alt Balaji from 27th February.
